The 2013 Kayak Angler’s Choice Awards are in the books. This year we decided to implement a new elimination format that really helped to prevent voter dilution and kept things exciting. Participation was almost double 2012; over 9700 unique votes were cast during the three rounds of voting.

Participation spread in 2013. The Awards are quickly growing to become an international kayak fishing community event, with votes and nominations coming in from fifteen other countries. Three categories (Tournament, Online Tournament, and Guide) were removed, and Paddle was added.
