Identifiers can be printed off HERE. The code for the identifier will be released by 9PM the night before the tournament on Facebook & Tourney X. 

An identifier with no code, the wrong code, or codes in the wrong boxes will not be accepted.  If participating in multiple tournaments you can combine codes on a single identifier, but they must be correct and they must be in the appropriate box.

Another option for an Identifier (that is not mandatory) is a reusable option made out of durable aluminum by Blue Fox Gifts.  MAKE SURE YOU ORDER THE BUCKEYE KAYAK FISHING TRAIL IDENTIFIER.

Payouts & Prizes

  • ~10% of the field will receive a payout​​​​​​.

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.
