Brendan is known down in Louisiana as one of the “go-to-guys” for anything kayak fishing related. Whether it’s a simple tip on what lure to use for tomorrow’s trip out on the water, to the more complicated kayak rigging applications, Brendan is always looking to help his fellow kayak fisherman. As a founding member of the Bayou Coast Kayak Fishing Club, Brendan has been very involved in the promotion of kayak fishing since it took off in Louisiana. His passion is exploring and learning new coastal waters and he will often venture far from his hometown for a single days fishing trip. He is an admitted topwater junkie, and his tackle collection could almost justify an airing on Hoarders. You can catch weekly kayak fishing reports from Brendan on the “Outdoors with Don Dubuc” radio program Saturday mornings at 6:20am CST. http://tunein.com/radio/WWL-870-s23790/
