Between August and October, I spent more time paddling at Sullivan Falls than anywhere else. What a treat, but it was extra special because I was able to share this incredible place with people I love to paddle with.

The Albion Open is the largest and oldest kayak fishing tournament on the West Coast. The Albion Open is held on the Northern Coast of California 14 miles south of the town of Mendocino at Albion River Camp Ground.

I recently participated in a local kayak tournament. It was on Old Hickory Lake in Nashville, TN. I had prefished and found some decent fish on a steep bank with some docks on it. We are allowed to get on the water and to a spot up to an hour before first cast. I ended
On this episode I am joined by Kayak Bass Fishing’s Chad Hoover, and we get to do a little “river bassin” on the beautiful Oconee River in Milledgeville, GA. The post spawn fish are scattered and the bite proves challenging, so they target anything that swims. This proves to be a fun way to turn
