I posted a little while ago about Aaron Kerchner winning the NoMo Tournament a little while ago. Since then I have had the chance to talk to him a little more about the fishing and what he did to get his win. First off, he showed me a link to a short article about the tournament in Kayak Angler Online, click that link to read the article.
The tournament took place at Union Reservoir, a 736 square acre body of water located near Longmont, Colorado. The small size of the reservoir made it an ideal fit for the hand powered craft used in the tournament (NoMo stands for No Motor). Aaron said that the relatively featureless bottom of the reservoir led to several key pieces of structure coming into play as the contests made their way to where the fish would be.
