Amen brother. I believe that the way to success and enjoyment in any facet is to start with the basics, grow your skill and then once you have found confidence in yourself and your tools, expand on it. Rinse and repeat. With that being said, I hope to have a SS127 tied to the roof of my jeep come this fall. Thank you for you honesty and advice. Keep on being Knot right.

Hello Chad and greetings from Ireland. First of all I'd like to commend u on a very informative channel for all your fellow bass anglers stateside. Good on you...well done! I have a query with u regarding the ATAK 140. I am foremost a flyangler + the odd bit of lure and when I eventually purchase a kayak I plan to use it for both freshwater lakes and the salt. So at the moment my choice of kayak is the atak 140. But recently I read several bad reviews on them regarding the amount of water entering the hull which I found very surprising. Several of the paddlers regretted buying the boat and maintained the main culprit was the stern hatch. Consequently it was given the thumbs down as an offshore boat. They also stated that the os pod also took in water which totally defeats the purpose which it was designed for. I was deflated to read these cons as it seems an ideal flyfishing vessel with the open deck and all. You wouldn't expect to see such negative comments in connection with a company as reputable as WS. I personally don't see how the rear hatch could let in any water never mind enough that could possibly sink a boat. I would be very interested to hear your take on these reviews. Could you also let me know if wilderness have any plans to drain the tool area to the hull. This is a very valid crib to be fair. Thanks for all the tips / info and keep up the great work. Hoping to hear back from u. Tight lines, Brian

Chad, you mentioned that you don't feel like kayak fishing has a true pro tour but they are close...how far off do you think it is and what kind of things need to happen before that becomes a reality? Love the videos!

it always blows my mind how many people get butthurt by sponsored content....dude that's the reason that most of these people are able to do what they do...and if they don't promote the companies and gear that are supporting them the sport will not grow. sorry for the random tangent, great stuff Chad keep the content coming!

It's true, my first yak was 150 bucks from Menards and I caught tons and tons of fish. Still have that yak and I still use for spots that are difficult to launch the 13 foot yak I use now,. If you have a Menards and want to get into Kayak fishing the Viper is a good starting spot.

Man, love your outlook on this sport. I'm an amateur angler looking to someday get into a basic kayak and get on the water. Guys like me need that encouragement to just do the best you can and enjoy it. I'll be fishing from the bank for now but still, great content. With my newborn daughter, I don't get many opportunities to fish, but I love every second.

One thing I would recommend is to get a kayak with a nice comfortable seat if you can afford it. The first one I had only had one of those pads for a seat and I sold it the first summer because I couldnt stand being in it for very long. Killed my back. And if you cant afford a new kayak like that you can find very nice used ones on craigslist and save some money.

#Unicorn,

Chad I have learned by competing against most of the top anglers in the #KayakFishing #NKBFationalChampionship, #KBFTrail and #KBFOpenSeries that if you can give yourself any type of advantage it's worth it. As you mentioned if you can get out in a #Yak and be safe doing it it worth the #TOW.
