Nominations are in for the second annual Kayak Angler’s Choice Awards, the only user driver kayak fishing awards. This year there were double the number of people and products nominated and the competition is looking stiff.

The Kayak Angler’s Choice Awards were created in 2011 as a collaborative effort between YakAngler.com and KayakFishingRadio.com to find “the peoples choice” in a variety of kayak fishing-related categories. That was the first time anyone had attempted to rally the kayak community across the nation to nominate award winners.

"I’m extremely excited to see how the kayak fishing community votes this year," said Adam Hayes, co-owner of YakAnger.com

“We had two different kayaks stand out ICAST and Outdoor Retailer this year - the Hobie “Mirage Pro Angler 12” and Native Watercraft “Slayer”. It will be interesting to see what the kayak fishing community thinks is the best kayak!” said Mark Watanabe, co-owner of YakAngler.com

Chip Gibson, owner of KayakFishingRadio.com, added, “I think it's great that we get to find out what the kayak anglers are thinking about their gear, the kayaks and each other! It's their choice.”

The survey was live for several weeks to collect nominations for various categories. Now nominations have closed, and voting will begin on September 10, 2012 and end on October 10, 2012. To place your vote visit: http://www.yakangler.com/choice
