Guessing Hooters...But I don't know..

For anyone thinking about doing this tournament. DO IT!! Last years tournament was a lot of fun. Got to meet a bunch of kayakers, they gave away a TON of prizes, and it's Kayak fishing!

Just wished they would have picked a later date like May so the weather would be a little more stable and warmer.

The Captains meeting is going to be at Hooters on the beach Friday night the 23.

The club could not get Shoreline Park on the week end in May they wanted because it was already rented. So, they tried to pick the next best time with the right tides etc.

Also, there is so many tournments coming up they had to pick a day that would not conflict with others close by.

If you can't make the tournment, you can still buy a chance for the drawning to win a Hobie Pro Angler. That is a mighty fine boat.

I won the most spots last year and it was a blast fishing from my Hobie craft. I got to go out twice with Eric Holstman for some inshore redfishing and specks last October and November from winning the most spots on my redfish. Great time with him and his web site is www.ericholstman.com - redfish University if you want a good deal for 2010. I plan on getting my wife involved in this tournament and getting her a Hobie for her Birthday this month. So we plan on both getting in this tournament and enjoying every minute on the water. See all of you at Hooters on the beach April 23rd.

Kayak fishing is huge in the panhandle and the GCKFA Spring tourney is a great opportunity for all of us to show what a great fishery we have. Jacksonvillle brags about having the largest kayak tourney in the world. Its big and very well run. But the GCKFA is also well run and has tremendous potential for growth!The club has four years of experience under its belt. I know there are agood number of kayak anglers that mostly are on PFF and not the club website. Maybe a good number of these are not even members of the club. Doesn't matter! Lets show those guys from Jacksonville that we can turn out a crowd too! Its time to show the flag!

Stressless since you can not be here for the tournament, when the tickets go on sale for the Pro Angler, I will buy one for you in your name.

Thank you for your service.

I am so excited about us getting achance to win a Hobie Kayak for the Offshore division this year! This was possible because we had such a good turnout last year. Entrants went from 66 to 125! I think almost everyone took home some sort of prize thanks to so many donors, so make sure you register early to get your entry fee discount and bag of fishing stuff. :letsparty
