Mike McKinstry
Bassquatch Hunter -Kayak Fishing
Feb. 16-18 & 23-25

Seminar Topics:

  1. How to set up your fishing kayak – Setting up your kayak for a successful day on the water. The do’s and dont’s of kayak rigging.
  2. How to start a brand and go from YouTube to TV – Forming a brand identity and taking the jump from a YouTube channel to a TV show. Tips that I have learned along my journey from my YouTube channel beginnings to being the first regional Emmy nominated fishing show and airing on the Discovery Channel.

Mike McKinstry began fishing at an early age, but only started to take it more seriously in 2010. In 2016 he transitioned to a kayak from a bass boat when he realized kayaks could go more places and became a full time professional fisherman! Mike’s excitement catapulted him to start a YouTube channel, then quit his 13-year career in Marketing to start his TV Show “Bassquatch Hunter”.

Mike is excited to Inspire, Motivate and Educate our audiences! You won’t want to miss these fun seminars!
