Spring time in Binkleman has its challenges when it comes to fishing. kJ, Marty or KayakJak,
take your pick, he'll answer to any of these names. I'm partial to KayakJak. This is a guy who's passion for the world of
kayaking and especially kayak fishing is unsurpassed!
I've had the honor and privilege to have spent 2 days kayaking and
fishing with KayakJak. As noted above, spring time fishing has its challenges. I've never met KayakJac live and in person.
Talked to him a couple of times on the phone and pestered him for information by email and watched several videos of him on
Utube. From the first minute of meeting him, I had the feeling that we had been friends for a lifetime. That's what type of
guy he is. No hype and no air about him. KayakJak is the real deal, the Indiana Jones of kayak fishing.
Being new to the
sport of kayak fishing, KayakJak's approach to the "newbie" was terrific. He's very professional without the stuffyness that
sometimes follows a professional guide or instructor.
Talk about going out of his way to make your trip into a lifetime
memory, I swear this guy planted some fish so I could experience what it's like to catch a fish from a kayak. While giving
me space to practice some of the tips he had for me, KayakJak scouted ahead and found the hiding places of the ever elusive
Geez- I've just read thru the above, kinda sounds a little hokie and like he paid me to say the things above, no I
paid him! And not near enough for what I got!

What an amazing day! I didn't know what to think about a guided fishing trip, but Marty was something
else. We started out with the biggest bass I have ever seen! He knew where, how, and with what. He had everything covered.
We had an amazing time and I can't wait to go back out with him. My only regret was not taking my son on this trip. He is
going next time! Jay Holtzen-Stromsburg, NE
Thanks so much for a great experience! Loved the pictures Betty sent on to me. We love to tell
everyone how much fun it is to fish from a kayak. Enjoyed the meal. You are a delightful person and guide. Thanks again.
Hello, Marty, we thank you for a terrific time, and we laughed a lot and thought and talked
about the experience all the way home. I am sending you more money! We had more fun than we paid for.
Just wanted to let you know that your kayak fishing was EXCELLENT. As I mentioned as we were
talking, this was just the "reconnaissance" trip. The next time I come down I will camp at the lake for a couple of days
and we can get in on more of the evening action.
And............here is a picture of your double-header. I'll be watching for this to show up
on your website!

"First of all I want to thank KayakJack for all of his help. I probably wouldn't have done
this well without him.
I spent a few days out at Rock Creek this week, and it was some of the best fishing
I have experienced in a while. I caught over 100 fish in two days, including 1 18" channel cat, 4 big fat dark green bass,
all between 12-15", at least 2 dozen crazy trout that went airborne every time I hooked one, a boatload of perch; some up
to 9 inches, a few nice crappie, one big readear, I saw some HUGE perch and sunfish that weren't willing to bite, and on my
last cast, I hooked something that bent my ultralight completely over and was gone in less than 10 seconds. Everything
was caught on small jigs and inline spinners, except the cat...he was caught on cutbait.
The weather was
perfect, the lake was beautiful, the water was crystal clear with almost 6 feet of visibility, KayakJack was incredibally
helpful, and I would recommend Rock Creek to anyone."

What a great trip! The prime rib and corn was unbelievable! I love to fish with you Marty because
you know the trends of the lake. You still owe me some cobbler. Thanks again and plan on another trip soon!
Had great fun fishing with you! Hope to get out this Fall and get the big ones that got away.

We did receive the photos, thanks so much. It was such a fun trip and we have been telling everyone about you and
the fun time we had.

Hi, Marty - our little fishing trip has another convert to kayaking. especially fishing and
touring as I enjoyed my maiden trip in a kayak with you at Rock Creek Lake early this past June.
I have purchased
a FeelFree Apollo touring kayak, sit-on-top, as I like them better and easier for an old man to get on board and off again.
I have added a fishing pod made especially for this model and am anxious to try it out soon on Falls of the Neuse Lake in
as crappie season is here. This lake has a high population of crappie over a 1 1/4 lbs.
you would like to know you've made another kayak fisherman!!!!
Thanks for the great time last June and really enjoyed
your company, see the next time I come to Nebraska.
Just a quick note to thank you for your effort to start something new and fun here at Rock Creek
Lake. The Kayak Fishing Tournament was a lot of fun. If I can get the kayak's you can count the girls and I in next summer.
We had a blast! Keep up the good work! Keep your line wet <>< <>< <>< Hal-Parks, NE
Sure enjoyed my introduction to kayak fishing in 2006 with you and enjoying my kayak. Just thought
I'd enjoyed my trip too.
