LSFC all-night Catfish Tournament this weekend

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

CORRECTIONVILLE - The Little Sioux Fishing Club of Correctionville will hold its second "all-night" Catfish Tournament of the summer beginning on Saturday night.

Registration is from 4-6 p.m. Saturday at Little Sioux Park south of Correctionville. Weigh-in will be Sunday morning at Little Sioux Park. All teams must weigh their own fish.

As in past tournaments, this will be a team tournament. A team may consist of up to four members, but may be as small as a one-man team. Entry fee is $5 per team member. Payback will be based on the number of participants. All teams must register themselves, and they must be registered before they start to fish.

To be eligible for one of the five cash prizes, a team must weigh in a stringer of five catfish. Minimum length on the fish weighed in is 15 inches. The fish must be caught in the stretch of the Little Sioux River from Cherokee to Smithland, or its tributaries. All fish must be caught on rod and reel. All other fishing and boat regulations apply.

All stringers must be weighed in by 10 a.m. Sunday morning. No late weigh-ins will be accepted.

In addition to the tournament for the heaviest stringer of catfish, there also will be a tournament for the heaviest carp caught by an individual. This tournament will run at the same time as the catfish tournament. The entry fee for that contest is $1 per person. The carp must be weighed in by 10 a.m. Sunday.

All LSFC members who have fish to weigh in for the all-year "Big Fish" Contest, fish can be weighed with Don Haahr at Southwood, Gary Bollmeyer, Bill Forbes, or at Little Sioux Park.
