A Year in Review

A Year in Review
And just like that, another year has notched itself into the history books. I feel almost as if I went to sleep yesterday, it being a cold day in January 2013, only to wake up and find it is an entirely new year. Time sure flies when you are fishing!

Looking back, 2013 was a decent year on the water. Cliff and I zeroed in on some Galveston area spots, really learning them in detail via numerous trips throughout the year. The year began with Cliff landing a monster that I failed to document. The summer brought super-skinny water and a lot of mucking through the marsh chasing redfish, flashing their backs and tails. The fall brought with it the always fun-to-watch schooling reds along grass lines and a few young anglers catching milestone fish.

This past year also completed my second full year of being a part of the TSFMag team. What a fun ride it has been thus far. Reader feedback has increased greatly and I have really been enjoying receiving fishing tales, photos and questions from our readers; so please keep 'em coming. I hope to bring y'all plenty of (at least eleven) good reports and photos of kayak fishing adventures this year.

As we kick off 2014, I can't help but ponder what adventures will present themselves. Maybe I will venture across the Louisiana border for a trip or two into Cajun country. Maybe I work harder on finding that trophy trout that has eluded me up to this point. What is for certain is that whatever it may be; I will be ready for it with a kayak and a fishing rod. Good luck to everyone on the water this year!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the past year. Maybe they will encourage more readers to pick up a paddle and a fishing rod.
