9th Annual Milk River Catfish Classic

9th Annual Milk River Catfish Classic

June 07, 2008 by

Glasgow, MT 6/7/08- Who would take home the 9th Annual Catfish Classic championship…..rookies, tourney vets or past champions? Relatively stable weather and good river flows were sure to provide plenty of drama and huge Channel Cats for the traditional downtown midnight weigh-ins. One of the unique challenges this tournament poses, is the astounding amount of river miles within the tournament boundaries. The scenic Vandalia Dam separates two sections of the boundary and these two sections offer drastically different Catfish habitat. The teams that were able to guess their locations correctly would certainly be rewarded.

After the dust settled, local anglers Don Resseguie and Kevin Durrell proved to have the answer, weighing in an impressive 25.2 lb stringer of fish. Using a combination of different baits and tactics; this duo caught an extraordinary amount of Cats and were able to upgrade their championship stringer throughout the night. Tourney vets Jason Flaten and Tyler George finished a mere .3 lbs behind the champs, however, it didn’t come easy. A good mixture of tourney vets and rookies littered the top 10. Check out the link below for comments and interviews from tournament participants.

It was another successful Cat Classic weekend in Glasgow. The Calcutta, Catfish Seminar and tourney weigh-ins were highly attended and exhibited continued growth. The sky is the limit for this tourney and community. Please follow the links below for comments and interviews with tournament participants. Join us on June 6th 2009, for the 10th Annual Catfish Classic.
