That may be the most ignorant comment i’ve read on this thread. It doesn’t matter how expensive or big your boat is. Some of the most successful guys that fish this tourney are doing so in boats that cost less than most “fancy” fishing kayaks. This bass contest has been around since the mid to late 60’s and has always done well for turnout. Most of the people who fish this could care less about the “numbers”. Nor do they care about the money or turning a profit. This is a longtime running tourney for guys/gals to get out of the house, fish and have a great time. It has nothing to do with the Kayak fisherman, but more-so to do with the tradition and keeping the spirit of the old bass contest alive.
The Kayak fishing community is strong, I think it would be a great idea to start up a new tournament!
