Clay and Sheldon Grace are a father/son kayak fishing duo from Southeast Alabama. They enjoy paddling and fishing numerous creeks and rivers in Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. The skinnier the water the better, as they prefer to paddle moving waters in search of trophy river bass from their Jackson Kayaks. Occasionally they take trips to the salt in search of redfish and also wet wade with fly rods in hand. Sheldon is currently 15 years old and in the 10th grade. When he isn’t on the water, he enjoys playing basketball and serving with his church’s youth group. Sheldon currently holds the Florida state record shoal bass caught from the scenic Chipola River. Clay loves photography and art as much as the fishing. The accessibility and solitude that kayak fishing offers has given him a way to get out on the water and revel at God’s creation. He is always looking for new waters to paddle and explore in search of that perfect shot that he hopes will inspire others to get out on the water and paddle. Kayak fishing has taught both Sheldon and Clay the needs and benefits of conservation for riverine ecosystems especially in those rivers where native shoal bass swim.
