BASS Elite Pro Provides Kayak Anglers with Winning Tactics


Old Town Canoes and Kayaks is proud to announce an exciting new video series called “Bass Fishing Friday” on Old Town’s Facebook page, a monthly kayak bass fishing series hosted by BASS Elite pro Keith Combs. The series will cover everything from seasonal fish movement to presentations best suited for kayak bass fishing.

“We are thrilled to present a new branded series of bass fishing video tips that will result in our customers catching more and bigger bass from Old Town Canoes and Kayaks,” says Ryan Lilly, brand manager for Johnson Outdoors’ Watercraft Division. “Keith was the perfect pro for this video series, delivering easy-to-follow techniques for successful year-round bass fishing.”

Combs says he was thrilled to not only shoot a cool Old Town Predator PDL feature video for the Classic, but to also have the opportunity to reach out directly to other kayak bass anglers with the “Bass Fishing Friday” video series.

“I tried to summarize the locations and presentations for numerous periods in the bass fishing calendar—stuff that can take years to learn,” Combs said. “My hope is that this information helps other kayak bass anglers catch more bass no matter where they live.”

Keith and his wife Jennifer are converts to kayak fishing, and originally saw the burgeoning watercraft as a way to access hard-to-reach bass waters near their Huntington, Texas home.

This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

“At first, kayaks were simply a way to get on waters that we wanted to fish,” Keith says. “But a whole new world has opened up to us. You’ve got way more stealth than you have in a bass boat, and I’ve learned a lot from watching bass up in the really tight spots. And, it’s just plain fun—there’s definitely something to be said for being so close to the water and being able to pedal your way to the fish.”

The couple added it doesn’t feel like exercise, but it is, which is also good.

“Fishing from our Old Town PDLs makes for some great R&R, even when standing, flipping and fishing like money’s on the line. It’s a stress-relief valve, for sure.”
