Meet Small Craft Outfitters!

Over the few years that I’ve lived here in Midwestern WI, I’ve had the opportunity to meet fellow kayakers, anglers, and kayak anglers. Someone whom I’ve met not long ago is a fellow kayak angler named Tyler Thiede. He and I have both shared… Continue Reading “Meet Small Craft Outfitters!”

2016: An Odyssey To Remember

2016. My kayak and I moved into a small town, awaiting to explore what the many lakes and rivers will bring to us. I was new to Midwestern Wisconsin and was unfamiliar with the bodies of water in this area. However, I met many… Continue Reading “2016: An Odyssey To Remember”

FeelFree Lure Kayak Demo

Over this weekend, I had the chance to demo one of the best fishing kayaks in the market: a FeelFree Lure 11.5′ kayak. As a sit-in kayak angler, this was a rather new transition from one kayak to another. Sadly, compared to the sit-in… Continue Reading “FeelFree Lure Kayak Demo”

Feeling a burst of acceleration after seeing the monster surface and wrestle the water, I… Continue Reading “New Personal Best! 20.5″”

Bass fishing: Rivers vs Lakes

In rivers, where the body of water is constantly moving into a larger body of water (such as a lake or river), it is typically inhabited with smallmouth, who… Continue Reading “Bass fishing: Rivers vs Lakes”

Bat Caught On Lines: Rescued!

While floating down the Red Cedar River today in western WI, I noticed a bat tied up in some thick, fluorocarbon fishing line. As you may be aware of, fluorocarbon can really be a mess when tangled together (trust me, I’ve had a bird’s… Continue Reading “Bat Caught On Lines: Rescued!”
