As a long standing affiliate of Kayak Bass Fishing, CKA enjoys the highest level of coordination with Kayak Bass Fishing. We receive event support and sponsor support from them and KBF has entrusted CKA to manage multiple Trail events. In return, our best anglers compete at KBF events where they have repeatedly proven themselves against the best. We all take pride in the work we do in North Carolina, but when one of our anglers has success on the national stage, we are particularly proud.
We want each of you to have that chance. And so we want to remind everyone that anglers can qualify for the KBF National Championship through individual CKA events (and also through the final AOY standings). CKA can award spots to the top 10% of the field at each event and also distribute “at large” spots to the AOY field (for more on how that works, see this link). However, anglers must be KBF members prior to the event. If you hope to qualify, please sign up.
We will post occasional reminders and updates this season, as we always do, but if you are hoping to qualify for the 2020 National Championship at Guntersville, please renew your KBF membership. We want you guys to represent CKA, Get Outdoors and North Carolina at Nationals.
And yes, the CKA event at High Rock on May 4th will be a qualifying event!
The following anglers have qualified for the KBF National Championship through CKA. Join us in congratulating them!
Event 1 (Burlington Bash) Attendance: 87 anglers = 8 spots
Rick Rowland (4th place)

Event 2 (Jordan Lake) Attendance: 60 anglers = 6 spots
