It reminds me of "Where's the beef?" 
If you think the name "burger" is cool, don't forget a big piece of BEEF. That's what makes a burger.

... except for veggie burgers, a term now in common usage.  ;D

Their angler of the year definitely doesn't count canoe fish, and their first classic they weren't too keen on canoes either, and it was a fun exchange when they anointed themselves record keepers for Canadian "kayak" angling. 

If they let in canoes now for their Border Classic, great.

Always have allowed canoes here is the rule from the 2011 BCC.
7. Fishing must be done from a watercraft which is human powered the entire duration of the tournament. This watercraft must launch from the designated launch areas each day. The watercraft must meet or exceed all federal and provincial watercraft safety regulations. All participants must wear a personal floatation de-vice (PFD) while on the water at all times.

The rules for the AOTY are not clear as to what is allowed.  It says Human Powered kayaks including motors and sails.  I am pretty sure that includes canoes, Hybrids, and SUPs, as long as they are solo.

I haven't checked back in a season or two, but they definitely didn't count canoe fish for AOTY or kayak fishing records.  Mostly jealousy I think, I caught more salmon in one night than they did at their Moucha Bay get together.   :-*

Dunno about the Classic now, I stopped giving a frack.

Wonders how many laughs  and beers Jeff has had reading this.  :P

Oh he got right prissy the first time I dare suggested that a canoe was faster than a Hobie! 
Turns quicker too.
And reverse isn't that tricky.
Can fit a bigger cooler too.

Sorry, please excuse the off topic question.  Is there a BCC event this year?  Is it just a one day event?

Back to your original post....

   If there is still a need for a "what is a kayak" thread we should start a "what is a kayak" thread. This is/was the "are canoes allowed in the derby" thread. We have severely derailed from the original question. (myself included)
   

And this is why I split this portion from the initial thread.  Which I now realize doesn't belong in the Native forum and is now in the off topic forum.

Cabin fever has truly set in....

So... Should we take the fact that you moved this to 'off-topic' not 'kayak fishing' as a sign?

Lol

Sry, couldn't resist

In a thread that mentions Ultimate's AND canoes...on a kayak site that isn't really about kayaks...OMFG!

The "other" Canadian kayak fishing site doesn't allow canoes either, for their angler of the year contest nor their Classic tourney.  But most of the US ones (i.e. Kayak Wars) do.

Joco, you are correct it will be very difficult to find an event that does not allow Canoes, but it was already said that the OKFS does not and Belly is correct that it is Jeff's choice to make it that way.  I still think the canak (dilli's canoe) should be considered a kayak.  The name canak pretty much says it all.  It is as much a kayak as the Hybrids are.

Michigan is an area that does not have a lot of Hobie Kayaks.  It isn't because they are rejected but because of the lack of support to the sport of Kayak Fishing from the Hobie Dealers in Michigan.  Don't forget Hobie was first a surf board company then it was the Hobiecat that made them famous.  A lot of dealers  that carried Hobiecat for years aren't interested in sponsoring a fishing team member and growing the sport of kayak fishing.  They sell sailboats and don't care.  It is their loss.  The company I am working has sold boats for over 50 years and in there 1st year selling Hobie, 85% of their kayaks sold were for fishing, not recreation.   There are other pockets in North America like Michigan.  I don't know who said that Hobie isn't big down south, in Florida they are very popular, as are all brands of kayaks.
