With his second place finish at the very first B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series tournament on Logan Martin Lake last week, our buddy Mark Edwards got to experience something many of us never thought possible or only dreamed about: walking across the Bassmaster Classic stage and holding a trophy high!

Massachusetts Kayak Bassin’ is proud to announce that we are now an official B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series club, offering anglers their shot at bass fishing glory and a chance to stand on the 2021 Bassmaster Classic stage like so many legends have in the past.

For the 2020 season, all ten of our regular-season events will be qualifying events for the Massachusetts B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series State Championship, which will take place on October 10 at Lake Nippenicket. The top three finishers in each event will qualify!

In addition, the top fifteen anglers in our 2020 Angler of the Year race will also qualify.

To be eligible, you must meet all of the requirements listed on the registration page linked below before the start of any qualifying event.

Potentially forty-five anglers will qualify, though that is unlikely, as there will be no roll-downs and no doubt some overlap there in the top fifteen overall and the top three finishers at events throughout the season.

For instance, if this applied to our 2019 season, excluding the spots earned by previous qualifiers, only 21 anglers would have qualified to fish the championship.

Of those who do qualify for the state championship, the top five finishers at that event will have earned their chance to fish the B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series National Championship—which will coincide with the Bassmaster Classic—in 2021!

Who wants to stand upon that stage like a legend?

Follow this link for more details (or click the B.A.S.S. Nation Kayak Series link from the menu at the top of this page). The link to register is at the bottom of that page.

The Massachusetts B.A.S.S. Nation awards banquet is this coming Saturday. Your state dues covers entry into this event. Would be great to see some of you there!

If you have any questions, just ask.

(And sorry this took so long to post and there’s not much time between now and the banquet. I was waiting on them for something, and they were waiting on me for something. Little confusion there, so I’m sorry about that.)
