The Border City Classic was started in 2011 by members of the Canadian Kayak Anglers to help fuel the growth of kayak fishing within Southern Ontario. Since then it has grown to become one of  premier kayak fishing events in Canada and the Midwest. 

The BCC is designed to satisfy both the ultra competitive kayak angler as well as the 1st timer and family crowd. We randomly draw for the major donated prizes at the end of the event, along with trophies and cash awards given to the successful placing participants, and a special US vs. Canada Challenge Cup stacking up the best five fish from both countries.

During the event, anglers fish for Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass using the Catch-Photo-Release method and measuring the fish for total length. They may launch from any published launch in the US and Canada, along the Detroit River and Lake St. Clair. In 2015 the BCC went live using the iAngler APP where fish are loaded up through either the participants smart phone or uploaded into the app through onsite desktop computers. With the diversity of our competition's divisions, all anglers of varying skill level have a chance at winning in some way. The 2018 BCC will once again be a two day event, June 23rd and 24th. A one day event for the recreation angler, will run concurrently with Day one of the two day event on Saturday the 23rd of June.

The Border City Classic will now be an "Ontario Kayak Bass Trail Event"  OKBT
