Hey guys, I’m brand new to this site and thought it would be fun to have a little friendly competition. I’m not sure if you guys have done anything like this before or not but I was thinking we could start the competition/tournament Saturday morning at 6:00am and have it go through 11:59pm Sunday night. We can hash out the rules but I was thinking you can upload your 2 biggest catfish from the weekend to forum and include a picture of your tag name in it to show that it was caught during this weekend. Whoever catches the 2 biggest fish wins (or whatever everyone agrees on). Of course, all you get is bragging rights but is there anything better! We can tweak the rules if you guys are interested but thought I would get something started. Does anyone have any interest in playing along?

Probably have to have different divisions, such as guides and us wannabee's that might catch only one catfish a month!
It's kind of a cool idea if you can get people to agree! cheers
Welcome to the forum! welcome


Just one more cast!

Since I was the one to lay down the challenge I felt like I had to have some time on the water this weekend. Any excuse to get out, right?!?! Check out the 33lb blue i caught (video link below). I apologize for the quality but I was using my phone and I am fishing out of the canoe. https://youtu.be/gTxbJIfF_Hs

Hey TFF, I guess I took round one since no one else participated. I plan on putting up another challenge towards the month or beginning of next month. I appreciate the feedback I received and will make sure I lay down more specific rules moving forward. I also attach the video link to the 33lb blue cat I caught yesterday - https://youtu.be/gTxbJIfF_Hs.

What rig and bait was you using.

Thanks Dwight! I typically fish 3 poles all with different setups until I find out what working. This particular fish was caught using a slip float in only 7 feet of water. I was only down about 4 feet. The majority of big fish I've caught lately have all been in relatively shallow water. I was using cut gizzard shad. Honestly, I’ve gotten several recently in that 10 to 25lb range using that exact setup. I have several videos I can share if anyone’s interested in seeing them.

Hi cvitale,

This is the guy that met you at the boat ramp on Saturday (8/3) morning, and you taught me how to throw the net for baits. How many did you catch that day? Thanks again for the lesson.
