Mobile Bay Kayak Fishing Association 2018 Sponsorship Proposal

Mobile Bay Kayak Fishing Association’s History

The Mobile Bay Kayak Fishing Association (MBKFA) was started as a small group of six kayak fishing enthusiasts as a way to regularly get together for fishing and comradery. After meeting for lunch one cold rainy day, it was made an official association. MBKFA is now a Non-Profit 501(c)(7) kayak fishing association dedicated to bringing people from all walks of life together for a common interest. We are now in our 11th year as an association. Our mission when we started was, and still is: “To have fun and get healthy exercise by supporting and promoting the sport of kayak fishing in the Mobile Bay area and surrounding waters.”

What is Mobile Bay Kayak Fishing Association doing today?

The Association is a member driven group of kayak fishing and outdoor enthusiasts, which is active through the entire year. In addition to monthly member fishing trips and two major tournaments each year, The Bagwell and 5 Rivers; MBKFA assist in local activities that promote the outdoors, particularly fishing. MBKFA members also participate as fishing guides for the local chapter of Heroes on the Water(HOW). Many other kayak fishing groups have come and gone during the time MBKFA has been in existence. It is our dedication to inclusion and promotion of the sport of kayak fishing, our community activism and generosity in raising funds for such groups as CCA, ACF, Sheriff’s Flotilla, local Search & Rescue, HOW, and others, that has helped us to not only continue, but grow. We currently have over 1900 followers on the MBKFA Forum, 500+ following on Facebook and close to 200 dues paying members.

Why Partner with MBKFA?

Mobile Bay Kayak Fishing Association can offer sponsors an opportunity to reach thousands of fishing, kayaking and outdoors sporting enthusiasts for minimal investment.
