Kayak Fishing Programs

Kayak Fishing has become a growing part of Shank’s Mare’s paddlesports program.  We are pleased to have our own Shank’s Mare Fishing Team including Andrew Morrow and Kevin Costello.  These avid kayak fishermen, along with our own staff member Devin Winand, conduct our clinics and programs, and are always available to give you information on your kayaks, accessories, and any tips you may want on fishing area waters.  We have so many kayak fishing programs, we now have added this full page to our website, and invite you to read on and join in on the angling adventures.
