Spencer has been chasing fish of all species since he was old enough to walk. Currently residing in Iowa with his wife, Ella, and dog, Woody, he enjoys investigating the many small streams that cross the center of the state. Big fish have always been Spencer's passion in the 20+ years he has been on the water. If it has gills and pulls hard, he's definitely trying to catch it. He focuses mainly on catfish, but also targets hybrid striped bass and walleyes. He captures all of his adventures on his YouTube channel River Certified

Fishing isn’t just a guy’s hobby - for Erica and Drew, it’s an opportunity to spend time together with beautiful views as their backdrop while pursuing excitement and the thrill of the catch. They met in college, and some of their first dates were going out on Lake Lanier, GA fishing for spots and striped bass. Fast forward 11 years, and it’s still their favorite way to spend time together.
Whether fishing from their center console or in one of their Vibe kayaks, in freshwater or salt, every outing is a different experience. They enjoy the different strategies that come with different target species, and appreciate the reliability of go-to products that help them enjoy what they love. It doesn't take long after meeting them to learn that they value the relationships and friends they've formed along the way within the fishing community, and are always striving to learn new methods for landing big fish!
Paul Coenen's Dad taught him to crank a fishing reel before he could walk, and he hasn't stopped since. He makes his home near Lake Lanier in North Georgia, and loves to hit the lake in his kayak to get after its famous striped and spotted bass. He wants to be versatile on the water, and able to target whatever is biting at the time. Live bait for stripers? Check. Finesse fishing for big bass? No problem. Get out the fly rod to whup up on small water pan fish, or tangle with a trout? Absolutely! The best thing about fishing is endless possibilities, there’s always a new species to chase, a new technique to try, or a new piece of water to solve. All it takes is one more cast!
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. David was always an outdoors type of person, from playing in the dirt to hanging on the piers with his family tossing crab pots and casting rod. Growing up the only real fishing options for David were the piers or heading out to local rivers and doing shoreline stomping. There were always some unreachable places where he wanted to be able to fish but with his limited resources, it was rather difficult. David had to think of a way to get out further on the water to be able to open up some new opportunity. The Hunt for a boat or kayak began!
David stumbled upon some kayaks and met some kayak anglers who then took him out on their Hobie Kayaks. Eventually, he purchased a Hobie kayak for himself. Kayak fishing has opened up many types of fisheries from Freshwater to Saltwater Fishing. I have been able to mark off a ton of different species off my bucket list and many more to come.
Keep the Rudder’s down and Tight Lines!
