So, we wrapped up this year's Kayak Tourney series today at Norton Reservoir. The day started calm and cool with the wind picking up considerably a few hours into the proceedings. Priority one was locating the duck hunters as the sun came up and staying out of their line of fire! Again it was good to see some new participants one of whom finished in the money. First and second went to the father son duo of Ken and Paul. Good job guys. Ken wielded his trusty spinnerbait for a nice limit on a tough day. For those of us who didn't make out so well I suppose we realized things could have been worse after seeing the poor guy who shredded the front end of his SUV while trying to launch his Ranger! Thanks to everyone who participated this year and special thanks to those who stepped up to keep things running smoothly when I couldn't attend.
First kayak tourney for me, and this res, good group of guys, and I enjoyed the outing. Fishing was slow, ended up with a couple small bass, and a couple small picks. Biggest was 1.01,barely legal! Maybe have another before December?
Tom, thanks again for hosting this event. I enjoyed the day out on the water even though I had nothing to weigh in at the end of the day. Nothing but small little ones were caught. Congrats to 1st, 2nd & 3rd place. Weather was great too. The duck hunters weren't to happy with us out in water, they didn't have a good day but, the guy that ripped the entire front end of his Jeep off had a even worse day.
Enjoyed the time, looking forward to being out there next year.
Thank you Tom I had an excellent time at each tourney and you did a bang up job,can't wait til next season! Thank you Ken for running the couple that you ran! I had a lot of fun fishing with you guys(and gal) it was great too meet some new yak anglers!
The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
