2016 was the tenth year for KATS Texas, and it was one for the books!
Extreme Kayak Fishing Tournament April 24, 2015 – April 25 How did a couple of South Texas boys pull off a kayak fishing trip in the Bahamas? How in the world did you get your kayak across the US then across the North Atlantic Ocean?
Kayak Anglers from Team Ocean Kayak are Showing Power Boaters They Mean Business As the battle between kayak anglers and motorized boaters rages on, those of us on the kayaking side of things were awarded a recent victory when Clint Barghi and Aaron Stillwagon from Team Ocean Kayak took home not one, but two tournament victories in one day. The kicker?
There’s a lot of talk around the ACK offices and our stores about the Kayak Anglers Tournament Series (KATS) and if you aren’t an angler, that can leave you feeling a little left out at times. Case in point:
The third event of the KATS series took place this past Saturday at Pace Bend Park drawing over 50 anglers! The recent heavy rainfall made for a tough fishing day due to a “chocolate milk lake and blueberry sky” as one competitor Kevin Hebert described it.
My first kayak was a birthday gift given to me in response to a steep increase in my saltwater fishing interests. Since then, I have made it a priority to get down to the flats on the Texas Coast as often as I can.
It was a pleasure meeting up with TJ Greaney, Founder of the Kids Outdoor Zone, a youth ministry that provides mentorship and loving care to children through a variety of outdoor activities, to hand over a donation of just over a $1,000. We collected a portion of the proceeds through entry fees from the 2011 ACK Kayak Fishing Challenge back in October while Legacy Paddlesports, manufacturers of Native Watercraft and Liquid Logic Kayaks matched the donation.

The annual fishing event in central Texas for all kayak anglers. Join us for the 4th annual 2011 Kayak Fishing Challenge, an annual catch-and-release kayak-fishing event held on Lady Bird Lake in Austin, Texas benefiting the Kids Outdoor Zone.
ACK was invited to sponsor the Irish Water Dogs Invitational in Jacksonville, FL back in October, a catch, photo and release, kayak-fishing tournament and we gladly accepted. Aside from supporting the sport of kayak fishing, what drew us to this particular tournament was that all proceeds were going to the Wolfson Children’s Hospital.
