Rookie of the Year update

Hi everyone,

We posted the updated ROY standings after 3 events. This race keeps shifting and it’s fun to watch all the new anglers (26!) battle for position. A lot can change because only your top 4 scores count, and anglers will begin replacing low scores after the next event at Kerr Scott on May 12th.

You can see the standings at this page:

April News: High Rock Photo Gallery and Assorted news

Hi everyone, and thanks to all the folks who attended CKA event 3 at High Rock! As always, we gathered and posted all the photos in our 2018 season gallery, which you can see at this link:

Since many of us are busy with the upcoming KBF/Boonedox event and the Get:Outdoors demo on Saturday, CKA will be quiet until next week.If you are in the market for a new kayak, or know someone who is, the demo is a great place to try a boat and find the best fit!

Upcoming posts will include, in no particular order:

1. Tournament sign up for event 4 at Scott Kerr Lake, the last of the new lakes for this season (Shearon Harris, Jordan and Macintosh are next after Scott Kerr!).

2. ROY and AOY updates

3. Announcement of prize packs for AOY and ROY (these are going to be awesome).

Thanks again, everyone!

Sincerely, the CKA staff


AOY and ROY Updates

Hi everyone, and thanks again to all who fished at Hickory. We have created new pages for the 2018 ROY and AOY standings. AOY and ROY charts with the top of the standings as well as pdf files of complete standings can be accessed at the links below. We will update them periodically.

The TD’s have noticed that the early AOY race is tighter than it has ever been in years past and there are many new names, as well as familiar names having great early season runs. The ROY race is also exceeding our expectations, and it is great to see so many new folks competing hard in the events. Additionally, it looks as though the new, expanded points system will create increased shifts in the standings as the race continues. In short, keep grinding!

We are grateful for everyone’s participation and we’ll see you all at High Rock this coming Saturday for the combined CKA/KBS event!
