Cabela's King Kat Tournament Trail

Cabela's King Kat Tournament Trail

12 events conducted annually in 10 states.

Tournament sites are located in different markets offering us a chance to promote our sponsors products in different areas and allowing the local anglers in each region the opportunity to compete in the Super Bowl of Cat Fishing, The Cabela’s King Kat Classic held in September or October each year.

Several new lakes scheduled each year.

In an effort to introduce King Kat Trail and our National Sponsors to new markets, we have designed our tournament weekends and our tournaments to reach a diverse market and maximize exposure for our Sponsors.


$200.00 allows a team of two to compete on a National level in our Local qualifier events. This draws more family competitors and also brings in competitors that otherwise would not compete in tournament fishing. We further encourage family involvement by allowing a third person on the team who is under 16 or over 65 at no charge.

Advanced Competition.

For the more advanced and traveling teams, we offer the winners of all affiliate club events a berth at the King Kat Classic.

Continual Growth of Classic Purse.

From $25,000 in 2003, to over $50,000.00 in 2005 and breaking the $70,000.00 mark in 2009, the classic payback has brought accelerated media attention and exposure to the events. Additionally, the Classic is filmed by at least two TV crews each year, (Visual Films with Don Sweet and Southern Outdoors with Eddie Reese).

Positive Reinforcement of our Future Anglers.

Established the King Kat Kids Fishing Rodeos that are held in conjunction with all our tournaments to encourage America’s youth to actively participate in the preservation of our lakes, the sport of fishing, and their educational goals.
