I have been fishing as long as I can remember. I started kayak fishing because it was a fast and affordable way to get on the water while I was in college. Like most people getting into the sport, my first kayak was a recreational sit inside kayak. The more I fished in the kayak the more I fell in love with the sport. Nowadays I feel out of place when not fishing out of a kayak. I found out about a kayak club having tournaments in my area in 2013 and I was very enthused. Fishing in tournaments is more than just a competition it’s about having fun, spending time with friends and meeting new friends.
