Drew

Drew Petzel - Hobie/CCK Team Member

Drew began his fishing journey in 2018 after buying a rod and reel combo, while exploring the sport on YouTube and various social media platforms. This curiosity eventually led to him to buy his own kayak and begin his own journey.

What started as a casual interest soon sparked into a passionate hobby that led him to explore the many different fisheries found along the coast, lakes and rivers.

In Northern California Drew targets salt-water species such as King Salmon, California Halibut, White Sturgeon, Lingcod and Rockfish. Additionally, he targets freshwater species such as: Largemouth and Smallmouth bass, Rainbow and Brown Trout and Catfish, making him a well-rounded angler and a great ambassador to the kayak fishing community.  

In August of 2021, Drew moved down to Southern California and now is blessed to chase Yellowtail, White Sea Bass, Calico and Spiny Lobsters. Drew will continue under team CCK as their Southern California representative.
