End of Year Kick'n Bass Update

Written by Rich Bay - Published on December 14, 2022

A BIG Thank You to all my customers and friends!!

From the deck of the Kick’n Bass Pontoon

At the end of October, KnB stopped taking trips out and did some fun fishing and of course raking leaves…LOTS OF LEAVES! We have finished up preparing for our next adventure!!

What adventure you might ask?

I was offered a job with to guide on one of their pontoons for Crappie and Bass in FLORIDA. Yep, going on the road January thru the beginning of March.

This is a great opportunity to expand the business and to do what I love very much... help others catch fish. I will be fishing Lake Toho and the surrounding lakes!

To see how I've been led my whole life is summed up in this next sentence or two. Diane and I decided to buy a small camper. On the way home, the former owner of SteelShad Blade Baits, Steve Niemoeller, called me and asked if I’d be interested in a job for the winter.

Of course I had to think about it... for 2 seconds... and said yes! Diane will visit and I'll have my 5 month old girl pup named Gypsy along with me.

I know my mother and father are cheering me on from heaven, but I'd love to have one more chance to talk to them and say “Just 5 more minutes!!” - something I always said as a kid when fishing with my family.

I will still be fishing Kentucky and Barkley Lakes. I am taking reservations for trips starting my season End of March. So no worries on booking reservations for my home lakes in 2023. Fishing is picking way up on the North end of the lakes area and the Kick’n Bass pontoon will be ready!!


This attaboy is from me. Thank you, Mom and Dad, for taking us to Kentucky Lake for family vacations!!! Thank you also to my lifelong wife and best friend Diane.

You nudged gently and firmly in the way to go. Also thanks to Randy and Martha Kuhens and of course Steve Niemoeller. I promise to make us all proud!!
