  • Kayaking Cane Bayou

    St. Tammany Trace Bridge over Cane BayouSliding off the wet clay of the boat launch, the traffic sounds of Hwy 190 are soon muffled by the pine flatwoods and cypress forest that immediately surround us.   Our twin kayaks glide along with little encouragement from our paddles, slipping through the marshy water.  The St. Tammany Trace stretches over us as we coast under a wooden bridge and the water expands before us.  It’s 6 AM on a warm Friday morning in June, and though we have put our kayaks in water just a few yards from a major highway, Nature has transported us to a timeless, unchanged Louisiana.

    Cole took 4th place in the tournament and helped raise funds for the Sunshine Program at Clarity Hospice. Cole shares his report from this weekend below:

    My friend Tyler Walther and I both love kayaking and fishing, and together we have formed a team called UP21 fishing. UP21 Foundation is a nonprofit organization started by Tyler's mom, Cassie Walther, and two other mothers that have children with Down syndrome. UP21’s mission is to provide support, resources and education to families of individuals with Down Syndrome, and the community, to foster an environment in which individuals with Down Syndrome achieve their full potential in their community. You can learn more about UP21 at their website www.up21foundation.org. By establishing the UP21 fishing team, we get to fish for a cause and make a difference in young children's lives, two things we really enjoy. Continue reading

    Many people love the joy and peace that comes with fishing. Fishing is a very popular hobby, especially in Sportsman’s Paradise: Louisiana. People really go all out when they buy their equipment. Typically, a fisherman is going to need a fishing rod, a tackle box, and the right kind of boat. Some fishermen love to use a regular fishing boat, but a few smart sportsmen are now switching over to a kayak. In the debate about which fishing boat is best to use, the clear winner is fishing with a kayak.  Here is more information on why the kayak is the boat of choice for fishermen.

  • Why I Scuba Dive

    Rob_Dad_300x225My passion for Scuba Diving started at an early age, growing up with a dive shop as a family owned business.  I remember tracking my dads air bubbles as I would follow along the shoreline. Always so curious about what he was experiencing.  I'll never forget my first scuba dive... at the age 11 my dad and I dove at one of the most beautiful places I've ever been in my life; at a lake called Holland Lake in Montana.
    A postcard setting with sparkling clear waters that fed from the surrounding high mountain snow peaks.  The experience that I had that day with my dad was one that started me down the path of my life's journey as a diver.  The thrill of exploring a new underwater world that holds endless possibilities for discovery is something that is impossible to explain. It must be discovered individually.  Sharing that experience with others has become my life’s work. Continue reading
