With a new year comes a whole new Great Lakes Kayak Fishing Series aka GLKFS is a lot of fun and organized by some knowledgeable kayak anglers such as +Colin Belle and Brookfield Angler.  I have participated in a few of the events the past 2 years, and have always had a great time.  Unfortunately, I do not think any of the dates will work out for me this year, but I highly recommend you give 1 or all the stops a shot!

May 14th – Fox Chain O’Lakes
Target Species – Walleye, Catfish, and Panfish
June 11th – Madison Chain of Lakes
Target Species – Smallmouth & Largemouth Bass
July 24th – Mazonia/Braidwood
Target Species – Smallmouth & Largemouth Bass
September 10th – Manitowoc/Lake Michigan
Target Species – All Trout/Salmon
Tournament entry fee is $45 per event, but if you pay up front for all 4, it’s $160, and that nets you a total of $20 in savings.  There are cash and gear prizes for placing in each event, but there are also a ton of door prizes to be raffled away to everyone at the event after the winners are announced.  Like I said, I had a great time at past events, and while I never placed, I walked away with some pretty sweet gear won in the raffle/door prizes.
