Kayak Bass Series Cancels KBS Classic set for Lake Fork later this month.

By Vance McCullough

October is here and with it comes cooler weather and shallower bites. Few anglers will be disappointed with that. For a number of kayak anglers who had qualified to fish the Kayak Bass Series Classic on Lake Fork, however, disappointment has indeed come.

The tourney, slated for October 12th-14th, has been cancelled.

Kori Whitchurch, who fishes with Kayak Anglers of Missouri, won KBS Angler of the Year for 2018.

Terry L. Manley posted this statement on the KBS Facebook page on behalf of himself and his partner Leigh Sullivan Roberge:

“Due to circumstances beyond our control we are going to cancel the KBS Classic. Everyone that paid for the classic will get a full refund and those that paid a membership in the last 30 days will also get a refund. Leigh Sullivan Roberge will be doing the refunds over the next few days.

“We are truly sorry, Leigh and I have put over 4 years and well over $200,000.00 into the KBS with no return, we have lost everything trying to keep going because we thought eventually it would grow enough to gain back just our loss.

“God Bless you all…!”
