Jason Gardner – Team Dakota Lithium – Kayak Fishing

Hometown: Topsham, Maine

I am a Kayak Angler that takes competition seriously but not myself. If I can’t have fun doing this, it’s time to find something else to do. I have met a lot of great people over the year, many of them I am happy to call my friends.

Sport of choice in the winter? Summer?

Winter – Ice fishing, when I have time. Summer – kayak fishing

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

Had a friend of mine talk me in to getting a kayak for fishing. I have always been competitive so when I found out I could do that and compete, it was a quick, easy, and natural decision to start.

What is your favorite Dakota Lithium Product & WHY?

54ah Battery. I created my own battery box for it. I run 2 GoPros, LEDs, Phone Charger, and my 9” Raymarine Element HV with no fear of running out of power.
