Just a quick note that on August 11th we are planning to host the 2nd annual Kayak Fishing Fun Day. The format will be very much like last years event but will also have a few new innovative ideas incorporated. Complete details will be posted soon but plan now to attend


Just for a general point of reference, here is the link to the thread on last years event:

This sounds like a good day out on the water. I like the omission of powered boats as my aluminum row boat is pretty darn un maneuverable on big water and therefore at quite the disadvantage usually.

I think I'll be able to make it to this event!

This sounds like a blast to me ! I've just invested in my first Kayak and can't wait to get out and see what it's like. I hope to at least put one trip in on grand before the tourny so i have some what of an idea where the fish are hiding.. Anyways didn't mean to highjack the thread, I hope to make it out to this event !!

Is the W.A.D.R.A launch area a public launch ? I plan on fishing grand tomorrow and as it is my first time, i don't know where to launch from ! Is it off of Alben Ln ??

Also any update on the tourny ?? I sail monday and might not get the chance to check for updates until the 10th.

Thanks,
Mike

If I read the rules correctly you do not have to limit your fishing to Grand Lake.. I wonder how many will actually leave the area to fish elsewhere and then return before check in time..I am surpired this has been changed from last years rules.. was this change due to the # that tied for first last year
