I still have that inner monologue but in the kayak fishing world, it’s not an angel and a devil. On my left shoulder is 2003 Chris. 03C has zero dollars to his name, a Continue Reading

When My DIY Cart Failed Me in the Boonies

I’ve been a big fan of the C-TUG kayak cart from Railblaza for several years. It’s rugged, works well, and I’ve put it through hell. I tried a DIY cart and about a dozen other carts before I settled on the C-TUG. It was the only one that I felt like it wouldn’t leave me stranded. Stranded seems like a Continue Reading

REVIEW: Bonafide SS127 Kayak

It’s not a secret that the Bonafide SS127 has been on the review wish list for me for almost a year now. Watching videos of people paddling the prototype made me even more curious because all of the ideas and dreams of Luther Cifers and his team were molded into a plastic prototype that received some pretty glowing feedback.

REVIEW: Yak Gear Fish Stik Measuring Board

When the Yak Gear Fish Stik hit the scene at ICAST 2017 in Orlando, two camps immediately formed. Some folks loved the product. Some folks did not.

Furniture, Free TVs, and the Value of Add Ons

I’m not sure what it’s like where you live, but in Central Texas, we have furniture store ads running all the time. Maybe Texans buy a lot of furniture or maybe the guys that own the furniture stores just have money to spend. Either way, I give them quite a bit of side eye when their commercial is on. It’s Continue Reading

Budget Talk: Let Them Buy Hobies

My beginnings weren’t glorious. I lived almost all of my formative years in a trailer house. I knew it was different from the other kids at school but I knew it was what we could do at the time. My parents worked multiple jobs to feed and clothe our family of six and my gratitude was lackluster. Watching my Dad Continue Reading

Hide and Watch : Lessons From My Grandfather

“Boy, just hide and watch.” It was a phrase my grandfather used on hundreds of occasions and was the typical answer to almost any question I’d ask. Whether fishing, hunting, welding, cleaning fish, or asking about the next play the football team would most likely run, it was always the same: hide and watch. For most of my adolescent years Continue Reading
