East Coast Kayak Fishing - Mission Statement

"We have a unique and important role to play in the collective lives of those whom we support and connect with through our very own passion, the Kayak Angler. With this role comes a core responsibility to bridge and maintain the life lines that are in place to unconditionally support them and, as a result, we become a force of credible distinction that the industry (Innovators & manufacturers) rely upon to help cross that bridge simply because of the alliances and allegiance we have earned through the trust of our own community."

Team ECKF is a seasoned  group of kayak fisherman chosen from various states throughout the east coast committed to foster the growth and devlopment of the sport of Kayak Fishing. This geographical diversity within the team gives us strength as a unit and high visibility within the kayak fishing community. Together we commit to fishing all major kayak fishing tournaments, attending and supporting as many events local and abroad.

Tauras Vebeliunas aka FEEDINGFRENZY

tarusvflounderMy name is Tauras Vebeliunas, and i was born and raised on Long Island, New York. I've fished the waters of the Northeast and abroad, both salt and sweet, since the early 1980's. While I love to fish year round in the surf, offshore and inshore by boat,  on charters and excursions, and more - kayakfishing is my main passion on the angling front.

As for my paddling experience, it dates back over 25 years, and includes lake and river canoeing/kayaking, ocean kayaking, and, extended wilderness canoeing/camping.
While I fished on many of those trips years ago, it was never considered a separate niche of angling- just a rod, a canoe, and fish! Today, of course, kayak-fishing is a huge sport on it's own, and being a part of the birth and evolution since it began, has been both a privilege, and, tons of fun!

Through tournaments and gatherings, the KFA-NY, ECKF, and sometimes just friendly chat on the shoreline, I've gained many great friends, and I always look forward to that next fishing trip on the yak!
