I started Kayak fishing in the spring of 2017.
I was never really a "fisherman" before that. I fished rivers and creeks, catching trout and small mouth bass, once or twice a year at our family cabin in PA.
My brother was an avid fisherman. He loved everything about it. Fresh water, salt water, any species of fish. He just loved fishing. He had bought a used Jackson Coosa in 2015. He really got into kayak fishing, some tournaments but mostly fishing recreationally.
In April of 2016 he passed away suddenly. His wife after a year of mourning asked me if I wanted his kayak. I was honored that she wanted me to have it.
I took it out in that spring of 2017 caught my first large mouth bass and was I was hooked.
I am so lucky that I am a part of the this amazing community of plastic boat anglers. I have discovered a true passion for fishing and I get to honor my brother everytime I go on the water.
I am a member of the Delaware Paddlesports fishing team. Delaware Paddlesports is an amazing shop in Delaware with a very knowledgeable staff. They are a top retailer for Hobie in the Mid-Atlantic region and I am proud to represent them.
