Hardcore Swimbait Stripers, Part II

My father and I paddled a peaceful Alabama creek this past summer, and I captured some of the most exciting swimbait fishing I have ever experienced. I knew this trip would be special when my 6” Bull Shad got hammered on the very first cast.

People often ask me why I’m so passionate about throwing big baits and why I am willing to spend so much money on expensive swimbaits, big reels, dedicated rods, and heavy-duty components. If this video doesn’t explain it, then nothing else will.

Evan Howard

Fishing is in Evan's blood; ingrained in his DNA like thread woven into fabric. He was taught to fish by his father and grandfather as an integral, life skill. His youth was spent exploring the banks of North Alabama’s ponds and rivers, searching for big bass and adventure; daydream of tournament wins and becoming a professional angler. However, he yearned to escape those banks to explore, go farther, and fish waters I could not reach. After he graduated college, kayak fishing, spearheaded by guys like Drew Gregory, exploded onto the angling scene and provided the means to escape the banks and ply the unreachable waters he longed for. Evan quickly fell in love with paddling and fishing all waters, but his true passion lies in exploring small, remote flows to unlock their guarded secrets; hard-fighting, river fish.
