Central Alabama’s Iron City Kayak Anglers will begin their 2017 tournament season in four weeks. In their sophomore year, the Birmingham-area club will host tournaments on the Coosa River chain and the Warrior River. Like last year, they will name an Angler of the Year again this season. Brian Wilkes was the 2016 ICKA AOTY edging out David Smith by a half-inch at the end of the season.
Also, ICKA will send their Top 10 anglers to the Alabama Classic later this year.
The 2017 ICKA kayak fishing tournament schedule is:
April 1 – Warrior River
May 6 – Neely Henry
June 24 – Lay Lake
Sept 9 – Logan Martin
Oct 7 – AOTY TBD
Oct 21 – Alabama Classic
Most of the ICKA schedule is on water that will be fished for the Coosa Riverkeeper’s Coosa Canoe and Kayak Fishing Tournament Trail meaning anglers should have more opportunities to improve their skills for one or the other events. We recommend you check out both clubs and get involved.
