Lifetime membership in Kayak Bass Fishing is a one-time payment that ensures KBF has the financial resources to promote our healthy and exciting outdoor lifestyle; build a vibrant kayak fishing enthusiast community; conduct professionally-run, ethical competition; and work with businesses that make and sell the watercraft, apparel, and gear designed for our sport.
KBF Membership makes one eligible to compete in KBF TRAIL Series Tournaments and KBF Member-only Challenges, and to qualify through competition for a KBF National Championship slot. It also enables one to earn KBF Angler of the Year points, which determine not only who wears the annual KBF AOY crown but who will compete in "The TEN," KBF's tournament for a small group of anglers who end up the year at the top of the AOY rankings.
By paying this one-time fee now, you avoid annual renewals and rate increases over time. When you enroll, KBF will send as a free premium a KBF Life Member t-shirt (Prairie Dust in color for 2017) in your choice of size plus an assortment of KBF stickers for your kayak and vehicle. Specify size in the above drop-down menus. (These shirts will be for sale, too, but to Life Members only.)
Kayak Bass Fishing is the nation's leading kayak fishing information-sharing forum and tournament organization. Membership includes a growing list of benefits and discounts that are detailed on the Membership page of this website.
Also consider enrolling each year in the KBF BONUS BUCKS program, which makes you eligible for cash and product prizes on top of regular tournament purses. KBF does not offer a lifetime BONUS BUCKS registration.
NOTE 1: KBF Membership is not required to compete in KBF OPEN Series and KBF TRAIL Series tournaments
