Default Buckeye Lake Catfish Tournaments

My buddy and I put together a couple Big Cat Tournaments at Buckeye last year and had a pretty decent turnout (about 15 each tourney). We thought about doing a more organized once a month tournament starting in late march early april. I guess the question is how many people would be interested in doing some of these and would friday night work better or saturday. Also we are think about switching from a Big Cat to a Limit weighin.

Just putting out Feelers..

I agree that the 5 fish total is good and would this be for just buckeye or would you include some of the other local lakes too? A little more info would be good, I think it would get alot of interest especially if promoted right

I'd be down. Just would have to email dates or something!! I think a total weight and a big fish would be neat. I was in a cat tourney last year and they did both, total, and big fish.

another prize we have at the catfish toury in our private club is that they will select a random weight and place it in a envelope before the start. Whoever weighs in a fish closest to that weight at the end of the night wins a prize (the weight could be anything reasonable, not always a big fish will win)

I think it's great what you guys are throwing together,Buckeye is a great catfish lake.I also think this is a cool idea.To show my support,in behalf of OGF, I'll donate a little prize for the first random weight contest if you wish to do this.Someone shoot me a pm to remind me as the first one nears.I'll shoot out with prize & watch the weigh in.

This was a tournament series from last year that nobody came to, so it pretty much disbanded. IF there is some people that would be interested in fishing this year i would be happy to put one together at Buckeye about once a month. I have the gear and scales etc. if someobdy would be happy to help out on occasion i think i would be more than happy to try it again this year. I know there is a tournament series out there now but it jumps around from lake to lake i fished last year, i dont want to cut into their schedule at buckeye but im sure we can all work around that. What do you guys think????

It'll probably be friday nights 7ish until maybe 130-2am?? hows that sounding? friday night tournaments are better at buckeye cause its not quite as busy as a saturday night. plus you have a whole weekend ahead of you till you have to go back to work
