Online kayak fishing tournament happening through June

By  | 

(WRDW/WAGT) -- If you like kayak fishing then don’t miss out on a tournament happening all month long.

Kevin Fox, tournament director for the CSRA Kayak Bass Assasins, started the local tournament trail a few years back.

“CSRA Kayak Bass Assassins was born out of a want for a local community”, says Fox.
The group is hosting a public online catch, photo, release tournament throughout the month of June. Anglers submit pictures to the Facebook Group of their five biggest fish using one of the certified measuring boards.

“There are 3 devices that are allowed. That is the Hawg Trough by Hagan’s, The Fish Stick by Yak Gear, and The Ketch Board”, added Fox.

Anglers wanting to fish the tournament must sign up by Monday, June 10th.
Half of the proceeds collected for the tournament will go towards a local cause.

Fox said, “50% of the $20 buy in actually goes to Heroes on the Water, which is a nonprofit organization that takes veterans, first responders, law enforcement out on the water kayaking and kayak fishing”.

Here are the details about the tournament from the CSRA Kayak Bass Assassin Page:
