Team Lost Anchovy
Keith Nguyen and is an avid kayak fisherman in the California Bay Area. His passion for the sport and community is something that has driven him to create this blog. Keith is a member of NCKA (Norcal Kayak Anglers Association) since 2008. He primarily fishes salt water but will fish freshwater in the winter time.
His favorite fish is halibut despite it’s reputation for being dry. His nemesis fish is the California white sturgeon which “had” eluded him for over 5 years. He doesn’t claim to be an expert. In fact, he is just a guy that likes to fish on a kayak.
Jon Le (Crazyfisher)
Jon’s passion for the Kayak fishing starting in 2015 when he purchased his first kayak, a Hobie outback. Jon’s passion for kayak fish extends both to salt water and freshwater, but he is a striped bass specialist.
During the summer you can find Jon chasing Lingcod, Rockfish, Halibut, Salmon and large pelagic fish in the big blue. The winter months are dedicated to chasing down massive strip bass in the delta system and San Luis Reservoir area. Jon’s largest fish is a delta white sturgeon caught from his kayak in 2017.
During his free time Jon enjoys flying his drone, bowling, golfing and
playing with Rocky.
