FORMAT: Hook, line legal. Any legal hook and line fishing method. Any lure. Any bait. No cast nets.

Live baits?

I'd hoped I wouldn't have to do this. I saw the slow signup and decided to give it until Oct 1st. There's less than 10 people committed so it appears there is little to no interest in keeping this series alive. This date is cancelled.

If any of you have any ideas on what needs to be done to keep the longest running kayak fishing tournament series in the world alive, speak up. Take the reins if you want. I'm open to any suggestion.

So sad, I just received my October schedule and found I would be in town for the event and then traveling the last 12 or so days of the month, so I was ready to sign up.

I spoke with Rik at the gym the other day and could sense his disappointment. I have only been involved with the PFTS and the web site for what I consider a short period of time compared to the veterans that are here. But I have come to enjoy and anticipate the fellowship, camaraderie and fun at the various PFTS. Notice that I didn't mention fishing? Well that is because to me it wasn't all about that. The fishing was a bonus.

It has become needed therapy with me, so much so that my wife asked a couple of weeks ago when the PFTS was starting back up. Even she noticed my anticipation.

So it was really disappointing when I heard that it was cancelled, but even more so the lack of response or concern that has been posted.

Thanks to all that have worked hard in the past....Rik, Todd, Haywood and many others.......

I just saw this post. I am truly disappointed as well. I had a lot of fun fishing this series and meeting everyone involved. I hope this is just a hiccup and we can get this series back on track!

How about a direct to email announcement/ reminder instead of people remembering to visit the site? I'm a member of an archery club and when they send the email reminder for events they get a much larger turnout.

Glad to hear I didn't miss it, but not so glad to hear it was cancelled. Hope to make a few events this year if work will cooperate.

Sorry to hear about the cancellation. As for myself, I just got a new left hip and doc says I need the other one next year so I guess I'm out for awhile. gonna put the kayak up for sale and get a new one when I'm repaired!

Hoping to hear of more tournaments this year as it has been a highlight for me meeting you all these past few years.

Stay well y'all!

PBR, direct email to members is a great idea.
