When Andrew Cameron and Miguel Pandich launched YakAngling Magazine this past summer, they weren’t expecting the rapid growth in popularity received since. After the first two issues released in the last half of 2014, YakAngling Magazine was awarded runner-up in category of Magazine of the Year in the annual Kayak Angler’s Choice Awards. Votes were submitted by kayak angling enthusiasts from 23 countries around the world.
In 2015 YakAngling Magazine is going monthly. The magazine has assembled a knowledgeable, enthusiastic team of writers and photographers, bringing the sport of kayak fishing to life at the turn of a page. If you haven’t had a chance to check it out, take the time. Just to name a few topics in the January 2015 edition, there’s advice on getting the best out of your camera setup, a striped bass fishing adventure, skinny water angling, understanding black crappie, a deep south recipe, and if you’re participating in the upcoming Kayak Bass Series you’ll want to check out the down low on the iAngler Tournament App that will be used to enter your catch. Speaking of tournaments, my good friend Stacey Martin writes about preparing for these events before arriving at your destination to get the most out of your time available.
So now, go check out this very practical publication that has…well…hit the water paddling!

When I moved to the Mobile Bay area five years ago, I met a funny guy who I would later learn was a darn good fisherman. And then, using his own words he compliments friends by, I found out what an even better person he was.
Stacey Martin, founder of thrillbilliesfishing.com, is one of the best anglers I know in the Mobile Bay area. He has uncovered decades of very reliable knowledge, trends and successful techniques for our bay area that catch fish. I enjoy targeting a wide array of species, and Stacey does too. He’s one of the top bowfin (grinnel) tour anglers in the south and places in nearly every saltwater inshore tournament I’ve competed against him in. I’ve even seen a short film he produced where he caught a tiger shark in the Gulf!
I have also been impressed that he takes the time to develop our new generation of anglers. Whether it’s techniques or the products he finds useful to fish with, he’s a wealth of information. Stacey decided to launch a website recently. Check it out! I think you’ll enjoy his future fishing reports, product reviews, blog, fishing adventures, and the fun short films too!
