Cats Incredible Catfish Tournament & Cats on the Red Classic III


Recommended Posts

15th annual Cats Incredible Catfish Tournament

The Cats Incredible Catfish Tournament already one-third full & filling up fast!

Less than a week after entry forms became available, the 15th annual Cats Incredible Catfish Tournament already is one-third full. As of Thursday, the East Grand Forks Chamber of Commerce had received 50 entries. The Aug. 10-11 tournament is limited to 150 two-person teams, with entry on a first-come, first-served basis. In recent years, the tournament has filled up several months before the actual competition.

For more information, contact the East Grand Forks Chamber of Commerce at 773-7481.

The Cats on the Red Classic III

Organizers of a Manitoba catfish tournament that was discontinued in 2000 have resurrected the event, and are planning another competition this summer.

The Cats on the Red Classic III is scheduled for Aug. 17-18 on the Red River near Lockport, Man. - the week after the East Grand Forks tournament. The event will be headquartered out of Cats on the Red Resort in Lockport.

According to Dan Sernyk of Winnipeg, one of the event's organizers, the tournament will be run a little differently than previous competitions. Instead of total weight, Sernyk said, tournament winners will be based on total length. Teams can measure six catfish each day.

Manitoba regulations require the immediate release of all catfish 24 inches or longer.

In previous Cats on the Red tournaments, organizers hired officials to weigh in fish on the water. That represented a considerable expense, Sernyk said.

Under the new format, Sernyk said, each two-person team has to provide a third member, who will be assigned to a different boat as a judge during the tournament.

Teams that don't provide a third person will have to pay an additional $50 to cover the cost of hiring a judge, Sernyk said.

Entry fee is $175 (U.S. funds) or $250 Canadian. For more information, contact Sernyk at [email protected], or Stu McKay of Cats on the Red at (204) 757-9876.

A great time folks!!

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
