CKA Tournament 7
August 11, 2018
Welcome Anglers to 2018 Tournament #7, and the second to last event of the regular season! Please note the important info below about launch times.
Both the AOY and ROY races are tight. Here is what is at stake in the final two events:
- CKA Tournament of Champions Qualification
- KBF National Championship Qualification
- Angler of the Year & Rookie of the Year crowns
We last fished Mackintosh for a single event in August of 2016. Lake Mackintosh (1,100 acres) has no horsepower restrictions for gas boats, but a large area for non-gas watercraft and boats on the western, Guilford County end. It is a city lake with special restrictions so please abide by all state and local rules.
This will be a multi-launch event using both the Guilford and Alamance ramps. CKA staff will be available at both launches to collect entry fees in the morning beginning at 6 am. We will hold the check in at the Guilford ramp at the end of the day.

Hey everyone! With prize updates out of the way, the most recent standings are ready!
Links to the ROY and AOY standings after Jordan Lake are posted below. With 6 events in the bag, AOY competitors will begin to shed low scores. The same is true of ROY, but that process began after the 4th event (Harris). Remember that tight races are decided by mere points, and this year’s races are tight at the top – anything can happen!
Additionally, anglers who are not yet in the top 25 can still qualify for the Tournament of Champions by improving scores over the last 2 events or also by winning an overall event.

CKA 2018 AOY ROY Update 07222018
CKA established the Tournament of Champions in 2016 to provide an end-of-season event for the top anglers on our trail. Fun and prizes are the event’s focus. Denny Romero won that inaugural 1-day event on the Yadkin River and Melvin Yang won last year’s expanded 2-day event at Lake Norman (for a short history, click here).
This year’s event (October 13 & 14) will again expand and improve the tournament. First, it will be a best 10 fish event (5/5 over two days). Second, it will be held on a lake the CKA has not fished this season (we will announce the lake at the Gate City Classic). Third, the field will expand slightly: in addition to the top 25, winners of individual events, the AOY and ROY will qualify (we also awarded a spot to the winner of the Bass event at the Boonedox Yadkin Slam).
Finally, a new expanded range of prizes have been organized. It includes:
$1,000 guaranteed for 1st place
An additional $1,000 in cash prizes spread out over the field (days 1 & 2)*
Free overnight camping accommodations for the top 10
Sponsor product giveaways
A Custom engraved trophy, designed by artist Ross Myer (FL) at Bass Trophies.

CKA Tournament 5
KBF Trail Event
Shearon Harris Lake, NC
June 9th, 2017
Welcome anglers to event #5 of the 2018 CKA tournament season. The tournament will be held on June 9th at Shearon Harris Lake. This is our yearly visit to world renowned Shearon Harris and it is our first time hosting a KBF Trail on the lake. The tournament will be a multi-launch event using the two available public ramps at the lake.
The event will be held in conjunction with a KBF Trail Event. Anglers may fish either the CKA and KBF event separately, or fish both events simultaneously. The CKA event is a 3 fish limit event and the KBF Trail event is a 5-fish limit event, but an angler’s 3 CKA fish can be cross-posted to the KBF event on Tourney X. Additionally, non-KBF members can compete in the KBF event but we encourage anglers to sign up as KBF members.
