I'm incredibly honored to be nominated in the 2014 Kayak Angler's Choice Awards for the fourth year in a row. This year I was nominated in the Angler of the Year category, and I have to say the list is filled with some incredible kayak fishers, most of which I don't hold a candle to. Again to who ever nominated me, thank you.
Although this blog won the Best Kayak Fishing Blog category last year, it was not included this year due to a new rule requiring nine posts through September. As I've neglected you a bit this year while launching my new business in California, I only had six posts at the time of cut off. I'd like to think the focus at this blog is quality not quantity, but I also understand the need for the new rule. There's always next year!
I am very excited to see my shop Pacific Outfitters nominated for Best Kayak Fishing Retailer/Outfitter, and Trinidad, California; My personal playground and home to our saltwater kayak fishing tournament; Trinidad Rockfish Wars, nominated for Best Fishing Location.
