Paul Lopes – Team Dakota Lithium – Kayak Fishing

Hometown: New Bedford, Rhode Island

I’m a 47 year old Husband, Father and Papa to 3 boys. I love Kayak fishing, both salt and freshwater. When I’m not fishing, I’m thinking about it!

Sport of choice in the winter? Summer?

In the winter – none, most depressing time of the year for me. In the summer – Fish , fish and more fishing!

What circuits do you compete in?

I fish my club in Rhode Island ( Rhode Island Kayak Bassin) and also the one in Massachusetts.

Wins, Accomplishments, and Big Moments

Last season I won my first 1st place finish and took Lunker that same day in a Rhode Island Tournament.

My big moment would have to be when I caught a sand shark that was over 5 feet long.

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

Had my cousin take me out when I was about 8 or 9 years old. I’ve been hooked since that day!

What is your favorite Dakota Lithium Product & WHY?

My favorite is the Powerbox! It gives me plenty of light when I’m setting up on early mornings when it’s still dark out and I now never have to worry about my phone dying out while I’m on the water!
