Hunter Amidon is one of our youngest KATS Anglers, but also one of our most enthusiastic! Not only did he finish in the top 5 at our last event on Lake Travis, he also qualified for the National Student Angler Federation tournament in Florence, Alabama. We caught up with Hunter to see how he is preparing for the tournament and ask how KATS has helped him in his fishing career.
Bass fishing in the summer can be one of the hardest times of the year to catch fish. The conditions are mostly bluebird skies, light wind, and high heat, which means that the fish are going to be found deep, or in the shade trying to escape the heat in cooler water.
If you’re a frequent reader of our blog, you may have noticed we recently decided to launch a monthly blog series that digs into the numbers to answer the question “What are people buying?” Here are the top 5 kayaks we sold in May.

As the weather starts heating up and sweaty, sunny days out on the water await us, have you got your fishing wardrobe ready? The best thing you can do for your comfort and skin protection when you’re out kayak or SUP fishing in the sun is to opt for a long-sleeve shirt made out of light, breathable material.
We’re guessing a lot of older dads out there grew up fishing but may not have ventured into the kayak fishing world over the years for whatever reason. Maybe they’re nervous about leaving the shore and the stability of a yak, maybe they’re not interested in the physical act of paddling, or perhaps they just haven’t had the opportunity.
Spring has sprung, and our KATS season is moving along full steam! As of now, we only have one regular season event left to fish before the championship this fall. We will be out on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas on June 10th. The championship will include the top 25 anglers from the regular season and put them to the test over a two-day tournament.
