The article claims I said “It’s practically impossible to troll well if you’re paddling.”  I don't know where they got that from.  I've seen LoletaEric's videos and know how well he does paddling.

If that was my quote it would have read: 

This broken ass fisherman uses a hobie because he is unable to effectively paddle let alone troll for salmon.  Yet there are some that manage it very well.
