KBF College Team Division





KBF College Teams

The KBF has developed this division to provide an avenue for College Teams to advance to the KBF State Championship and the TBF Semi Finals


*  College Team Members will join a new Statewide College Club and will pay $50 dues per person.

*  Standard KBF rules will apply except that this will be a Team format.

*  Teams are eligible to fish at any of the 24 divisional tournaments.

*There will be no entry fee and Teams will be fishing against other College Teams.

*  Teams that fish at any 2 divisional tournaments will be invited to the KBF State Championship and will be fishing against other College Teams.

*  There will be no entry fees to participate in these events.

*  The KBF will send the winning College Team to the TBF Semi-Finals against Tennessee and the KBF will pay the $200 Boater and $100 Co-Angler entry fee.

*The Second place Team at the KBF State Championship will be invited to the TBF Semi-Finals but will be responsible for their entry fee.

*At the Semi Finals each Team member will fish as Boater and Co-Angler separately and will be paired with a random TBF member.

*  If the Boater is the overall winner at the Semi-Finals they will have their boat wrapped (Donated   by Signs Now).

*  College Teams may enter the existing optional big fish side pot.

*  College Team members may enter the Adult division simply by paying the corresponding Adult entry fee and follow the Adult division rules.

Fishing License Expemption for Guests on Private Pond

Fishing License Exemption for Guests of Owners of Private Ponds

A request has been made by Addia Wuchner (R-Florence) and Marie Racer (R-McKee) to amend the statute requiring licenses to fish private ponds by all but the land owner, his family and Tennant’s. The proposal would allow guests to also fish without a license. It is seen as a support of private land owner’s rights.

BR 257 now is in the TOURISM AND RECREATION COMMITTEE of the legislature. The committee is chaired by Tommy Turner (R- Somerset).

11% of the current license sales is to anglers that only fish private ponds. Revenues will drop by about $1.1 million. To maintain the current fisheries program would require a 67% increase in license cost to those still purchasing license. In Kentucky, anglers and hunters pay the full price of operating the programs with no funds from taxes or general funds.

Though currently proposed to only exemption fishing, it could easily mushroom into hunting which would tank the entire Fish and Wildlife department.

Please contact your legislators. You can find your legislators and their contact information at www.lrc.ky.gov

Attached are the introduction by the sponsors, talking points, and the actual proposed revision to the statute.    Click here
