These 5 tips, or what I call “lessons I learned the hard way”, are geared toward the newer kayak tournament anglers. I think it is important that you take a few minutes to understand not only what you are getting into, but to know about a couple of tiny little errors that we see happen […]
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.

Podcasts and webcasts have become so integrated into our daily routine that it would be hard to revert to a time before they existed. It is possible to listen to them live or catch up at a later date; on your drive in to work or on the water. These outlets can provide content, good […]
Now, everyone knows that fishing can be unpredictable and the chances of winning every event you enter is not high. If it were that easy, there would most likely not be as many tournaments because the outcome would be predetermined based on one or two anglers always being the top performers. But there has been […]
What do you need to go fishing? Just fishing? Well, that can be so different depending on where you are from, and the environment in which you now live. I cannot tell you what you might need at the North Pole, nor can I give advice on the middle of the ocean; these would be […]
I first met Tim Perkins at the 2017 National Championship/Open in the early morning hours as we waited to find out who had won some money. I had known about KBF for less than two months, had signed up for the Open (my fourth tournament ever) because I always wanted to fish a big tournament, […]
Many of us are living in areas that require us to limit how much time we spend in public. All of us are in a world that is unfamiliar; a world that requires “social distancing” to fight the spread of a virus, to protect not only us, but those whose paths we may cross – […]
There is something new happening in the kayak fishing community. With tournaments brought to almost a complete standstill, people are finding more and more ways to remain competitive and in the public’s eye. For the past couple of weeks, Scott Beutjer Fishing has hosted the FishUSA 5 live shootout presented by Cashion Fishing Rods. Five anglers are chosen […]
Where is tournament kayak bass fishing headed over the next five years? If I had a crystal ball to predict that, I would use it for the lottery… and then I could predict the fact that I would be fishing every day ‘cause I would have lots of money! But, I have no money, no […]
Clear Creek. It wasn’t the only place that anglers found fish, but many who cashed a check in the inaugural Huk Bassmaster B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series powered by TourneyX presented by Abu Garcia had launched somewhere along its banks. Pell City, Alabama was the host city for the event which saw over 200 kayakers launch […]
If you were to graph the growth of kayak fishing over the last ten years, it would follow the path of an exponential function; slowly increasing, the turning upward swiftly. I used to fish Yellow Creek in my old beat up Jon boat and never see a single kayak. You would occasionally see a canoe […]
