Also: The Kansas City Team Tour was created by fishermen for fishermen. The KCTT offers over 100 percent payback at the tour level events. We provide a different format than what was being offered in our area. We all like to fish, and fish hard, but the travel, time away from work/family, and expenses can become quite exhausting throughout the year. That being said, we still wanted to fish in a highly competitive, yet welcoming environment for higher payouts.
