The 2010 ACK Fishing Challenge has come to a close and the results are in! It was a great success with over 40 anglers of all ages participating. We would like to thank all of our sponsors and of course the participants for being a part of this annual event — we couldn’t have done it without you.
Overall, it was a beautiful day on Lady Bird Lake with mild temperatures and partly cloudy skies. Anglers anxiously arrived by 6am Sunday morning and launched into the water to begin their attempt at a 1st place finish in each of their respective divisions. ACK Store Managers, Justin Fees (Tournament Director) and Doug Kain, along with Office Manager, Amy Leggett, were there to assist anglers at the launch and weigh-in.
And without further ado, CONGRATULATIONS to all the winning anglers! While this list may be focused on the top placing anglers, everyone walked away a winner with raffle prizes and giveaways from Ocean Kayak, Scotty, Skwoosh, GSI Outdoors, Astral, Kokatat, Werner, Malone, S3 Cases, Bending Branches, NRS, Talic, Pelican, Feel Free and Paddlers Supply. Every participant also received a goodie bag with an ACK Fishing Challenge t-shirt and sticker, Get Give fishing lures and the latest copy of Lone Star Outdoor News.
