Get ready for a boom in kayak bass fishing. Fishing League Worldwide (FLW), the world’s largest tournament-fishing organization, announced today that it has partnered with Kayak Bass Fishing, LLC, (KBF) the nation’s foremost organization supporting kayak bass anglers, to hold two kayak bass fishing tournaments in 2019.

The two events will be held in conjunction with FLW Tour events – the FLW Tour at Lake Chickamauga and the FLW Cup at Lake Hamilton – on nearby fisheries to offer kayak anglers and tour pros separate fisheries for competition. KBF will manage operation of the two events, and the winners will be recognized on the FLW Tour stage and featured in FLW’s media outlets.

“Kayak fishing has become incredibly popular in recent years and continues to grow,” said Dave Washburn, FLW Vice President of Operations. “We are excited to work with KBF as the kayak-fishing community leader to elevate the sport to new highs with tournaments offering over 100 percent payouts through the course of the season and the biggest media platform available to kayak anglers.”

The first event, the FLW/KBF Open, will be hosted by Fish Dayton and Fish Lake Chickamauga May 4-5, 2019, on Nickajack Lake. Entry fee for the event is $200 per kayak, and the top 100 anglers will qualify to compete in the second event, the FLW/KBF Cup in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Of these 100 qualifiers, the top 20 receive free entry. All other qualifiers pay a $500 entry fee. The FLW/KBF Cup will be held Aug. 8-10, 2019, on a lake to be announced in conjunction with the Aug 9-11 FLW Cup on Lake Hamilton.

“We are excited to partner with FLW to take competitive kayak fishing to the next level and offer better exposure to our top anglers and their accomplishments,” said Chad Hoover, KBF President.

Anglers can register for the FLW/KBF Open at KayakBassFishing.com/flw. Watch for additional details on both KayakBassFishing.com/flw and FLWFishing.com/kayak.

KBF was formed in 2009 to offer kayak anglers the opportunity to compete for hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash and prizes at premier fisheries around the country. Currently in its seventh season for live events, KBF offers more than 25 professional-level bass-fishing tournaments to kayak anglers.
