To the weak POS fisherman in the powerboat who stole my 12′ carbon fiber 2pc pushpole from behind the attorney’s house on Ocean Drive off the ICW in Rockport yesterday: some of us EARN the things we have, but still aren’t too attached to them. So I hope you really enjoy that pushpole you just […]

The Freedom Hawk Pathfinder cruising in to the dock at my friend’s house in Rockport, Texas, after a good morning of fishing. I was one Flounder short of a double inshore slam in less than four hours. But I wanted y’all to see the way my Pathfinder works and looks with the trolling motor and […]

Over the past month I have finally gotten all of the resources together to outfit my 2012 Freedom Hawk Pathfinder 14 foot stand-up fishing kayak exactly the way I want it. I do have a new Humminbird PiranhaMax 160P that I could convert from a portable to fixed mounted system, and I have considered it. […]

See my new 2 minute video from my Freedom Hawk Pathfinder. With the optional motor mount installed, I’ve equipped my Pathfinder kayak with a Minn Kota Riptide saltwater trolling motor (model RT42S30). LOOK: NO HANDS!

Let me explain how I generally work with manufacturers when I review their equipment. They send it. I use it for awhile. If I am impressed with it enough that I want to add it to my primary gear, then I will review it and keep it. If I am impressed enough that I think it is good for some folks, but not really what I want for some reason, then I will usually review it and send it back if they want it back. If not, I will sell it. If I do not like it, I will almost never write the review. Now, if the product (or service) is a rip-off I will write that review. That is the risk companies take and they know it. Yes, they often get upset and they'll never deal with me again. Big deal. They aren't worthy anyway. Some have actually had very good attitudes about it and made huge changes as a result of my feedback. One company went out of business after a major big box retailer cancelled a contract for 40,000 units of their product after reading my review. I had declared...honestly...that I believed their product was hazardous to the public. They threatened to sue me - but I gave up waiting to be served the papers about a decade ago.

I spent last week fishing in Florida with my 2012 Freedom Hawk Pathfinder stand-up fishing kayak. In the review I wrote on the Pathfinder that was published in the March issue of Florida Fly Fishing Magazine, I said that those were my initial impressions based on a shakedown cruise and that I would follow up […]
