This is a “big fish” tournament where each angler weighs in only one fish. The entry fee is only $75 per person (Plus a $5 convenience fee for online registration).  You do not have to be a member of CAT to fish this tournament, and you can fish from a boat, the bank, a dock, a kayak or tube.  All anglers of all skill levels have a chance to win.

New for this year, CAT has teamed up with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) and 1/3rd of all entry fees will be donated by CAT to the NOCC!!!   

And most exciting of all, there is a $7,500 cash bonus for anglers that weigh in a 3 pound + crappie.  If you are the only angler to weigh-in a 3 pound crappie and you are a CAT member, you will walk away with at least $13,500 in cash for a single fish!  No tournament in the country offers anglers of all skill levels the opportunity to win so much money for a single fish, so be sure and fish CAT’s 2018 Crappiefest Tournament.
