I'm pleased to announce that plans for the 2003 "Cats On The Red Catfish Challenge"
are now offically underway.
Dallas Stevenson a life long resident of Winnipeg, Manitoba has announced his full intentions of organizing this incredible event! Way to go Dallas!
Some preliminary information: The event will be held out of Cats On The Red, Located
in Lockport, Manitoba.
The event will be held on August 16th & 17th 2003.
The event will be limited to the "first" 75 entries.
Entries will be based on two person teams.
Entry fee for the event will be $300.00 U.S.
These are just a few preliminary items that will be announced at this time. The idea behind this announcement was to inform the public that there will be yet another incrdible cat fishing tournament in "PARADISE" in 2003. How good is that!!!

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.
