Local and traveling fishermen and women will be competing for a $5,000 1st place prize this weekend during the Catfish Chasers Tournament.
If a fisherman catches a new Missouri record channel catfish, flathead or blue cat during the tournament they will win a 2017 Team Realtree Chevrolet 4×4 truck from Reed Chevrolet and $10,000 cash from St. Joseph Harley Davidson.
The tournament runs from Saturday at 7 p.m. to 10 a.m. on Sunday with a mandatory meeting at the French Bottoms Ramp at 3 p.m. Saturday. A limited supply of fishing equipment will be handed out to kids who come to see the weigh-in.
