Fished La Jolla last night. Beautiful conditions, a little bumpy from the wind, but my Tarpon 160 sliced through it easy enough! Water was 72 degress, green agua color near shore, then deep blue out deeper. Summer is here! Unfortunately, no bait fish in the water, but enjoyed the paddle as always!

Ok here is the full story. It was a beautiful morning this particular day. But it was turning into a day with very little action. I had paddled for most of the morning when I arrived at what looked to be a great fishing spot. I nestled up into a big group of old trees. I mean old and rotten trees. Everything was going well even managed to hook a big one. About 30 min. into this location a young man with his boat and dog as a fishing partner moved into the trees a good ways down from me. That… Continue

I want to head down to POC this weekend. Do you have anyone you recommend going out with?

What do you do when the coast seems to be blown out weekend after weekend and the temperatures are hovering near 100? Head inland to one of Texas's best kept (almost) secrets, the South Llano River at Junction, TX. That's just what a group of diehard PACK members did this past week. We didn't escape the 100 degree heat, but the low humidity and the cool, clear water of the river made for more pleasant conditions. Four of us hit the the river just north of Telegraph, TX on Friday morning and… Continue

I have an issue with the light poles available to kayak anglers for mounting 360 degree lights. They are too short to be seen above the paddler. And they usually need a Scotty mount or the likes to hold them. I use a crate with rod holders mounted to it. I wanted a light pole that would fit snugly into the rod holder and be high enough to be seen over my head.
I happen to have a piece of 3/4" pvc pipe that I started designing around. My first attempt just used the 3/4" pvc pipe but… Continue

Many folks new to kayak fishing ask me about what I take with me and how do I carry it all. It amazes them when they find out I carry 3 rod/reels, 5 tackle trays, drift anchor, manta anchor, stick anchor, fish lippers, drinking water, snacks, and a 360 degree light, as well as my wallet, camera, keys, extra smokes & lighter in a small dry bag. The best part is that most all of this stuff fits into my crate. When I get to the water, I unload my 160, put my crate in it, load my rods, PFD,… Continue

I am truly blessed to have wonderful children. Two great girls, who up until now shared little in common with dad. They show slight interest in my passion (or obsession) for fishing and college football....but I think that is so that I will take them to the mall to go shopping, as they know I love going into Bass Pro or the college sports gift shop.
However, we have found something to do on weekends when they are staying with me. And that is kayaking. Now, I am not much of a kayaker, I am… Continue

Took my new Tarpon 100 out in the Back Bay for some Bass fishing since the eco system has recovered very nicely over the past couple of years. Caught 4 early in the AM and 1 late PM with an old Jitterbug top floating lure.
Planning on going again tomorrow to see what I can stir up before heading to the beach with the family.

I arrived at my put in a few weeks ago looking forward to a good tide and hopefully a few fish on the end of my line. As I pulled up I noticed another fisherman getting set up for his days adventure. I quickly pulled my kayak out of the back of the truck, loaded my milk crate in the tankwell, stored my rods and then moved my truck out of the way so as not to block the small put in.
As I walked back the other kayak angler was still setting up. "Wow! That was quick." was his greeting… Continue

Hullavation Baby !
Got my Thule Hullavator a few weeks ago. Makes my life pure genius in terms of getting my seaworthy vessel ported !
All I gotta do is get the yak out of the water and to the Hullavator cradle. Not the easiests of tasks for a Shorty but do-able. Thank goodness for the very kind and sometimes cute guys standing around the ramps who will give me a hand !
Then the Hullavator takes it from there.… Continue

I used my Harmony Lasso Security Cables last night while the car with kayaks sat in the driveway. What a great product. I have the size for my wife's Tsunami 135 and my Tarpon Angler 140. It was very easy to set the code for the locks and they are extremely easy to use with the loop around the front and back of each kayak and the cable wrapped around the cartop crossbars. I have hte kayaks on the car at work and they are being used even as I write this. I was concerned about security if we… Continue
