Rigging Clinic

The first rigging clinic was at Ted's house in Gulf Breeze, FL. We were surprised at the turnout and rigged several kayaks that day. You see when the sport of kayak fishing started its popularity, kayak vendors did not make fishing models. We had to figure out how to install fishing rod holders, fish finders, and battery boxes.

With the start of the next new year we started holding our annual rigging clinic to help new kayak anglers add, modify, or remove items to/from their kayaks to aid them in the pursuit of the perfect fishing kayak.

We welcomed new comers to bring their yaks and any rigging projects they may have had. Take advantage of the experience of others. If your yak is fully rigged, you could bring it to show off. Seeing how others have rigged their yaks is half the fun.

Also, if you have yak gear to sell or swap, bring it and we could set up a barter station.

What we learned was these projects help sell mechandise,and so we teamed up with Academy Sports and Outdoors to hold the events at their facility, in exchange for their sponsorship to help support our Annual Tournament.

Location: ACADEMY on Davis Hwy, Pensacola, FL.
