The Realtree Fishing KBF TRAIL Series powered by Dakota Lithium contracted to a total of only four tournaments in 2024. It has been the shortest, most compact KBF TRAIL season in the event’s nearly one decade-long history.

And now it will end.

Fittingly, it will close on Chickamauga, a lake that holds many great KBF TRAIL Series memories and landmark moments in the history of competitive kayak fishing. They include:

Kayak Bass Fishing will return to Chickamauga on June 1-2, 2024. It will be the final KBF TRAIL Series event prior to the 2024 Trail Series Championship on October 10-13 in Huntsville, Alabama.

Rogue Gear Co. AOY Race

After strong showings at Lake Murray and Guntersville, Tim Isaacs remains the leader in the Rogue Gear Company KBF TRAIL Series Angler of the Year points race. However, anglers took advantage of Isaac’s absence at Santee-Cooper to gain ground. Deamen Henderson moved into 2nd place, for example, while Eric Nelson climbed the board, too. The Angler of the Year and Rookie of the Year races are fare from set in stone heading into the closing regular season event at Chickamauga.
