Quality video takes time - and a good Internet connection - to get to you. Here's more of our continuing coverage of kayak fishing gear from ICAST 2014 - we hope you approve! There are a bunch of videos here, and a few more to follow shortly.
Day Two at ICAST is in the books! We doubled the number of manufacturer interviews, great for you but a TON of work for Kramer. We stopped by the Native Watercraft booth and got the low down on the new Slayer “Propel 10”, talked to Hobie about the “Pro Angler 17 Tandem”, and a ton of other cool products.
Good morning, YakAngler crew! Day One at ICAST was a blast! Your YA team was hard at work, checking out the latest and greatest coming to the kayak fishing world. Kramer was up until the wee hours getting these video interviews ready and uploaded. Take a look, and share with your friends!
This Tuesday - July 15 - the YakAngler crew descends on Orlando, FL for ICAST (International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades) 2014. ICAST is a sportsman’s paradise, with hundreds of fishing and outdoor companies all under one roof. We want this year’s ICAST experience to be as interactive as possible.
The dates for the 2014 Presidents Day Boondoggle included Valentine’s Day, so many anglers had to convince wives, significant others, and girlfriends to allow them to head to the Crooked River Boondoggle in Georgia’s Golden Isles. Marian understands my enjoyment of fishing and she tries really hard to enjoy it, too. She really enjoys kayaking and birding, so after 3-4 hours of fishing Marian will just sit in the marsh to read and maybe see a new bird species.
The 2013 Kayak Angler’s Choice Awards are in the books. This year we decided to implement a new elimination format that really helped to prevent voter dilution and kept things exciting. Participation was almost double 2012; over 9700 unique votes were cast during the three rounds of voting.
After two rounds of voting, the top nominations for Kayak of the Year, Kayak Fishing Forum of the Year, Paddle of the Year, Kayak Angler of the Year, and more have been selected by the community. 2,754
The Columbus Day 2013 Boondoggle™ took place at Big Lagoon State Park near Perdido Key, FL. This was the first time that an event of this size locked down a state park where 350 plus kayak anglers were the only residents for three days. Also impressive was the level of organization KFR and YakAngler with an agenda of workshops on paddling strokes, tactical approach to fishing, fishing beyond the breakers, fly fishing, a video clinic, kayak safety, and proper catch and release techniques.
