2021 Tournament Qualified Anglers
The LIKBF Tournament Of Champions will replace what was the Classic. The TOC gives every LIKBF angler a chance at a truly prestigious title that isn’t really offered anywhere else. With more than 12 ways to qualify for the TOC anyone who puts the effort in during the season will have a good shot to qualify. 12 Anglers will qualify throughout the previous season.
Qualifying: There are multiple ways to Qualify for TOC. LIKBF will be hosting two brand new tournaments called the Spring Fling and the Fall Brawl. Both of these tournaments are qualifying events. You can also qualify by winning first place in any LIKBF Elite Series tournament, first place in the Eliminator Series, Winning Angler Of The Year, or winning the previous years Tournament Of Champions.
If in the event that an angler qualifys multiple times, then that spot will be dropped down as many times as needed to fill the field starting with the highest non qualifying angler according to AOY standings from the previous year. This includes both The Spring Fling and Fall Brawl tournaments. If the winner of either of the qualifiers have already qualified then their spots would also drop down in the AOY standings.
In order to compete, Anglers who qualify for the TOC must be in good standing and have paid club dues 24 hours before that season’s first elite tournament in order to be able to fish the TOC.
