Payouts & Prizes

  • Entry fee's are evenly split into two winning categories:

    • Longest fish​

    • Total length of all fish caught (no limit on fish caught).

  • For every 10 anglers there will be another spot paid for total length.

    • 10 anglers - 2 total length spots paid

    • 20 anglers - 3 total length spots paid

    • 30 anglers - 4 total length spots paid....etc, etc.

  • For every angler payout the registration money designated for payouts evenly divides by the number of payouts.​​​​​

  • See rules section on tie breakers.​​​

  • Trophies awarded for payout spots (only if 10+ anglers register)

Payouts take anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks to process.​

We try to make payouts as soon as possible but objections being filed, rule violations, and in-depth photo reviews can result in delays.

For individuals to whom BKFT pays out $600 or more during a calendar year, we will prepare an IRS Form 1099 and require information from the angler before the payment is made.

 

Feel free to email buckeyekayakfishingtrail@gmail.com regarding the status of your payout.

Measuring Musky

  • Unlike other BKFT events this event allows different measuring devices.  

  • Ketch boards are the preferred, but not required, measuring device.

    • They have 16", 26", 32" and a folding 48" board.​

    • The 48" board is ideal for this tournament

  • Homemade measuring devices are not permitted.

  • If a fish is longer than your measuring board a tape measure along side the board is required.  The tape measure should lay flat and the start of it lay as close to the beginning of the board as possible.​

  • Fish grips are allowed.

  • If the fish is not touching the bump board fence located at the 0" mark expect a deduction.

  • Signing up for this tournament anglers agree that measuring devices may be requested for inspection at any point before, during, or after the tournament.

  • If you have multiple pictures that help determine length please upload them to Tourney X individually. Mark the first picture with the length of the fish and the other pictures with 0"-1" in length.

  • At the end of the day if a picture(s) do not clearly define fish length the judges will make a determination.  The determination is a length the judge knows to be true not a guess as to what they think might be true.

Musky pictures on this page are the best methodology to photograph your musky.
