King of the Cats, or KOTC is a catch and release catfish contest that began in 2007 as a fun way to compete throughout the summer with fellow catfishermen and a way to promote catch and release.
In the beginning (2007) we tried a team formatÂ and then the next year switched to our current format which is an individual competition.
The success of the contest will always be based on the participants, but a few people really helped me out in the beginning.
