The Realtree Fishing KBF TRAIL Series presented by DEE ZEE will have its eighth stop of the season at Ohio’s East/West Harbor on July 24th-25th, 2021. KBF is coordinating with the Buckeye Fishing Trail for the event. The longtime KBF partner organization run by Ryan Havlicek has hosted KBF TRAIL events in previous years, so this weekend of fishing will be one for old friends to meet and compete and for new folks to join the fun with an established local trail.

In the bigger picture, three events remain on the 2021 KBF TRAIL schedule and the Farwide Angler of the Year race is very close. The current top 10, heading in to the event, are:

  1. Rus Snyders
  2. Matt Kiefer
  3. Ryan Nye
  4. Jody Queen
  5. John Tibbens
  6. Ryan Matylewicz
  7. Nick Audi
  8. Cody Milton
  9. Kristine Fischer
  10. Matthew Conant

Spot 1-5 are only 6 points away from Rus Snyders lead of 1770 points. Additionally, any number of anglers in the top 100 could break into the top 10 with a victory. And there is a wild card: Brandon Bissell has two wins under his belt. While he is currently in 78th place overall, another victory or even a top 5 finish would vault him into 1st place overall.

Ohio’s beautiful East/West Harbor is a familiar stop on the KBF TRAIL. It hosts great smallmouth and largemouth fishing on Lake Erie, with good bites to be found offshore and inshore. Book your travel plans – it’s time to decide the AOY race, who will be in DEE ZEE KBF THE TEN, and a host of other qualifying opportunities!
