For several years, we have organized a series of kayak fishing tournaments on local waters around the Phoenix area, and 2020 is no exception! Each tourney event offers cash and gift prizes for the top places, along with a nice wall plaque. AGAIN FOR 2020 - ENTRANTS QUALIFY FOR A NEW HOBIE OUTBACK! And here's the kicker - still no entry fee! Search for us on Eventbrite to sign up for the next one coming up.We've designed these events as a get-out-and-have-some-fun with other anglers that share your passion for kayak fishing, without any financial risk. There's usually some camping the night before, and fun hanging around afterwards. Bring family members so they can join in - it's all good. It's a great way to meet other anglers, see how others have their kayaks rigged up, and learn what to cast based on conditions, time of day and time of year. All of the tourney rules and more details are best found on our main tournament page on this web site.For 2020, here's the schedule:
