“We love chasing big fish in hard to reach places, and Wilderness Systems kayaks are the best tools available for getting us there,” said Pro Staff Director, Chad Hoover. “In the Wilderness Systems fishing world, there is no body of water too big or too small, no location too remote or access too limited. It is the number one reason why I am successful in reaching bass and gamefish where no other craft can. Wilderness Systems kayaks are the most dependable, durable, and comfortable fishing kayak on the water,” he added.
