Tour Series Event #2
Delaware Lake

May 14, 2022


Event Rules

To register and pay click on the Tourney X logo:

Registration is open until the tournament start time.

$45 entry fee is broken down by the following:

  • $30 Payouts

  • $1 - AOY prize package at end of year

  • $5 - Tourney X fee

  • $9 - Trail expenses (trophies, permits, website, etc)


When signing up for this event anglers declare that they understand and will follow the rules listed HERE.  Anglers who violate the rules could face penalties all the way up to disqualification.

While it is the anglers responsibility to know ALL of the rules some common violations include:

*Not using an approved Ketch measuring board.

*No identifier or incorrect identifier codes (see identifier section on this page).

*Launching is only permitted from public access.

*Thoroughly read and memorize the rules section that describes how to measure a fish and understand each penalty that can be enforced.


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, Trophies & Prizes

  • Approximately the top 10% of the field will receive a payout.

  • Trophies awarded:

    • 1st Place

    • 2nd Place

    • 3rd Place

    • Big Fish

  • 1st Place will receive an invite to The Classic upon qualification!  Qualification requirements can be read HERE.

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 regarding the status of your payout.
