Cabela's King Kat Tournament Results for the Mississippi River at New Madrid, Missouri

Author: Larry Crecelius

This past Saturday September 18, 2010 the Cabela’s King Kat Tournament Trail held a qualifying event on the Mississippi River at New Madrid, Missouri. These anglers were competing not only for cash and prizes, but the opportunity to qualify for the 2010 Cabela’s King Kat Classic to be held in October at a site to be announced.    

The New Madrid event has always been a big hit on the trail with many local activities planned in conjunction with the tournament filling the streets of New Madrid for the daylong event.
Top 5 Results
Taking first place with an overwhelming margin was the team of Gary Haynes of Troy, Tennessee and David Coughhlin of Jackson, Tennessee with 5 fish totaling 193.75 pounds and earning $2,500.00. Of the 5 fish brought to the scales one was big fish of the event with a 67.55 pound blue catfish. Gary and David were fishing by #8 island in 70-90 feet of water using skipjack to lure in these monstrous fish. All total the team caught 9 fish of the day which earned them an additional $500.00.

The city of New Madrid had tons of events going on during the event.  The first ever Little Miss King Kat Beauty Pageant, a catfish calling contest, and a wonderful kids fishing rodeo, that had 55 kids enter.  We would like to thank the New Madrid chamber of commerce, and Martindale Chevrolet for making this special event possible.
