Smallmouth on the Allegheny

Hi Joe,

I went down the Allegheny River probably about 7-8 times this summer. Really enjoyed it.
We caught smallmouths mostly.
It wasn’t a banner year. You have to work hard for them. But it was fun.
Learning a lot about what to use and how to go about catching them.

I loaned my W500 kayak to two different guys and took them down the river (I used a standard kayak, which I hate). They love the WaveWalk and I’m trying to get them interested so they buy one. Also went down the river with another W500 owner who loves his WaveWalk.

My WaveWalk got pretty dirty from river water this summer. I need to try to clean it good before putting it up.

Recent kayak fishing tournaments results

I finished 2nd & 3rd respectively in the last two kayak fishing tournaments that I participated in.

Standing up to fish in my Wavewalk 500 is almost an unfair advantage compared to the other guys on their sit on top kayaks. Due to their low and uncomfortable sitting position they just can’t be as accurate when casting, and they sure can’t see their targets like I can when I’m standing in my Wavewalk.
Once in a while some of them stand up for short periods of time, when the water is glass calm, but not all day, like they’re fishing out of a bass boat. Like I can!

Bassin’ on top water, standing in my Wavewalk 500 (movie)

Here’s a new video of my latest bassin trip –
My Wavewalk got me to a honey hole… The Bass were hungry on a lake where the big boats can’t go. The Top water bite was on, what a blast!
I tied on a chug bug first thing and I caught six but did not get them all on video.
I did manage to get three on video by switching between a do nothing worm & a chug bug. Standing in my Wavewalk I just hammered them. They were taking both with a vengeance. What a morning!
