The GLKFS is the premier multi-species and only all kayak Lake Michigan salmon tournament series in the Midwest.  In addition we offer 5 qualifying slots for the 2018 Kayak Bass Fishing National Championship on Kentucky Lake with a grand prize of 100,000 dollars!  No membership necessary, pay in advance or show up on tournament day and pay on site.

Tournament Schedule

This year we will have an overall tournament series winner.  The winner will be calculated by combining your best 4 finishes out of our 5 events. You must fish at least 4 events to be eligible to win.  Whoever has the best average finish at the end of the year will be crowned the series winner at our final event in Manitowoc, WI.  He or she will take home a guaranteed $500 cash along with a hefty prize package from our sponsors.

We will also have 5 qualifying slots available for the 100,000 dollar 2018 Kayak Bass Fishing Championship on Kentucky Lake.  After combining scores from all 3 bass events the top 5 highest finishers will receive a slot and be heading off to Kentucky in 2018!  To be eligible to win a slot you must fish all 3 bass events and you must be a Kayak Bass Fishing member before July 31st, 2017.  You can sign up for KBF membership here.

We will also have 3 qualifying slots available for the Yak4it Tournament of Champions held the first week of November on Lake Fork, Texas.  First prize is generally around 10,000 dollars and a new Hobie Kayak.  Same rules apply for eligibility as for KBF qualifying slots, except you do not need to be a KBF member.
