Cats Incredible Catfish Tournament & Cats on the Red Classic III

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!!

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
