Brad Hole – Team Dakota Lithium – Kayak Fishing

Hometown: Seattle, Washington

I’ve been a fisherman my entire life and a kayak angler for 9 years. Being a multi-species angler has allowed me to check off multiple bucket list fish. An 80 lb Halibut, 150 lb sturgeon, Salmon, Sailfish, Peacock Bass, Clown Knifefish and Permit. While my list has gotten shorter my love the sport continues to grow

Sport of choice in the winter? Summer?

and Heroes on the Water fund raising events.

How did you start in your sport? (What’s your origin story?)

While I love fishing and enjoying fishing with friends on their boats I never really wanted to own a boat. I picked up a copy of Kayak Angler Magazine in 2011 while on vacation in the Outer Banks. I was blown away at how far kayaks had come along. I got back from my vacation, demoed several model Hobie kayaks and bought my first Pro Angler. I was one of the few evangelists for the sport in the PNW.

What is your favorite Dakota Lithium Product & WHY?

12V 10ah Dakota Lithium Battery and 12V 23ah battery. Weight, Reliability and Endless Power to keep up with top of the line fish finders that draw a ton of power. Needed a larger battery this year to run my Humminbird Helix 9 Mega. The 12V 23ah battery is amazing.
