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!!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.
