ACK’s Chris Hackerd made a surprise visit to the Lake Travis KATS event on March 24th to interview a few unsuspecting participants. Check out this video we recently posted and expect more from our next event!
Speaking of great causes (read previous post), I had the pleasure of attending the first CORE Health Foundation’s ADA Wheelchair Accessible Fishing Pier Committee Meeting last week. The CORE Health Foundation is in the process of raising approximately $400,000 in donations to build a wheelchair accessible fishing pier on Lady Bird Lake (formerly Town Lake) in downtown Austin.
The 2012 KATS Lake Fayette tournament took place this last Saturday. It was the second of 6 events in the series and was a great success!
Hey! How about a quick shout out to all those competing in the 2012 Kayak Angler’s Tournament Series Lake Fayette event this Saturday.
The first tournament of the Kayak Angler Tournament Series (KATS) took place on Lake Bastrop this past weekend and was a huge success! Just fewer than 60 anglers (some from as far as Del Rio, TX) competed on a very windy and chilly day!
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.
Each February, while most folks are still in a deep sleep comfortably under cozy warm covers, there is a unique group of anglers preparing to launch an armada of plastic boats into misty cold waters in anticipation and hope of catching the big ones. I imagine a small handful of these guys are wondering, “what am I getting myself into” but I also imagine that when they get that first bite, the adrenalin kicks into full gear and it’s game on with no turning back!
A few months back I made a challenge to our blog readers to get out of their comfort zone and try participating in an event that they might not do very well in but that they would enjoy. For example, triathlons, mountain biking, adventure races, canoe and kayak races or even a fishing tournament.
