NEW TOURNAMENT FORMAT
In 2009, each CAT Qualifier Tournament and the CAT Texas State Championship will have two separate divisions. Fishermen will compete against other fishermen in their same division only. Anybody can sign up and fish in Division 1, but Division 2 will be reserved exclusively for developing crappie fishermen—no guides or tournament professionals will be allowed to fish in Division 2. For more information on this new format, please review the new tournament rules.
ANGLER(S) OF THE YEAR COMPETITION
Each tournament Division will have its own “Angler(s) of the Year” competition in 2009. Points for Angler(s) of the Year will be awarded to the “Team” in Division 1, and to the Individual anglers in Division 2. For more information on the Angler(s) of the Year competition, please review the new tournament rules.
