KBF TRAIL SERIES Tournament #3
On Saturday, May 14, KBF Members will launch their kayaks to test their skill, preparation, and fishing savvy against the heavily-pressured fish on one of the most renowned big bass reservoirs in the nation, Lake Guntersville. This lake ranked #6 in Bassmaster’s Top 100 Bass Lakes for 2015 (after rankings of #3 in 2012, #4 in 2013, and #5 in 2015).
Despite constant pounding from multiple bass tournaments each week throughout the year, this fertile Tennessee River lake continues to produce impressive numbers. Many times it takes over 80 inches to win a 5-bass event here.
The third tournament of the 2016 KBF TRAIL Series, this tournament is expected to draw anglers from throughout the Southeast and Mid-Central states.

KBF TRAIL – Dale Hollow Results
Jay Wallen of Bluegrass Yakmasters has entrenched himself as the man to beat for Kayak Bass Fishing Angler of the Year honors.
On Friday, March 21 he surpassed a field of 131 anglers on Kentucky Lake to win the first KBF OPEN Series Tournament of the year. Two days later he came in 9th out of 230 of America’s top kayak bass fishermen in the KBF National Championship.
His streak continued when, on April 2, Wallen dominated Dale Hollow where kayak anglers competed in the inaugural KBF TRAIL Series Tournament.
At that tournament, KBF members and guest anglers donated another $900 to Heroes on the Water, bringing their total contributions for the year to over $6,000. In the KBF HOW Big Bass Brawl on Dale Hollow, Wallen was the second day’s top KBF BONUS BUCKS competitor and pocketed an extra $200 bonus for his 19.5-inch fish. Thomas Williams received the first day’s KBF BONUS BUCKS $200, and he also won an ATAK Prize Pak. That prize included an A.T.A.K. 140 Advanced Tactical Angling Kayak from Wilderness Systems, a Realtree Camo pattern Bending Branches Pro Plus paddles, an NRS Chinook fishing PFD, and a YakAttack BlackPak with a commemorative lid. Thanks to those great companies for promoting these KBF Brawls and for their generous contributions to Heroes on the Water.
