Born and raised in East Tennessee, I have been fishing for most of my life. I got my first boat at age 17 and enjoyed fishing out of it for several years. That all changed in 2009. While on vacation, I went on a guided kayak tour. I had so much fun on that trip that I decided to buy a kayak when I got home and attempt to do some fishing from it. From the time I caught my first fish in the kayak, I was hooked. There just isn't a more fun way to catch them. The adrenaline rush you get when a big fish doubles your rod over and tries to take the side of your kayak with it is like no other. I ended up selling the boat a few years ago and haven't looked back. Now I spend my free time searching the Tennessee River for the biggest fish I can find from my kayak.  

My Kayak
I fish out of a 2015 Hobie Outback. I keep my setup pretty simple. There are two rod holders in the front and two in the back that can be adjusted depending on what technique I am using. It has anchor trolleys on each side. I keep a plastic crate behind my seat for gear and rod storage.
