Hello everyone and thanks again to all of the anglers who recently fished at Lake Badin, as well as our sponsors for their generosity. CKA tournament attendance is up from last year and we are on track break our seasonal attendance record. A few numbers below, courtesy of Mr. Butler:
- 296 Anglers have fished in our 5 events to date
- 139 different people have fished at least one of our events in 2017
- 60 angler average per event
Once again, we thank everyone who competes with us to make CKA the most well-attended series in the state. These numbers would be even higher if some of our veteran anglers were not busy traveling to compete at KBF Trail events that have conflicted with our tournaments. The other side of that story is that we have welcomed many new kayak anglers to the series, and they have infused it with new talent.
We have updated the Angler of the Year standings through 5 events (Norman, Falls, Jordan, Hickory and Badin). With 3 events remaining in the season there is room for earning points and the battle for the top spot remains close. Also, there is room to qualify for the top 5 (who qualify for KBF National Championship) and the Top 25.
