This week the website has been viewed well over a thousand times, so you may have already noticed our featured August angler, Mario Perez.  It’s always great meeting people while fishing, but what about outside the water? This month Mario Perez is ‘On the Hook’ with a little Q&A.

Mario Perez – August Featured Angler – Corpus Christi, Texas

NLF-TV: Why do you choose kayak fishing?

Mario: The ease of being able to launch from just about anywhere. The versatility of fishing in inches of water or being offshore in 60′, and the rush of a sleigh ride.


NLF-TV: What is the best day of fishing you have ever had?

Mario: Maaaaan that’s a tough one. I’ll go with our first time finally hooking up to a king!  Hearing the drag scream, having multiple runs; just action you don’t find in the bay.


NLF-TV: If you could only take one thing in your tackle box, what would it be?

Mario: A pack of pre rigged down south lures lol.  I’ll eat forever! http://www.downsouthlures.com/


NLF-TV: HA! Alright time for a hard question, Sashimi or Sushi?

Mario: lmao sushi


NLF-TV: If tomorrow you hang up the yak and retire, what fish are you landing today?

Mario: I’d be on the hunt for the good ole’ Texas redfish.

NLF-TV: You da man Mario, keep up the great work and good luck winning our peoples choice Photo Of The Year Award.






We have named his photo ‘Thrashing and Bashing’, and it’s a fantastic moment in time that remind us of another rush; close combat fishing.  We have also featured this photo on our latest offshore episode where you can actually see this fish toward the end of the video.
