2019 Catfish Contest
« on: April 06, 2019, 07:54:23 AM »
OK, this is a straight up catfish throw-down.  We all can't get to the beach during the summer when the shark fishing is slow and we all have ponds around us that makes it easy for us to get out and fish for cats during the summer doldrums. 
Rules are super simple and prize(s) will be awarded at the end.  (Prizes are not acquired yet, but there will be something put together by the end of the year for the winner.  I will announce stuff as I receive it)

Rules

Starts April 06th, 2019  - Ends December 31st, 2019

- Catch from a Boat, Pier, Shore, or anything that floats

- Heaviest Fish wins (Weight) but still want tape shot if available (so bring your scale or use the one at the local lakes ranger stations)

- Does NOT have to be CPR.  These are mostly stocked fish and a catfish fry is encouraged, although we totally support if you are CPR here.

- Any Catfish Counts (from the state of California Only) - Channel Cat, Blue Cat, Flathead Cat, Brown Bullhead, Yellow Bullhead etc.

- You have to catch the fish... no hand offs to kids or wife and calling it your own if you didn't reel it in.

- P-Soul members and mods are the only ones eligible for this contest, so if you are not a member, be sure to join up and at least post a "hello" message in the general forum. 


- Pictures are mandatory to be counted.



Simple.  Just make sure you have a tape measure, scale and camera for the picture shot's and we have a freshwater game going!

Last years champion... EricH.....

Put in request with the day job, challenges are legion but worst is you need to bring all gear and the jungle plane is strict about 33 lb baggage limit. All hardware needs to be black because anything shiny attracts piranha.

Have 2 travel rods but Okuma makes some in heavy duty levels.

Wow Jim!  This sounds like a trip right up your alley!

Take LOTS of pics!

My best so far during the contest, but Eric H leads with an 11.37# Channel!  More than double!
