When it comes to winter kayak fishing, some kayakers in the north are forced to leave their kayaks at home to fish hard water. Some move to hunting during the winter months, or have other pursuits to fill the winter days. But there are still many of us who fish year-round from our kayaks — for […]
About Mike Cheatham
May 2016, sat in my first kayak.
October 2016, skunked in my first tournament.
Spring of 2017, placed 11th in the KBF Open and have chased the addiction since.
Fishing is the one place my mind gets quiet, the place I have always found peace. To do it competitively with a great bunch of folks is just a bonus. To have an opportunity to combine my love for fishing with writing...I feel like I have finally found a place in this world!
I do have the support of a wonderful woman who understands my need to be on the water; she supports my dreams fully....life is truly good.

Tennessee is home to ten clubs that fall under the umbrella of a larger organization, Kayak Anglers Society of Tennessee (KAST). All clubs are required to follow the same KAST rules and regulations to insure a consistent point system across the state. Each year, KAST chooses a location from the home waters of one of […]
The first year I fished competitively, my idea of prepping for a tournament was to make sure I knew where the check-ins were. I verified that I had all of my equipment, some food and water. I looked at a map or two, planned launch and load times to make sure I wasn’t late. Fishing […]
I was asked to put together an article on “selecting on-the-water kayak fishing partners.” To be honest, I have been struggling. Not because I am unaware of what I like in people or because I have no kayaking buddies, but because I have not found a single friend since deciding to kayak — I found […]
First and foremost, I was extremely blessed to represent the Hobie brand for my 2019 kayak fishing season. It was my first year as a member of their fishing team. Joining the team was more than a goal I set for myself last year — it was an aching desire to stand in a crowd […]
Not sure how everyone puts together their kayak tournament schedule. But with hundreds of local clubs, KBF, the Hobie BOS and now B.A.S.S. entering the arena, there are opportunities to fish on some body of water every weekend. So it’s getting harder to choose between them all. I have been doing this a few years, […]
Kayak Bass Fishing Tennessee during the transition from summer to fall signals not only flannel shirt weather around my house, but it is also my favorite time to fish the creeks along the Cumberland River in Montgomery and Stewart Counties. There are three creeks where you might find me when the days get shorter, water […]
My wife loves Christmas with all the decorations; the tree with gifts, stockings filled with candy and more gifts, lights and snowmen all around the house. Each year we say that we are not going to buy each other anything, she even promises to not buy me anything for Christmas – then I get Festivus […]
I was asked a simple question: “How do you feel about the new HUK Bassmaster B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series presented by Abu Garcia and powered by TourneyX?” To answer, I had to take some time to work through the purely nostalgic reasons I am looking forward to attending and competing in a B.A.S.S. event. My […]
How many of you have seen guys walking around at tournaments with an ANGLR Bullseye on their hats and wondered why? I mean is it just a cool marketing tool – a way to get your brand out in public? Just another gadget to catch an angler, not to help catch fish? Well, I have […]
