North America Kayak Wars
« on: April 11, 2016, 06:01:51 am »
As of this morning it looks like the Canadian teams have been bumped into North American waters. And Caribbean/Europe and Australia only left in International ranking.

Not sure what the reasoning is there.   I may be currently up there in the standings, but it is only a fluke really because of the crazy early spring that I have been able to get out at all.   Last year at this time I'd still be waiting to get my kayak wet for the first time.    I don't know about those of you in central Canada, but out here in Eastern Canada, there is no way we can compete with most of the regions in the U.S.

That being said, there is no way they can do it to make everyone happy.

Last year there was a team standing list for North American freshwater.

Would like to see that again.

Your right there is no way to make everyone happy? Its been fun to compete against only Canadian guys ;D I think they are probably looking at it as North American to stop the issue with the cross boarder fishing Canada/U.S.A . this will make some of us happy?
Good luck this year everyone

We can definitely compete with American's on team fresh water standings. Last year our team came 2nd in that regard.

Have to wait and see how the prizes are going to all work.

Canada is just under the North America title headings instead of International. Its says absolutely nothing about not still being Canada area(s) at this time. So they will probably just split into 3 areas  possibly next year for us. West/Central/East like the states do. Our laws/seasons and amount of lines all differ from our counterparts across the border. After all we are Canadians/not Americans.

Shame about the records, it's a mess now...my 20"Cutthroat is now a small rainbow?? from the states, my 27"Burbot record is a nice American carp, and my 19" Brook trout record is a 14?"  Brookie from the states.

I am sure they plan on fixing the records(that is if they know they are messed up now).

That is the problem with trying to set things up and adjust things mid season. There are always going to be hiccups and just takes time to sort them all out.

Yep mid season fixups, no biggie. Nice to see some new sponsers on site also. Eager for the new monthly /weekend contests theve talked about also. Plenty of oddball ways to make them fun.

They got rid of ties.
See a new channel cat record caught on the weekend at the OKFS event on the Grand.
Guess buddy doesn't want a lure ( or is unaware of us ).  :D ( Not the  best pic. anyhow)

I finally got out and on the board.  :)
