All-night catfish tourney at Eagle Creek

July 07, 2009 at 02:48 PM

The annual FISH ALL NIGHT CATFISH TOURNAMENT will be held Saturday evening, August 1 at Eagle Creek State Park in Findlay, IL.

The event is sponsored by Eagle Creek Resort of Findlay and Decatur Danville Scale Company, Macon in conjunction with Eagle Creek State Park. The entry fee for the tournament is $30.00 per team if registered before August 1.

A $5 late registration fee will apply to all teams registering on the day of the tournament. One hundred percent of the entry fees will be paid out in cash prizes to the top three teams (most pounds of catfish). There will be an additional cash prize available for the individual catching the single largest catfish.

The tournament will begin at 7:00 p.m. and end at 2:00 a.m. at the Eagle Creek boat ramp. Late registration and contestant check-in will be from 5:00-6:30 p.m. Boat number launch order will be assigned in the order paid registrations are received by the Eagle Creek State Park office, so send in your registration form as soon as possible.

All contestants must have proof of a valid Illinois Fishing License. Both bank fishing and boat fishing are permitted, but all contestants must leave either by boat or on foot from the Eagle Creek Boat ramp. This tournament has become very popular with anglers since its inception with over $2,000.00 in total prize money being awarded in the past.

Site Superintendent, Richard Glazebrook says his goal is to award more and more each year. “There is still plenty of room for this tournament to grow, and with prize $ based on entry fees, the more contestants - the more prize money awarded!” Registration forms are available at the Eagle Creek State Park office. For more information, a complete list of regulations, or to register, call the park office at (217) 756-8260.
