The Sperry Top-Sider College Kayak Fishing Championship


Come and Play in the Playground of the South

June 29th marks the first annual College Kayak Fishing Championship, sponsored by Sperry Top-Sider. Hundreds of college kayak anglers and their supporters will descend on the tidal creeks in Biloxi, Mississippi and paddle their way toward the goal of snagging the largest redfish, speckled trout, and flounder. At the end of the day, in a catch-measure-photo-release format, the anglers with the largest catches will win prizes including scholarships, kayaks, gear, and the biggest prize of them all, the 2013 College Kayak Fishing National Champion. Exciting times!

This event, hosted by Everything Kayak, is the realization of a dream of mine. My passion for kayak fishing started in college. The opportunity to share and grow that passion with a tournament like this is truly amazing, and the ability to offer scholarships to students to help them realize their dreams is incredible. I’m extremely honored to support an organization that gives college anglers a unique opportunity to pursue their passion, develop lifelong friendships, and enjoy a health-promoting sport.
