2019 Alabama Kayak Fishing Tournaments

Welcome to 2019!  Below is a listing of kayak fishing tournaments held in Alabama this year.  These tournaments are hosted by various independant clubs and organizations from both in and outside the state.  Like in years past, the highlight and grand finale of the year will be the Alabama Kayak Fishing Classic to be held late in the year and hosted by the kayak fishing club of Alabama.

We are thrilled to see two major national tournaments enter our state this year:  The Hobie Bass Open and Native’s Tournament of Titans with 2-time Bassmaster Classic winner Jordan Lee..

Feel free to contact us to add your events and details to our listings.

If you are interested in participating in the 2019 Alabama Kayak Fishing Classic as a sponsor, host club, or other, please contact us.

Always check the host organization’s websites for last minute event details and weather updates!
