I grew up just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania fishing the many rivers and creeks the area has to offer. My primary passion is kayak bass fishing but I also like to chase Musky from time to time. I average 10-15 kayak bass tournaments a year across the eastern side of the U.S. In 2013, I had four top three tournament finishes and six in 2014. I am also the founder and owner of 412 Bait Company by Donald Corbett.
By far my favorite type of kayak fishing is on swift rivers. It’s something about the adventures that always seem to present themselves when setting up and doing river floats. The Smallmouth Bass might have a little to do with it as well! My love of river fishing is what brought me to Jackson kayaks in the first place. In my opinion, there are no fishing kayaks on the market that can compete with the Coosa series.
I enjoy watching the sport of kayak fishing continuing to grow and sharing my passion with others. Kayak fishing offers a level of relaxation that I hadn’t previously found in life and I like nothing more than seeing a brand new kayak fishermen discover that. I will always try to continue to improve as an angler and ambassador to the sport! I look forward to meeting and fishing with as many like-minded individuals as possible in the fishing community.
