This is a KBF event that BKFT is hosting.
Please be aware that KBF may have different rules & guidelines.
To read those rules please go here: EAST/WEST HARBOR
ALL ANGLERS MUST USE THE KBF IDENTIFIER;
NOT THE BKFT IDENTIFIER!
The KBF IDENTIFIER CAN BE FOUND HERE.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, early in the year some KBF events were cancelled. To offset the situation and to create enough events for the Northeast KBF Trail there will now be TWO events at EAST/WEST Harbor. One event will take place on Saturday, July 25 and another will take place on Sunday, July 26. Click on the link above to read all the details.
To register for the Saturday July 25th event go HERE.
To register for the Sunday July 26th event go HERE.
KBF will be supplying their own prize list, but BKFT has also secured the following:
Fishermans Central will be supplying $500 worth of prizes!!!
Be sure to check out their new location coming soon to Port Clinton!
BKFT Prizes are raffled off to the anglers who didn't win cash payouts for 1st, 2nd, or big fish.
Trail points awarded for this event will be different than other Tour Series Events. We are still awarding 25 points for 1st place, 24 for 2nd, 23 for 3rd.....all the way down to 1 point for 25th place.
The difference for this event is that ONLY your best score from the May 2nd East/West Harbor event, July 25th, or July 26th event will be used for BKFT trail points.
The best score of the three are used and the lowest are thrown out. You do not have to participate in all 3 or even 2 of 3 it is just your best score of the 3 will be used.If you only participate in one that score will be used.
After hearing feedback that some anglers didn't want to pay the higher KBF registration fee we thought this would be a happy medium. There were two factors that led us to awarding points at during this KBF event:
1. A large amount of BKFT anglers participate in the KBF July event, KBF Trail Series, KBF Online Challenges, etc.
2. To give exposure to the talented BKFT anglers on a regional/national stage.
This is why we are holding two (now 3) events at the great fishery of East/West Harbor where only the best finish counts towards trail points. Also, don't miss out in pre-fishing this event at the May 2nd event!
Camping/Meet & Greet
1169 N. Buck Road
Lakeside-Marblehead, Ohio 43440
The campground is located along East Harbor and has it's own kayak ramp launch into East Harbor.
Be sure to make reservations soon, as they may fill up quick!
The measure-in is also a good oppurtunity to meet & greet fellow kayak anglers of all skill levels and talk about our mutual love of kayak fishing.
