So, a few months ago I was named to the Werner Paddles Fishing Team. Needless to say, I am still on cloud 9, and coupled with Hurricane Kayaks, I work for the two best companies in paddlesports, period.
Tourney Time - 6-1-13
A last minute decision was made to fish the Fanatic Kayak tournament out of Nags Head in the Outer Banks. The wind wasn't so lucky, but my first fish of the day was.

While looking for flounder, I hooked up with more rats. With time running short, I decided to troll my way in and hooked up to a 15-17" flounder. I would normally post a pic, but of course, my hatred of flounder was renewed, and he got off at the boat.
Only one 8" flounder was caught, and my mistake without a doubt cost me first in the flounder division. My first fish was good enough to snag me 2nd place Redfish in my first Saltwater event of the year.

April Specks and Reds
Not much to say here other than April was my best Spring fishing for specks ever, with over 40 ranging from 19-23.5" I was able to get on some awesome fishing with some great friends!
|A solid 23" - And again, notice the hat!|

Mad Man Luther Cifer's (Yak Attack) son Tyler also got a Graduation Present in the form of a 42" bull as well!
I will leave you with a shot I took at the Wild River Outfitters Demo Day a few weeks back. It was taken form our newest kayak, the Skimmer 116. This is an awesome boat I cant wait to spend some more time in!

Needless to say, I dont think I will leave home without my lucky hat anytime soon!
