Cliff from ACK Houston shares his personal perspective after replacing his milk crate with a Watertrail Fishing Buddy and using it for the past 6 months. I purchased the Watertrail Fishing Buddy w/ Rod Holders because it gave me a lot more features than the conventional milk crate that I had previously used.
Written by Spring Store Associate Kelsey Knowlden Emergency preparedness is an important aspect of outdoor adventures that often is overlooked or forgotten. What many people don’t realize is that it doesn’t usually take much.
After finishing up at the Houston Boat Show this past Sunday, it was time to go have a little fun on the water. I had been eyeing and slightly drooling over the new Old Town Predator 13 kayak that has been on display in our Houston store this past week.
The hybrid kayak/paddleboards from Diablo Paddlesports have been making a big splash here at ACK and especially among our local kayak fishing customers who like to fish calm fresh water & saltwater flats. That’s why we were very excited when we picked up Sawyer’s new 3-in-1 Versa paddle, which functions as a kayak paddle, SUP paddle & push pole.
I had never sailed anything yet but it has been something I have yearned to do. So, for my birthday I decided to take out the Hobie Adventure Island and fulfill this lifelong goal.
Several nights ago, Brock, ACK Assistant Store Manager, and I were invited to PACK’s annual gathering at Saint Arnold’s Brewery. PACK (Paddling Anglers in Canoes and Kayaks) is a large organization here in Houston that consists of paddling enthusiasts and also sponsors events and trips.
The other day I took an opportunity to “go play” at Huntsville State Park with a couple of my good friends. The weather was typical of a winter day in east Texas, a bit cool with some precipitation.
I had the pleasure of testing out the Hobie Mirage Tandem Island (TI) during the ACK demo days back in September. While I was testing the TI out on the lake, I could not help but compare it to the Hobie Mirage Adventure Island (AI) which I had paddled/sailed before.
