At the end of last season, long time CKA angler Denny Romero approached us with an idea: he wanted to reward CKA anglers who consistently compete in events. His motive was simple: through their tournament entry fees, those anglers have raised the lion’s share of the money that CKA donates to Heroes on the Water every season. And so to reward them, he decided to build a custom kayak trailer. Scroll down our Facebook page, and you will see some of his photo updates of the trailer’s construction. As many people know, Denny’s engineering and craftsmanship are second to none; he is also a kayak angler, so he knows exactly what anglers need from a trailer.

One of CKA’s core principals is to support independent and local businesses. In 2015, Thomasville, North Carolina based Boonedox donated a T-Bone prize package to our Tournament of Champions event on the Yadkin River. In the years since, CKA and Boonedox crossed paths and continued to work together on occasion. 2019 marks the beginning of a new era: Boonedox has become an official sponsor of CKA and has generously donated giveaway prizes to each event and to the AOY prize package. And there is more….
CKA’s 3rd event of the year will run parallel with Boonedox Yadkin Slam, the annual multi-species charity kayak fishing tournament. Scheduled for May 4th at High Rock Lake, CKA will award a spot in the Tournament of Champions to the Yadkin Slam angler who lands the largest bass of the Slam’s bass category. With food, prizes and a great charity component, this is going to be a great event. And finally – at that event, Boonedox will announce the prize it will award to the 2019 CKA Angler of the Year.
CKA works with its sponsors to grow the sport of kayak fishing and to support local businesses and anglers. We are proud to work with Boonedox and we ask all our anglers to support this partnership!
