Craig Dye – Team Dakota Lithium – Kayak Fishing

Hometown: Holly Springs, Georgia

Craig Dye calls Holly Springs, GA home but he was born and raised in Baton Rouge, LA. He grew up fishing many locations in his home state of Louisiana; from Toledo Bend Reservoir all the way down to Grand Isle, where he fished for bass, redfish, and speckled trout. Craig’s passion for kayak fishing began as he started chasing bass in the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta, GA in 2008. While in Atlanta, he discovered there were many competitive events he could fish from a kayak, so he started entering tournaments all over the Southeast. He is a 2X Tennessee State Champion, KBF Trail Champion, Riverbassin Trail Champion, and Pan AM Kayak Gold Medalist.

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

My passion for kayak fishing began as I started chasing bass in the Chattahoochee River in Atlanta, GA in 2008. My wife, Kim and I were looking for something to do together and the rest is history.
