Hayden Wiles

I’m currently a senior at Graham High School where I run Track, Cross Country and Indoor Track. Even though I love sports and running, I enjoy being out on the water fishing in my spare time. I got my start with kayak fishing in 2008 while in Boy Scouts. I enjoy both saltwater and freshwater fishing with Fort Fisher, NC and Oak Island, NC as my favorite saltwater locations. My favorite freshwater lake is Bugg’s Island Lake in VA. Currently, I’m a member of the North Carolina Kayak Fishing Association and participate in most of their events each year which includes their 9 month On-Line Tournament as well as other tournaments such as the Mid-Night Madness Catfish Tournament, Oak Island Classic and the Spots and Specks Tournament. Upon graduation from high school this June, I hope to continue my education in college and possibly pursue a career as a Wildlife Officer where I can continue to enjoy being in the woods or on the water in a kayak enjoying the outdoors.
