ACK Demo Days is a unique experience for paddlers. Weather you are in the market for a new kayak, or just getting into the sport, it gives you the opportunity to try out the kayaks in the market and determine what is right for you, before you make a purchase.
ACK Fall Demo Days are right around the corner and we hope you plan to come spend the day with us! We’ve been hosting our demos for 10+ years and it’s always great to see everyone come and enjoy a day on the water.
Combining his best five events, with a grand total of 483 points, Guillermo Gonzales was crowned our 2017 Angler of the Year at the final KATS event in our regular season at Lake Travis. We caught up with him to chat about this season and what we can expect from him in the future in both fishing, and life.
Oskar Blues Brewery recently celebrated their 1 year anniversary here in North Austin, and we couldn’t be more grateful they came. While the brewery’s team has been great at quenching our employees’ particular thirst, they’ve also been great partners in the outdoor and fishing communities.
We are now in our 11th year of KATS, and the tournament series has come further than we ever could have expected, in largest part thanks to our amazing sponsors! <insert picture of sponsor banners from event> Most of our generous sponsors have been with us for many years and we have been more than happy to welcome them back with open arms.
Hunter Amidon is one of our youngest KATS Anglers, but also one of our most enthusiastic! Not only did he finish in the top 5 at our last event on Lake Travis, he also qualified for the National Student Angler Federation tournament in Florence, Alabama. We caught up with Hunter to see how he is preparing for the tournament and ask how KATS has helped him in his fishing career.
Give 5% to Mother Earth is an annual Austin environmental campaign that takes place on Earth Day where participating businesses pledge to donate 5% of their gross sales from that day to benefit local environmental non-profits. We are proud to report that we donated just over $1,000 to help preserve Austin’s green spaces!
Spring has sprung, and our KATS season is moving along full steam! As of now, we only have one regular season event left to fish before the championship this fall. We will be out on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas on June 10th. The championship will include the top 25 anglers from the regular season and put them to the test over a two-day tournament.
