Welcome to the New 2019 KATS website. Please pardon the dust.

Become a Sponsor

We would love to have you partner with us! Read below to learn more about being a sponsor and getting involved with KATS!!

Please contact Kristian Kolflat, kristian@austinkayak.com, for more information on becoming a KATS Sponsor.

KATS is the largest event of its kind with the best freshwater  and saltwater kayak anglers competing in a series of thirteen events (6 qualifiers, 1 Classic event and 1 Saltwater events for Texas and 3 events in Midwest). In 2016 KATS had over 250 unique anglers take part in the series with a total of 900 entries. In addition, www.fishkats.com has continued to grow and become a popular spot for competitors and other interested individuals to find information regarding the series and in 2016 we were able to produce, in partnership with Big Worm Productions, our second KATS Classic Film which can be viewed here.  The next one is slated to be released in early 2017. This year, we will continue to host the events throughout Texas.

Competitors enter this challenging competition for a chance to win one or more of the prestigious titles such as Kayak Angler of the YearKing of the Fish, and Classic Champion. Your generous donations and support are what make this series as successful as it is and allows us to provide attractive winning prize packages. Austin Canoe and Kayak (5-time Canoe & Kayak Retailer of the Year) will be hosting the event through fishkats.com and is inviting you to join us as a sponsor for direct exposure to Texas’ most dedicated freshwater kayak anglers.

In addition to KATS Texas, we are pleased to announce that in 2016 KATS headed to the Midwest area hosting 3 events. For more information, click here. We are seeking sponsors for this series as well, join us!
