The Gadsden area’s Coosa River Kayak Anglers have released their 2017 schedule. Note that the majority of the events have 5PM start times and are on week nights. This is actually a nice change up for a lot of anglers. They will also host a few regular weekend events that start at safe light. Check their Facebook Group page for more information, details, rules, and more.
The Iron City Kayak Anglers have released their 2017 kayak fishing schedule. They’ll be fishing a lot of lakes in the central Alabama region. As with most of the other kayak bass fishing clubs in Alabama, they will have an “Angler of the Year” for their club and top finishers on the trail will qualify for the State Champion title to be awarded at the Alabama Kayak Fishing Classic in October.
