As the year winds down, there are still plenty of opportunities for discovering fun kayak tournaments to fish in Virginia. To help make sure you get yourself out on the water before the real chill sets in, listed below are an array of kayak fishing tournaments to consider taking part in over the coming months. Whether you are a seasoned pro or an enthusiastic first-timer, these events should scratch that itch to get out in your kayak and do some serious fishing before the winter doldrums arrive.
On September 26th, the Tidewater Kayak Angler’s Association will host this year’s rendition of their annual charitable event at the Lake Wright Conference Center in Norfolk. With a hefty batch of sponsors, the “Fish for Charity” competition should be an ideal occasion for some top quality fishing. All sorts of folk come out to fish for a good cause, with proceeds being raised for the organizations Heroes on the Water and Project Healing Waters. Winners are chosen in different divisions based on the length of the species of fish caught (with no double-dipping). If you’re interested in taking part, be sure to register soon as the the $65 entrance fee jumps to $80 on September 14th.
Although their well-known and highly-regarded Yakattack Tournament has come and gone, the Southern Blue Ridge Kayak Anglers will still be hosting a few more events before the season’s end. The next will be held bright and early on September 26th at Snowden Rocky Row Run on the James River. Their final scheduled contest of the year will take place at Smith Mountain Lake on October 24th. Both events should provide a more relaxed setting for kayak fishing, yet still provide a healthy dose of competition for good measure.
On October 3rd and 4th, Extreme Bass Anglerz will hold their Classic at Smith Mountain Lake. Looking to end the year with a bang, this one should not be missed. Entry into the tournament requires membership with the Extreme Bass Anglerz, but with a variety of events throughout the year, joining may be well-worth your while. Prizes are modest, however the atmosphere is top-notch. If you’re in the market for a solid group to do your kayak fishing with, be sure to check out the Extreme Bass Anglerz Classic.
