||Bill Schultz lives in New Berlin, WI. Since catching his first smallmouth bass in 1994, he has caught and released over 26,700. Bill's popular talks at sports shows and fishing events have turned hundreds onto the tremendous opportunities and excitement of kayak fishing for smallmouth bass on lakes and rivers throughout Wisconsin. Bill is also a contributing writer for several top web sites and magazines. After many years of fishing, Bill discovered kayak fishing in a big way over a dozen years ago. Sharing his excitement for kayak fishing and chasing smallmouth bass has become a passion for him. Bill is on the Pro Staffs for Jackson Kayak, Aqua-Bound/Bending Branches Paddles, St. Croix Rods and Malone Auto Racks.
This talk will take a look at the many questions someone who is just getting into kayak fishing might ask. It will look at the variety of kayaks available, including what length is best for someone, and touch on pedal vs. self-propelled. Bill will also discuss paddles, transporting and rigging. The overall theme - keep it simple to start and add items as you find out you may need them. Ideally, you will walk away with a much better idea of what you actually need, which should save time and money as you get into kayak fishing.
