Alright. You have picked up your kayak and decided it is time to make modifications to fit your personal style of fishing or travel. This is the point where we gain total creative control and can do whatever we want! Well, within reason; we can’t add an air conditioner for those hot summer days (you […]
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.

I have fond memories of the 2018 KBF National Championship. I was able to fish within 20-minutes of my house, on a body of water I know fairly well. Day one I had caught a good limit and was within striking distance to the leader; I had actually led most of the day. Day two, […]

Featured Image Credit: Scott Beutjer Fishing Most folks who look at us in our plastic boats don’t see it as a high tech industry. And to be very honest, a lot of those in kayaks are happy to be in them because of that; happy with the fact that they are just much simpler. If […]
Featured Image Credit: Scott Beutjer Fishing I feel confident saying that when I was half my current age of 56, I would have run down a ramp and walked into a kayak; pushing it offshore with one motion. I most certainly would run up to shore in my Hobie, like my friend Will Son, stand […]
My first kayak was only intended to be a boat to carry with our camper; allowing us to get out on the water on weekend getaways. I added a TracOne TracRac to my truck to make it possible to haul it and the camper without them hitting each other, then I would throw it in […]

Featured Image Credit: Scott Beutjer Fishing I have lost people I cared about who left home to enjoy some quiet fishing or boating thinking they would be back soon, so the first time I set my butt in a kayak, I was overly cautious. Not because I couldn’t swim (a lot who drown can) but […]
