Angler of the Year points will be distributed after each main season MAKB tournament, excluding the KBF Trail Event on Lake Winnipesaukee. Points are based on individual tournament rankings—50 points for 1st place, 48 for 2nd, 47 for 3rd, etc. Anglers who compete but do not catch/submit any fish will receive 7 points.

At the end of the year, the top ranking angler will receive the first annual MAKB Angler of the Year trophy. The top 5 ranked KBF members will be awarded a qualifying slot for the 2018 KBF National Championship, which will be held on the world famous bass factory Kentucky Lake and where the top-placing angler will receive an unprecedented minimum payout of $100,000!
