Michael Tony & Eric Frazier Lead Day 1 of the CATT Championship on Kerr Lake with 17.88lbs


Day 1 Recap of the CATT Championship: A Scenic Start with Tough Competition Greetings, fishing enthusiasts and followers of the CATT Championship! Day 1 has officially wrapped up, and what a day it turned out to be. With 216 dedicated anglers hitting the waters, the stakes couldn’t be higher as they vie for a boatload of prize money and the honor of being crowned champion.

The weather played along beautifully, offering a picture-perfect afternoon that made for an Instagram-worthy setting. However, Mother Nature threw in some challenges with the fishing proving to be tough and water levels creeping into the bushes. These conditions tested even the most seasoned anglers, making every catch a hard-earned victory. One of the fascinating aspects of the CATT Championship is its consistency over the years. Based on past history, we all have our eyes on the magic number: 13 pounds. This has been the average weight that has often dictated success in previous tournaments, and it will be interesting to see if it holds true this year as well.

Will Day 2 see more anglers breaking that benchmark? Only time will tell. As we wrap up Day 1, we extend our best wishes to everyone competing tomorrow. Stay tuned as we continue to bring you updates and highlights from Day 2 of the CATT Championship. Tight lines, everyone!
