Meet Big Names of Kayak Fishing at ACK Austin this Weekend I was scrolling through the list of representatives that we have coming to our ACK Austin store this weekend for Demo Days when I realized how many awesome people we have coming together for this event. If you’re a local Austin paddlers who is looking to further your kayak fishing knowledge and skills, you won’t want to miss this event.
Wilderness Systems pro-staffer Bobby Clark knows how to make kayak fishing look good! Check it out as he hits up a private Mississippi Bass lake for a little kayak fishing in his Commander 140 where he not only came out with plenty of fish but caught some great footage as well.
Not too long ago Wilderness Systems announced that they’d be testing out some new kayak colors and eventually choosing their favorite(s) to add to production for the long term. The colors included three different camo colors and are available with the Ride 115, Pungo 120 and the Tarpon 120.
Not only is the Kayak Angler Tournament Series (KATS) a great place to kick back and enjoy the outdoors, fishing and camaraderie but it’s also a great place to learn from the experts in their field. Wilderness Systems representative Blake Bartlett took some time off from promoting his products at the Lake Bastrop event last weekend to talk to us about the unique features of the Wilderness Systems Commander which make it ideal for the fisherman or someone looking for a canoe / kayak hybrid as well as the 2013 Wilderness Systems Ride 115 / 135 with the new, upgraded AirPro seat.
A few months back, I wrote a short piece that caused a bit of a stir. Apparently “storing your kayak for the winter” didn’t resound well with many, especially those residing in more temperate regions (tongue in cheek of course).
Lake Fayette is a favorite destination for anglers all over Texas (and sometimes the world) and is even one of the destinations picked out for ACK’s Kayak Angler Tournament Series. Well, I came across a video from Bobby Clark, a Wilderness Systems Pro Staff angler, fishing Fayette in his Wilderness Systems Ride 115 and I have to say that I was impressed.
Even though 2013 isn’t quite here yet, many of our kayak vendors have already started delivering new kayaks, some never before seen models and others with updated features. Some of the most notable launches are the new Native Watercraft Slayer, Feel Free Moken 12.
This Father’s Day my dad and I ended up having a bit of an unexpected adventure. We started with plans of my dad trying a stand up paddleboard for the first time but when I showed up the day of I found myself being talked into an overnight camping trip and a five hour paddle at Colorado Bend State Park here in Texas.
