Team X-treme, a different kind of competition

There are a lot of kayak fishing competitions springing up around the country. Online and live events for specific species are probably the most popular. Team X-treme has come up with a unique concept that gets anglers out of their "comfort zone" making them fish for the longest fish from a variety of species. There are other multi-species events out there but this one gives the casual angler a better chance to compete.

The competition is free to join and is set up to be fun for everyone involved. Sponsor prizes and trophies will be given away to challenge winners.

The format centers around the Species Eliminator, anglers compete in challenges throughout out the year and race to knock off all of the species listed below. They receive a point for each species they check off the list and additional points for the longest fish in a particular category.
