KBF wraps up the 2017 tournament series with END on the BEND, an OPEN Series Tournament on Toledo Bend, Bassmaster’s #1 big bass lake for two years in a row. This two-day, three-bass-per-day tournament is open to both KBF Members and non-members. It is a qualifying event for the 2018 KBF National Championship.
Prize money payout amounts and the number of paying places at the KBF END at the BEND will be determined by the number of registrants.
Details and Rules for this event are on the KBF Calendar Event Page.
Resident or temporary visitor fishing licenses are required by all KBF END at the BEND participants. Toledo Bend Reservoir, named Bassmaster Magazine’s #1 Bass Fishing Lake in the nation two years in a row, straddles Texas and Louisiana, so either state’s fishing license is valid for visitors or residents of either state as long as you remain in your boat and fish the state’s water for which your license is valid.
If you choose to exit your kayak temporarily in order to fish from the shoreline, make sure you have a license for that state.
Texas’ non-resident package is $58, which would cover you for all four days of the KBF HOW Big Bass Brawl. It’s $16 per day in Texas, so if you plan to just fish a couple days, that saves a few dollars. Louisiana offers a non-resident fishing license for $5 per day, plus service fee and/or tax. Where you launch or stay overnight doesn’t matter; when you’re on the water, either states’ license will suffice. For either state you’ll receive an authorization number and a PDF of your license, which you can keep on your smart phone and present to law enforcement.
