Glasgow, MT 6/5/21 - The Cat Classic is the gift that keeps on giving!  Simply unbelievable.  On a week where it seemed big fish would be hard to come by, it proved to be anything but.  With very lower water conditions and a heat index in the 90's for the days leading up to the tourney there was an expectation among anglers that this years tourney would be a real challenge and the resident population of catfish in the Mighty Milk would be tight lipped on tourney night.  Leave it the Cat Classic to throw everyone a wrench and come out swinging.  The fishing was fantastic again this year for the 80-team field as twenty eight teams weighed in over 20 lbs. of fish!  That ties the all-time record set in 2017 and 2019.

6/6/2020 (Glasgow, MT)- What an unforgettable weekend!  The 21st version of the Milk River Catfish Classic is one that won't soon be forgotten.  Normal flows, warmer weather, and an impeding storm were just some of the things on the minds of this year's anglers as they prepared for battle.  Thankfully, the high winds ultimately subsided on Saturday evening and the rains effected only a small portion of the tournament boundaries. The stage was set for another great night of fishing on the Milk!  Once again a full field of 80 teams competed in the 8-hour shootout.  At the end of the evening, 72 of the 80 teams would weigh in fish; with 24 teams topping the 20 lb. barrier.  307 Channel Catfish hit the scales on Saturday night and ALL were returned safely to the Milk River.

Big Fish. The 19th Annual Milk River Catfish Classic will be remembered for two words. Big Fish. For the first time in Montana Cats Circuit history, six (6) cats were weighed in over 10 lbs. in a single event. 14 year old, Jake Kuka, led the way with his 12.26 lb. pig, his award winning “Jumbo Whiskers” is the 4th largest in Classic history. Montana Cats Circuit veteran, Bobby Wise of Billings, added an 11.6 lb. kitty. The catch earned him the “Big Whiskers” award for the 2nd largest of the evening. One other 11+ lb. cat was landed to go along with three other 10+ pounders. Simply unbelievable.

It was supposed to be difficult. It was supposed to give anglers problems. Many felt it might even path the way for some teams to win their first ever Catfish Classic. None of it proved true!
