This P.A.C.K. Event would not have happened without the fine support from trusted suppliers and stores like ACK, YakGear, Serious Tackle, REI, Grind, Academy @ Bunker Hill, Bass Pro, and many more that support the kayak fishing community. Stop in and chat with with these folks and tell them "thank you".
The PACK Tourney staff that helped keep it all together, Ken Jennings, Blaine Tamplain and John Staigerwald, appreciate you guys!! Blaine, breakfast burritos, nice touch! The tournament committee that started meeting in May to get the ball rolling: Eli Rivera, Ken, Blaine, Brad Valtierra, Michael Emshoff, Michael Smalley*, and Blake Colburn. You said we could do it and we did!
Of course there's no tournament without you, our P.A.C.K. Members. And major gratitude to our newest members who joined PACK in the last 3-4 months. Welcome aboard!
Slam Winner: New member Gerald "Stew" Stewart 7.37-lbs All winners and weights can be found in the attached photo. Last week we added a new category in honor of our 21st Year: Blackjack Red. Winner - Bruce Berhens (get this) 20-7/8" Red.
Brad and Bruce fried fish, members brought side items (always so good).
* Hats off to Michael Smalley for devising the weigh-in spreadsheet. It made life livable. Finally, thanks to Kevin and his crew at the San LuisPass Park, the scale and ruler!!! How great was that??
