APRIL EVENTS - 2022
[UPDATED] April is jam-packed with tournaments! Here are the links and info on all the upcoming events.
The action gets going right away in April, with two series from GRBY and two different on-site events the first weekend of the month. Below, check out the full breakdown of all the events this month.
MAR 31 - APR 04 | GRBY - NYONA | SULLIVAN LAKE
Things start with a Bang in April, as the GRBY Sullivan and Nyona series open up Thursday, March 31st through April 4th. These will be very competitive events. Based on some chatter within the community, it appears many anglers are signing up for these, which will mean good payouts and serious HKB TOP25 points to be earned.
APR 01 - 30 | KBF CHALLENGE SERIES - IN
We all saw just the impossible done in March! Can anyone challenge the newly set record, made by Glenn Landstrom? There is one thing for sure - you don't have a chance unless you sign up. With all the events and fishing to be had in April, signing up for the Month-Long event is a no-brainer. Indiana has been pulling some great numbers for these events for the past 2-3 years and we expect this one to be no different.
APRIL 02 | HKB LAST CHANCE EVENT
The HKB Last Chance event gives qualifying anglers an opportunity to fish for a large cash payout and more importantly, a final chance to qualify for the 2022 HKB State Championship on Lake Wawasee in Syracuse, Indiana. The winner of this event will join the 14 other qualified anglers representing the Hoosier States kayak bass fishing clubs, Indiana Kayak Angler (IKA), Southern Indiana Yak Anglers Klub (SIYAK), Grass Root Bass Yakin - IN (GRBY), and the KBF Challenge Series. The 14 anglers who have already qualified for the 2022 HKB State Championship are also eligible for this event! Meaning, if any one of those 14 anglers wins this event, they will have blocked the rest of the field from getting in!
So the question is.... Can you beat the best of the best from the 2021 season and cash your ticket to the 2022 HKB State Championship, where you will get to fish not only for the title but also for a grand prize of over $2000 in cash and prizes from our amazing partners!?
APRIL 03 | CKF - BROOKVILLE LAKE
Our Neighbors in Ohio are coming back to Indiana for another event on Brookville Lake! This is an amazing opportunity for Hoosier Anglers to make some new fishing buddies and experience the great CKF community.
APRIL 07 - 11 | GRBY - MONROE | W. BOGGS | WHITE RIVER
This is going to be an epic weekend of bass fishing with 3 great series from GRBY. Monroe should be charged up and ready to bust wide open, West Boggs is going to blow some minds, and we all know what the White River can do!
APRIL 14 - 18 | BLUE GRASS | SUMMIT LAKE
Here we go again!! Big Bass Factories, Summit Lake and Blue Grass FWA, are back for event number 2 for each series. Get ready to see some monster, pre-spawn largemouth caught over the 5 day tournament period.
APRIL 16 | SIYAK / KBF - GLENDALE FWA (MAXED OUT)
The first event of the 2022 SIYAK season and the KBF Ambassador Series will take place April 16th in the Glendale FWA. Due to FWA regulations, this event had a 25 angler max, which has already been reached. Anglers wanting to fish this event can sign up for the waiting list (details available in the SIYAK Facebook group).
APRIL 21-25 | GRBY - BRUSH CREEK | SULLIVAN | TIPPY
GRBY Brush Creek and Sullivan series both hold their second event of the season, and we get to see the all new, Tippecanoe series blast off as well on April 21-25. The Tippy is the second river series introduced into the GRBY format. Anglers in the north and river smallie junkies are amped up about this series. Going to be some great turnouts and big smallies caught in this series!
APRIL 23 | IKA / KBF - LAKE WAWASEE
Indiana Kayak Anglers heads back to Lake Wawasee for the 2022 IKA season kickoff. This will also be the second KBF Ambassador Series Event of the season, providing anglers with a guaranteed $500 1st place bonus and custom hardware from Ketch Outdoors. Anglers finishing in the top 10% will earn a 2022 KBF National Championship Qualification!
APRIL 23-24 | HKB STATE CHAMPIONSHIP
The Yak Attack HKB 2022 State Championship, presented by KBF & Fishing Chaos, takes place April 23-24 in conjunction with the IKA/KBF event. Qualified anglers will compete in a two-day event for the title of State Champion!
APR 28 - MAY 02 | GRBY - NYONA | MONROE
April ends with two great events from GRBY. One on Nyona, in Northern Indiana, and another on Lake Monroe, in south-central Indiana.
