1st Annual Flathead Catfish Hunters Monsters in Florida Tournament
October 18, 2014 - October 19, 2014
ESCAMBIA RIVER MONSTERS IN FLORIDA
SATURDAY 18TH – SUNDAY 19TH OCTOBER 2014
This will be the first official catfish tournament held in the Pensacola area on Escambia River.
It’s going to take place October 18th right in the middle of the big cat bite. October is when we catch most of our big catfish in Florida, as the weather cools the catfish go into a feeding frenzy. Florida is building a name for producing big catfish, especially on Escambia River.
We chose this river for its length and diversity, with 92 miles of river and countless ramps to launch from there will be plenty of room for a spectacular catfish tournam
No blazing hot tournament here, just cool fall weather for everyone to enjoy.
There will be a 4 fish per boat limit; this event will be all about team work. If you plan to fish solo that’s fine as well but teams are encouraged.
We are expecting to see some really big fish brought to the scales we hope to have a bounty set for anyone who can break the state record.
