Big Changes for Kayak Bass Fishing

Been some shakeup over in KBF Land the last week or so. If you haven’t watched any of the videos or aren’t in the Members Only Facebook group, here’s a list of the more significant changes that affect us…

KBF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

They held on for as long as possible, but the KBF National Championship has been postponed. Tentatively, they’re looking at the first week in November. Nothing concrete yet, but that’s what they……


A Few Things About This Year’s Season…

A few things about this year’s season…

RULES

First and foremost, read the rules. We are partnered with Kayak Bass Fishing, therefore we have adopted their Competition Rules Standards, which you can find here.

Whether you’re new to kayak fishing or have fished with us before, please read the rules and make sure you understand everything. If you have questions, please ask.

While we follow the bulk of those rules, we do……


Announcing the Massachusetts B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series

With his second place finish at the very first B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series tournament on Logan Martin Lake last week, our buddy Mark Edwards got to experience something many of us never thought possible or only dreamed about: walking across the Bassmaster Classic stage and holding a trophy high!

Massachusetts Kayak Bassin’ is proud to announce that we are now an official B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series club, offering anglers their shot at……


Announcing the New England KBF Partner Trail Series

It started as an idea. A single regional event, hosted by many of New England’s and New York’s various kayak fishing groups, working together instead of against each for the good of the sport.

That was 2018, and we ran out of time.

We readdressed the idea again last year, thought that a standalone regional trail series would work even better. Instead of all groups working on one huge event, allow one or a few to……


Announcing the 2020 MAKB Tournament Schedule

We are excited to finally announce our 2020 trail schedule!

This has been a long process, I know, but the goal was to create a schedule with as few conflicts as possible. With so many of us traveling to KBF events, we wanted to keep those dates free (at least for those tournaments in our region), so anglers don’t have to choose.

And with the addition of the New England KBF Partner Trail Series, plus the……


Merry MAKB Christmas!

From all of us here at MAKB, we want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! We hope you all have a wonderful day with your loved ones.

On a personal note, I’d like to thank all of you for making this one of the best fishing communities around. When I started this group in 2016, I had no idea how much and how fast we would grow. I’ve met some amazing people……


Know How to Save Your Own Life

Most of you know about my ordeal at the National Championship in 2018, when I flipped in 49-degree water. Being entirely unprepared nearly cost me everything.

I know better now, but watching a video like this before I flipped would have been a great help. This information is invaluable, in cold or warm weather.

“Know how to save your own life.”

Thanks, Jeff!


Get Outta My Spot!

Yesterday, eighteen of us ventured to Oldham Pond for a post-season team/zone event. Anglers were paired randomly and then one drew for their starting zone, A or B. Anglers then fished each zone for four hours.

It was not our most efficiently run event, new format and all, but we made it through. Definitely needs some tweaks if we’re to ever do it again.

Because we were fishing Oldham, we ran an……


A Quick Word on Angler Etiquette

As you all know, we are partnered with Kayak Bass Fishing (KBF) and we use TourneyX as our tournament management system. Massachusetts Kayak Bassin’ is run with integrity and respect to our anglers, and we trust and believe in these two companies, as they are aligned with our goals as a group.

We do not require our anglers to share those same beliefs, but openly and continuously disparaging our partners—or our sponsors, anglers, etc.—on social……
