The Last Chance
Updated: Mar 8
Find out everything you need to know about the upcoming Last Chance Event!
Win and you're in!
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.
But wait, it's not going to be easy...
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!?
