MOUNTAIN HOME – The first annual Kayak Attack on Hunger fishing tournament will be held May 9 at the Cranfield Recreation Area and campground on Lake Norfork near Mountain Home. All of the proceeds from the non-motorized, catch-photo-release tournament will go to the Mountain Home Mercy Mall, a non-profit organization that provides food, clothing, and personal care items to families in need at no cost.
Prizes will be given for first, second, and third place. Early entry fee is $35 per angler, $45 the day of the tournament. The optional Big Bass pot is $5 per angler—angler with the largest bass takes all. There will be gift bags for all anglers registering before May 1. In addition to the fishing tournament there will be kayak demos, door prizes, seminars, and other family activities.
Tournament sponsors include Jewel Baits, Wapsi Fly, Inc., Town & Country Grocery, Harps Foods, Ozark Mountain Trading Company, The Outdoorzman, and Underbite Custom Tackle. Online entry is available at www.eventbrite.com
