They fish for any critter that will tighten a line and it doesn't matter if it is with conventional gear, fly gear or bowfishing gear. He and his son are on the Jackson kayak fishing team and the whole family helps with an awesome group called Paddle4Tomorrow that gets people with special needs out for a day of paddling.

My Reviews

Jackson Kayak "Mayfly"
 
4.6
"I just spent 4 days in the new Jackson Kayak “Mayfly.” The first thing I noticed about the Mayfly is the extremely low side profile. This really helped in the wind and keeps the kayak from getting blown about. It will make for extremely easy deep water reentry as well (I will test that on purpose when the water warms up). The very next thing I noticed is the open deck. I mean this is a beautiful, flat, wide open..."
Vapur "Break-Up Infinity Bottle"
 
5.0
"When I received the Vapur Anti-Bottle, I had to fight my wife and son for it. We regularly carry water bottles on our adventures and the .7 liter (23oz) size is just about perfect for our needs. My first adventure with it was in the deer woods and I really liked the fact that it could lay flat or stand up and not roll around. It packed well in my backpack and when I carried it in my vest it..."
Jackson Kayak "Kilroy DT"
 
4.4
"I have only had my Jackson Kayak “Kilroy DT” for a couple weeks but I have put it through some serious torture testing during that short time. From rivers and lakes in Tennessee to the Okefenokee Swamp and Suwannee River in South Georgia, I spent 8 full days kicking her tires. As far as cons go, it is a heavy boat, about as heavy as a Jackson “Big Tuna.” I was able to trailer top and load on my Tacoma’s..."
Lower Keys Kayak Fishing
 
5.0
"I spent several days paddling with Randy on a trip with my family and have to say it was a pleasure the entire time. we fought rough conditions and he found the best places and tracks to make sure we had the easiest paddle for my wife who was new to a sit on top kayak at the time. he spent a ton of time with my son working on his casting, stalking and paddling and those lessons are still..."
Outside World Outfitters
 
4.7
"I have been a customer of the Outside World Columbus Georgia location since just after they opened the doors. I went in looking for a kayak and quickly saw what a value a local shop is. They didn't want to sell just any kayak, they wanted to sell the RIGHT kayak for me. Their knowledge and help kept me from making an expensive mistake and they do that for each and every customer. They have demo boats so you can..."
Astral "Brewes" Shoes
 
5.0
"I do a lot of wet wading and dragging my kayaks over rocks in our river. I need a super sticky shoe to prevent slipping on the slimy rocks and allow me to pull the heavy load upriver with me. You can go to Astral's website and read all about their sticky rubber compound. I don't know how it works, I just know it does ! These shoes are quick drying and comfortable so that is a big time plus..."
