Hobie Worlds Qualifier

Kayak anglers participating in the 2018 Striper Cup are invited to compete in the Hobie Kayak Qualifier. This tournament-within-a-tournament takes advantage of the iAngler application for submitting striped bass caught and released during the Striper Cup tournament. Scoring is based on the total length of the 10 longest fish submitted per angler.
