Who Can Say No to a Little Kayak Fishing for a Good Cause?
ACKer’s Chris Hackerd, Andrew Moczygemba & Brock Nedland have set course for Port Aransas today with plans to tackle some coastal fishing in the Casting for a Cause Fishing Tournament that starts tomorrow (June, 28th). The volunteer-driven event has grown to become the premier charitable fishing event in the Coastal Bend of Texas and last year had 160 kayak anglers participate out of a total of 500 anglers.
Always looking for a way we can give back, ACK is proud to be a sponsor this year and is donating a Feel Free Moken 12.5. Proceeds from this event benefit amazing charities such as Heroes on the Water(HOW), the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as well as several other local charities.
Kayak Fishing Takes Strategic Preparation
Forming Team Austin Kayak, the guys have put all hands in; working together to come up with a strategy for this event. After reading over the Hook-n-Line fishing maps for the area and consulting with fellow kayak anglers who have experience in these waters like Fil Spencer (who ironically will most likely be fishing in the tournament as well), they’ve got the best fishing spots mapped out and ready to go.
Plus with ACK’s own kayak fishing gear-head, Jerron Wosel, giving them tips and equipment suggestions, they are locked and loaded with some sweet gear like the Engel Live Bait Cooler and the brand new Predator 13 Kayak from Old Town.
Wish them good luck! We’ll keep you posted with the results.
