Welcome to the USCA, I think you are going to like it here. I think we are going to need more details to provide an answer. Speculating you meant "hear if" not "here if", no I have not heard of a competition in my area. The IN. guys on the board get together on the Ohio late September and have what I think is an informal contest for big fish but not sure about total weight. There are other catfish tourneys that draw folks from all across the U.S. like Monsters On The Ohio. If you are looking to compete I would suggest a computer search for upcoming events in your area. Good Luck.
