Earn a KBF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP slot: Your own time. Your own spot.

KBF State Challenge Series

 

The KBF State Challenge Series is an online bass tournament series awarding prizes, bragging rights, and offering additional opportunities to qualify for the next Kayak Bass Fishing NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP.

Depending on the size of the field for each State Challenge, up to three anglers each month will earn a qualifying spot for the KBF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP.

  • 10- 50 Participants – 1 Qualifying Spot
  • 51-75 Participants – 2 Qualifying Spots
  • 76+ Participants Will Earn 3 Qualifying Spots

Championship Qualfication

Qualifying spot means that the angler is now qualified to fish in the KBF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP but is still required to pay the $200 Entry Fee.

Any angler who has already earned a CHAMPIONSHIP spot by winning an earlier qualifying event, whether online or a live tournament, will have his $200 Entry Fee waived.

Entry

The Entry Fee for a standard KBF State Challenge is $10.

Tournaments will be conducted using TourneyX, so your first step is to make sure you’re a member there. Once you’ve signed up, then find the state challenge series event for your state, register, and then take it to the lake!

Each State Challenge is a one-month, three-bass CPR (catch-photo-release) event that begins on the 15th day of the month. Submit photos of multiple bass; only your top three bass will count toward your cumulative score.

Entry into any Kayak Bass Fishing State Challenge Series event constitutes acceptance of TERMS AND CONDITIONS.

One prize is awarded for each 30 anglers registered.

KBF State Challenges with 29 or fewer anglers are competing strictly for the KBF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP qualification.

Prizes

30 to 59 Anglers: 1 Prize – $50 Minimum
60 to 89 Anglers: 2 Prizes – $100 and $50 Minimum
90 Plus Anglers: 3 Prizes – $150, $75, $50 Minimum

**After 120 Anglers, the prizes will continue to increase in value.

Rules

Familiarize yourself with the KBF State Challenge Rules posted on this Website before competing so you don’t end up having points deducted from your score due to infractions.
