For those of you who don’t read my website often, I like to visit the Devils River at least once per year. It is a pristine, spring-fed river located in southwest Texas between Sonora and Del Rio. With clear, spring-fed water, Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, and amazing scenery, the Devils River has quite a bit to offer. For this trip, me and my dad had quite an offering of fish too.Read More

Before I ever got a kayak, paddleboard, or even a baitcasting reel I fished the San Saba River. I had fished other rivers, creeks, and ponds before the San Saba, but the San Saba River was one of the first “wild” rivers that started my path to where I am today. On this trip, I had an opportunity to return to the San Saba River and try to catch some Largemouth Bass.Read More
One of my favorite rivers to fish is the Llano River. I have paddled and fished several different sections, with my primary destination being the South Llano River near Junction, Texas. For this trip, I decided to try out a new location where the James River and Llano River become one.Read More
There are many different rivers in the state of Texas that I enjoy fishing, but one river has consistently set itself apart from the others – the Devils River. There are some aspects that I really like when fishing a river. I like clean and clear water. I like hills and cliffs around me. I like vegetation in the water...but no too much. I like rock bottom rivers. Lastly, I like rivers that can produce a lot of fish. The Devils River encompasses all of these aspects as it is spring fed and therefor very clear, has lots of large cliffs and hills surrounding the water, and there is an abundant amount of fish to catch. Although I have gone to the Devils River quite a few times, what made this trip unique was what I used to travel across the water – my Pau Hana Endurance.Read More

After a long semester of hard core engineering and math classes at college, I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate than to go fishing.

The month of May 2015 was a rough one for the state of Texas, and much of the southwest. With multiple rivers flooding, severe weather, and a truly unpredictable weather pattern, doing any fishing was very difficult.
Although I didn't catch any big ones, this trip to the Brazos River near Lake Possum Kingdom was a long awaited one. I do not know how many weekends I waited for an opening to go do some fishing. Luckily, I was able to take out my Jackson Kayak Big Tuna and catch a few fish.
I didn't expect to catch much considering Texas had just recieved some severe ice storms, nonetheless I hooked into an above average fish.Read More
Sometimes during fishing we try to get a little too sophisticated with our tactics. This is why I find this article so amusing. Not until a year or so ago did I seriously start to understand the tactics of fishing for bass. I used to just put on a favorite lure no matter the circumstances and expect to have a few bites. However nice this might seem, this is not the case, as fish can be quite finicky due to their surroundings.
