As an average guy, with an average job I decided that my life needed some adventure. I have always been outdoorsmen but have decided to take it up a notch by doing some different things. I love to fish and have been doing so for the last 15 years. I owe much of what I know about fishing to my late father in-law, Robert Hatter. He taught me patience, fish instinct and to always keep a positive outlook on the day no matter what the action. I took that spring board and jumped into the world of Kayak Tournament Fishing. Kayak fishing has allowed me to meet a bunch of great guys that are operating on the fringe of the angling world. Most of these guys know their fishing and it affords great opportunity to learn how to fish and micro manage a lake. When you’re not afforded the luxury of having an outboard 250, you kind of have to pick your spots and make the most of the opportunities in them.
I started kayak fishing 2 years ago with the average, big box retail, kayak. Through meeting people in this sport I have been to learn about various equipment and surround myself with the top tier of sponsors. I currently fish the Hobie Pro Angler 14. This boat is the top of the food chain in Kayak Bass Fishing. It not only affords me a stable platform, with great stability but also it looks cool on the water and it is totally hands free. I am going to save my overall review for a video piece at a later date. It’s my personality that when I decide to do something I go all in. I go way over the top and this is what has happened with my relationship with Mariner-Sails Dallas. You cannot find a more knowledgeable, friendly staff than the peeps at Mariner. The store is loaded with whatever you need and the cool thing is that they have it in stock so you don’t have to wait round on shipping. Mariner can put you in the right boat for you and outfit it with everything you will need to be angling within hours of picking it up from their store. Did I mention the service? Service was key for me due to having many questions. All I can say is that these people are the most patient folks I have found, so whether you’re an expert or a novice Mariner Sails is the place to go for whatever you need.
I know this is supposed to be about adventure, but you have to know the adventurer before you follow them on the journey. This site will contain info about a cool trip into Mexico, Fly Fishing around the Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas areas, Kayak Bass Fishing Tournament Trail, as well as any urban, DFW Adventure, that may find its way to my door. I hope you enjoy the reports and feel free to post your own fishing adventures, because besides going I also like to read other great adventure reports from around the globe.
…KEEP LIVING THE DREAM!
