I know this topic has been brought up before.
http://texasfishingforum.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/5861385/Kayak_Clubs
I'd like to see if we can revisit it from a little different perspective. Please try to stay on topic and be civil.

What are your thoughts on a general kayak fishing club?
General in that we are not species, brand, tackle, or water body specific. Anyone can join. No dues. We have a monthly meeting and have guest speakers from tackle manufacturers, rod builders, kayak manufacturers, guide services, and so on. We could have multi-species tournaments or specific species tournaments. We also work out a club discount program where we can buy items related to kayak fishing through our club affiliation.

I know we have a kayak bass fishing club in the N Texas area already and this is in no way designed to take anything away from that organization. We have a number of folks that are not bass fishermen and I think it would be cool to see the cat fishermen, hybrid fishermen, and the rough fishermen getting together with the bass fishermen to help grow the sport we all share.

Ideas? Questions? Concerns? Let's hear them. coach

Sounds like a great idea to me.

We could also have regular lake get-togethers to go out and fish and give newer guys (like myself) pointers at what we are doing wrong and why we can't catch fish wink (in a constructive way, of course)

I think there should be an Independant Kayak Fishing Club, made up of guys/gals that don't join clubs...and don't promote bombshell turtles. rolfmao


A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

I think this is a great idea.

I think on the bass tournaments specifically there are already too many competing circuits. I think it would be more fun for all if the tournaments were unified and we had bigger turnouts.

I thing the idea of the $40 / $20 divisions that was discussed earlier seemed to resonate with a lot of people.

The idea is statewide, so I'm thinking regions?

This sounds really interesting Jerry, not being brand or species specific is a really good idea, it puts all of us on a level playing field and kinda takes away certain stigmas associated with kayak fisherman, especially when people start pointing fingers at others for there particular tastes in brands. I am totally in for this, I would love to learn anything I can about fishing in general and fishing from a plastic boat.

I would join a kayak fishing club if it had a really good private lake...
