Georgia Kayak Fishing Charlie Elliott Pond Hop 2016
We’d like to thank everyone who came out to Charlie Elliott Pond Hop 2016!
We had some new faces and some young anglers turn out to compete and hang out. Some folks camped out the night before and a good time was had by all. For being a mothers day weekend we still had a solid attendance! Member Tony Trobaugh caught his personal best which put him in top contention. Not competing Nik Jett caught a nice carp on the fly! The conversation before the captins meeting went as one would expect from a pond hop, “which pond you fishin”? Some of the more seasoned guys headed straight for Fox and stayed there all day. It paid off because the majority of the top 5 fished Fox. Others found quality fish on Bennett but failed to find a full 3 fish stringer there and had to HOP around looking for second and third fish to close out the day. The weather was sunny and slightly windy with steady 5-10’s with 15-20 gust.
Special Thanks to Joshua Thomas and the Vibe Kayak crew for donating some nice gift cards and paddles for the raffle. YakAddicts Everett Park and Shane Williams for attending and blessing anglers with shirts hats and swag. Southern Moon Outfitters showed the love once again this year at a GKF event with some nice shirts and swag as well. Every single person who competed and stayed for the weight in took home some Kayak fishing gear! How awesome.
