Hey everyone, sorry for the lack of updates here on the website lately. I have been making daily updates on our Facebook Page so hopefully everyone has been following along there, if not I would encourage you to do so. At any rate, we have been having a good year here at KOTC, lots of great fish being caught. The rain and high water in the Upper Midwest definitely has had an impact on the Late June through Mid July bite. Add in spawning activity and it made for some slow times for sure. But, as in previous years July seems to be one of the slower months for entry activity anyways. But the good news is that the action is picking up! The water levels are dropping and the fish are starting to really get active again. Taking a look at the leaderboard we have some very impressive totals in both categories. To date, 22 Channel cats over 30” and 42 Flatheads over 40” have been entered and about 100 fish in total. The biggest Channel Cat entered so far was caught by Marty Meshek @ 37 x 24 (approx. 26lbs) and the biggest Flathead caught by Jon Ekstrand @ 48 x 33 (approx. 59lbs). I look forward to receiving more of your entries here in August and Sept, we all know there are a LOT more big fish to be caught yet, especially those BIG late season Sumo Channel Cats. Here are some highlight pics! Be sure to check out the leaderboard and see where everyone stands so far. Good luck to everyone in the second half of the season.
