Just saw a pretty cool article from the Houston Chronicle about Bryan Townsends new state record (and pending IGFA world record) guadalupe bass

It was caught on a trip to the Lower Colorado River with Shea McClanahan from All Water Guides. I have to admire the work they put in to make sure they kept that fish alive and that it was documented as a pure strain Guadalupe bass. Congrats to the angler and the guide, that is a fish of a lifetime!

Ken Whiting does a great job breaking down Aqua Bound’s Ray series of kayak paddles in this video. If you’re trying to figure what paddle is right for you, this is a great addition to a previous blog post I made: Kayak paddle sizing. I’ve enjoyed using both the Sting Ray Hybrid and the Surge Carbon from Aqua Bound and can definitely attest to the durability of their paddles. The carbon series is incredibly light weight as well, which means less fatigue when out on the water. Be sure to check out Aqua Bound when you’re in the market for a new paddle – I promise you won’t be disappointed.
