Everyone joins LIKBF for different reasons. We are a competitive tournament kayak fishing club, but you do not have to fish every tournament to be a member. Some members just want to make friends, others to compete, some looking to find something in common with others, or to become a better angler. LIKBF wants you to take from the club what you want and just find your niche. LIKBF offers many options for the kayak angler. Our club will allow and challenge you to compete on a local, regional and national level, share stories which all anglers love to do, or just get out. But one thing we do know. You will make some great memories and new friends that will last a lifetime.
