By Denis Isbister, Fisherman and TV Personality on Wild Fish Wild Places The southernmost reaches of the Patagonia region in Argentina boasts some of the most unexplored and rich fisheries in the world. Producing television shows for the last 12 years I have been to some of the most remote and wild places on earth but this area of the world is without a doubt, one of the best. Our good friends at Estancia Laguna Verde aka Jurassic Lake, invited the crew back to fish, film and explore some new waters on the big lake that they had just opened up … Continue reading Luggage Goes Fishing in Patagonia
By Warren Maddox At first glimpse of the chocolate powerhouse, I knew we were in for an epic river run. I hadn’t seen water this powerful in person since running the Lions Head section of the Matanuska River in Alaska. The difference was that I had taken that current in a huge raft; I’d be taking on this challenge in a Sea Eagle Explorer 380x. Seeing others at the Big Eddy put-in quickly dispelled any apprehensions, and I began suiting up. The Upper Salt River — a true Arizona classic, and one I had run before at low flows. At … Continue reading Big Salt, Big Adventure

By Tom Schlichter Sidney Stuffle didn’t have a lot of help getting started with kayaking. Like a lot of people without friends or family who take to the water, the 26-year old from Tucson, AZ, had to mostly figure it out himself. “That’s all part of the fun, I guess,” laughs Stuffle, who after just three years in the sport is already on his second inflatable kayak. “There’s not a big kayaking community out here in Arizona, so I didn’t have anyone to warn me to avoid the rough water starting out, either. As you might imagine, the first few … Continue reading SIDNEY STUFFLE: PUNCHING THROUGH TO BIG TIME FUN!
by Tonya Ferrara School’s in session, the leaves are turning, cooler weather is coming in, pumpkin spice is everywhere and days are getting shorter. Though we don’t want to think about it, sadly for many of us, boating season is coming to an end (insert sad face, bring on the tears and get ready to hunker down). Here at the Sea Eagle headquarters in beautiful, historic Port Jefferson, NY, that means we won’t be going out on the water…as much. Our fearless leader, Cecil C. Hoge, Jr. does brave the cold for a daily morning paddle in the local bay … Continue reading What to Do With Your Sea Eagle in the Winter
by Bill Marts I had just received my new Sea Eagle FishSUP12.6 inflatable SUP and wanted more than ever to get to fly fishing for carp. I am new to fishing from a SUP. But I have day-dreamed, thought about, imagined, planned for and was making it happen on this trip. I KNEW it would be a perfect platform from which to hunt for carp. I, 99% of the time, sight fish for carp and shallow-water fishes (bass, bluegill, crappie etc.) and fishing from a SUP had to be the answer. It is all about stealth with shallow-water-flyfishing and sighting … Continue reading EARTH, WIND AND FIRE – the week it only got worse, but all was good in the end
By Tom Schlichter “I’m all about adventure,” says J. P. Garza, 51, of Villahermosa, Tabasco, Mexico. “I love to explore and discover natural new places, especially by water in the southeast of my country and in Central America.” Garza has traveled most of these regions by roads, terraces and trails, not only by car but by mountain bike as well. In fact, until recently, he considered himself a serious cyclotourist. These days, however, he prefers touring with his Sea Eagle RazorLite® 473rl inflatable kayak (IK). He has paddled over 3,000 kms (1,900 miles,) he says, never repeating the same river, … Continue reading FOR J.P. GARZA, SEA EAGLE’S RAZORLITE® 473rl LEADS TO ADVENTURE
By Tom Schlichter “I can’t tell you how good it feels to get back on the water and paddle,” says David Jones. “It’s taken a lot of experimenting over the years, but we finally have something that works really well.” Jones, president of the Florida Disabled Outdoors Association (FDOA; www.fdoa.org), is a 63-year old hemiplegic who cannot use his left arm. He loves to be on the water and, up until this summer, had greatly missed being able to fully participate in paddling situations. With the help of fellow FDOA member and friend, Thomas Weldon, however, Jones is thrilled to … Continue reading Ingenuity Opens New Doors for Disabled Paddlers
by Tom Schlichter Suzanne Daigle had wanted an inflatable kayak for a long time. She wasn’t quite sure where to start looking, but she did have a pretty good idea of what she needed. “Fortunately,” she said, “a friend steered me over to Sea Eagle and it turned to be a perfect match. What great advice!” Daigle, you see, was planning to sell her house, buy an RV, and drive around the country checking out places she had always wanted to visit while finding new spots to investigate along the way. It didn’t take long for her to do some … Continue reading GOING MOBILE WITH THE SEA EAGLE 385ft FASTTRACK™
By Tom Schlichter “I guess you could say I’m hooked on inflatable watercraft when it comes to fishing and boating,” says Darren Lowe, 50 of Bunker Hill, WV. I have three different Sea Eagle models already and each one has a purpose.” No kidding. Lowe owns a Sea Eagle 375fc FoldCat™ pontoon boat, 380x Explorer Kayak, plus a 14sr Sport Runabout that his wife got him for Father’s Day last year. According to Lowe, different scenarios determine his choice of vessel for the day. “I was raised on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi so it wasn’t until I had a family … Continue reading ANGLER’S RULE #1: NO BANANAS!
