The Cabela’s King Kat Tournament Trail will hit the waters of the Ohio River at Metropolis on Saturday.

This is an opportunity for local catfish anglers to compete for cash and prizes and advance to the Cabela’s King Kat Classic to be held Sept. 27-29 on the Alabama River in Selma, Ala.

The best time for spectators to view the tourney will be from 3-5 p.m., as the fishermen are coming with their live fish for weigh-ins.

The trail is a team event.

The tournament weigh-in will be held at the Fort Massac State Park Boat Ramp. Tournament hours are 6:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. All anglers must be in weigh-in line by 4 p.m. with a five fish limit per team.

To help preserve the sport, only live fish will be weighed in and all fish will be released after the tournament.

Catfish clubs and organizations may register with the King Kat Tournament Trail and qualify its top two teams from each event to fish in the Cabela’s King Kat Classic for support in promoting the tournament trail.

For registration information and a complete list of rules contact Cabela’s King Kat Trail at 270-395-6774 or visit www.kingkatusa.com.
