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.

*** Sign up ends sharply at 5:45am, we will not be able to accommodate late anglers***
