Me, Dad & Chad Fathers Day KBF Challenge

Win a kayak plus a guided fishing excursion for you and your dad

KBF Challenge Series

This KBF Challenge is an online bass tournament series awarding prizes, eligibility for the next Kayak Bass Fishing NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. 5% of the field will earn qualifying spots for the 2017 KBF National Championship..

Winning a “Qualifying Spot” means that the KBF Member is now eligible to fish in the 2017 KBF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP. It does not cover the Entry Fee.

How to Enter a KBF Regional Challenge

The Entry Fee for  KBF Challenge is $25, which is collected when you sign up on TourneyX. If this is your first KBF Challenge, make sure to first create an account as a TourneyX member. Once you’ve done that, then find the event (it’s in the KBF Kayak Bass Fishing category), sign up and pay your entry fee, and then take it to the lake!

You may submit only one photo of each bass you catch, but there’s no limit to the number of bass you can submit as you attempt to improve your score. When you wish to submit a better photo of a fish you’ve already submitted, cull the first photo. And when you’ve maxed out at five bass, cull the shortest one to create space to submit another.

Only your top five bass will count toward your cumulative score. Entry into any Kayak Bass Fishing Regional Challenge Series event constitutes acceptance of TERMS AND CONDITIONS. Besides the KBF NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP slots, prizes will be awarded to the top five place finishers.


Me Chad & Dad Father's Day Challenge

The Kayak Bass Fishing Challenge is a nationwide, twenty-day online kayak fishing competition for KBF MEMBERS ONLY. As with all KBF Challenges, it follows a CATCH-PHOTO-RELEASE format using the TourneyX  tournament management system.

There are no regional or state weight factors in this competition. We’re not scoring on a curve based on climate and average bass lengths. Just cumulative length of your top five bass. [Register Now at TourneyX]
