CKA Update: Randleman Lake Tournament/KBF Trail event

Hello everyone, this is an update about CKA preparations for the next event on July 8th at Randleman Lake. Like the event we held earlier this season at Falls Lake, this will be be a 2 tournament event, with parallel competitions. One event will be CKA Tournament #6 and the other will be a KBF Trail event  (anglers can register for one or both). As before, there will be additional prizes and the KBF Trail event guarantees $1,000 for 1st place if at least 30 anglers participate. And also as before, we expect a big crowd of anglers from around the region and country.

We are currently tending to logistics and will communicate additional details in the coming days. A few early points for those planning travel:

a) The Friday night (July 7) Captains Meeting will be held at Get:Outdoors in Greensboro, N.C.

b) This will be a multi-launch event, with the lake’s two launches available to anglers.

c) Sign up for the Trail event is already available on Tourneyx. CKA event sign up will be available soon!

We will post complete details in the coming days, as well as CKA AOY updates, photo gallery updates, etc.

Sincerely,

Larry, Wayne, Henry and Cory

CKA 2017 AOY update

Hello everyone, and thanks again to all of the anglers who fished at Lake Hickory this past weekend, as well as our sponsors for their generosity. This is a quick post to inform you we have updated the Angler of the Year standings through 4 events (Norman, Falls, Jordan and Hickory). With 4 events remaining in the season there is plenty of room for earning points and gaining ground for the top spot, the top 5 (who qualify for KBF National Championship) and the Top 25.

The current AOY file can be found at this link: http://www.carolinakayakanglers.com/?page_id=2223

We look forward to seeing everyone at Lake Badin on June 3rd!

 

CKA Tournament 5: Lake Badin

CKA Event #5

Lake Badin, NC

June 3, 2017

 

CKA welcomes Anglers to Event #5 on Badin Lake (last visited by us in 2014). It’s the Southernmost Lake on the Yadkin/Pee-Dee river chain and one of the oldest impounded lakes in North Carolina.

Badin contains 5,350 surface acres of water, 115 miles of shoreline, and an average depth of 90 feet with a maximum depth of 190 feet. This diverse fishery hosts all three major Black Bass species (Largemouth bass, Smallmouth bass, and Spotted Bass) as well as Striped Bass and Walleye.  With its deep structure, rocky islands, grassy shorelines, flats, points and boat docks, there will be ample opportunity for every style of fishing.

This will be a single launch event from the Badin Public Access and Swimming area. The area is in a small park, just north of the boat launch at the southern end of the lake. Anglers will also check back into this same area at the conclusion of the event.

There are four events remaining (not including the October Top 25 event)…… The AOY standings remain very competitive. Remember that CKA takes the angler’s best six event finishes for the season towards your AOY points, so there is still a great opportunity to work towards both AOY and the top 25.

CKA Tournament #3: Jordan Lake Multi-Launch

CKA Event #3

B. Everett Jordan Lake, NC

April 8, 2017

The CKA is pleased to announce a multi-launch format for event #3 on Jordan Lake. We invite all kayak bass anglers to join us on the entire Jordan Lake Recreation Area for this  event!

About the lake: Jordan Lake is fed by several large, fish-filled tributaries, primarily from the Haw River to the west and New Hope Creek from the northeast. Standing timber, channels and flats form much of the lake’s north and middle sections while the Haw River channel, steep banks and islands shape the lake’s lower half. Jordan challenges anglers at times but the lake has been producing excellent size and numbers so far this season. This event will positively contrast our early season event at the lake two years ago, when the snow and flooding subdued the bite. By all reports high lake levels have improved fishing since the winter floods of 2015 and 2016. In sum, fishing at Jordan Lake is excellent right now and this event will be a great one!

Date: April 8, 2017

Sign Up: 5:15am–6:00am (Captains Meeting to Immediately Follow) @Ebenezer Launch Area. Anglers then depart for their launch locations.

Lines In:     6:45am
