The date is Sept. 29, 2012 and the tournament headquarters will be in the Tidewater area of Virginia. (Norfolk, Virginia Beach, etc)
As in years past, the tournament will support two charities, both of which use kayak fishing and fishing related activities to help rehabilitate wounded war veterans.

Last year, through the generous donations of our sponsors and the great support of the participants, we drew a record number of anglers (240), a record number of veteran-participants (25), and raised a record amount (over $10,000) which went directly to our charities.
As in past year’s, this year’s tournament will feature a slam and several species divisions (redfish, speckled trout, flounder, striper, and largemouth bass) as well as divisions for youth and female anglers.
Once again, Hobie Kayaks has agreed to be the anchor sponsor with a grand prize for the slam division being a Hobie Pro Angler kayak, valued at over $2500.
Other major sponsors from 2011 included Appomattox River Company, Tar River Paddle Sports, Yak Attack, Kokatat, KayakBassFishing.com, Wilderness Systems, Wild River Outfitters, NuCanoe, Yak-Gear, Malibu Kayaks, Hogy Lures, Old Dominion Kayaks, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and many more. We have some new major sponsors that will be announced in the future, so stay tuned to this website and/or our Facebook updates to see who else is on board. See the tournament page link below for more details.
Great prizes and raffle items will be available. Early registration includes a tournament t-shirt, awards ceremony meal, and raffle ticket. (bonus raffle ticket for paid TKAA members) The first 125 paid entries receive a Hobie Kayak captain’s bag with lots of great items.
