2014 NB Kayak Tournaments
« on: February 16, 2014, 08:03:22 pm »
Hey guys,

The organizers of both the NB Paddler Tourny and the Hammond River Classic stepped down after last year so I'm taking a turn this year in making these great events happen.    I'm happy to say that Paul at Eco-Logicial Adventures has agreed to continue his generous support in donating a kayak for each event to be given away via a random draw.   

Currently I'm in the sponsor hunt and things are moving along well in that regard with help from some of the other veteran's of the kayak angling world.

The website for both events is at http://www.nbfishingderbies.com.  Be sure to check it out.    Comments, suggestions, help, and of course any sponsors you may be able to dig up on our behalf is greatly appreciated!

On a side note, in case others aren't aware, there are a couple of other kayak oriented tournaments in NB in June as well.    A Shad Tournament in Chipman/Salmon River on June 7, and the 'Fishing for Memories' pickerel tournament in Hampstead on June 28.

Having participated in the NB Paddlers derby I can personally confirm how great of a spot this is for fishing, and kayaking overall.  NO better place around that I personally know of to target that many different types of fish...  And the people are fantastic.

Organize a car pool with the other folk there in your area that want to come... I'm sure there will be at least a few again this year!   If bringing kayaks turns into an issue for transportation, I'm working on getting a deal with OutdoorsNB to supply kayaks for rentals at a reduced price.     If they have the new Predator in stock, I'll likely be renting that myself to try out and having my own kayak out there for someone to borrow should they need one.

I usually don't know my work schedule ahead of time so it makes it hard to plan outings...definitely be there if not working..

I probably don't need to announce that I'm in for the derby again this year.

Bob, fancy another trip to Hartt's Lake on the Sunday morning?

If they're going to be having the Monte Farrell Shad Tourney in Chipman this year, it would be fun to have a crew of us show up. It's always a fun tourney as well, when the weather cooperates, that is. I think it's usually around the first week in June.
