A Look Inside Catfish Tournaments - The Best Catfish Tournaments In The USA

Apr 27, 2008
Catfish tournaments are a great way to get out there with other anglers, have a good time catfish fishing, and maybe take home a cash prize or trophy. Most catfish tournaments are held every year in various locations throughout the States. Some are regional, and some are nationwide. Usually, you have to qualify first in local tournaments before you can go on to the big ones, but it's not too tough to qualify. It just takes some good catfishing technique and a little luck. You can usually qualify through your local catfish club. Here are some of the nation's most exciting and most popular catfish fishing tournaments.

Cabela's King Kat Tournament

Cabela's King Kat Tournament is held every year, and gives anglers a chance to show their stuff. Anglers also have a chance to win the $60,000 prize, which ain't too shabby either. This is the first ever "classic" competitive catfish angling tournament, and it is sponsored by rod maker Cabela.

There are two ways to get into the King Kat Tournament. One is to qualify through a catfish club that participates in the tournament. The other is to fish in one of the King Kat National Qualifying Tournaments that are held all over the country in various locations during the spring and summer months.

The prizes include cash, boats and trailers to those who catch the biggest fish. But, let's be honest, the real thrill is to just get out there with all the other pro's and catch those fish! If you'd like more information, check out the King Kat Tournament website at www.kingkatusa.com.

Southern Catfishermen Association Catfish Trail

The SCA is an organization devoted to promoting the sport of catfishing, and they have tournaments all over the country every year. The tournaments are held all over the south, especially in Tennessee and Alabama, where some of the biggest cats can be found. The entry fee is $125 for each boat, and the grand prize for the biggest fish is $1,000. There are different divisions that you can enter. A basic membership to the SCA is only $20 a year, but entry into the Classic Tournament is $200. For more information on the SCA Catfish Trail, check out the SCA website at www.southerncats.com.

American Catfish Anglers Tournament Series

You might have heard of this one. Word gets around about the A.C.A.T.S. The organization started eight years ago in the great catfish fishing lands of Oklahoma, and now they have tournaments there and in several other states. A.C.A.T.S. tournaments bring catfish anglers from all around, and it's a great way to get together with other anglers and have a good time. There are also prizes, of course. You can find more information about the tournaments, as well as information about joining an A.C.A.T.S. chapter, on their website, www.catfishangler.com.
