On October 4th, 2017, some of Texas’ top kayak anglers came together to participate in the Kayak Angler’s Tournament Series on Sam Rayburn. Check out this photo blog of the action that took place during the tournament!
We had a great 2017 KATS season, with over 350 total anglers and a record breaking 166 anglers at our first event, we were looking forward to a competitive championship. For this years KATS Classic Championship we return to our two day format, with the top 25 anglers competing for two consecutive days, that were individually scored to give us our champion.
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.
This year we kicked off our Junior Angler of the Year program thanks to a wonderful anonymous KATS angler that donated a fully-rigged fishing kayak! We chatted with our first ever winner Kayden Drake about all things fishing, from early memories to mentorship, to get a better picture of the guy behind the title.
So you’re looking to get into Kayak Fishing? There are some essentials you will need. You’ll obviously need your kayak, paddle and safety gear, but there are other small items needed to make the fishing experience more enjoyable.
Bass fishing in the summer can be one of the hardest times of the year to catch fish. The conditions are mostly bluebird skies, light wind, and high heat, which means that the fish are going to be found deep, or in the shade trying to escape the heat in cooler water.
The first Friday of each month, Old Town’s Facebook releases a new video discussing a different topic. In May’s video, Keith covers how to catch monster bass during the spawn and top tackle recommendations. Go ahead and give the Old Town FB page a like if you haven’t already, and follow along!
Here’s a blog by ACK San Antonio Store Associate Brice Mayfield documenting his experience fishing Ingram Lake, about two hours west of Austin, Texas.
Here at ACK, now more than ever, we take kayak fishing gear very seriously and we know that you do too, that’s why we’ve put together a comprehensive list of what we believe are this year’s best tools. We hope it takes you out on the water and leads you to your biggest and best catches yet. Peruse the list and click the links for more information on any item of your choice.
