Results from Yantis Catfish Classic on Lake Fork

Yantis Mayor Jerry E. Miller, who is also the organizer of the annual Yantis Catfish Classic, wants everyone to know that this Spring’s tournament yielded a donation of $17,500 for the Yantis Volunteer Fire Department. This amount is up from the 2016 donation by $2500, and he feels is money well placed for services rendered year-round by the volunteer organization. The 2-day Catfish Classic brought 248 contestants, the largest-ever field. The wining catch was a 13.25 pound Flathead (yellow) catfish weighed in by Mr. Ray of Yantis. There were also winners in Youth 12-and-under and Youth 13-17 as well as Senior Men and Women divisions. ¬†In keeping with the tourney’s family-oriented theme, each youth age 12 and under who weighed in a fish was given $20, and 41 youth weighed in fish. This was the 13th catfish tournament held on Lake Fork, and the 3rd annual Classic sponsored by Bass Pro Shops and local sponsors as a benefit to the Yantis VFD. ¬†Visiting anglers also boost the economy of the lakeside community. The 2018 tourney is scheduled for the first weekend in May.
