King cat trail coming back 2-17. Expect 45 MPH north winds that weekend bolt


Hooking a fish is like playing string with a cat. The exact size, shape, color of string matters less than how you wiggle it- and little cats are easier to fool than big ones. John Gierach

Sounds great. I learned all the things not to do in those winds last year. I'll start figuring out where I'm going to put my trophy.

Probably pass on this one this year. Last year was high $300 entry for a shot at about 3500. This year it's really high $395. That would be ok if it was a 2 day, Or if the payout was better.

If trlrman is cooking steak the night before the tourney, i will slip down from Oklahoma and donate my money. Think this will make year 6 for us. We look forward to Cabelas weekend every year!

Are they trying to kill the tournament or make it bigger? What a joke, they already get 6 or 7k from the city....now they are going to up the entry fee? I doubt they even add it to the payout... loco I wish the chamber would give the $ to a local guy and let him get something going like the Possum Kingdom tournament. It's a shame you can get 120 boats on Possum Kingdom with over 30k cash given away but "Cabelas" comes to Tawakoni and you have 40 boats with maybe 7k given away. I have personally fished this tournament 6 or 7 times now but im thinking about opting out this year!

Probably not but I like to bitch........







I'm gonna miss her....

Jerry you should get with the chamber and submit a proposal. A few years ago Kody's Papa from this forum helped me out and I was able to submit an offer when I was running tournaments. I offered to pay out their $ 100% and only take 20% of the entry fees, I was turned down because they like the "cabelas" brand in town. However I think at this point they have realized it's not going to get any bigger with them jokers running the show! So you might have a shot....
