Jay Wallen was bass fishing on Reelfoot Lake recently when his cellphone rang, breaking the silence of the morning that found him so far back in the sticks that he hadn’t heard the sound of a boat motor for hours. Other than buzzing mosquitoes and songbirds it was total silence. The caller was checking on how Wallen’s fishing had gone that morning. “Not bad,” he said. “I’ve got this area to myself and it’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood. It’s why I do what I do.”
What he does is bass fish out of a kayak. Not just any kayak, mind you, but the newest and hottest fishing kayak on the market, Hobie Boat’s Pro Angler 14 equipped with a Hobie MirageDrive that enables Wallen to silently glide through the shallow waters of Reelfoot Lake … or the big waters of Kentucky, Percy Priest and Pickwick lakes.
