On Thursday, January 30th, the first ever joint Suskie Bassmasters – Pennsylvania Kayak Fishing Association meeting was held at Grotto Pizza in Kingston, PA. In attendance were members of both organizations, as well as representation from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission. As of January 1, 2014, PKFA has been established as a division of the Suskie Bassmasters. The meeting was a great opportunity for the membership of the two groups to meet and greet. This is a historic event, being the first ever known merging of a bass club and a kayak fishing group. The unification will allow the membership a greater voice in the regional outdoor community, as well as growing the resources to conduct service projects, tournaments, and other events.
