27th Annual Cats Incredible Fishing Tournament begins Saturday
East Grand Forks, MN (WDAY TV) - Many cat fisherman will hit the Red River at East Grand Forks for the 27th annual Cats Incredible fishing tournament.
Lines will drop tomorrow morning, in hopes of reeling in the largest channel cat.
Fishermen have been pulling in here throughout today to test the waters.
110 - 2 man teams have registered and will be on the river starting at 7 am tomorrow.
Last minute set up was going on throughout the day, as this is more just a fishing tournament. Near the boat ramp there will be children's games, food vendors and a beer garden.
The East Grand Fork Association of fire fighters is organizing the weekend event.
There are fisherman on teams from as far away as Missouri taking part in the tournament.
Jeff Anderson\Tournament Organizer: “We get quite a draw, and from talking a lot of people that are involved in this. For some it's almost like a reunion for some of these people that come here year after year. There are some people that have worked this tournament since the day it started.”
The proceeds from the Cat Incredible tournament go to buy training equipment for the fire department as well as a number of charities.
