Happy New Year!
Typically I am always asked what are my goals for the new year. I always answer well same as last year. To enjoy the sport of kayak fishing to put food on the table and learn some new tricks to angling and to help fellow kayak anglers new to the sport and seasoned. Also representing Jackson Kayak with the up most respect. I also love checking out and testing new products aimed at the sport.
2013 was a pretty successful year. Fishing 2 tournaments and 2 Jamborees along with trying to hit the water as much as possible. I should have counted the days I got out fishing. The plan is to start recording them in 2014.
Firsts for the year included new species to my list. Teaching kayak fishing seminars to over 50 people at a time. The success of a great second Heroes On The Water season. Learning new tricks with video editing.
Things missed this year were team Kipto and the boondoggle. The weather forced us to cancel the last fishing trip of the year at Kiptopeke. The Yakman wasn’t around the scene as much. Was able to fish with Lunchbox more than last year which is always a good time.
This year looking forward to dirty J-Bay. Hoping to maybe place in the tourney. Prior years i just looked at J-Bay as a fishing tourney that is more chill. This year im going there to fish. This year should open some doors and can only get bigger. Im looking forward to seeing you out on the water or volunteering for HOW.
Good Luck in 2014!!
