JML Introduces Satellite Series and starts up the Kayak Anglers Association


2020 is shaping up to be a great year for JML Outdoors and all of our anglers with the addition of our new JML Outdoors Satellite Series as well as events for the newly formed Kayak Anglers Association.  

These will be mainly largemouth, smallmouth, and spotted bass events.  We will be introducing events for other species in the future.  It is the angler’s responsibility to read the rules for both series.


JML outdoors was formed in 2010 as a local run tournament organization fishing in Lake Havasu City, AZ.  Since that time we have expanded to running tournaments throughout the state of Arizona.  We have also over the years run tournaments for Bass Pro Shops and most recently nationally for SPRO.

Overall Highlights:

One membership covers all events JML & KAA ($45 per year good from date of purchase to date of purchase). Memberships are only needed for JML Satellite Series & KAA events.

Fish multiple events simultaneously with one trip to the lake

Use the Satellite events as individual buddy competition.

Kayak Anglers Association events are Kayak, SUP, Canoe, or Blue sky only.

Kayak Anglers Association events must be fished on public lakes or rivers.

JML Outdoors Satellite Series events are open to anyone that likes to fish.  Boat, Bank, Kayak, Canoe, etc.

Kayak Anglers Association

Kayak angling is taking the world by storm and like most groups we have taken notice.  We started working on the Kayak Anglers Association in the summer of 2019.  After conversations with different anglers we believe we have put something together that anglers of all skill levels can enjoy.  All Kayak Anglers Association events will require a membership to compete.  Kayak Anglers Association events will be powered by TourneyX.
