Proudly rep the premier NC Kayak Fishing Tournament Series with the new CKA embroidered trucker hats!
Carolina Kayak Anglers promotes kayak fishing in the form of competitive tournaments, partnership with kayak fishing industry sponsors and charitable events that assist military veterans and active duty U.S. Armed Forces personnel. Founded in 2013, Carolina Kayak Anglers, or CKA as it is popularly known, has organized dozens of kayak fishing events in North Carolina. In doing so it has transformed the state’s kayak fishing community into one of the largest and most successful kayak fishing scenes in the United States. As a leading ambassador of a rapidly growing sport, CKA upholds its core values of fair competition, good sportsmanship and responsible outdoor recreation for anglers and paddlers.
CKA’s primary competitive tournament series holds 9 annual tournaments from February-October of every year in which the target is black bass species. No membership is required to attend and fish in CKA events – anglers simply register on TourneyX, pay a tournament registration fee and fish. Anglers compete for cash prizes and other rewards at 8 regular season individual events. In addition, Angler of the Year (AOY) points are awarded, the sum of which determine the AOY at CKA’s final annual competition, the Gate City Classic, in September of every calendar year. Hosted by Get: Outdoors, the Gate City Classic also determines the location of the Tournament of Champions event in October of every year, where the top anglers in the series face off in a single, unique tournament. CKA also hosts occasional team events.
