  • Why do I kayak fish?

    Wednesday, November 4, 2015

    By Rex DeGuzman (aka Rex Del Rey) Why Do I Kayak Fish? About three years ago, I bought a GoPro and a kayak. My life has been a whirlwind ever since. Kayak fishing literally has changed my life.

  • Loreto kayakers connect with Baja bounty

    Monday, November 2, 2015

    By Chris Holmes Tall peaks filtered the sunrise above the rocky shoreline, the sea glass calm and clear as springwater as two pangas, laden with kayaks and fishermen, landed on a white sand beach on Isla del Carmen in the Sea of Cortez. The small cove is carved into the mountainous desert island, and provided […]

    Saturday, October 24, 2015

    By Paul Lebowitz The Mirage Adventure Island shivered with delight as she took her first sip of La Jolla salt. I pulled the big Hobie—a hybrid craft featuring two outriggers, a mirage drive and a sail—out to waist deep water, stepped over the starboard aka, and hopped aboard.

    By Jerry McBride My soft-plastic frog landed among the tall grass on the edge of the bayou, within a few inches of where a small bass had just blown on minnows hiding in the vegetation. A single twitch, and I felt the strike. Textbook bass fishing. I set the hook, and my catch came flying […]

  • Bowfishing from the Kayak

    Friday, October 16, 2015

    By Chris Funk There was love in the air in the Chattahoochee valley with the rough fish on a wild spawning spree. The three of us met in the gray light, Rob Kyle, my 17-year old son Ethan and I. This was no ordinary kayak fishing trip. Instead of rods, reels and lures we held […]
