Setting up your TourneyX account and Submitting Catch Photos

Hi everyone,

CKA will continue to use Tourney X to judge tournament photographs for the 2018 season.  This is a great website and very easy to use. Consulting with kayak anglers year round, TourneyX continually improves its functions. There are a few changes to be aware of on the site/app. These include:

  • Option to upload fish to multiple events at once
  • Select CKA as the club you represent (you can find the list under “Clubs” in the main menu)

If you are a new angler, practice using the site, and even if you are a veteran angler please familiarize yourself with the new features. Please review the information below. If there are still questions, ask CKA staff (or join the TourneyX group on Facebook).

What is it?

TourneyX is a website and app (the app is free) for live check in of fish caught in Catch-Photo-Release (CPR) tournaments. You can download the app or save the home page to your phone for easy access. Anglers catch a fish, take a photo of it on their board (with ID) and upload it to the site for live scoring.

What does it cost and what are the benefits?

KBF Membership reminder

Hello everyone,

This is a friendly reminder that KBF requires membership registration by July 31st for anglers who expect to qualify for and attend the 2018 National Championship at Kentucky Lake next March. If you do not register as a KBF member by that time your spot will roll down to the next angler.

Remember that the top 5 anglers in the CKA standings will qualify for the National Championship. There is a tight numerical grouping at the top of our standings and some may not want to risk signing up only to finish 6th and not get a roll down. That is fine. But should you earn big points at the final two CKA events and make our top 5 after the deadline,  please understand there is nothing we can do about it. The next KBF member in the standings will get that spot.

Additionally, if you are a CKA angler who has already qualified for the National Championship through some other format such as an Open, Trail event or On-line Challenge, please remember that you must register for the National Championship on Tourneyx. You do not yet have to pay, but you do have to register.

We would hate for some of you to miss out on a chance at the National Championship because of a deadline, so we are posting this as a reminder. We are a KBF affiliate and we  encourage membership. KBF offers varied memberships options, including military discounts, lifetime memberships, student memberships, etc.For more information, see the KBF membership page at the following link:
