Little Sioux Fishing Club to hold "all-night" fishing tournament

Monday, August 8, 2011

The Little Sioux Fishing Club of Correctionville will hold its second "all-night" catfish tournament beginning on Saturday night, Aug. 20. Registration will be from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Aug. 20 at the Little Sioux Park located south of Correctionville.

Weigh-in will be Sunday morning, Aug. 21, also the Little Sioux Park. All teams must weigh in 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 $6 per team member. Pay back 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 weighted in is 15". The fish must be caught I the stretch of the Little Sioux River from Cherokee to Smithland, or its tributaries. All fish must be caught on a rod and reel. All other fishing and boat regulations apply.

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

In addition to the tournament for the heaviest stringers of catfish, there will also 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 will be $1 per person. The carp must also be weighed in by 10 a.m. Sunday morning.

The Little Sioux Fishing Club encourages everyone to come out and enjoy some fishing fun.
