Name is Matt. Was born and raised in NJ. YAKCHUM has been his screen screen name since 1998. He is an unemployed Architectural Draftsman and Designer. I have been fishing since he was 5 years old.
mattflukeMatt was 1st mate on his pops fishing boat for over 15 years. He owned and operated his own 20' Wellcraft power boat for 5 years. Once he sold his boat he needed a new way to go fishing and decided in the winter of 2009 – 2010 to go purchase a kayak and use it as he new fishing platform. In april he purchased his first kayak used Perception Caster 12.5. Over the past season he has fished a wide variety of targets ranging from freshwater large mouth bass to summer fl9ounder (fluke). Also rigging his kayak as the pros have rigged theirs suiting his preferences. Matt looks forward as being a pro staffer for ECKF and shareing his knowledge and experiances with the team and fellow kayakers.

His other hobbies include: Target shooting firearms, Roller hockey, and Audio Production
