Bass-A-Yak postponed

The Cenla Kayak Anglers first-ever "Bass-A-Yak" tournament scheduled for this Saturday, April 2nd at Black Lake near Campti has been postponed to a later date TBD.

Here's the 4-1-1... the Great Flood of 2016 (the 2nd one) inundated both marinas near Highway 9 bridge, the bridge itself, and many of the houses, camps, and docks along the lake.  Just this past week, they opened up the bridge. I called Chandlers today and found out the marina is still closed and the boat launches are closed and the lake is a no wake zone, but she's not sure if boats can even be launched.

At our April 5th meeting, we'll discuss alternative dates and/or locations as this event had a great deal of interest.

CPR Challenge starts tomorrow!

The Cenla Kayak Anglers first-ever CPR Challenge begins at midnight Wednesday, March 16 and continues through November 30th.  The CPR Challenge is a months-long catch-photo-release tournament in which members fish at their leisure.  When a member catches a worthy largemouth bass, crappie, or redfish - or a largemouth bass on fly rod - they have the opportunity to submit that catch for prizes.  All that the member needs to have with them is (1) a digital camera (2) a store-bought fish measuring board and (3) the CPR Challenge token.  Take a picture with the fish on the measuring board, nose up against the "bump board" with mouth closed.  Make sure the token is in the photo as well.  Then later send in the photo(s) along with a CPR Entry Form for each submitted catch.

Best part?  It's FREE to CKA members.  And with the Bonus Drawing, you don't need to finish on the leaderboard to be a winner!

For more details, including rules and restrictions, go to the CPR Challenge page.  Our Forums also includes rules, as well as Token and Entry Forms.  Since the CPR Challenge is in the members-only section of the forum, you'll need to register on the forum.  It's quick and easy, and you'll be able to post questions, fishing reports, and classifieds.
