The Gate City Classic

Multi-Lake Kayak Fishing Tournament

September 30th, 2017

Hi everyone, and get ready for the Gate City Classic! As many of you know, the Classic is when we celebrate our season with fishing and food and announce the AOY. A number of prizes, qualifications and details are also determined on this final day of the regular season. They include:

  • AOY winner. The CKA Angler of the Year wins a Jackson Cuda HD, Yak Attack Black Pak, a Bending Branches paddle and a $500 Get:Outdoors gift certificate
  • Five KBF National Championship slots,
  • The kayak raffle winner (every angler has one entry for each tournament he or she fished). If you fished even a single event this season, you could win a Native Slayer Propel 13!
  • The final standings for the top 25 anglers who will proceed to the Tournament of Champions of October .
  • Location selection for the Tournament of Champions. The lake is drawn after the Classic and Final standings are announced.

This is a multi-lake event. All details are below:

    1. Hi Doyle,
      Sorry for the delayed reply, but the staff was all out of town in the past few days. No, the Gate City Classic is open to everyone. The top 25 will compete in October.
      We hope you will fish the classic – it’s a great end of season event!

  1. Just curious what I would have to do to be able to fish with you guys in these tournaments? I’ve been fishing for years and would love to get in the tournament fishing starting next year probably, thanks I live in the High Point area

    1. Hi Marc, CKA directors were all out of town, so we apologize for the delay. CKA is not a “club” so there is no membership required. Furthermore, while we are a KBF affiliate, you do not have to be a KBF member to fish CKA events. In sum, you sign up for an event on Tourneyx, pay the registration fee, show up and fish! If you are interested in meeting folks, we will all be at Get Outdoors in Greensboro after the Gate City Classic on Sept 30, where all the anglers check in and we wrap up our regular season. Even if you don;t fish, stop by and check things out!
      best regards, the CKA staff.
