Tigers, Tuplips, and Tackle

It doesn't get much better around here than opening day for the Detroit Tigers. Add to that tulips, crocus, Hyacinth's and daffodils beginning to peak through the soil, must mean spring has arrived.
 Another sure sign is the second annual No-Mo Kayak Fishing Tournament set for May 14. This years event-a benefit tournament- will be to help support Make-A-Wish Foundation.
   Last year there were nearly 30 entries. Not bad for the first year. This year we hope to have 50 anglers participate.
   First place is a brand new Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120 kayak. Other prizes include a $100 gift certificate to Hook 1, a kayak fishing gear and supply company, kayak fishing products to rig a kayak and others.
   Anglers entered will be eligible to buy raffle tickets good for a quality rod/reel combo, a one year complimentary subscription to Woods N' Water News, Kevin VanDam autographed caps, Pro in-line weight system from Off Shore Tackle, and other prizes.
   Scales and Tales cartoonist Bill McElroy is donating a one-of-a-kind 'toon for the event. For entry forms and details visit or call Riverside Kayak Connection, tournament headquarters at (734) 285-2925.
   Dust your kayak off, grab a pfd and a current fishing license, pay your entry fee, then fish any water in Wayne and Monroe Counties that has public access. You just might win that new Tarpon. But you won't have a chance unless you try. Good luck and we'll see you on the water.
