Cabela's King Kat Tournament Results for Lexington, Missouri at Cabela's

Cabela's King Kat Tournament Results for Lexington, Missouri

Author: Larry Crecelius

This past Saturday October 16th the Cabela's King Kat Tournament Trail held the last qualifying event of the year leading up to the king of catfish events, the Cabela's King Kat Classic. This year's classic will be held on the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway at Columbus, Mississippi November 12-13, 2010.

Fishing on the Missouri River was much slower than predicted with the river only dropping around 3 inches from Friday through Saturday, but as always some of these anglers still managed to find good fish to place in the event.

Top 5 Results
Taking first place was the team of Gary Ryan of Columbia, Missouri and Justin Cook of New Franklin, Missouri with a total weight of 47.9 pounds and earning $2,500.00. Gary and Justin  were fishing near Lexington targeting rock banks in 25-32 feet of water using skipjack.
In second place was the Wellington, Missouri team of Shannon Scott and Blake Waterworth with a weight of 43.55 pounds and earning $1,250.00. Shannon and Blake were fishing 6 to 7 miles upriver in 15 feet of water using cut carp and shad. Shannon and Blake also had big fish of the event which hit on shad earning the team an additional $500.00.
Third place went to the team of Wayne Stevens of Norborne, Missouri and Eric McRoy of Warrenton, Missouri  weighing in 15.65 pounds and earning $750.00. Wayne and Eric were fishing down river near Myer Island in 4-8 feet of water using worms.
Bill and Jim Newingham of Patterson, Illinois took fourth place with a weight of 15.4 pounds.
In fifth place was the team of Roger Gerloff of Jefferson City, Missouri and Marty Gerloff of Chamois, Missouri with a total weight of 10.15 pounds.
