2017 Oak Creek Results

West Texas Kayak Fishing Oak Creek Tournament Results

Another big day out in West Texas Kayak Fishing tournament scene. Not only was the biggest fish ever caught in a WTKF tournament landed, but the largest 5 fish stringer was also turned in. The weather and wind were brutal, but anglers found a way to land some nice fish. We had 47 anglers show up to compete on what we all knew would be a windy cold front day. Thank you all for continuing to show up and fish for fun.

Congratulations to Corbin Craft for crushing the competition and winning by more than 10 inches and turning in the largest 5 fish stringer in WTKF history. He had a monster 24 inch bass that would have won big bass at almost any other event around the State (not just West Texas). Way to go Corbin! That was impressive from start to finish. Although he is no stranger to tournament Bass fishing I do believe this was Corbin’s first Kayak fishing tournament and we all know how taking pics of fish is almost as challenging as catching them sometimes. Throw in some nasty wind and it gets even more difficult.

And as you all have probably already seen congratulations to Jensen Phipps for landing a 25.75 swamp donkey of a bass. This was by far the largest fish ever landed at a WTKF event. Congratulations again to Jensen. If you are following the WTKF scene this is the second tournament in a row that a female angler landed Big Bass. Great job ladies.

Check back soon for AOY standings updates and pics that Megan Oldham took from the event. Thank you Megan they are awesome!

Here are the results in PDF format.

Congratulations to Lance Reynolds on out fishing 51 other anglers on what proved again to be a tough day at Alan Henry. He was able to land 3 fish for 50 inches and had one more that was not score-able due to fishes tail off the board in the picture. So he didn’t just win yesterday he won by a minimum of 12 inches. That is pretty impressive on a lake full of spotted bass around the 12 inch mark. Not only did he out fish everybody he also won the @MissleBaits prize pack of some awesome soft plastics. Congrats again Lance and hope to see you at Oak Creek (Facebook Event) in a couple weeks.

Congrats to the other anglers that were able to find a few fish. As it turns out 2 fish could have earned some $ yesterday. Here are the payouts and prizes awarded to the top 6 anglers and one lucky winner of the @Brady Packing Store – Post Texas $30 gift card. We sure hope @Russ Whitesides enjoyed some cold beverages after that long windy day on the water.
