The Evolution Of A Paddler

Posted by Mark Rine on Feb 16th 2019

The Evolution Of A Paddler
Paddle or Pedal? That is the question launched by the most avid of anglers, or at least a few I know. They wonder if picking up a paddle again after acclimating to the ease of pedals is even worth a thought. I assure them it is. Some say they would never dream of going back to paddle-style kayaks because of their reliance on the efficiency their pedal kayaks provide while navigating their most preferred types of waterways. On the flipside, I also have friends who consider themselves puris

300 lb? Sturgeon Caught From A Hobie Outback
What's up guys, I'm here are in the Pacific Northwest with some of my Hobie fishing team guys. We are fishing for dinosaurs, in the new 2019 Hobie Outback! I have one goal today and that's to break my personal best kayak fish. Once we got to where we were going, looked over at the Lowrance Hook 5 fishfinder, and at about 48 feet there were fish everywhere. So we knew we were in the right spot for some fish. About that time,I got one....oh that's a good one! He ended up breaking m

Zelda's Adventure In Key West Florida
It's late at night or really early in the morning, depending on who you ask. My wife Jenni, my daughter Zelda, my nephew Drew, and I are driving......which feels like forever! We have already past the Tennessee and Georgia state line and the Georgia and Florida state line. Everyone is sleeping and resting, and I am thinking about where we are going....the Florida Keys! The last time I was down here was about 2 years ago before Zelda was born. With a little bit of money in our pockets, my wi

Here We Go Round And Around...

Here We Go Round And Around...
There are several species of fish that an angler can chase from a kayak. Being an avid kayak tournament angler I focus primarily on bass, practicing CPR; catch photograph and release. It is a great feeling to win the battle against a giant bass and put her back, watching her swim away knowing she will produce many more bass. Once in a while, it is just as fun (and filling) to load the boat with crappie; and release them into the fryer.Now, I have fished for crappie for years…choosing artificial

Love Tennessee In The Winter

Love Tennessee In The Winter
The unseasonably warm December weekend (well, maybe not “unseasonably” – it is Tennessee) called me to go fishing. After fishing tournaments almost every weekend for a year, some might think a break would be in order...but then they would never understand the desire that drives us to compete...and fish, and fish, and fish...and fish...so, I unloaded my Hobie Pro Angler 14 at Yellow Creek along highway 149 and immediately saw that the water temp was in the mid 50’s. I have fished there fo
