Tony Hart – Editor in Chief
Yak Outlaws was founded by Tony Hart, an avid kayak angler for over 10 years.

Tony has years of experience in the kayak fishing industry, and has served as the Pro Staff Coordinator for such companies as Malibu Kayaks and Feel free Kayaks, where he worked diligently to build up successful kayak fishing teams. Tony has also been involved in the media aspect of kayak fishing as a writer for several fishing publications to include, Coastal Angler Magazine, The Milkcrate Magazine, and Fishing Connection of NE Florida. Tony also served as the East Coast Editor of Kayak Fishing Magazine. As a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, Tony used that passion to co-found and also serve as the Assistant Coordinator for the NE Florida Chapter for Heroes on the Water, and still helps with tournaments sponsoring Veteran’s organizations. Tony also spends quality time in the kayak with his wife and 2 sons, Garrett & Gavin, sharing his passions with them of the sport of kayak fishing. Tony and his wife, Kaycee, take family outings together to share with their sons the passion for being outdoors and in the kayaks. Tony is currently on the Pro Staff for Okuma Fishing USA, Savage Gear, Bending Branches, Daiichi Hook, and Bimini Bay Outfitters.
Kaycee Hart – Owner
Kaycee and Tony have been a kayak fishing duo since the beginning. They started out kayak fishing in small 10′ sit in kayaks and fell in love with the simple ability of just loading up the kayaks and heading somewhere to fish for the weekend. Kaycee has worked with some of the largest brands in the fishing industry, and is also the co-director of the Inshore Xtreme Challenge charity kayak fishing tournament. Kaycee spends as much time as possible on the water, whether it be SUP angling, fishing from her kayak, or simply from the beach.
