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.

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

Here we have it you Mad-Catters. Final results are in for the first (annual?) Utah Catfishing Challenge.
First let me thank each and every one of you - those that showed interest, entered the contest, made entries - and to those that have enjoyed your cattin- independent of the contest.

I've had a great time watching and tracking the entries coming in. Ya'll inspire! Some fine whiskers have shown their faces round these parts, and I'm proud of each of you.
Had a chance to get a young angler onto his first channel cat yesterday, and to see that smile, and the holler to dad "look I got one" - I think the boy's hooked, and will warn you to watch out for him next year!

Not to rub salt in your fillets, but looks like the North ran away with it. Both total entries, and by the contest rules - the top 5 is in. Further congrats to each of the monthly winners, and everyone that landed a cat over 30"s. Nicely done - gotta have good drag control, eh?! (and a big net!)

Here's the Excel Table of the results, and a couple charts with your grand totals. Again - thanks to everyone who participated, and a special shout out to those new BFT members that joined because of the contest. That's a win right there!

Hearty congrats to
Danielc for the first month's top award, and
Wormsinker for the second month's top award,
and an extra large gold clap for
UTCatman for the final grand prize winning entries.

I welcome input on the contest, results, timeframe - and suggestions for next year, assuming we go for it again.

If anyone sees any miscalculations, errors in entries, or challenges - shoot me a PM and I'll address it ASAP.

Prize awards to be announced shortly.
