ACK’s marketing team got a new summer intern, Peter, and he’s helping us out immensely. Here’s a look at his first project, poking fun at the various kayak anglers we’re sure you’ve run into in the kayak fishing community. No hard feelings, y’all. The question is, which one are you?
ACK customers won’t stop sharing their creative DIY projects with us, and we definitely don’t mind. Keep ’em coming, and we’ll keep featuring them on our blog! Recently, we had a couple submissions describing quick fixes to add stability to tippy canoes (or just calm fears about the possibility of tipping) using foam floats purchased from our online store.
New month, new gear! No more fear of missing out on the latest and greatest. Keeping up with our new tradition of a monthly product pick blog to help you keep up with our constantly updating site inventory, we asked the ACK merchandising team on what to spotlight for July.
Technically, any kayak can fulfill the role of a fishing kayak if you just bring a rod out with you. But there are kayaks specifically designed for fishing, and then there are subsets of fishing kayaks best designed for certain types of fishing.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we can’t overstate the importance of sun protection in the summer. The reality of the paddlesports world is that you’re adventuring where there’s little shade to shield you from the sun’s gaze and the unrelenting glare off of the water.
If you’ve thought ahead before your kayak purchase, you may have already purchased a roof rack, bed extender or trailer. But in the eager fog of ordering a kayak, you also may have forgotten. Either way, you’ve got so many options.
Before you get out on the water this weekend, be sure to check your local fishing report! Texas folks, we pulled the below information from the latest report from Texas Parks and Wildlife.
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.
