EP:12 Your First Kayak Tournament
In this episode of the Bluegills to Bull Sharks Podcast I talked about competing in your first kayak tournament. I get asked a lot of questions about kayak tournament fishing. These range from "How do I know if I'm good enough to compete?" All the way to "How do they keep the fish alive all day?" I've answered all these questions by looking back at my own experiences. It wasn't that long ago that I was competing in my first tournament and I made a lot of mistakes. Hopefully this episode will help you have a better showing then I did when you sign up for your first event. I talked about prefishing, what to bring, using a Hawg Trough, and some basic participant etiquette during and after the event. The important thing to remember is that tournament fishing is a lot of fun! Testing yourself against the clock in a tournament setting is a great learning experience. However the best part of tournament fishing is the new friends you'll make while out on the water.
