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 Kayak Fishing?
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. But to really understand kayak bass fishing’s exploding popularity, one has only to look at the faces of those engaged in this sport.
