Bayou Coast Kayak Fishing Club (BCKFC) is a non-profit recreational kayak fishing club. We strive to provide a friendly meeting place to organize area kayak fisherman from all across the Gulf coast. With an open public forum as well as a private members section, there is a wealth of information and ideas that have accumulated here since this club began in 2005, from experienced kayakers and fishermen alike. We host several events throughout the year; including many kayak fishing tournaments that are open to the public. These events are an excellent way to get in on some great conversation with the most talented kayak fishermen in the area. The food and fun at the weigh-ins alone are well worth the price of admission. In addition to the tournament style events, we partner with local sponsors in southern Louisiana to put on demo days that allow those interested to test out all the different styles of yaks out on the market and ask question from those that have used them the most.
Beginning in 2011, BCKFC began expanding our charitable outreach by partnering with a local community organization to help children with life limiting illnesses; be sure to keep an eye out for the annual Casting for Kids summer fishing tournament put on by The Palliative Care Foundation of Baton Rouge!
BCKFC also makes every effort to insure that a public presence is maintained to protect the interest of kayak fishermen. We do so by keeping friendly, professional contacts with local communities and businesses that surround the most popular fishing areas and by maintaining an image of great sportsmanship. Whether you paddle or pedal, whether you fish from a deluxe Hobie Pro-angler or a basic pirogue your grandfather built many years ago, the Bayou Coast Kayak Fishing Club is the best place for you to find all the information you need to get the most out of this great sport in this great state we call Sportsman’s Paradise.
