For just the second time in the series’ history, the country’s best kayak anglers will head to Oklahoma, this time competing for a National Championship on Lake Tenkiller. The Bassmaster Kayak Series Championship will be held in Tahlequah, Okla., as part of the festivities surrounding the 2024 Bassmaster Classic in Tulsa.
The championship will be a two-day event, March 20-21, 2024. The awards ceremony will be held on the Bassmaster Classic stage at the BOK Center in downtown Tulsa March 22 prior to the Day 1 Classic weigh-in.
The last time the Bassmaster Kayak Series visited the Sooner State, Drew Gregory bested the field at Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees en route to winning the Angler of the Year title. With one event left in the 2023 season, Gregory is currently in 10th place in the AOY standings. This year's Kayak Series Championship winner Rus Snyders (733 points), Nick Dyer (727) and Elite Series pro Greg DiPalma (726) hold the top three spots heading into the last tournament.
Anglers will take to the waters of Pennsylvania’s Susquehanna River October 7-8 for one last chance to qualify for the championship. Competitors can register for the event through Sept. 29 at Bassmaster.com.
