VIDEO: 2017 9th Annual YakAttack Tournament: John "Toast" Oast

Posted by Video from John "Toast" Oast of Fishyaker.com on


Long time YakAttack team member and Virginia native John “Toast” Oast of Fishyaker.com and his daughter, Lila Oast, made their way from Pennsylvania for the 2017 9th Annual YakAttack Tournament for a weekend of camping, hanging with old friends, and kayak fishing the great fisheries Virginia has to offer. John has been fishing the trophy bass lakes of central Virginia for about 15 years and this marks his 7th YakAttack Tournament. The YakAttack Tournament is very different from most and focuses more on the fun, food, and fundraising for Heroes on the Water and Project Healing Waters rather than just the competitive kayak fishing aspect making this one of John's must attend yearly tournaments. In the video below John depicts a great play by play of the whole event.
