KBF’s Angler of the Year year-long race is fiercely contested, with the winner not only claiming hot-stick status but a prize package valued at between $10,000-$20,000.
KBF National Challenges
One Night Stands the final Friday of each month from April through October. Father’s Day Challenges. Back to School(ing Bass) Challenge in August. Black (Bass) Friday Challenge. All these and more add more opportunities to compete and win on waters close to home, and usually during hours that can be found around work and family commitments.
KBF State Challenge Series
KBF’s Catch-Photo-Release (CPR) style of tournament and the use of tournament management systems make possible these month-long competitions, where KBF Members pit themselves against anglers in their own state or multi-state group, on their favorite public waters, on their own schedule. KBF AOY Points, KBF National Championship qualifying slots, and cash prizes in each state help ensure that anglers have opportunities for competition and rewards close to home.
