Women's Only Kayak Bass Fishing Tournament sponsored by Mariner Sails

Lake Athens Marina and RV Park
5401 Marina Drive
Athens, TX 75752

Welcome to the original women's only kayak bass tournament. We started this event several years ago when several women brought it to our attention that no such event existed. This is a really fun day on the water for the women to show off their fishing skills.

This will be a money tournament with a 60/30/10 payout and a separate big bass pot.

There are RV sites available at the marina but unfortunately no tent sites at this time. Book your RV sites directly with the park at (903)675-7275 (be sure you mention the event when booking.


This will be a catch, photograph, release tournament using iAngler Tournament System.





$50 USD
Individual Angler


Processing fee of $1.75 USD will be added to the registration fee.
