For quite a while now I have been reading about Jackson Kayak’s new Coosa Elite and how everyone likes it.
Unfortunately, no one that has one lives very close to me. A few days ago, I contacted Ocmulgee Tim who lives in Gray, Georgia and he was kind enough to drop off his Coosa at my house to give it a test ride and for me to evaluate. I currently have an Ocean Kayak Drifter and have river fished out of it for quite a few years. I am now 61 years old and weigh 250 lbs. (If you don’t eat, you’ll die!!!)
Anxious to try this new kayak out, my friend, Sandbar Martin and I went to a local 5 acre lake to try it out. While there, we also wet a line for the first time in 2011. Anthony in the first 5 minutes catches his personal best largemouth!! Check out the video to join us in our excitement of catching our first fish of the year, highlights from 2010 of another good friend of mine, Smiley and finally the evaluation of the Coosa from my perspective and how it will fare for “FatBoys”.
Join me and two of my good friends, TyGa10 & Rocky on the Flint River while we fish for shoal bass!
Rocky is a long time friend of Robert’s that he has known for many years. Rocky and Robert played baseball
together when they were growing up.
Have you ever thought to yourself…….. “I’m getting pretty good at this river fishing thing!”
I know a lot of you out there watching this video have probably had that thought but probably
won’t admit it. That’s OK ! Here’s something new you might consider trying!
No shoal bass were injured during the making of this film and were all released
healthy back into the river!
This is a video of me kayak fishing with two of my Riverbassin.com friends on one of our favorite rivers in Georgia. The weather was hot…hot…hot this day but the bass were tearing em up!!! All three of us caught around 60 fish together!! Wooooooooooo! I had just viewed a video the night before of Kevin VanDam demonstrating how he fishes the “swimming jig”. I had never fished this type of bait before but will now!!! It was a killer!
Persistence, you wanna know what persistence is? Well, just take a good look at this young riverbasser. We all call her Smiley! Her mom and dad and husband probably call her Rachael. Fairly new at riverbassin™ out of a kayak and for that matter fairly new to bass fishing too, Rachael has come to love riverbassin™ almost as much as her better half, Jason (Lowhybred09). Competing in her very first Riverbassin.com tournament competition just weeks ago, Rachael has exhibited the true enthusiasm and love for chasing the largemouth, shoal and spotted bass we all know so well. Rachael has constantly been learning about the habits and little tricks of the trade to make herself a better fisherwoman. She’s definately doing a great job!! Wanna see what the payback is for persistence??? Watch this short video and find out!!!
This is a short video of me (PawPaw) prefishing with my new Riverbassin.com friend Plantmasterstim on the Ocmulgee River.
Tim is from Kentucky and was down here in Georgia to fish the final event of the year of the 2010 Riverbassin.com Tournament Trail held at the BassPro Shop in Macon, Ga..
Look out Ms. Shoalie……..here I come!!! To celebrate his birthday this week, Patrick Reif made the long journey to Georgia from his home in North Carolina in an attempt to catch his first trophy shoal bass. Patrick had planned to spend the next two days doing whatever it took to accomplish this goal. Will the shoal bass bug bite Patrick???? Watch and lets find out!!!!
Well…….BasserDrew has done gone and shamed me in front of the whole riverbassin world about not
videoing TyGa10 in my last video even though his name did appear in the CREDITS. This past
Thursday, TyGa and I got together and once again hit one of our local flows. TyGa is truly a great
sport and a pleasure to fish with as well a good friend. He doesn’t grumble or complain
(at least to me) the whole day long when on the river even when the fish might not be cooperating
as he would like them to. This is TyGa’s “Cameo Appearance” and this video is dedicated to him!!!!
Thanks Robert for being such a great friend! You will notice in the video that Robert is not much for
The main scene with TyGa is a rest stop we made midday to take a lunch break. What a beautiful setting!
New things and places are always exciting! The anticipation of fishing a new river is no exception. On Monday, 05/24/2010, TyGa10 and I invited Jason (LowHybred09) to join us on the beautiful but heavily stained Flint River.
Jason’s excitement was was high with anticipation of catching some shoalies….Join us and share in Jason’s first day on the Flint River……
I have to say that since taking up river kayak fishing, I have made many new friends. Each of them are from all walks of life and with totally different backgrounds than myself. This marvelous outdoor sport has provided me with many opportunities to meet new people, good and wonderful people and has also helped me to share with others the sport I personally love so much. Please join me on the river with three of my newest friends while chasing the elusive shoal bass on one of Georgia’s most beautiful rivers.
