The Realtree Fishing KBF TRAIL & KBF Pro Series Series presented by DEE ZEE and powered by Dakota Lithium begins their summer swing through the Northeast on May 21-22, 2022. The location: Maine’s storied Lake Messalonskee.

Commonly known as Snow Pond, the lake is a long, narrow fishery cut from the surface by glacial scouring and erosion, creating a diverse topography that is home to vegetation and wildlife. Snow Pond is an incredibly diverse fishery containing both warm water and cold water species (nearly two dozen freshwater species inhabit the lake, which also has abundant populations of crayfish). Snow Pond will present both challenges and opportunities to KBF competitors as they compete on this unique fishery.

This is KBF’s first northeast stop of the season, with two more on the schedule (Lake Champlain & Winnipesaukee).

KBF events comprise two single day tournaments as well as a KBF PRO SERIES event that spans both days.


  • KBF competition adopts a Catch-Photo-Release format. Eligible fish are submitted by competitors to the Fishing Chaos app for judging.
  • KBF Anglers may win prizes including the Dakota Lithium Big Bass and Dakota Lithium Power Play.
  • KBF Anglers earn points towards: Farwide KBF Angler of the Year, KBF Rookie of the Year presented by Rogue Fishing and the KBF Pro Series.
  • Qualifying opportunities include 2022 KBF Trail Series Championship, 2023 Pro Series Championship and more.
  • Points for KBF Challenge Series presented by FishUSA in the host state’s monthly Challenge Series event
