A few words from the AOYs

NWA Angler of the Year Dwain Batey:

I had a blast this season, and while having a great season and winning Angler of the Year was great, the personal relationships in kayak fishing are the real rewards that matter to me. I have made and continue to make wonderful friends within the community. 

I was very fortunate with the weather conditions letting me take advantage of my favorite technique, throwing the Skirmish Baits M9 square bill crank bait, which put key fish in the boat all year long except for the roadrunner event which was exclusively a jig bite for me. I look forward to the State Championship, and next years season with the NSKA.

River Valley AOY Christa Hibbs:

I have had a blast this 2017 season. It has been great meeting new people and fishing with friends that share this love of fishing as much as I do. My favorite tournaments this season were on Beaver Lake and The King of the String. Thank you to all the sponsors that support the NSKA, and thank you to our tournament director Jeff Malott. Your countless amount of hours and effort is very appreciated and does not go unnoticed. See everyone at the Arkansas State Championship!
