Conventional Fishing Expert Jay Wallen
Wintertime Bass, ask me how!
  • Jay Wallen

    I'm a professional kayak angler, I travel the country fishing for largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass. I have been fishing for over 35 years for various species all over the United States. I have even competed for team USA at the Hobie Fishing Worlds 7 in Amal, Sweden. I spend 140+ days a year on the water and I love every minute of it.

    I have a passion for bass fishing whether it is from a kayak, boat or on the bank. I am here to help you get the best possible equipment so that your time spent on the water is as productive and enjoyable as possible.

    I also have knowledge of freshwater fishing in general, so no matter if you are chasing catfish, trout, striper, white bass, or panfish like crappie and bluegill. I am going to work to make sure you have what you need at a price you can afford to go out and have fun!

    Jay did an outstanding job!
    From the get go Jay was knowledgeable and responsive to all my questions. He listened to my needs and what I was looking for and gave spot on recommendations. Also very important is that he made me feel like i was talking to just another person and not some salesman trying to shove products down my throat! He did an outstanding job and I ended up purchasing one of the fishing rods he recommended. I look forward to his help in the future!

    Great help and very knowledgeable. I relayed a general idea of what I might run into and area of fishing and Jay gave me matching options to choose from. Only wish you guys would mail to APO's so I don't have to wait so long for the go around. Other than that a solid experience!!

    I loved the help I got picking out my gear. Were I got frustrated was wanting to finish my order and having to wait to get some answers and not knowing when that was going to come.This order is for my grandson and the extra time it took to place the order means It probably wont get here before he does. But I am still very excited and probably wouldn’t of got all the great products if it wasn’t for the help.

    Have a rod hard to find? Jay can find it.
    Jay Wallen, was very knowledgeable and was able to give some amazing recommendations. Jay went out of his way to find the perfect rod that I was looking even after the first recommendation I was not satisfied with. Thanks Jay, you just learned yourself a lifetime customer.

    Jay knows his stuff.
    Tackle organization is something I have always struggled with, Jay was a big help in coming up with some ideas for what to use and how to keep myself organized.
