All permits have been approved! Barring any unforeseen circumstances, this is our 2018 schedule.

Apr 14, 7–3 - Santuit Pond (Mashpee)
Apr 28, 7–3 - Dark Brook Reservoir (Auburn)
May 19, 6–2 - Agawam Mill Pond (Wareham)
May 26, 6–2 - Great Herring Pond (Plymouth)
Jun 16, 6–2 - Snipatuit Pond (Rochester)
Jul 1, 6–2 - Ponkapoag Pond (Canton)
Jul 7, 6–2 - Taunton River (Taunton)
Jul 21, 6–2 - Charles River (Waltham)
Aug 4, 6–2 - A-1/Stump Pond (Westborough)
Aug 18, 4–12 - Whitehall Reservoir (Hopkinton) *
Sep 23, 6–2 - Neponset Reservoir (Foxboro)
Sep 29, 6–2 - Lake Cochituate (Wayland)
Oct 6, 7–3 - Norton Reservoir (Norton)
Oct 20, 7–3 - Singletary Lake (Sutton) **

* Annual night tournament.

** First annual Tournament of Champions.

Next year's trail is laid out so that it does not conflict with the number of KBF events up this way in 2018. If you're interested in fishing those tournaments, the dates are as follows:

Jun 2 - Lake George (New York)
Jun 9 - Cobbossee Lake (Maine)
Jun 23 - Lake Oneida (New York)
Jul 14 - Peconic River System (New York)
July 28 - Susquehanna River (Pennsylvania)
Aug 25 - Chautauqua Lake (New York)
Sep 1 - Charles River Basin (Massachusetts) ***
Sep 14/15 - Lake Erie (Pennsylvania)

*** KBF Trail Event hosted by MAKB.

The Lake Erie event is one of five new KBF Regional Opens for 2018. It's a two-day event, Friday and Saturday. The others are single-day Trail Events.

The KBF State Challenges will run from May to September in 2018. Chad Hoover has mentioned the possibility of starting the state challenge series earlier (April) and ending it later (October), though only the challenges between May and September would count toward AOY.

If they do not start the series in April, we will likely host our own state challenge in April. We will mirror the KBF challenges—same rules, cost, etc.—so that anyone new to the challenges can get a little experience under their belt.

The KBF Trail Event that we're hosting will take place on the Charles River on September 1. The boundaries will be from Millis to the Esplanade in Boston, roughly 50 to 60 miles of water. Should be awesome!

A few other things...

We will be using TourneyX for all our events again next year.

The ramp at Cochituate will be closed for renovation starting Sep 1. It'll remain closed for the rest of the year, so that'll be good for us. It'll be a roadrunner event, but I'm hoping to get approval to launch from the beach next to the ramp as well.

The Taunton River and Charles River tournaments (including the Trail Event, of course) will also be roadrunner events.

Our annual night tournament will likely be at Whitehall on August 18.

The Singletary Lake tournament will be our first ever Tournament of Champions. We're still banging out some of the details, but to qualify for this tournament you must win one of the other thirteen throughout the season.

Initially we weren't going to allow roll-downs (meaning, if someone wins two tournaments, we roll that slot down to the next angler in that second tournament), but after discussing it with Donald, Bruce, and Mike, we decided to allow them.

Speaking of Mike, he is now on the MAKB staff and will be working toward bringing sponsors aboard so that we can offer some additional perks and prizes to everyone. =)

We will have a new payout structure for next year. Don is working on it now.

I'm sure there will be some other announcements coming, but we'll get to that.

If you have any questions, just ask. You could also check out our website or join our Facebook group (links below). =)

OK, I'm back.
I was thinking they are two different lakes, but a search says they are one in the same. So, I'm back to my original message.

We will be basing our operations from Lakeside Motel on Cobbosseecontee Lake from June 3rd to June 10th for our 14TH NE BBC Rally with our tourney on June 9th.

Really sorry for the confusion on my part.

Make up your mind! Haha.

Kidding. It's all good.

Doesn't Maine only allow CPR tourneys during that time? Thought traditional tournaments weren't allowed during the spawn.

If anyone is interested, registration for our Knockout Series is open. We're currently up to 39 paid anglers, looking for 48 right now. If we hit that, which I know we well, we will shoot for 64 overall.

For those who may not know what this is, the Knockout Series is a bracketed, one-on-one tournament series. Anglers are randomly paired prior to Round 1, which begins on April 1. Once paired, those anglers then coordinate with each other a one-on-one tournament (i.e. match) on a day, time, and lake/pond of their choosing. The winners of those matches move on to Round 2.

Entry fee is a one-time payment of $50 (non-refundable after March 14, 2018). The series will consist of five or six rounds, and each round will last five or six weeks, depending on how many anglers sign up.

We are looking for 32, 48, or 64 anglers.

For complete details and FAQs, check out the following link:

We will not hold spots. If you want to compete in this year's series, pay as soon as possible. If you wish to pay with a check or money order, message me for my address. Otherwise, you can send payment directly through this PayPal link:

Looking forward to another great, competitive year!
