I was sitting in Kentucky Lake’s Ginger Bay eating a banana when I learned I was not supposed to eat a banana in a boat. I was also catching bass on topwater during a snowstorm on the same trip… so I’m not sure I really believe in that superstition, or any for that matter. Since […]
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.

“Hosted by Kissimmee Sports and Experience Kissimmee, the 2020 KBF Dee Zee The TEN pitted KBF’s top 11-12 anglers of 2019 in a two-day fish-off on the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes in Florida.

I was standing in the garage looking at the brand new Hobie PA14 with the 360 Mirage drive and thinking about how far we have come from the “original” kayaks. It is one of the most stable and maneuverable kayaks on the market. It offers an incredible amount of deck space, high gunnels, a large […]
Featured Image Credit: Chad Hoover When I first started fishing kayak bass tournaments seriously, I heard the names of anglers who others liked and respected. I wanted to know the anglers at the top. As more time passed, I was fortunate to meet all of them. I made friends on and off the water with […]
There were 125 anglers who braved the waters to begin the 2020 season at the Hobie Bass Open Series tournament held Jan. 31 through Feb. 2 in Bainbridge, Georgia. AJ Mcwhorter and Kevin Nakada welcomed the largest crowd in the history of the series to Lake Seminole, and it proved to be quite the challenge […]
“HOLY CRAP!”. The Onalaska Omni Center in La Crosse, Wisconsin filled with Dylan Fuqua’s reaction to Chad Hoover announcing him as the seventh member of the Ten. The crowd in the room, assembled for the KBF Championships on the Mississippi River, cheered for the youngest angler ever to make it to the Ten as he […]
Today, you can find inexpensive kayaks for sale about everywhere you go. It seems that I woke up one day, and they were in all sporting goods stores, hardware stores, and even tractor supply stores. I keep waiting to see them at grocery stores or pharmacies that are not owned by the Walton family. They […]
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 […]

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 […]
