Welcome to the Icebowl! Come January every year the best catfish anglers in the country battle it out on Kerr Lake/Buggs Island in the frigid weather that few bare to brave. The Icebowl is a one day tournament and is open to the public. There is also another side to the tournament, The battle between Virginia and North Carolina. Kerr Lake is divided between the two states, and both states think they are top dog on the water. The state that has the most weight will carry the VA vs NC trophy back to their home state to be displayed in public. You do not have to be from these states to fish the Icebowl, it is open to anyone.
