Spencer Jones

Although starting to kayak fish in the summer of 2012 Spencer has fished since he was a kid.  He fishes everything from small creeks to large lakes mainly targeting large and smallmouth bass, northerns, and anything he can convince to bite the hook.  When he is not on the water he teaches choir at a middle and high school and teaches private piano lessons, and composes music. Spencer also loves working out and helping folks get healthy and fit!  He lives in Neenah with his lovely wife, 2 dogs, and 4 cats.

Should Kayak Anglers Try Yoga?

For many YakAnglers, combining yoga and paddling doesn’t cross their mind.  Sure, we’ve all heard about yoga classes on paddle boards as the latest trend but we don’t see much need for it with kayak fishing.  Why is that?

Jonesin for Lake Erie

YakAngler is excited to share a brand new series called “Jonesin’ for Lake Erie” brought to you by our very own Spencer Jones. This is part of a series that takes you on his adventures, traveling to fish and film amazing fisheries.

What’s the purpose of the series? To bring you along on his travels and show off the waterways of the world, getting you ready to plan your next adventure! Let’s dive in to the first two of three episodes! The first two episodes were filmed at Lake Erie and the third one is on Lake St. Clair. Spencer had to move locations due to weather.

 

Join Spencer Jones on the last day of the Lake Erie adventure. Sadly the weather doesn't cooperate for a day on the big lake so Richard Ofner and Spencer check out another amazing fishery that is great for kayak anglers, Lake St. Clair.

PFDs - Finding the Right Fit

“Don’t just bring your life jacket, wear it!” You have heard that saying so many times that I bet it doesn’t mean much. Every time you’re out fishing in the kayak you have your PFD with you - but are you wearing it? The only way you are going to wear it continuously is if it’s comfortable. Let’s take a closer look at the different styles, so you can find the one that best suits you.

NRS Crux Drysuit Review

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 was freezing but the air was warm.  It has a 4 layers of what they call eclipse fabric.  The wrists and neck openings had latex gaskets that stayed fairly comfortable.  Along the wrists, feet, and waist was a velcro strip area where you could tighten up the openings to insure water would not leak in if you accidently took a spill.  Although, I have not tried this aspect of it, the waist velcro area could easily be used for a spray skirt.  The main zipper was tough to pull, but they warn you about this.  It is harder to pull than a normal zipper because it creates the waterproof seam.
