2012 Utah Catfishing Challenge
I've posted the contest rules and entry information for the Catfishing contest on the contest board (follow the link above).

There will be allowance for individual or team entries, with the teams representing North vs South. You can get all the details on the contest link. If you have any questions, just shoot me a note.

This will be my first BFT contest, so bear with me. Try to make it as smooth as possible, hopefully we'll get folks out and into some fun fishing. It's all about fun right, well - and bragging rights!

NOTE: Just hope it's clear. There are two teams, N and S. Sign up for one or the other, or not. If you sign up for a team, your entries are expected to come from that regions waters. If you're independant, you can fish wherever.

If a notherner goes down to the Jordan and catches a 30" 30Lber - thats all well and good, It can be entered toward individual entry, but wouldn't count toward the N. teams group. Hope that seems reasonable.

Whats funny is when i played ball for the U, we called those byu holigans tds aka the team down south, they were always cocky and saying how they were gonna beat us every year, well my 3 yrs at the U and we stomped them every year, also was fortunate to watch one of their Qbs cry on local tv! It must be something with them peeps from down south (happy valley) that think they run stuff. I love utah lake but trust me down southers up north produces some real nice like kitties!

thank you come again
have a great weekend


GO UTES!! sorry bama but the tide got-got in 2008 lol jk

Just want to be sure all you cat-fishers are on board and aware. Check THIS LINK to see entrants and standings.

The contest IS OPEN!!!


I believe I've reached out to everyone that's either contacted me, or that I've seen a note from requesting entry.
I've marked the entrants GREEN whom I've received payments.
If you think you've made your payment, but it's not indicated, shoot me another PM. Make sure you include your BFT handle with your payment.

Also - print off a Catfishing Banner from the Rules page. I'd suggest you write in your BFT name on your banner.
Start your own thread on the CONTEST board - just look at BAMA boy's entry, good model - and nice fish.

I'm going to push out the deadline for entries to the end of this month, as we've still got space open, and there have been some recent inquiries.

So - if you're still interested - shoot me a PM.
If you've got friends that are interested, pass it on.

But - we'll have a HARD STOP on June 30th. If I don't have your entry and entry fee you won't be counted in the competition.

Still waiting for a few more payments. Check the standings, if your name is not GREEN - get a payment to me, or drop me a note, let me know what's going on.

Hey you mad Catters!

Competition is rolling along. There've been some nice entries, but I have a stinking suspicion the best is yet to come! Nothing over 30"es so far, but right on the cusp. Look to that state record folks - they're out there!

So - we're looking about one more week for entries, and payups to make entries official. There's a few folks that still need to submit their payment to get officially on board.

If you haven't gone "green" - please check with me. If you think you've sent a payment and I don't have it recorded - lets nail it down. If you haven't made your payment - it is DUE by end of June. Or your entries will not qualify.

I'm a "more is merrier" kinda guy, so bring it! If you've got any friends that might want to join is, "make it so".

But come first of July, the lock is in.
Shoot me a note here, PM, on the contest board - lets " git 'er done!". There's a lot of summer cattin still awaiting!

End of the first month (plus). Have tallied up the standings for any interested. You can check the CONTEST board and see the entries themselves. Some impressive cats coming out to play!

The contest is young still, entries are closed, but two months remain.. So get your banner and tape ready, and get cattin! Just watch your drag my friends!

I've reached out to every entrant. Need contact back to confirm. Drop dead deadline is end of Monday. If I haven't heard solid plans, you're out. Sorry. Check the standings. If you're name ain't GREEN you ain't a GO!

was out of town for a week, and seems like you folks've been busy. Think I got all the scoring updated yesterday, but please feel free to check my math (keep me honest)

Some nice fish being brought it. You folks ROCK the CatsBot! Keep on keeping on! Plenty of time still, so get out there, get on em!

Tightlines! I have some "catching" up to do too.

I'll update the over all charts and standings at the end of the month. I will say - the South has the Individual Leader, but the North is in the overall lead.

Keep at it. It's what I tell myself, it's what I share with ya'll!

Coming up on what's been a busy month for you Catfishing Crazies! Lost of quality entries. The 30inch mark has been broken numerous times.

Just a shout out to have any July entries in by end of day tomorrow. Wed morn I'll take our current tally, and update/publish the graphs of the standings.
We currently have a tie for first at 84 points, but the tie breaker goes to the (drumroll...) north for the largest fish at 31 inches.

Team standings - I'll let speak for themselves when I release the graphs.

Keep-on Cattin-on!

So July has come and gone, and it's been a busy month for some of you Catfish Hunters! There's been some real quality fish being shown, the 30 inch mark has been broken more than once.

With a couple nice last minute entries, please congratulate Wormsinker for taking the lead in the standings at this point in the game.

Team Totals are:
North 604.5 South 377.0
I haven't tallied the top 5 per team yet. Suspense!
So one month to go. I know some of us need to get our Cat Hat on, and get our bait out!

Appreciate the support and kind words. It's fun stuff!
Just to put it out there, if any of my "calls" are questioned - you are welcome to request a second opinion. The other mods are willing to help out. Just want everyone to feel they got a fair shake.
Thanks.

Standings at the end of July. Top 3 count towards total.

Times winding down. Last couple weeks left, so - get out there, get cattin, get them entries in! Have had some really nice catches, and I know a few who have plans on bigger yet (myself included!).

Contest was set to end by Sept. I've heard a couple anglers talk about fall-cattin', and - assuming there is a challenge next year - open to input if the time-frame of the contest should be extended.

I actually find some nice cats earlier than we started. So basically - input is welcome towards any future Catfish Challenges.

Gotta say - appreciate all the participation, the entries, the fact ya'll are out there going for it. Cheers and good tugs!!!
