The FishUSA KBF Challenge Series Championship powered by Dakota Lithium: A Preview
In 2019, Indiana’s Mike Elsea travelled to the Kayak Bass Fishing Challenge Series Championship in Louisiana. He qualified through a Challenge Series event but had never fished an in-person tournament. Elsea left Shreveport as the KBF National Champion.
KBF’s Challenge Series is the gateway to tournament kayak fishing. Every season, thousands of anglers across the continent compete for qualifying spots and prizes. They also compete for points. At the end of the regular season (September) one angler from each state is crowned the state champion based on their cumulative point total of their top scores from 3 monthly events. If there is a tie, it is settled at the Challenge Series Championship.
Here is the beauty of it all: your 2022 points carried over to the championship round. All the hard work set you up for a big finish at the Championship. And if you finish 1st overall, and you are the Challenge Series Champion, then you earn a spot to the next edition of DEE ZEE KBF THE TEN, the most prestigious and exclusive event in our sport.
This year, some heavy hitters will head into the event with full points, and several others will also be favored to win. John DiCenzo, Justin Faircloth, Anthony Garcia, Chris Gomes, Deamen Henderson, Cody Henley and Matthew Conant have all compiled strong tournament records in the KBF Challenge Series, to name a few. But the championship round awards points and a half in the standings, so it is anyone’s to win.
