PKFA Tunkhannock Kayak Fishing Jamboree Wrap-up

Yesterday we held our first charity kayak fishing tournament, benefiting the Tunkhannock River Day.  There were 18 entrants and a handful of family and friends.  The river was up a couple feet from its normal level this time of year, and was still a bit stained, but the conditions were still conducive to kayak fishing in this stretch of the North Branch of the Susquehanna River.  A good number of fish were landed, with PKFA/Suskie Bassmasters member Frank Patla leading the way into 1st place.

1st Place:  Frank Patla, 15 5/8″

2nd Place:  Frank Kratz, 15 1/4″

3rd Place:  Allen Davailus, 14 3/4″
