Meet Roberto Briones – Kayak & Ice Fishing Pro Staff

Roberto Briones – Team Dakota Lithium – Kayak & Ice Fishing

Hometown: Embrun, Ontario, Canada

I started fishing in 2002 and fell in love with it after catching my first bass. The love grew into fishing tournaments out of bass boats. Studied bass fishing like a nerd. Life events made me sell my beloved Bullet Bass Boat in 2013 and that’s when I made the switch to kayak fishing. I’ve been “hooked” ever since!

Sport of choice in the winter? Summer?

In the summer I love Kayak Fishing…. In winter it is ice fishing

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

Boat fishing was getting too expensive. Wanted an easier-to-get-to-the-water way of fishing and found my niche in kayak fishing
