Hi...my name is Kyle "Smiley" Zemke, father of two and 37 years young. I am a Marine and powersports technician with roughly 20 years experience, and an avid fisherman! I love the outdoors and every season, if there is open water I will fish it! But in the winter months, when it is too cold, I enjoy hitting the slopes with my two boys.
Fishing has become a part of life for me and the sport of kayak fishing has become a part of me as well. I love to share my passion with as many as I can. The sport of kayak fishing has intrigued me since my first trip out and inspired me to push the limits and enjoy the sport in a whole new "up close and personal" kind of way that everyone should try at least once!
I love to chase all and any species I can but my most favorite would be the illusive smallmouth bass. I also enjoy the competitive side of kayak fishing as well. I have been lucky enough to be a member of the Hobie fishing team since 2014. My experiences in the last few years have been amazing and have taken me places I have only dreamed of! Tight lines and hope to see you on the water!
