New for 2018!

PRO Kayak Fishing has brought you the Estero Kayak Challenge since 2015, raising over $9000 for Heroes on the Water. This year we are upping the ante and are excited to announce the creation of the California Saltwater Kayak Series! The only statewide, saltwater kayak series. Cal-Salt combines all the best of an online tournament along with traditional, “in-person” tournaments happening up and down the state. It all culminates at a Tournament of Champions at the end of the year.

Our dedicated tournament staff has been working hard to create a tournament series that is competitive, fair, and most importantly fun! With monthly awards, special points bonuses, a variety of qualifier events, and some awesome gear from our tournament sponsors, there is something for everyone! Checkout the Cal-Salt section for all the details.

What happened to the Estero Kayak Challenge?

Don’t worry, it’s still around. In fact, if you don’t want to compete in the whole series but still want to attend the Estero Kayak Challenge, no problem! The tournament is remaining the same, with the same format and structure as in years past. The only difference now is that it has also become a Cal-Salt qualifying event for the Tournament of Champions. That’s it! Head over to the Estero Kayak Challenge section for more info.

Cal-Salt Partners:

We wouldn’t be where we are if it wasn’t for the friends and relationships we have built in the kayak fishing world. We value those relationships, so when we first came up with the idea for Cal-Salt we wanted to find a way to work with our friends and continue to support each other, our events, and our charitable causes. We came up with the idea of partnering with already established, saltwater tournaments throughout the state and using their results as qualifying events for the Cal-Salt Tournament of Champions.

We have partnered with groups, tournament directors, and companies that have the same values and goals that we do. To promote paddle sports, kayak fishing, and the outdoors in a safe, ethical, and responsible manner. Be sure to checkout our partners and support these great organizations.
