  About WAKA  
  The Western Arkansas Arkansas Kayak Anglers (WAKA) is a non-profit kayak fishing club who holds tournament fishing competitions in both Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma. Members are of all ages and skill and during our first year in 2015 we had over 60 unique competitors attend our 7 tournaments. This year, we have 8 scheduled tournaments starting in March. WAKA has no membership fees and very light tournament entry fees of 20$ with an optional 5$ big bass pot. All tournaments are 100% payout and with all the great sponsors that have came forward, most everyone takes home something through prize drawings.  
     
  WAKA is not only a competive fishing club, but also a commuity of anglers that share a passion for fishing from a kayak. With over 600 on our facebook page it is common for individuals to post when they are going out fishing and inviting others to join in on the fun. Unlike some of the more competitive big boat tournaments, you will find that people are willing to share information and help teach new techniques.  Family camping and cookouts are common year around and especially on tournament weekends. Several members are also active in charity functions such as Heroes on the Water for our wounded warriors and Team Pink fishing which supports breast cancer awareness.
