March in Minnesota

March From the perspective of a kayak fisherman in Minnesota, the month of March can be a little disheartening. The ice fishing season for gamefish has just ended (walleye, pike, bass, etc.) The only local ice fishing to be done now is pan-fish or rough fish. Ice-out on local lakes is usually the middle of April to the first part of May. Hang in there…

Mention world class fishing to a dedicated trout angler, and the conversation will soon turn to exotic or far away places: West Yellowstone and Missoula, MT; Glenwood Springs, CO; Grayling, MI; Creelsboro, KY; Bend, OR. Wait a minute - did he just say Creelsboro, KY? Why yes, yes I did.

Big Lagoon Boondoggle

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.

Keeping an open mind

Many of my close friends and fishing buddies know me for my many “life lesson” slogans that I’ve picked up from some of the most inspirational people throughout my life. As I sit in front of my keyboard and reflect on the past weekend of fishing, one slogan comes to me: "Keep an open mind."

Fishing, A Day With The Guys

In the mad rush, a few very important items had been forgotten, as usual. My Heroes on the Water hat and Strike King sunglasses were on the kitchen table as I stepped out into the chilled night air. Not even four hours ago the girlfriend had left the house, giving me permission for the adventure I was about to embark on: to drive all the way to Pointe a la Hatche, LA and fish the marsh. My good friends Casey Brunning and Jason Austin were fishing the BCKFC’s Redfish Rumble tournament, while I was there to learn, watch, and fish for fun.

Trout Slaying at Paddlepalooza

The night before was mostly a blur as I heard my bunkmates awakening around me. The confines of our quarters at Bobby Lynn’s Marina was a symphony of guys putting on clothes, discussing launch locales, and even a brewskie being cracked so early in the morning. It was the day we had waited for so long: Paddlepalooza X, and the members of the LSU Kayak Fishing Club were getting prepared to make a great showing. However, one person in that room couldn’t creak open his eyes for all the caffeine at the Coke bottling plant.

The Big Year

A few years ago, there was a movie called The Big Year about crazy bird watchers chasing as many species as they could. I wish I could say they got the idea from me, because I have had my big year planned for a while. The major difference was my big year wasn’t about chasing birds; it was all about chasing fish.

Goin’ Home, I’m Goin’ Home

In dire need of some rest and relaxation, I loaded up the truck this past weekend and hit the road for Pennsylvania. The drive is not short, but the worst part was paying the $12 Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel toll and driving past the striper fleet anchored up under the High Rise. I glanced over toward the famed concrete ships, knowing that at least a few kayakers were down in the blackness, dunking eels for the Kipto Kows. I’d hoped to join them this year, but it wasn’t to be.On the plus side, I didn’t need to buy a heavy outfit.
