For its second year, ACK hosted KATS (Kayak Angler Tournament Series) in the Austin, Texas area. Competitors from all over Central Texas and beyond gathered at 6 events beginning in January and finishing up Saturday, September 7th at Inks Lake State Park for the Classic Championship.
The qualifying 2013 Kayak Angler Tournament Series season was buttoned up at Canyon Lake in May and the Classic Championship looms on the horizon for the Top 20 anglers! Five qualifying events, a whole lot of fun, and some excellent kayak fishing made for a great season in ACK’s second annual hosting of the series.
Lake Fayette is a favorite destination for anglers all over Texas (and sometimes the world) and is even one of the destinations picked out for ACK’s Kayak Angler Tournament Series. Well, I came across a video from Bobby Clark, a Wilderness Systems Pro Staff angler, fishing Fayette in his Wilderness Systems Ride 115 and I have to say that I was impressed.
ACK’s very own Kristian Kolflat, Austin Store Assistant Manager and KATS Tournament Director, was interviewed by Pat Kellner of FishTattoo. In the interview, Kristian speaks on ACK, KATS and kayak fishing in terms of both the industry itself as well as his own passion for the sport.
