Featured Image Credit: Scott Beutjer The growth in kayak bass fishing, due in part to the relatively inexpensive startup costs, doesn’t appear to be slowing. The boats are small and light; can be stored outside, in corners of garages or even in apartments. There are models to fit almost every personal preference and fit about […]
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.

Featured Image Credit: Eric Siddiqi The hard truth about kayak fishing is that wind can be an issue. Ok, that is an understatement; wind will be an issue and can ruin your day on the water if you end up on the wrong end of 30 mph gusts. Jump in a paddle kayak and head […]
Featured Image Credit: Scott Beutjer It is very easy to be intimidated standing at a counter filled with boat and kayak fish finders. All of the brands, sizes, features, buttons… the images rolling across the screens. If you are lucky, there will be a guy behind the counter who knows about them all and can […]
Featured Image Credit: Scott Beutjer The 2019 KBF season is winding down… we have seen the National Championship won by Mike Elsea on Caddo Lake, Cody Milton crowned at Bienville while a group of anglers piled up in Jeff Fader’s spot, and Clint Henderson win the first KBF/FLW event on Lake Ouachita in Hot Springs, […]
Featured Image Credit: Scott Beutjer Selecting a kayak paddle for me was a simple process; once I had some idea what I planned to be doing on the water. I knew I was not (still am not) adventurous enough to drop over falls in a kayak, so there is no way I can offer you […]
So, you are headed out fishing in your kayak. By now you have all the basics and are looking at all the stuff to carry on the water, stuff you think you will need. There is a simple question you need to ask yourself; where do you plan on fishing this weekend? I ask you […]
With a feeling that it was as much a gathering of old friends and family as a tournament including many of the top kayak anglers, the final event of the inaugural Hobie BOS season was held at Lake Guntersville on September 21st-22nd. Under the direction of AJ Mcwhorter and Kevin Nakada, with Frank Stapleton helping […]
The weather, though a bit warm, cooperated to allow kayakers to fish under blue skies with little wind in Alabama last weekend. Three Tennessee River lakes – Wheeler, Wilson, and Pickwick – were in play for the 2019 YakAttack KBF Southeast Regional in Florence, Alabama on September 6-7th for the 52 anglers enrolled. The city […]
This has by far been my least productive year since I started fishing kayak bass tournaments; if you only consider wins vs. well, not wins. And there is a voice inside my head that says this is all that matters, but I know that I have learned a lot; even in finishes below .500. So […]
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 […]
