LIKBF Tournaments are fished in person and are held on Long Island waters or within a 2 Hour driving period of our club, meeting location. Which could range from Upstate New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.
LIKBF's primary tournament season begins in April and ends in October. We generally fish one Tournament a month which brings us to a total between 7 and 8 tournaments for the season. We have squeezed two tournaments in one month permitting the month has 5 Sunday's in the month and we will fish one in the beginning and one at the end. It also depends on if there are other events going on with other clubs so we do not conflict each other. Individual anglers compete against a field of anglers in the standard events, but LIKBF also hosts occasional team events which are not for Angler of the Year Points, just all in good fun and a Cash prize payout. Cash prizes and other rewards are won by anglers at regular season individual events.
Angler of the year points are awarded to club members only, and to those members who compete in a LIKBF tournament. If you don't show, you do not get awarded points. All points are added at the conclusion of each tournament and qualify you to compete in the LIKBF Classic, and the KBF National Championship permitting you finish in the top five of our roster.
