A New Angling Opportunity, Kayak Tournament Bass Fishing
With the major announcement from B.A.S.S. kayak anglers will now have several ways to advance to a Bassmaster National Kayak Championship. From the Bassmaster Open Kayak events to local State Championships, 2020 will be an exciting year for sure.
Here in Maine we are in the process of putting together the season. We expect at least one qualifying event that will enable a percentage of those participants from that event to qualify for the Maine B.A.S.S. Nation State Kayak Championship to be held August 29-30, 2020 on Pleasant Pond on Saturday, and Cobbossee Lake on Sunday. Times, entry fees, rules and more are still in the works and will be posted here later this year.
Anglers must be at least 16 years old and members of a Maine B.A.S.S. Nation club, and meet all other guidelines to to be eligible to fish the state qualifiers, and state championship. If you do not have a kayak club now we can add you to our state club, Maine Kayak Bassmasters, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you signed up.
