Default Kayak fishing tourneys?

A buddy of mine just became an ambassador for a certain inflatable kayak company, they are willing to pay for him to enter and dis in any kayak tournament in the area. My question to you guys is are there any upcoming tournaments for kayak fishing?

If you just want a big redfish to pull you around, kayaking off of Rutherford beach is a better bet.

Caminada Pass can have great bull red action, but August doesn't seem to be the best month.

I think the dates are chosen for attendance rather than the best fishing.

All of them off Rutherford. We've rocked Caminada pass a number of times, but fall and winter seem best.
