The weekend of July 19th I had the opportunity to fish the Bethany Wine Scholarship Fund Tournament. Bethany was a young lady that unfortunately passed away last year from a rare form of cancer.
The ACK merchandising team spent last week at the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake City to check out the latest and greatest products as well as revisit others that remained tried and true. On day one of the show the team was invited to the Wilderness Systems booth to go over new products, review changes to current products, and best of all get a sneak peek of something very special, The Wilderness Systems Advanced Tactical Angler Kayak.
The 2014 ICAST Trade Show showcased a plethora of brand new kayaks that are a true advancement in the industry. Between Hobie’s Pro Angler 17T, Old Town’s Predator XL and Wilderness System’s Thresher 140, the innovation at this years ICAST was at an all time high.
Meet Big Names of Kayak Fishing at ACK Austin this Weekend I was scrolling through the list of representatives that we have coming to our ACK Austin store this weekend for Demo Days when I realized how many awesome people we have coming together for this event. If you’re a local Austin paddlers who is looking to further your kayak fishing knowledge and skills, you won’t want to miss this event.
Wilderness Systems pro-staffer Bobby Clark knows how to make kayak fishing look good! Check it out as he hits up a private Mississippi Bass lake for a little kayak fishing in his Commander 140 where he not only came out with plenty of fish but caught some great footage as well.
Not too long ago Wilderness Systems announced that they’d be testing out some new kayak colors and eventually choosing their favorite(s) to add to production for the long term. The colors included three different camo colors and are available with the Ride 115, Pungo 120 and the Tarpon 120.
Not only is the Kayak Angler Tournament Series (KATS) a great place to kick back and enjoy the outdoors, fishing and camaraderie but it’s also a great place to learn from the experts in their field. Wilderness Systems representative Blake Bartlett took some time off from promoting his products at the Lake Bastrop event last weekend to talk to us about the unique features of the Wilderness Systems Commander which make it ideal for the fisherman or someone looking for a canoe / kayak hybrid as well as the 2013 Wilderness Systems Ride 115 / 135 with the new, upgraded AirPro seat.
