Rocky Ly was pitching a jig in less than five feet of water at an undisclosed 850-acre reservoir east of Atlanta, Geogia when he hit paydirt – a chuck of a staging largemouth. Cleanly done; Ly steered his hog right into the net.

Ly is one of the four founders of the Hmong Kayak Fishing Club and a new Jackson Kayak pro staffer as of last year. He fishes for just about everything out of his kayak but loves little more than catching bass.
