John Gibson

Home base: Halifax, Nova Scotia

For Lifelong angler, John Gibson, it’s not an obsession it’s a necessity.  Fishing from paddled powered vessels most of that time; made the transition to a Kayak a natural progression. John has been heavily involved in the Kayak fishing industry for the last 5 years, first as a member to an Administrator and now the owner of Canadian Kayak Anglers website ( boasting more than 7000 members.

Any given day you can see John out targeting Striped bass, Cod, Pollack, Flounder and other saltwater monsters, or out on a fresh water body of water trying to trick as many monster Smallmouth bass, Shad, Trout he can get his hands on.

He has been a very loud advocate in his area of Atlantic Canada, and across the country promoting, supporting kayak fishing to anyone that will listen. He is the main voice behind CKA’s Twitter account @cankayakanglers.  You can also check him out on his personal twitter account @johngibson76, and blog, as well as YouTube.  Be on the lookout for him going forward because were certain he’ll be making a big splash. 

His favourite “Go to boat” would be the Ocean Kayak Ultra 4.7.  With its hull design and layout, it makes for the prefect fishing platform while being a breeze to paddle in even the worst conditions.  You can’t beat that boat for choppy rough waters.

His other boat would be the Trident Prowler 13 Angler.  By far, the best all-around boat on the market given its versatility, stability, controllability, size and weight.
