The Cabela’s King Kat Tournament Trail will hit the waters of the Ohio River at Henderson, Kentucky April 13, 2013.  This is the opportunity for local catfish anglers to compete for cash, prizes and a chance to advance to the Cabela’s King Kat Classic. This year’s Cabela’s King Kat Classic will be held September 26-28, 2013 on Kentucky Lake at Camden, Tennessee Be sure to check out our new website at: It’s a new site with new and exciting information on our events along with special information for catfish anglers everywhere.

Henderson has always been a hotspot for the Cabela’s King Kat anglers and this could be one of the best events of the year. The last time Cabela’s King Kat Tournaments were in Henderson records were set with Dale and Matthew Kerns setting a new Cabela’s King Kat Tournament Trail record weighing in 210.9 pounds with only 5 catfish. Since that time the record has been broken again, but with the quality of fish in the Ohio River in the Henderson area, this could very well be the highlight of the year.
