AKA – Str8FiSHiN to the team.

Jason started fishing as a teenager and primarily fished from the banks of lakes, reservoirs, and the CA Delta. In 2012, he got into kayak fishing and fell in love with ocean fishing. Most of his kayak fishing experience comes from spending a lot of time on the water and learning from some the best. In addition to chasing big fish, he enjoys clamming, crabbing, and hunting using his Hobie kayak.

Bee Xiong - Hobie Team Member

Bee has been a local Sacramento fisherman ever since the early 2000’s. From the creeks, ponds, rivers, and lakes, Bee strives to get his personal best on all species. Hearing his reel scream has become an addiction to his regular weekend routine. Like most of the fisherman, Bee started fishing freshwater from the bank. In 2012, he decided to get into the kayak scene to expand his horizon and ever since then he became hooked. In 2015 Bee bought his first Hobie kayak and put his focus more on the salt species. From SoCal to NorCal, Bee has been riding the swells to target salmon, yellowtail, lingcod, rockfish, halibut, and bonitos. As we all know, the more we catch the longer our bucket-list will grow. Follow the CCK Fishing Team to see what Bee will catch next!

AKA Tails 2 Tales

Fishing for the past eight years primarily in the Bay Area. First fishing vessel purchased was an inflatable pontoon. Fishing freshwater lakes and sloughs for bass & stripers. I eventually moved to SoCal for a few years opening my eyes to a whole new world of sport fishing it was then when I picked up my first Hobie Outback back in 2013 my experience grew as I targeted Bay Bass, Calicos, Bonitas on my free time. After moving back to the Bay Area, I started targeting bigger game fish and knocking away at my bucket list species. Favorite species to target are Lingcod, Halibut, Salmon, and Sturgeon, in the San Francisco Bay. Venturing off to warmer waters I enjoy chasing down pelagic species like Yellowtail, White Sea bass. I own a 2016 Hobie Adventure Island, 2017 Pro Angler 14, 2018 Hobie Camo Outback. My adventure island is my favorite rig with a large platform and giving me the ability to fish further offshore with the stability and comfort.

Geoff’s passion for fishing first started at the age of 9 in Sasebo, Japan. Hitching rides from the local commercial fisherman to the neighboring 99 islands to fish while they checked their traps. As time progressed, his skills evolved in different countries, depending on the type of fish and seasons offerings. He has been fishing from Hobie kayaks for over a decade and recognizes the versatile and important role they play in advancing his ability to go after most fish he seeks. Geoff can now be found fishing the inner Bays of Northern California for Fish such as Halibut, Striped bass, or Sturgeon and the Coast for Salmon and a variety of Rockfish. Whether fishing from shore, kayak, or spear fishing, Geoff enjoys taking in the scenery, studying the water column, and embracing the art, patience, and challenge of fishing.
