Tournament Information:

Kerr Lake straddles the border of Virginia and North Carolina and either license is accepted.  We encourage you to bring your family to this championship, as there is a lot for family to do at this event, and it is a beautiful area in Virginia.

Here is a great source of information about this event and what you can do while you are at the championship:

https://visitmeckva.com/american-fishing-tour-2021-national-championship/

Kerr Lake has a special limit sizing of bass so this is especially important to read and understand as we will allow the Kerr Lake limit.

The rule reads simply as this: (Source: https://dwr.virginia.gov/waterbody/buggs-island-lake-kerr-reservoir/#regulations )

Black Bass (Largemouth, Smallmouth & Spotted)

  • 5 per day in aggregate
  • Only 2 of 5 bass less than 14 inches can be kept.

So, it is particularly important to understand the following:

  1. All bass weighed in must be over 12 inches.
  2. You may only have two bass in possession that are over 12 and under 14 inches, the remaining three in a limit must be 14 inches or greater.
