Shearon Harris CKA/KBF Trail Event

CKA Tournament 5

KBF Trail Event

Shearon Harris Lake, NC

June 9th, 2017

Overview

Welcome anglers to event #5 of the 2018 CKA tournament season. The tournament will be held on June 9th at Shearon Harris Lake. This is our yearly visit to world renowned Shearon Harris and it is our first time hosting a KBF Trail on the lake. The tournament will be a multi-launch event using the two available public ramps at the lake.

The event will be held in conjunction with a KBF Trail Event.  Anglers may fish either the CKA and KBF event separately, or fish both events simultaneously. The CKA event is a 3 fish limit event and the KBF Trail event is a 5-fish limit event, but an angler’s 3 CKA fish can be cross-posted to the KBF event on Tourney X. Additionally, non-KBF members can compete in the KBF event but we encourage anglers to sign up as KBF members.

AOY standings update

Hello everyone and thanks again to all of the anglers who recently fished with us at Hyco.  

We are posting the CKA AOY update file (see below) so that everyone can have a look at the official standings after one event. Given that qualifying spots are at stake for KBF Nationals (our Top 5 get a ticket) and the Tournament of Champions (top 15), it is important that the numbers be correct. Double check the list against the event standings on TourneyX. If you think you see an error, contact CKA Tournament Director Wayne Butler. Note also that the (R) designation next to a name indicates a 1st year angler.

As it stands, Bob Dainton has punched a ticket to the Tournament of Champions because he won 1st place at Hyco. Bob is a local kayak fishing pioneer and a CKA regular. Congratulations Bob!

The rest of the field is wide open this early on so prepare for our event on Lake Hickory on March 31st, get signed up and fish hard to gain ground or reinforce your position.

It’s a long season and now is the time to grind and stack points!

Setting up your TourneyX account and Submitting Catch Photos

Hi everyone,

CKA will continue to use Tourney X to judge tournament photographs for the 2018 season.  This is a great website and very easy to use. Consulting with kayak anglers year round, TourneyX continually improves its functions. There are a few changes to be aware of on the site/app. These include:

  • Option to upload fish to multiple events at once
  • Select CKA as the club you represent (you can find the list under “Clubs” in the main menu)

If you are a new angler, practice using the site, and even if you are a veteran angler please familiarize yourself with the new features. Please review the information below. If there are still questions, ask CKA staff (or join the TourneyX group on Facebook).

What is it?

TourneyX is a website and app (the app is free) for live check in of fish caught in Catch-Photo-Release (CPR) tournaments. You can download the app or save the home page to your phone for easy access. Anglers catch a fish, take a photo of it on their board (with ID) and upload it to the site for live scoring.

What does it cost and what are the benefits?
