About 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.
$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.
