Meet Dustin Nichols, Kayak Angler Solutions Prostaff

Dustin Nichols, Kayak Angler Solutions ProStaff

Dustin honed his skills as a young angler in Southeast Georgia chasing bass in farm ponds and saltwater species in the diverse inshore waters of the Golden Isles. Fishing was a major part of his early life and after his enlistment in the USMC he found himself in Texas enjoying the coastal access and wade fishing. It was the ease of access and extended range a kayak would offer that led him into the plastic boat! His love for competing from surfing and skateboarding quickly branched over to fishing, were he enjoys the challenges and camaraderie the events bring.

Dustin is an avid outdoor writer and the Communications Director for the Kayak Saltwater Series as well as the South region team manager for Jackson Kayak. He is looking forward to the growth of the sport and enjoys helping new anglers jump into the kayaking craze!
