Team Ocean Kayak participated in the 4th leg of the Third Coast Kayak Seriesheld in Corpus Christi, Texas. Team Ocean Kayak enters this event currently in 1stPlace for Team of the Year and 1st Place for Angler of the Year. Team OceanKayak’s Jeff Herman placed 2nd in the trout division and Captain Filip Spencerplaced 3rd in the redfish division, and alternate Rick Spillman placed 1st in thetrout division. Points accumulated in this event kept Team Ocean Kayak in 1st Placefor both Angler and Team of the Year honors.

The day started out windy and raining, with many of the competitors dodgingthunderstorms all morning long. Also in town was the IFA redfish series, a professionalpowerboat tournament. This put a lot of pressure on the bay complex andmade for a crowded day on the water, and displaced many of our fish on tournamentday.

A bonus for the day, alternate Rick Spillman caught a 19” flounder which wonthe team a catered meal for the next captain’s meeting held in October. VincentRinando also caught the smallest redfish for a nice pair of Costa Del Mar sunglassesand fell just 1/8” short of catching the smallest trout as well. The Third CoastKayak series also awards prizes for the smallest redfish and trout caught on tournamentday. The smallest redfish wins a pair of Costa Del Mar sunglasses and thesmallest trout wins a Kistler custom fishing rod.Team Ocean Kayak hopes to complete this series on October 17, winning boththe Angler of the Year and Team of the Year title for a repeat performance of 2008.
