A Preview of The YakAttack KBF National Championship presented by Torqeedo

“The [KBF] National Championship was always intended to belong to the sport of kayak fishing.” That is how Chad Hoover described the biggest event in kayak fishing in a recent live video. Since the first event in 2016, the KBF National Championship has been just that – a chance for any kayak angler, regardless of experience, age or brand affiliation, to have a chance to embark upon a career in kayak fishing. From Matt Ball to Guillermo Gonzalez, the history of KBF’s biggest tournament confirms that fact.

The champions have come from all over our great country:

  • Guillermo Gonzalez, 2021 Champion (Texas)
  • Matthew Conant, 2020 Champion (Massachusetts)
  • Mike Elsea, 2019 Champion (Indiana)
  • Dwayne Taff, 2018 Champion (Texas)
  • Kurt Smits, 2017 Champion (Ohio)
  • Matt Ball 2016 Champion (Ohio)

This year, the 2022 KBF National Championship will return to the lake where it all started. On October 19-21, competitors will convene in Paris County, TN to fish on Kentucky Lake in the most accessible and rewarding event in our sport.

This is the fourth time KBF is holding the National Championship on Kentucky Lake, and the first time we will fish there in the fall.

One thing does not change: the next KBF National Champion will be crowned on October 21, 2022, and it could be anyone.

Will it be you?
