KBF Southeast Region Trail at Santee Cooper

Every season, dozens of CKA anglers divide their efforts between our  series and the national KBF trail and major tournaments. The results have often been spectacular –Rick Rowland simultaneously won the KBF Open on Kentucky Lake and also placed 3rd at the 2017 KBF National Championship, Jamie Denison won the 2018 AOY and the 2019 events at Toledo Bend, Cory Dreyer won the “Ten” at Bienville and extended his legendary streak of placing in the money at consecutive Open and National Championship events. In these examples and others, CKA anglers have performed at a high level at KBF events from the start.  

KBF has reconfigured its 2019 Trail schedule, dividing states into regions and reducing the number of Trail events. Lakes are big and the stakes are bigger, with Regional Championships, National Championship qualifying and the new Pro Series category all in play.

And it all begins nearby for the Southeast region, on February 23rd at Santee-Cooper.

Renew or begin your KBF membership. Book your rooms, load your gear and step up your game to become the next CKA angler to gain national recognition this season.

Big Bass Brawl at KBF Trail (Gate City Classic)

Hi everyone,

As we gear up to compete in the Gate City Classic  this coming Saturday, we want to remind anglers who signed up for the KBF Trail of the option to compete for additional prize money. KBF runs a Big Bass Brawl at every major Trail and Open event. Here is how it works:

  • Sign up at the KBF store for the Gate City Trail Big Bass Brawl (see link below)
  • The biggest bass posted every hour wins $50 for the event (your bass can rollover from one hour to the next – it has to be knocked down by a longer fish).
  • $500 goes to the angler with the biggest bass in the tournament.
  • Up to $950 in Big bass money may be paid out over the course of the event

The cost to sign up is only $25. If you do not sign up, you are not eligible. Register at this link: https://kbfstore.com/products/kbf-big-bass-brawl?variant=7485562978340

Remember that you can also sign up for the CKA event (3 fish format) that runs parallel to the Trail!

CKA Event 8: The Gate City Classic and KBF Trail

The Gate City Classic

Multi-Lake Event

October 6th, 2018

Hi everyone, and get ready for the Gate City Classic! The Classic is when we conclude and celebrate our season with fishing and food. This year it will also be when we determine – for the first time – the CKA Rookie of the Year! A number of prizes, qualifications and details are also determined on this final day of the regular season. They include:

  • AOY winner. The CKA Angler of the Year wins a custom prize package
  • KBF National Championship slots for the top 5.
  • The final standings to determine anglers who will proceed to the Tournament of Champions on October 13th.
  • Location selection for the Tournament of Champions. The lake is announced after the Classic and Final standings are announced.

Additionally, this year’s event is notable because we will also host a KBF Trail event. Remember that the 2019 KBF National Championship will be a multi-lake event, so the Gate City Classic is an excellent practice event for qualified anglers. And because the KBF AOY race is tight, and many KBF anglers are jostling for position in “The Ten” at Bienville Plantation, we expect a large turnout for the combined events. 

  1. Event Details

As noted above, the Classic 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.  This post contains
