The Great Lakes Kayak Fishing Series is the first of its kind in the region. The series is has three events, each with its own target species.

The Great Lakes is home to a wide variety of warm and cold water species of fish. We want to see who is the best at catching them all. The first event was May 3 on the Fox Chain in Illinois for walleye. The second is a bass tournament, June 14 on the Illinois River in Ottawa, IL. The last of the series is a Chinook salmon tournament on September 6 in Manitowoc, WI. There are many prizes to win at each event, and the winner of the series will receive a Hobie "Outback".
