Minnesota Kayak Fishing Association


MNFKA is growing fast and getting exposure! Our board members have been working behind the scenes for you to build our association to be one of the BEST kayak fishing associations out there!

We’ve received GREAT news that involves more exposure! Board member Johnny Johnson has developed a relationship with Bill Sherck, co-host of Due North Outdoors and has made arrangements for them to join us June 19 – 20 , 2015 to film a kayak fishing show for both Due North Outdoors AND Minnesota Bound with Ron Schara!

I’m making a call out to ALL of you who are planning on fishing the Mankato Bass Classic to get signed up! Bill has expressed their desire to not only film some fishing from a kayak but to get the whole aspect of our kayak fishing community getting together…and this will involve them filming us setting up tents and campsites and filming all of us gathered around a campfire with ‘yaks nearby and talking kayak fishing shop talk! So if you want a chance to be on television on a GREAT show make sure you get signed up. The first people to sign up will have first call on the best camping spots we reserve for the event!

I’m super excited for this kind of exposure, it will get our name out there for all to see in our area and attract new members to join our awesome association! I Look forward to seeing ALL of you out there!

Early Bird Tournament Sign-UP

MN Kayak Fishing Member Signup LinkThe mission of the MNKFA is to facilitate information sharing and ways for kayak anglers to meet

What types of info will be shared? Reviews on equipment, fishing hot spots, bait, lures, species specific tips, tournaments, we want our users to create, debate and add conversations and content. As kayak fishing enthusiasts we share some unique differences that set us apart. We use a niche type of boat that is powered by human energy. We experience the water and fish we catch in a very close, intimate way. We can get to fishing spots that others cannot since our boats are more portable and able to get in to skinny water conditions. We make custom modifications to our boats to suit our unique fishing style and capabilities.

Our fishing experience is unique due to the class of boats we use. The Minnesota Kayak Fishing Association is being formed as way for us to easily share the unique things that are of interest to kayak fishing people and make it easy to meet other kayak anglers.

Who can join?

YOU…AND IT’S FREE! There are no age limits. All men, women and children are welcome. It doesn’t matter what type of fish you prefer to catch (okay…fish for :)). It doesn’t matter what type of equipment you use. This effort is grass-roots and we want the entire spectrum of people, equipment and tips represented. When you sign up you will be added to our list to receive information on tournaments, get togethers, news from other members, participate in our forums, and get exclusive member deals from vendors and experts on kayak fishing.
