- Hobie BOS, KBF Trail & B.A.S.S Kayak Nation
Competitive Kayak Bass Fishing has been nearly standardized across the kayak fishing world. If your new to the scene, the basics are as follows. Anglers fish out of kayaks and score their best 5 bass for the day. Bass are scored by measuring them (inches) on a Ketch measuring board, and submitting them to the tournament organization via smart phone photo. There are 3 major tours, Hobie Bass Open Series (BOS). Kayak Bass Fishing (KBF) Trail Series, and the B.A.S.S Nation Kayak Series (Bassmaster).
Created by Drew Gregory and Ken Morris, of the Hooked on Wild Waters Podcast - itunes - Stitcher - Google Podcasts. This fantasy game is meant to promote all top national level kayak bass fishing tournament trails, and their anglers. This game is also to give the fans, anglers, and communities a chance to following along and make these elite level events more interesting, as we'll now have a rooting interest in certain anglers. Be sure to download the Fantasizr app to follow along even easier.
Aside from the fun this brings, this will also be a great way to keep track of how much cash the top anglers in kayak fishing are bringing home each year. It will also help us see how much cash is awarded by the top 3 national trails.
We hope everyone joins in on the fun, regardless of group or league affiliations, sponsorships etc, because this is simply about the entire sport, its anglers and all the good people who are working hard to make these events happen. Even though it is free, don't discount how fierce the competition will be, because sponsors are kicking in new prizes daily and the total prize package will grow well into the thousands of dollars! Please consider supporting those brands who have contributed to the prize pool, since they are supporting us!
This league is in it's second year, but it's still experimental. It's supposed to be simple, fun, but yet competitive too! It's just a game, so don’t lose sight of this!
Not a "rule" persay but be sure to download the Fantasizr app to make following along even easier!
You can register a team of (6) anglers to fill out your roster. Anglers (who are also in the fantasy game) are also eligible to participate, and are allowed to choose themselves. We’d hope they would! Ha!
The game is simple; select 6 anglers for the year, but stay under the $50,000 salary cap!
Once you select your team, they are your team for the entire season. Your team can be changed up until the lineup locks at midnight on the night of Feb 19th.
Because several events will happen before the lineup lock date on Feb 19th, certain players salaries will go up based on how they have performed at the first few events. So, ideally, get your picks in before January 30th when the season kicks off with KBF's Trail Series event on the Kissimmee chain or else you may have to pay more for someone who already has a few fantasy points.
Your 6 anglers will earn your team's points based on how much money they earn at these national level tournaments. This includes any bonus bucks, big bass and big bass brawl bonus money, and special large events mentioned below.
The team with the most points after all national level events are over, will be declared the winner. Based on the current schedule, it appears the Hobie BOS Tournament of Champions will be the final event.
Only the Hobie Bass Open Series anchored by Power Pole & its Tournament of Champions (TOC) will count, the Bassmaster B.A.S.S Nation Kayak Series, the & the KBF Trail Series, plus the Kayak Bass Fishing National Championship, The KBF Tenvitational and KBF’s “The Ten” will count. This is about 41 total tournaments.
Prizes - This may be free, but it will still be taken seriously enough to be highly competitive because some real nice prizes are on the line! Thanks to our sponsors who are making our prize pool larger and larger by the day! We’ll be sure to update you on how large the prize pool is getting!
In case of ties, prizes will be split evenly.
You can create up to 2 teams. When selecting a team name, please pick a family friendly name. If we(Drew or Ken) find a name is not family friendly, your team is subject for removal.
However, one entry per organization/company is allowed. A team titled "Team Yak Attack" that is created by the Yak Attack company (typically would consist of their sponsored anglers), or "Team Kayak Bass Nation," that is created by the guys at KBN and likely consist of anglers who are either active on KBN or high on their Power Rankings, is allowed. Only one official team per company/community is allowed. For example, if John Hipsher from Yak Attack wants to create a Yak Attack team, he can do so for the brand, but also have a "John Hipsher" team. We wanted to give brands, communities, other shows/podcasts a chance to argue, banter and discuss or poll their fans/followers on who they feel they should "draft" on the team that is representing their brand/community. If an organization wins, no prizes will be awarded to them; prizes will roll down to the next "individual" participant.
New for 2021, organizations, online communities can create their own "groups" to play against those just in their community. They could even offer their own prizes for the winner of ther "group." All teams will still be entered into the overall standings as well.
Last date to sign up is Feb 19th. Lineups lock at midnight that night.
Players in the game either "cashed a check" in the game last year, or ended up in the Top 50 in AOY Standings for KBF or Hobie BOS. If you would like to be an angler in the game next year, shoot for being in the Top 50 in AOY Standings in either the KBF Trail Series or the Hobie BOS.
