KBF Regional Challenges
One Night Stands the final Friday of each month from April through October. Mother’s Day and Father’s Day Challenges. Back to School(ing Bass) Challenge in August. Black (Bass) Friday Challenge.

Why is kayak fishing the fastest-growing segment of the sportfishing market? Is kayak bass fishing healthier for anglers as well as the ecosystem? Does kayak angling practice better stewardship of our natural resources? Do the economics of kayak fishing allow more anglers to escape the shore? Do they encourage bass boat anglers to rediscover the pure, simple enjoyment of fishing without breaking the bank? Yes, yes, yes, and yes.
