Kayak Fishing Clooper Lake, Maryland

The other week I volunteered as a guide for another Saturday event for the Maryland chapter of Heroes on the Water (HOW). This event was held on Clopper Lake, part of Seneca Creek State Park in Gaithersburg, MD.   My Friday night routine was the same as for any other kayak fishing excursion: prep rods and reels, inventory and select…

Bed Extender - Another Option

Written by
Even with a safety flag attached, I have always worried someone (not paying attention) would make my Cuda a little shorter, especially in low light hours.  In my past life, I was a fabricator by trade.  Luckily, I still have access to the shop that I worked at; I’m able to play around with some ideas I have. Most states…

I attended my third fishing derby of the year this past weekend at a Lake Gregory in the San Bernardino mountains of southern California. I had never heard of this lake until just a month ago when I happened to come across a flier online about a fishing derby so I did a little research and after noticing it was…

Hawg Trough and your tournament identifier

Written by
Anyone who has fished kayak CPR (catch, photo, release) tournaments knows the difficulty presented when trying to photograph your fish on the Hawg Troug while keeping the fish on the trough and your identifier in place.  In my second CPR tournament, I lost my only 2 fish of the day while trying photograph them.  So I know first hand the…

My first blog

Written by
Seeing as I had accrued a fair amount of comp time over the past month, I decided to use it up today for a chance to go chase some smallmouth with fellow YA member and Regional Pro Andrew Morrow.  I met Andrew at an undisclosed gas station a little after sunrise this morning.  The location we were fishing was only…

NRS Crux Drysuit Review

Written by
Many folks in the water sports world have heard of the company NRS before.  They have been a long standing company that offer a variety of products that fit many purposes.  I recently had a chance to put their Crux drysuit to the test.  The suit had stocking feet and was lightweight, perfect for those Spring days when the water…

Newb Fly Tying 2

Written by
The addiction to fly tying has taken hold.  I am very lucky and blessed to have some great friends teach me and provide some products.  After chatting with a co-worker I tried to tie some more flies using less and shorter hair.  They turned out ok, but still didn’t look that good.  I shared these with my co-worker and he…
