LSFC hosts All-Night Catfish Tournament

Monday, July 11, 2011

CORRECTIONVILLE - The Little Sioux Fishing Club of Correctionville will hold its first "All-Night Catfish Tournament" beginning Saturday night. Registration is from 4-6 p.m. at Little Sioux Park south of Correctionville.

Weigh-in will be Sunday morning at Little Sioux Park, and all teams must weigh their own fish.

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 must be registered before they start fishing.

To be eligible for one of the five cash prizes, a team must weigh in a stringer of five catfish. Minimum length of the fish weighed is 15 inches. The fish must be caught in 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. No late weigh-ins will be accepted.

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