Angler of the Year

Angler of the Year Points are awarded at each event as such:

  • 1st Place – 100 pts
  • 2nd Place – 99 pts
  • 3rd Place – 98 pts
  • 10th Place – 91 pts
  • 100th Place – 1 pt

Points will be awarded to the top 100 places at each event, but only to those anglers who check in at least one fish. If you zero for the day you will not be awarded AOY points.  Final standings will be determined by taking the top 3 events of 4 for each angler + points from the invitation-only Championship event.

Qualification for 2018 Championship

For 2018, there are multiple ways to qualify for the Championship event:

  • Score points in 3 of 4 events
  • Win any of the 4 regular season events
  • Top 10 in AOY points at the end of the regular season
  • WILDCARD: At the end of event 4, we will draw two anglers that did not otherwise qualify for the championship.  If the drawn angler cannot participate, they’ll be allowed to transfer their entry to another angler of their choice as long as that angler has participated in a 2018 Indiana Kayak Anglers event.

Prizes for 2018 Angler of the Year and the invitation-only Championship event are still being finalized. They will be posted here once available.
