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

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.
