02/24/17 — Catfish Tournament info… finally …

After much irresolution, we have finally nailed a date that works for all parties involved..

The Catfish tournament will be April 29th..(2017)

Our plan is to have the registration on Friday evening on the 28th..

The guys from NM Game & Fish will be there to give an informal oration on the elusive Siluriforme.

a.k.a.  — Catfish..

Kris Flores has built quite a small business around catfish… he is on board to help us also…

We plan on starting the tournament at 7 am on Saturday and have the weigh in at 3 pm..  followed by a short awards ceremony..

We have yet to draw up detailed rules.. they should be posted in the next couple of weeks…

We have never done this sort of tournament before.. so any input will be welcome…

just reply to this blog….

On the fishin’ report side of things….

Still slow.. water is averaging in the mid 50 deg. range…  Several folks have been showing up to start hunting for fish..

no one has anything to report yet..  Just today we had the first group of Walleye fishermen go out..

I will do my best to get the poop as often as I can and post it…

If you have yet to get the honey-do list done… you’ve had all winter… why start now…

dust off the fishin’ gear and come & see us…
