I started off with throwing everything I could think of. I was getting more hits by seagulls on top water! Finally the wind picked up and the fishing totally turned around.

Fishing for bass top water, one of my favourite ways to target bass! The ability to get right into the thick pads enables me to get into those hard to reach spots.

Fishing the Border City Classic on June 28th in Windsor, Ontario. This 3rd annual event brought in 67 anglers from both Canada and the United States. This event was fun for new and seasoned kayak anglers and I will definitely be participating in 2014! Fishing the Border City Classic on June 28th in Windsor, Ontario.

I love fishing for northern pike in the spring! The kayak is a great way to sneak up on them in the shallows. I love fishing for northern pike in the spring! The kayak is a great way to sneak up on them in the shallows.

About Ashley

Ashley is a multi-species angler from Ontario, Canada. Her interest in fishing was sparked at age 5 by a family friend. Fishing with friends throughout her childhood and youth and then joining a B.A.S.S. fishing club after high school and college pushed her to pursue her passion further. Tournaments, involvement with kids fishing events, and winning the World Fishing Network’s Adopt An Angler Contest in 2009 gave Ashley a push in the fishing industry and inspired people to follow along with her adventures through her blog http://www.SheLovesToFish.com/.

Ashley got into kayaking in May 2011 after having her eye on a Hobie for quite some time. “I actually had the Outback in mind for a year and knew it was what exactly I wanted to get. For me it makes the most sense to be hands free for fishing, and kayaking gives me the ability to travel and fish new places with minimal expense. It’s such a stealth approach for fishing and an incredible way to spend the day on the water! I also enjoy the workout and how 'green’ kayaking is.”

Through social media, blogging and videos, magazine and newspaper articles, and her TV show Captured, Ashley is able to connect with anglers on a worldwide scale and promote the passion she has for fishing, especially from her Hobie!
