I have had several questions about immersion gear, radios etc. so I want to be perfectly clear about this... You are all responsible for your own safety. This is a dangerous sport and you must be appropriately prepared for any situation.


Registration is still open but we are past the clothing deadline so you would not get a free t-shirt

All registrations must be completed by Sept. 7th at midnight to receive a tournament t-shirt.
All clothing orders must also be completed by Sept. 7th at midnight.

We are past the clothing deadline so no t-shirt, sorry

The theme of the tournament is simplicity... old school kayak fishing. Nothin' fancy, just the angler and his/her gear, testing their skills.

 To that end I am gonna level the playing field by limiting each angler to one rod and reel and four lures (provided), everybody fishes the same lures, no bait, no scents.  No mechanized propulsion systems, no sails, no fish finders, no GPS, just a kayak, a paddle, a fishing rod, landing gear and safety equipment. This years raffle will benefit our own Amos Foreman. As many of you already know SuperVato aka Amos was injured a few months ago by a falling I-beam. Those of you who know will surely know that Amos is pretty tough and not likely to feel sorry for himself. As such it may not be apparent that he has been unable to work since the injury. After a bit of arm twisting he agreed to be the raffle beneficiary on the condition that he not "profit" from it, i.e., he will only accept enough to replace what he has actually lost. Of course I agreed and I asked him to chose a charity to receive any overage. He has chosen the Brain Injury Network. The Brain Injury Network (BIN) is the first brain-injury-survivor-operated, international and USA national, Survivor of Acquired Brain Injury (ABI), nonprofit, advocacy organization. (Founded 1998.) This nonprofit organization is for and by the brain injury survivor community.

Feel free to PM me or post on this thread if you have something you'd like to donate to the raffle.

Woohoo! Once again The Headwaters Kayak Shop has stepped up as the headlining sponsor
and once again they are keeping it simple buy offering a
$500 cash prize for the heaviest lingcod.

YeeeHaaaw! our favorite lure sponsors from previous years have agreed to support our tournament yet again.

So let's hear it for LaWanna and Kelly Schulz of

And big thanks to Craig Davis/Ravensblack and Pete Wolf of

And you guessed it our very own Andres Davis/Andy1976 will be providing the irons


Let's hear it for Mike Lavoie/Wingshooter owner of

and let's not forget Jeff and Donald of


Tournament central is at group site one just like last year. Camping is $26 per night, per vehicle, but unfortunately they do not take reservations for individual campsites.

I think that's the last weekend of archery deer season.  If I don't punch a tag before then its hunt solo or fish with ncka.  I'd probably miss again anyway so count me in.
