Virginia Salvador – “Unforgettable” To Say The Least! 

“In addition to working in the medical field, I’m a biologist, published scientist, and an outdoor freelance writer. I enjoy traveling to fish for marlin, tuna, mahi mahi, tarpon, amberjack, grouper, and peacock bass. My absolute favorite thing to fish for is white sturgeon. It has been a life changing experience fishing with Captain Zack at GateCrasher Fishing in San Francisco! My objective is to bring awareness to this prehistoric dinosaur, promote catch and release and provide clients an unforgettable experience.”

“Being a deckhand is a labor of love. Carrying 10 rods around used to be cumbersome, now my job just got that much easier!”

– Virginia Salvador

Virginia also recently got into kayak fishing and is already doing what she does best! Check out her new kayak with our Tri-Mount 3 rod rack installed in the back. Now she can transport and protect her fishing rods anywhere on or off the water and swap rod holders directly from her #RodRunner to her kayak Tri-Mount!

Colby Blackwell – Tandem Kayak Fishing

”I Love to Fish” and I’m a multi species fisherman but I’m drawn to BIG fish and offshore kayak fishing.  I enjoy the different variety of fishing offshore, you never know what you are going to catch such as Amberjack, Tuna, Shark, King Mackerel, Snapper, Bonita, Grouper, Redfish, Sailfish and others. To catch this wide variety of fish I carry multiple rods (sabiki, jigging, inshore, offshore, trolling, surf) when I travel. The best way I have found to transport and protect my rods is with #RodRunner carriers and rod racks!  

A couple of the largest catches on the Yak are a 182.5 lb Yellow Fin Tuna on a 50W reel out of Venice, LA. He took us on a sleigh ride of over 2.5 miles at top speeds of 4.5 knots for 1 ½ hrs. before we landed it. Also, I landed an estimated 11-12ft , 500 lb shark using 30 lb mono and a small talica 12ii reel. Hooked him at 145 ft and he towed us for 2 hrs. to a depth of 350 ft before we landed and released him.

Kayak fishing is intense you must be patient, technical, physically fit and a multi-tasker to be a good kayak fisherman. There are so many things happening on a kayak all at once, such as paddling, steering, balancing, gaffing, watching out for boats, all while trying to catch and reel in a fish.  Also, not to mention that your sitting down, closer to the water, at the mercy of the current which makes it all more exciting.   All these factors require a different approach than angling from a boat.  I love testing my skills and ability against big predator fish in their habitat.
