Amanda Berrent is one of our staff experts from the Houston store that started off as a frequent customer trying to fuel her kayak angling hobby. Her focus is on salt water fishing and she was actually featured on the cover of Texas Salt Water Fishing back in January of 2012 (see it here).
A new app for iPhone (sorry Android users, no luck for now) from Fish Rules LLC is bringing saltwater fishing regulation information from North Carolina to Texas including fish identification tools, hot spots and much more. Developed with the hope to help anglers interpret complex fishing regulations that can change from place to place, the Fish Rules App gives an always up to date view of the regulations that apply to the area you’re in.
You may have noticed our blog post last month welcoming Diablo Paddlesports to the ACK family of brands. We are particularly excited about bringing them on board due to their uniqueness, functionality as an excellent fishing platform and the simple fact that they are manufactured right here in Austin, Texas, making it easy for us to access inventory and replacement parts.

Every once in a while a brand emerges from a sea of products, one which develops what you might consider a cult following — YETI is one of them. Sure, they’re just coolers but the moment you set your eyes on them you can tell something is different and even more so once you begin using one.
I was trying to figure how I was going to get all of my gear into one of my sit on top kayaks. Most of the paddlers on this trip were taking canoes but I still preferred to use a kayak. Then it occurred to me that the best option would be a hybrid such as a Native Watercraft Ultimate 14 or a Wilderness Systems Commander 140. Because of their wide-open cockpit design, either would easily accommodate all of my gear while still providing an experience closer to my personal preferences.
