Cabela’s King Kat Tournament Results

On Saturday, May 10, 2014 top anglers from 10 different states competed in the Cabela’s King Kat Tournament Trail on the Ohio River at Henderson, Kentucky.

Although the terrible weather conditions dampened some spirits, it couldn’t stop the Cabela’s King Kat anglers as they endured storms with thunder and lightning, high winds and heavy rain. Afternoon temperatures were in the 80’s with stormy weather continuing during the weigh-in.

Each team was allowed to weigh their top 5 fish of the day at the weigh in.

Taking first place and $3,000 in cash was Jody Beavin of Owensboro, Kentucky and Ben Goebel of Mt. Vernon, Indiana with a five-fish weight of 119.44 pounds. The team also captured big fish of the event with a 42-pound catfish giving them an extra $565. Jody and Ben fished the Newburg Dam area, drifting in 24- to 40-feet of water using skipjack to catch 15-20 fish for the day.

In second place and winning $1,200 was the Ohio team of Carl Morris Jr. of Johnstown, Ohio and Jeremy Martin of Centerville, Ohio weighing in five fish for 116.32 pounds. Carl and Jeremy were fishing below the JT Meyers Dam, drifting in 25- to 40-feet of water using large and small size skipjack to catch a total of 12 fish for the day.

Third place and $500 went to the Arcanum, Ohio team of Don Hoffman and Chad Langdon with a total weight of 107.22. Don and Chad were fishing while anchored 12 miles upriver using skipjack to catch a total of 20 fish for the day.

The Paragould, Arkansas team of Daryl and Jason Masingale took fourth place with a weight of 97.32 pounds and took home $300. The Masingale team was fishing with skipjack in the Shawneetown area below the JT Meyer Dam in 35- to 40-feet of water, and caught 10 fish for the day.
