We are excited to announce two new GOPC Kayak Fishing Team members:

Tim “stew-rat” Stewart – Tim is a Charlotte N.C. native and longtime Mt. Holly resident having the Catawba river within minutes of him his whole life. Founder of the Hardcore Kayak Fishing Team and VP of the Mt. Island Wildlife Stewards. An all year kayak fisherman for over 12 years and owner of 5 yaks. Besides fishing he enjoys any activities that will get him out in nature. Anyone who is interested in becoming a paddle fishermen, area tournament info, wildlife events, or info on the Catawba can feel free to drop him a line at stukayakfish@bellsouth.net

Bo Anders – Bo is a native of central Kentucky where he spent the first 22 years of his life chasing smallmouth in local streams, largemouth in regional lakes, and everything else in between. He relocated to Huntersville, NC, in 2004, but didn’t begin kayak fishing until 2008 when he purchased a small sit-on-top from a coworker on a whim. It took one trip to the lake and the discovery of a local fishing blog (ncangler.com) to convert him to a paddle fisherman. He’s fished every available weekend since, launching his excursions in driving rain, blistering sun, and skim ice conditions year round. He is married to his wife Amanda who is wonderfully understanding of the addiction that is kayak fishing.
