Welcome to the 2019 Kayak Bass Fishing Tournament!
This friendly tournament is aimed to help ages 10-16 get outside and have fun. Participants should be ready to begin the tournament by 9am, and therefore should arrive by 8:30 if they have their own kayak, or 8:45 if they need to borrow one of ours. All equipment can be borrowed from us if given advanced notice. This includes a kayak, PFD, paddle, and fishing pole. Participants are of course welcome to supply all of their own equipment as well.
This event does require a smartphone which we recommend placing in a waterproof case or bag. Sunscreen, sunglasses, a hat, and a shirt with SPF is also recommended.
