Our Vision

To travel the world and tell the story of kayak angling.  Our sponsors have made this possible and we are showing the world why kayak fishing is now said to be one of the fastest growing sports in the industry.

Our Story

In the early 2000's kayak fishing came on strong for a kid in Corpus Christi, TX. As time past and the action camera craze began, Chris Castro purchased his first camera for $80 dollars. This was the beginning of what would later be known as the Next Level Fishing TV show.  He would eventually not only share his fishing adventures as a content creator, but also become and ambassador for the sports growth while also writing for leading fishing publications across the world. Chris Castro still currently lives in Corpus Christi, TX.
