Kayak Bass Fishing Northeast Open

Erie Sports Commission

For the first time, the Kayak Bass Fishing (KBF) Northeast Open will be held in Erie on Friday, September 14 and Saturday, September 15! Kayak Bass Fishing hosts tournaments in many states across the country to declare who is the best Kayak Bass angler in the nation.

Competitors will launch into Presque Isle Bay at 6 a.m. on both days, and return to check in by 4 p.m.

A cash prize of $5,000 will be awarded to the first place angler, along with 5,000 KBF bonus bucks. Competitors who place in the top 10 will qualify for the 2019 KBF National Championship. The combined length of 10 bass over two days (five bass on Day 1 plus five bass on Day 2) will contribute to each competitor’s score.

The competition is open to all kayak bass anglers. KBF membership is not required to compete for cash prizes. Only 2018 KBF members are eligible to earn KBF Angler of the Year  points, bonuses and qualify for the KBF National Championship. 

A $150 registration fee is required.
