The Cabela's King Kat Tournament Trail To Hit The Waters Of The Missouri River At Lexington, Missouri at Cabela's

The Cabela's King Kat Tournament Trail To Hit The Waters Of The Missouri River At Lexington, Missouri

Author: Larry Crecelius

"Third time's a charm!"

Coming up October 16th the Cabela's King Kat Tournament Trail will hit the waters of the Missouri River at Lexington, Missouri. This is the rescheduled event from May 15th then rescheduled for July 10th when high waters caused the cancellation of the original event once again.  

This will also be the last opportunity for anglers to compete for cash, prizes and a chance to advance to the Cabela's King Kat Classic to be held November 12th & 13th on the waters of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway at Columbus, Mississippi.

(Guaranteed payback of $5,000.00 to the top 15% of the field)

The Cabela’s King Kat Tournament Trail is the opportunity for catfish anglers and clubs to advance to a new level with a major payback and media recognition for their abilities. The trail is a team event. Teams will consist of one or two persons with one exception. A third person may accompany the team provided the third person is under 16 years of age or over 65 years of age. Entry fees for these qualifier tournaments are $200.00 per team.
The tournament weigh-in will be held at the Riverfront Park in Lexington. Tournament hours are 6:30 AM until 3:00 PM. All anglers must be in weigh-in line by 4:00 PM with a 5 fish limit per team. To help preserve the sport only live fish will be weighed in and all fish will be released after the tournament. For a complete list of rules phone or visit our website listed below.
Participants may enter by mail or at the late registration to be held at the Lexington Riverfront Park from 5:00-7:00pm or at the mandatory meeting at 5:30am tournament morning at the weigh-in site. Deadline for mail in entries is 14 days prior to the event. All entries after that date will pay a $25.00 late fee. The top 20 teams at each qualifying event will qualify for the Cabela's King Kat Classic. Also at each qualifying event field test products from national sponsors will be drawn for following the tournament weigh-in.

The Lexington Community Betterment Association would like to welcome all the Cabela's King Kat anglers and their guest to the area. For more information on the area call: 660-259-4711 or  visit their website at:
