A Kayak Kaddy and accessories valued at over $300 will be raffled! The Kayak Kaddy will be raffled off to all anglers who didn't win 1st place, 2nd place, or win big fish. It is the goal of the Trail to give all participants who attend a shot at prizes and not just those who take the top spots, so be sure to attend the measure-in even if you had a tough day locating fish!
Camping/Meet & Greet
Kiser Lake has 75+ campsites. There are ~10 campsites that offer electric. There are only about 5-10 campsites located directly on the lake (none of them have electric). Often times large groups of anglers will camp Friday night before the event as well as through the weekend.
The measure-in is also a good oppurtunity to meet & greet fellow kayak anglers of all skill levels and talk about our mutual love of kayak fishing.
Be sure to join the Buckeye Nation Kayak Anglers group on Facebook to see what anglers are planning for each event.
The Kiser Kayak Classic is always a popular Trail stop due to camping, location, and LILY PADS!
The Kiser Kayak Classic set a Trail record with over 60 anglers in attendance. The top 25 anglers all caught a three fish limit with several fish topping the 16" mark. In the end it was Amanda Jones and her 22.25" monster bass (pictured above) that earned the top spot.
In 2013 the tournament started off slow with only a few fish landed, and then right in the middle of the tournament a storm with high winds and hard rain pushed all the anglers off the lake. With about a hour and a half delay the bite picked up a bit, but in the end there were 28 anglers with only 12 able to catch a three fish limit. With the big fish of the tournament being a 19" bass caught by Neil Farley (picture below).
