Kick Fishing

<p>This tournament season started off quick, with 6 days of competition in a 9 day span.  Immediately following the @kayakbassfishing The Ten, I drove north to Lake Seminole, in Bainbridge Georgia to compete in the first @hobiefishing BOS event of the year.  I had five hours to prefish on Friday, and only caught one fish, but felt pretty good that there were a few more in that area.  It was a small backwater area off the main river.  The first day I caught a decent limit using senkos and flukes, but I was worried I had caught the majority of the fish in that area.  The second day was a bit tougher but I was able to catch another limit using an A-rig. At 11:00 I abandoned the area, launched at a new ramp and fished all unfamiliar water the rest of the day.  I only caught one more fish, but it was 19 inches, the largest of the day, which moved me up several spots.  When all said and done I finished 11th out of 175.  This was the largest field ever for a Hobie BOS event.  It is so awesome to see this kind of growth in the sport.  There are now 3 national kayak trails and it is great to see all 3 getting the numbers they need to be successful. #irodfishing #quantumfishing #dugoutbaitandtackle #wildyfishing #yakattack #bendingbranches #dakotalithium  (at Bainbridge, Georgia)<br/>

<p>Super excited to start off the season with a couple strong finishes at the @kayakbassfishing Trail Series events as well as the @deezeemfg Tenvitational, down in Kissimmee Florida.  There’s no better place to be this time of year.  The weather and fishing were both amazing.  Big congrats to my good buddy @joshjsharp for winning the Tenvitational, and @jodyqueenfishing for winning The Ten.  He is a hell of an angler, and someone I have an enormous amount of respect for.   Already can’t wait to make it out to next years event, one of my favorites for sure! #irodfishing #dakotalithium #dugoutbaitandtackle #torqeedofishing #tactacam #kayakbassfishing #quantumfishing #deezeemfg  (at Kissimmee, Florida)<br/>

<p>It’s great to be back home in Nashville TN.  My 2.5 month road trip has finally came to an end.  It was an experience of a lifetime and one I’ll never forget!  <br/>
The last chapter of my journey across the country was spent at Lake Dardanelle in Russellville Arkansas.  The Hobie BOS Series was in town and a group of friends and I rented a house for the week.  Prefishing went well and after the first day of competition I was leading the tournament by just a half inch.  Unfortunately the area I was fishing was pretty small and ultimately the area got too much pressure and I ran out of fish.  I still ended up with a solid 4th place finish and some much needed points for the “Angler of the Year” race. There’s only one Hobie tournament left, Coosa River on October 3rd & 4th, then the championship at Fort Loudon Lake in November.  I really want to thank AJ and the rest of the Hobie staff for putting on such well run tournaments.  They’ve got it down like a well oiled machine.<br/>
I’d also like to thank my sponsors #irodfishing and #dakotalithium for all of their support, they are both a big part in making this all possible for me. (at Nashville, Tennessee)<br/>

<p>First time exploring Utah! Camped out at Fish Lake with my mom and step dad.  Then my buddy Aaron drove out from Denver and we hiked around Capital Reef, and drove out to Green River for some more camping. (at Utah)<br/>

<p>It’s getting hard to find words to say at this point, all I know is this whole past year has felt absolutely surreal.  I definitely don’t take my recent success for granted, and I’m so very thankful for all the love and support from all my friends, family and sponsors.  This past weekend a number of friends drove up 3 hours from the Bay Area to camp out with me at Clear Lake.  The campground we stayed at up in Lakeport, was a place we used to have annual camping trips when I was in my teens and 20’s.  Being able to reminisce and share stories of all the crazy times we used to have out there was a special experience, one I’ll never forget. #irodfishing #dakotalithium #bassmasterkayakseries #clearlake  (at Lakeport, California)<br/>

<p>Well, I was on my way to Clear Lake and lost my power steering.  If I’m going to break down, this was definitely the place to do it.  Luckily I’ve got a friend with a garage near by.  This will be my second time replacing the steering rack and pump.  Hopefully it goes quicker this time around.  Should get her back on the road by the end of the day!  <br/>

<p>Had a little bit better day two and moved up to 10th place.  Next stop is the KBF Trail Series at Clear Lake.  I’ll be heading up that way first thing tomorrow morning.  Revisiting all of my old stomping grounds has sure been fun!  Really looking forward to these next couple of weeks!<br/>

<p>Rough first day at the Hobie BOS Series at the CA Delta.  Hopefully I can turn it around and get a solid limit tomorrow.  I was catching some giant limits during practice, but in typical Delta fashion, the big fish magically disappeared.  This place always seems to humble me.  #hobiebos #irodfishing #dakotalithium #tomorrowsanotherday  (at Bethel Island, California)<br/>

<p>Camping out on the Willamette River this past weekend will definitely be a memorable trip.  I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to travel around the country and reconnect with old friends.  Time sure does fly by.  Check out my buddy Gian Marco’s camping rig, pretty sweet!!!<br/>

<p>Made it out to Portland Oregon to visit a couple childhood friends.  Can’t believe it’s been close to a decade since I’ve gone fishing with my buddy Andy.  We explored the Columbia River Gorge and caught a ton of smallmouth!  Starting to finally figure out how to fish a spybait.  #irodfishing #dakotalithium #osprey #smallmouthbassfishing  (at Columbia River Gorge)<br/>

<p>Minnesota, the land of giant smallmouth bass, and giant swarms of mosquitoes!   Couldn’t ask for a better group of people to spend the week with.  Catching my personal best smallmouth twice in the last hour of the trip was an added bonus.  I didn’t have a scale with me as usual, lol, but I’m guessing they were both a hair under 6 lbs.  (last two selfie pics) 21 1/4” and as fat as a bass could be.  Next destination Montana!!! #irodfishing #dakotalithium #hobiefishing #nativekayaks #wildyfishing #torqeedofishing  (at Mille Lacs Lake)<br/>

<p>A little late on posting this, but I was able to catch another solid limit on the 2nd day of the Hobie BOS and walk away with the win!  This past year has been surreal, as I am truly living out my childhood dream.  I’m so grateful for the support from all my sponsors, and appreciate all the hard work from AJ and the rest of the Hobie staff.  This tournament was the start of a two month road trip for me.  The majority of the time I’ll be living out of my truck and traveling across the country.  Minnesota, Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California, then Utah, before I head back home to Tennessee.  #irodfishing #dakotalithium #hobiebos2020  (at La Crosse, Wisconsin)<br/>

<p>I had a great time on my guide trip with Terry yesterday.  His goal was to gain a bit of confidence with a few techniques that were new to him.  I’d definitely say the day was a success!  Flipping jigs around wood and lay downs was working the majority of the day, then we caught a few using buzzbaits in the willow grass.  #kickfishing #hobiefishing #tnfishingguide  (at Old Hickory Lake)<br/>

<p>I went straight from my tournament in Knoxville to a lake house that my friends rented near Rock Island State Park Sunday evening.

<p>Had an awesome time at the KBF Trail Series tournament on Fort Loudon Lake in Knoxville TN.  There was a new format with this tournament where there were two separate tournaments, one on Saturday and another on Sunday.  I though this was a cool idea because it gives anglers the opportunity to fish just one day or both depending on their schedule.  The first couple days I spent prefishing out on the main lake.  I was able to catch lots of fish, but nothing over 16”.  My last day of practice I launched at a ramp up river and found some bigger fish.  Most of the fish were caught flipping, but I caught my largest with a crankbait.  My iRod Gabe’s RipRap Special is the perfectly balanced for throwing those crankbaits that run from 3-8 feet.  I was fortunate enough to walk away with a 1st place finish the first day, and a 2nd place finish the second day.  Big congrats to Barry Davis for edging me out for the win on day two!  It was a close battle both days.<br/>

<p>Our local club KBFTN had their season opening tournament on Old Hickory Lake this past weekend.  My buddy Adam Riser and I battled it out for the top spot.  He  came out on top and took home the win out of 58 anglers.  If there’s any one I don’t mind loosing to, it would definitely be him.  He puts more time on the water than 99% of anglers I know, and his win was very well deserved.</p>

<p>It was an absolute beautiful weekend to be out on the water.  I wasn’t the only one to think that, because it was ridiculously crowded out there!  Good to see people getting out of the house and enjoying the outdoors.<br/>
All the regional tournaments that I travel to are still being postponed and rescheduled, but thankfully our local club is able to continue on with having tournaments in a safe manor where people don’t have to come in contact with each.  I really want to thank Ashley, Shane, Daniel, and Terry for their dedication to our club and all the hard work they put in to make these tournaments happen.  Look forward to our next one, a little over a week from now.  #hook1outfitters #irodfishing #dakotalithium #kbftn  (at Old Hickory Lake)<br/>

Our local club KBFTN had their season opening tournament on Old Hickory Lake this past weekend. My buddy Adam Riser and I battled it out for the top spot. He came out on top and took home the win out of 58 anglers. If there’s any one I don’t mind loosing to, it would definitely be him. He puts more time on the water than 99% of anglers I know, and his win was very well deserved.

<p>This should be a game changer for sure!  So glad I finally finished this project up.  I’m definitely not an expert electrician, but I’m grateful for the help of my buddy Adam Gorrell, who is.  This mobile power source will be used to charge all kinds of smaller batteries, run my laptop, an air compressor to inflate my kickboats, a coffee maker, and hopefully a mini fridge in the near future!  Now I won’t be limited to having to stay at campgrounds on my fishing adventures.  #dakotalithium #hook1outfitters #offthegridliving <br/>

<p>Had an unbelievable afternoon of fishing with my buddy Mike yesterday.  Our best 5 went over 27lbs.  Despite what people may think, Old Hickory Lake has some big ones lurking in the water.  #irodfishing #hook1outfitters  (at Old Hickory Lake)<br/>

<p>A little creek exploration with my buddy Chris and his son Levi.  Couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day!  The only thing that could have made the day better, was to land the one that got away.  I lost a smallmouth that was well over 5lbs, would have been one of my biggest ever. #irodfishing (at Mystery Creek)<br/>

<p>It sure feels good to get back out on the water again!  This past month I’ve been focused on working hard to catch up on projects around the house, working on my trucks, and finishing anything I had on my to do list.  Many of these things I’ve been putting off for months, or even years.  I’ve realized over the years that fishing is definitely more enjoyable when there aren’t a million things on your mind about what you should be getting done. Now it’s time to fish!!!  #irodfishing #hook1outfitters #dakotalithium  (at Cheatam Lake)<br/>

<p>I’m Extremely excited and honored to be a part of the Dakota Lithium Team!  These batteries are exceptional quality and built to last.  The smaller 10amp & 23amp will be running my fish finders, GoPros, lights, and any other accessories on my kayaks.  The two 100amp batteries will be used as a mobile power source for my truck.  I also have a couple fold out solar panels to charge batteries as I’m on the road camping out.  I’ll be sure to keep you guys posted as I make progress on installing the mobile power source.  Can’t wait to get this all finished up so that I can hit the road! #dakotalithium #offthegridliving (at Off the Grid)<br/>

<p>A few great gifts from @hook1kfg When exploring the outdoors you always risk the possibility of getting injured.  Being prepared with a medical kit on hand can make the difference between life or death in certain situations.   This NRS kit is definitely an upgrade from my old one, and it comes with a high quality dry bag as well.  If you’re in need of kayaking, fishing, or any other outdoor gear, please check out Hook 1 Outfitters.<br/>
