Hey guys just a heads up, the SWOCC is hosting an Open catfish tourney on Nov 2nd, 8-3 pm at Rocky Fork lake, North Shore Marina/ramp
$25 per person, unlimited number on boat ( Kayaks welcome with live sack) 6 fish, 100% payback, placing dependent on entries,
Contact me or VBowler for more info

PS Rocky Fork has an excellent population of high quality channel catfish so there should be some great weights, traditionally winning weights here are in the mid 40 lb range for 6 fish ( 7+ lb ave) and big fish is in the 12-14 lb range

While your sitting at home watching the pouring rain today...just a reminder that Sat weather seems pretty good and this may be the last shot for folks to get that competitive edge off before Ole man Winter shows up...Looking like a good turnout...
Are any of the Kayak guys gonna show??

Man thats tempting. Im thinking about it now.

Can us kayak guys launch from any boat ramp?....just check in at north shore?

I assume teams are per boat, but what about yaks?

If theres a will theres a way.....,......and im willing. Just need to work out details first. I dont think we can win, but I think it would be fun to compete with boats.

Can you switch our sunday trip for saturday?

It didn't register that the 2nd is Saturday. Cheer competition and trick-or-treat Saturday. So I'm all tied up.

Unfortunately I cant make it. I went to buy a car tonight and ended up walking out with an appointment for Saturday.

I hope we can work out some details for next year though. Catfishing tournaments in a yak would be awesome.

Tournament went pretty well, 12 boats but no Kayakers showed. winning weights were 42 lbs for 6 channels. steady wind made it challenging for us who stayed in the main lake and we managed to finish 4 lbs out of the money ( again... its been our year to finish one decent fish out of the money) Lake was 56.5 degrees and lots of bass and crappies guys out also. Trees were beautiful as well.

We are doing another one in the spring so you kayak guys can join us then, just need a burlap or decoy sack for a livewell.

Ever catch any shovel head out of RF?
I grew up fishing RF and Paint Creek. Maybe the biggest shovel head I have caught came from RF on a pig and Jig in a bass tourney about 20 yrs ago and have caught others shovel head there.
