The 2020 Battle on the Border

 Overview

The 2020 Battle on the Border will take place at Kerr Lake. This year, a new club joins the event - the Central Carolina Kayak Fishing Club (CCKF).

CKA Tournament of Champions anglers can double dip and register for both events, and we are treating this event as an “Open,” which is to say it is not restricted to members of the three host trails.

A.    Lake Info

Kerr Lake is a massive reservoir located on the Roanoke River on the North Carolina/Virginia border. It is northeast of Falls Lake, just off I-85.  The lake was built shortly after WWII and it is one of the region's premier Largemouth Bass, Catfish and Striped Bass fisheries. It covers more than 77 surface miles of water; for contrast, Lake Norman covers fewer than 50 surface miles. In sum, Kerr is one of the largest impoundments on the Southeast, and will challenge anglers to break down big water. Want to test your skills against a massive lake? This is it.

The lake has dozens of public boat ramps and marinas, as well as affordable camping. If you camp at the lake, be sure your campsite is open to the public and that it allows 24 hour access, so you can get out in the morning to fish. 

B.    Boundaries, Launches and Rules

The event boundaries are as follows:

  • The Western boundary on the Dan River is the 360 bridge in South Boston.
  • The Northern boundary on the Staunton River is the 360 bridge, too.
  • The Eastern boundary is the Kerr dam. No fishing below the dam.

The tournament is a multi-launch event and all public launches are available to anglers.

For a list of park managed launches and NC Wildlife launches, see this link: https://www.ncparks.gov/kerr-lake-state-recreation-area/activities

Please be sure to obtain a valid N.C. fishing license. North Carolina has a license reciprocity agreement with Virginia for Kerr Lake, so you can fish the Virginia side with your N.C. license.

Please follow parking regulations practice good ramp etiquette at the lake's public launches.

E. Payouts and Qualifying Opportunities
