  • 12th annual Lake Conroe Cajun Catfishing Contest







    It's that time of year again. The Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival and FishingAcrossTx.com are sponsoring its 12th annual Lake Conroe Cajun Catfishing Contest. Prizes will be awarded for the largest three catfish submitted. Consolation prizes will be randomly given out by FishingAcrossTx.com via a drawing at the conclusion of the contest. Actual prizes as well as quantity of prizes will be based on donations made by local merchants. See the prize list below.

    Contest will begin on September 9th and end on October 10th at 8am. All catfish entered must be weighed and photographed and documented. Anglers of the three largest catfish will be awarded the three top prizes by FishingAcrossTx.com. In addition to the three largest catfish awards random anglers will be selected via a drawing and awarded consolation prizes. Every catfish submitted over five pounds will get the angler an additional entry into the random drawing. See the prize list below and keep them catfish coming.

Contest photos may be printed and on display at the Cajun Catfishing Contest and FishingAcrossTx.com booth at the Conroe Cajun Catfish Festival October 14th, 15th and 16th.

        Fishy, if you can't catch a fish when given a month you need to find a new hobby.
