The Top Team Challenge Cup is the tournament within the tournament. It is the youngest championship event and also one of the most fun to fish and follow.
The basic format is that a sponsor/company assembles a team (or teams) of four anglers to field. Those anglers each contribute their best fish to the leaderboard each day over the course of the two-day event. The two days are concurrent with the first two days of the Yak Attack KBF National Championship (Oct 19-20, 2022).
Since 2021, teams have four anglers each, so the team with the eight longest fish (two per angler, one per each angler each day) wins the Top Team Cup.
The Kentucky Lake edition will be the fourth Top Team Cup event and the first ever held at the lake. Previously:
- In 2019, Team KayakJaks Outfitters won the first ever Top Team event
- In 2020, Team Ketch won the trophy.
- In 2021, Team Dakota Lithium won the Top Team trophy.
