Jay Wallen

I live in Lawrenceburg, KY with my wife Casey and 2 dogs Hobie and Winnie. I've been fishing for over 30 years with over 12 years of kayak fishing. My fishing ventures have taken me from the Great Lakes, Florida, Texas and everywhere in between. When I'm not on the road fishing tournaments in the Hobie Bass Open Series I work as a coal geologist for the state of KY. Some of my fishing accomplishments include 3-Angler of the Year titles in multiple trails, 2-time Hobie World's Qualifier and a Hobie Bass Open win. I love our sport of kayak fishing and particularly enjoy helping introduce others to it, creating digital content and being involved in the grass roots level of our sport here in Kentucky.
