River Smallies & The Hippie...

Written by
  With my younger brother Josh and I both having a day off during the week, we made plans to float my favorite section of a local river together. I had been on this float trip last year with my wife and a friend of mine, and I knew my brother would enjoy the trip. He was up for it and…

The Curse Of Pre-Fishing

Written by
Prior preparation prevents poor performance… or something like that.  I think I might have left a word out of there.  Anyway, the reason we prepare in advance is to ensure a better outcome.  In fishing, especially tournament fishing, we want to scout the area ahead of time so as not to see the area for the first time when it…

Leash it!!!

Written by
We have all heard about folks losing gear to the water gods.  Whether by accidentally dropping it or even turtling your yak. Everyone pays a price at some point.  Since I started kayak fishing 3 years ago I was worried about losing my gear and money sinking down into the abyss so I started leashing almost everything or making sure…

Never lose your Sunglasses again!

We have all heard the horror stories about people losing their brand new $400 pair of Costas on a fishing trip. They watched as their beloved set of shades hit the water and slowly drifted away to the dark depths of the sea.   As kayak anglers, we all fear the day when one of our pieces of equipment hits…

Written by
Thursday, October 10, 2013 turned out to be a great day for me. After an early morning run to Half Hitch Tackle in PCB, FL for gear and bait, Brian Singley and I launched from our condo’s beach. The water was quite calm considering tropical storm Karen past through the area that week. Once on the water we paddled past…

Try something new

Written by
I will admit it. I am a power fisherman. Spinners, crankbaits, lipless cranks, spoons and square bills are my usual arsenal. Most days I am able to catch my fair share of fish with my favorites, but today was just not that day. I spent nearly 4 hours fishing my home waters at Stillhouse Hollow Lake in Killeen, TX with…

You got a Slayer Propel, now what?

Written by
So I recently took the plunge and bought a Native Slayer Propel 13 a few months ago and I immediately dove into modifications and rigging. Even though the boat cost near $2400, I just couldn't help myself. My first mod was the most in depth by far; the venerable fish finder. I had been sitting on a Lowrance Elite 4…

Florida Red Snapper Data Collection Help

Written by
Kayak fishermen targeting red snapper this year along Florida's East Coast should aim to help out Florida Fish And Wildlife (FWC) with the information about their catches. The FWC will be asking anglers to take a quick survey about their catch that day. This info will help them design future regulations on the red snapper season.

I read an article published on Fisherynation.com today. it was titled Why are we Importing our own fish? The article talked about how 86% of the fish we consume in the United States is Imported from other countries, while one third of what we catch is exported to some of those same countries.
Pulling double duties, Werner Paddles Pro Staff Jeff Herman was acting as a tech rep at the LKS tournament, Saturday June 7. While talking paddle design he was also handing out raffle tickets. The catch was, the only way to get a Werner raffle ticket was to land a redfish during the tournament and release it alive. Out of seventy…
