BLUEGRASS KAYAK ANGLER MEMBERSHIPS

While anyone is eligible to fish in BKA tournaments in 2017, membership in Bluegrass Kayak Anglers does have its benefits, as only BKA members who enter a BKA tournament will be eligible for prize drawings held at the conclusion of that tournament as well as AOY points. All sponsor prizes are to be given away by drawing this year; you do not need to “place” in a tournament to win prizes.
