Joe Falco, owner of Sportsman’s Outfitter and Marine, became the new Jackson Kayak dealer for the greater Lee’s Summit area in the last year. As a result, he wanted to become more involved in the sport and has since helped with the resurgence of the Mo-Kan series, which is led directly by Jason Griffith.
There will be Jackson Kayak demos at the majority of these tournaments and lots of prizes. In the future, there will be a tournament on Lake Jacomo, a popular bass fishing lake in Lee’s Summit.
