A recap blog of 2018

Wow. I didn’t blog at all in 2018. I guess the times are changing. It’s odd because I miss writing, but I often find myself struggling to muster the energy and focus that it takes to put together a well-written blog or article. Clearly, I am not alone, as many blogs (and magazines) are trending …

Five Ice Out Techniques to Land Big Bass

People complain too much about winter. I might at times, but it is a great time to catch up on projects, like a full renovation of a new (to us) fixer upper house or baby proofing for a 9.5 month old who is on the move. However, I am more than happy to see winter …

My Almost 100-Mile Adirondack Adventure

Back in February, I got a text from my friend and editor/writer Ben Duchesney (formerly of Kayak Angler Magazine) inviting me on a canoe trip in the Adirondacks.

Kayak Angler’s Choice Awards 2016

The annual Yakangler.com Kayak Angler’s Choice Awards have arrived. Actually, they arrived a month or so ago. The first round of nominations ended, and the top nominations can now be voted on in round 2. Admittedly, I didn’t participate in round 1. I’ve gotten tired of seeing this become a popularity contest. People with 10 …

Finally, picture #10 gets to be posted. This fish was special for a number of reasons, but mainly because I got to share the memory with a best friend who I don’t get to fish with very often these days. Travis and I grew up together in central PA. After meeting in Spanish class, we …
