We just heard from Corbin Kench, one of the founders of the Central Michigan Kayak Fishing Club, and he filled us in on all the details of their first tournament of the year at the Gull Lake Marina.
Despite almost 25 people backing out at the last minute due to an ugly weather forecast, they had a total of 39 anglers fishing the tournament, and as it turned out the, the majority of the weather missed them anyway!
The anglers were competing for cash and a variety of other prizes, and with SeaDek as an Event Sponsor, there was plenty of sweet SeaDek gear on the prize table.
When it was all said and done, the top three winners were:
1st Place – Neil Vande Biezen $780
2nd Place – Jacob Kissling $306
3rd Place – Bryan Keeley – $156
But best of all the guys raised $300 for the St. Judes Children’s Hospital from all the raffle items donated by sponsors—including SeaDek!
They caught some great fish and had a blast, with mild weather and only about an hour of light rain. After such a success, they are already looking forward to their next event and aiming to attract 75 anglers. Great job, guys!
