              Team Ocean Kayak’s Vincent Rinando and Sam Rinando were asked again to participate in a kayak fishing roundtable discussion held at the Bass Pro Shop in Katy, Texas.  Team Ocean Kayak brought with it a fully rigged tournament kayak, along with a laptop with videos and pictures of the topics discussed.

           Discussions centered around kayak rigging, shallow water redfish tactics, how to spot waking fish, and trophy trout tactics.  Team Ocean Kayak’s Vincent Rinando also gave a quick paddle instruction on proper paddling techniques.

The crowd was a bit smaller than the first roundtable, with about 15 participants.  But the crowd was well engaged, participated, and seemed to enjoy the presentation.



Nice comments from an attendee


It was an incredible two hours....... went by too fast....... Vincent and Sam had a fully rigged OK Trident Kayak on display and showed and explained all of their gear. I just had to pick up a couple of new items after the Roundtable was complete. Film footage was exciting and used as a tool to explain how to Sight cast and Blind cast for those fish. Top waters, soft plastics, etc were discussed and the Improved Clinch and Rapala knots were demonstrated. Vincent also demonstrated proper paddling techniques. This was all free and I recommend anyone who missed this Roundtable to be sure to attend the next one. Thanks Vincent and Sam for an exciting two hours.
