CBKA was founded in 2010 by several Maryland & Northern Virginia kayak fishing friends when they realized that, although there were well-established kayak fishing tournaments in the Norfolk/Virginia Beach area and all over the country, there was no Chesapeake Bay kayak angler tournament.

They put together a State of Maryland non-profit organization with three main goals:

  • Raise money for charities
  • Promote conservation of the Chesapeake Bay
  • Promote kayak fishing as a recreational and low impact environmental outdoor activity
Through its annual kayak fishing tournament, CBKA is able to fulfil its goals while providing a fun and educational event for anglers from the MD-DC-VA area and beyond.
