ACK JACK is 2!!!!
April Fools Baby Turns 2

Jack4I can't believe it has been 2 years since Peter used the birth of his first child to get out of the San Marcos Demo Days.  It was a very "convenient" way to stick me and Steve with all the work.  Never the less we decided to love the little guy even though he's gonna have a birthday party the weekend of the San Marcos demo that Uncle Steve (literal uncle) and Uncle Chris (figurative uncle) aren't even invited to because we have to handle Demo Days.  You would have thought he would have at least mailed us a mercy invitation.  I would have settled for an Evite!

Jack is the man though and he is being groomed now to ascend to the hierarchy of the ACK family one day.  But for now he's going be excited about presents, cake and the addition of his soon to be little sister, unless she arrives on his birthday, in which case he may be a bit grumpy.  Happy Birthday Jack!

Team ACK
Fishing and Racing Team Blogs

ACK sponsors several competitive teams throughout the year as a way to help these teams have successful seasons. 

The kayak fishing season has already kicked off and you can follow sponsored anglers in 3 different sections of Texas.  Team Redtide in Corpus Christi, Mike "yakfisherman" Bayer in Austin and team TKF in Houston. 

All 3 teams are dedicated to kayak fishing and love to get out and wet a line. 
Soon, we will be adding a couple of teams that will provide weekly updates on training for upcoming kayak races like the Colorado 100 and The Texas Water Safari. 
New Products From ACK
Adding Product Like It's Going Out Of Style
Steve has been adding tons of great products.  Too many to list in the new products section so take some time and check out all of the new items

Wilderness Systems Tarpon Slide Trax Dashboard and Side Mount Board
I have been waiting for these dashboards forever.  When I saw the trax on the new Wilderness Systems kayaks I just new they were gonna have something sweet.  I don't need to drill holes in my kayak if I don't want to.  I can drill into the boards and they are cheap enough that if I have drilled into them a hundred times I can replace them.  The boards also double as cutting boards and let me chop up live bite without putting slices in my yak.

Game OnKayak Fishing Game On DVD
Watching this video is like drinking 6 mountain dews in a row.  Kayak angler Jim Sammons runs around North America on a kayak fishing expedition that will make you want to search for Mobey Dick himself.  Who says you need snow and a sled to go for a ride, hook into a marlin and off you go. 


Humminbird 383c and 587ci Color Sonar/GPS Combo
The 383c and 587ci will be a lethal addition to the fish who thought they were hiding below.  These units offer excellent clarity for kayak anglers in a small package.  The GPS function is a great way to store up to 3,000 waypoints, 50 routes and 50 tracks. The transducer is available in thru hull/transom mount or with a transducer specifically made to fit the front right scupper hole of most Ocean Kayak brands.
