Our inaugural trail series leads to the mighty Lake Champlain, a world-renowned bass factory that splits the borders between New York, Vermont, and Canada. The first-ever Elite Kayak Fishing Championship will take place on that world-class fishery on September 11, 2021, and we have no doubt you want to fish it.

However, while our first four events are open to all anglers, you’ll have to earn your way into the championship.

In addition to qualifying for our championship, anglers also have the opportunity to qualify for the KBF National Championship as well as the All-American Kayak Classic.

Here’s how…


• Place in the top 10 at any of our first four events
• Accumulate 800 Angler of the Year points during our first four events

• Place in the top 10% at any EKF event, championship included


• Place in the top 10 in the EKF Angler of the Year race

Courtesy of the All-American Kayak Series, we will also be giving away the Ben Spangler Sportsman Award to one deserving angler. Ben, who sadly passed away last year, was a beloved angler in our growing community, a friend to many, so it will be our pleasure to award this honor to someone.

And that covers everything. Pretty straight forward.

As always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns.
