I retired from the city six years ago. Our Economic Development Corporation started the tournament several years ago as we had a goal to attract a national hotel chain (they ended up in Emory). The budget for the sales tax fund was $4,000 to cabelas and we had national exposure through their tournament magazine, websites, and back then, a tv show about catfishing. I don't know what the EDC paid this year but it has been $4,000 As of last year.
With no national hotel brand and no national food franchises, it is very difficult for the EDC to recover that investment. We know the tournament has brought people here who would not have come otherwise and the lake still holds the King Kat weigh in record of 213 pounds.
If smoky or any other tournament director has a better idea, I encourage you to contact the EDC and find out when a proposal needs to be submitted
A few local guides have managed to monetize the catfish population here, but so far, no one else has
Never fished the tournament, rather be chasing crappie in february

Saw something this weekend that didn’t make sense to me.
Some Oklahoma guys that are supposedly fishing cabelas had a fifty and maybe the new youth record keeping the fish in a tank with no water Sunday. Kept some big ones a couple of weeks ago too. I would think they would at least cpr till after the tourney.

I was planning on fishing this event with my brother and I blew a powerhead on my Optimax. My brother didn't think I would be back in service in time so he decided to work that Saturday and take off next Saturday to fish with Tom. I just ordered a new Honda outboard and should be back on the water in time. Now I just have to decide whether to skip the tournament or find another partner. noidea
