California Striper Showdown Challenge

Striped bass kayak anglers compete for cash and KBF BONUS BUCKS

KBF Challenge Series

The KBF Challenge Series is an online fishing tournament series awarding prizes to anglers who register and compete.

How to Enter a KBF Challenge

The Entry Fee for a KBF Challenge varies, but for the California Striper Showdown, it is $10, which is collected when you sign up on TourneyX. If this is your first KBF Challenge, make sure to first create an account as a TourneyX member. Once you’ve done that, then find the Challenge in which you would like to compete, sign up and pay your entry fee, and then take it to the water! This KBF Challenge is a one-month, three-fish CPR (catch-photo-release) event. You may submit only one photo of each striped bass you catch, but there’s no limit to the number of fish you can submit as you attempt to improve your score. Only your top three fish will count toward your cumulative score. Entry into any Kayak Bass Fishing Challenge Series event constitutes acceptance of TERMS AND CONDITIONS. One prize will awarded to the top ranking finisher.
