Kayak Bass Fishing National Championship Special Premieres on Sportsman Channel

Beachburg, Canada – Heliconia, producers of Kayak Bassin’ presented by Bonafide Kayaks and Knot Right Kayak Fishing presented by FishUSA, proudly announce the airing of the 2019 Kayak Bass Fishing (KBF) National Championships - a one-hour special premiering on Sportsman Channel, Saturday, July 13th at 7pm EST.

The YakAttack KBF National Championship presented by Torqueedo is an annual event that features the nation’s top kayak anglers and the sport’s up-and-coming talent. This year’s competition saw nearly 500 of the best kayak anglers from across the US and Canada descend upon Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana to compete for over $200,000 in prize money. Co-hosted by television star, YouTube personality and KBF president Chad Hoover, YouTube stars Scott Beutjer and Gene “the Flukemaster” Jensen, as well as KBF Creative Director Joe Haubenreich, the tournament was fast paced and competitive as over seven thousand fish were caught during the three-day competition.

“Competition amongst anglers, against the elements, the fish and themselves is fundamental to fishing. All of that was on display this spring at the YakAttack KBF National Championship Presented by Torqeedo, the biggest event in the world of kayak fishing," said KBF President Chad Hoover. “The three-day tournament was held on the Red River and the five lakes surrounding Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana. Over 460 kayak anglers came to explore Louisiana's bayous, lakes and backwaters. Anglers had to find their best 15 bass to earn the title of KBF National Champion and take home a check for $50,000 and their share of over $46,000 in KBF BONUS BUCKS."

The KBF National Championship uses the revolutionary Catch, Photo, Release (CPR) online scoring format, whereby anglers photograph their bass on standardized measuring boards as they’re caught, and then upload the images to the event website. This not only allows fish to be released where they’re caught, but it provides spectators and competitors with a live leaderboard, from start to finish. The combined scores of up to five bass each day—15 in all—determines the final standings.
