    That's right 12 fish just over 504 pounds.That's a 42# average.Sorry,I forgot the teams name but they were from OHIO.
    Just thought I would share a few photo's.Well worth the trip to see
    a limit of this size.

    I was told that they had a limit (7 per day 14 fish) each day. And the there best fish today was 78 lbs 8 oz and the next one some other team had was 78 lbs 4 oz.
    That was from a buddy that was working the weigh in.

    Thanks for the pictures. Also that was 11,000 lbs of fish in 2 days now that is some fishing.

    Adkins and Doles caught 12 blue catfish weighing 504.75 pounds during two days to win the Cabela's King Kat Classic fishing tournament on Pickwick and Wilson lakes.

    "We had heard a lot about the big catfish in Pickwick Lake before we got here. It definitely lived up to its reputation," Adkins said

    Sorry I was wrong on the total fish. And it was 5 fish. And can you believe one fish only weighed around 2 lbs. man that is a bunch of big fish.

    They can sure say that there the record holder of the most fish caught in that tournament for one day. 301 lbs Friday.

    Cabela’s King Kat Anglers shatter all time records
    Today on day 1 of the Cabela’s King Kat Classic held on Pickwick/Wilson Lakes at Sheffield, Alabama anglers shattered all times records with the first place team weighing in 7 catfish weighing a total of 301.65 pounds. As Greg Adkins and Scott Dole of Chillicothe, Ohio came to the weigh in scales at 10:30 am they knew they would had the lead, but little did they know what a massive achievement they had accomplished.
    In second place is the team of John Jamison of Spring Hill, Kansas and Mark Thompson of Williamsburg, Kansas with an overwhelming weight of 259.10
    Holding on to third is Ron and Michelle Howard of Kings Mountain, NC with a weight of 226.45 pounds.
    Mark Farrow of Meredosia, IL and Tyson Stinebaker of Griggsville, IL are in fourth place with 224.95 pounds.
    Rounding out the top five was Bob Reed of Warsaw, MO and Jerry Kropff of Afton, OK weighing in 200.00 pound.
    Big fish on the first day was captured by Wayne Loftin of Richmond, MO and Jon Young of Fayette, MO with a 68.70 pound blue catfish. Many of the anglers still feel the big fish of the event will be a 75-80 pound fish and tomorrow the second and final day of the event will tell.
    In all the 126 teams fishing the event weighed in near 8000 pounds of fish. That’s a total of 4 ton of catfish. Will tomorrow bring much the same for these anglers and will the leaders hold onto their leads? Be on hand at the Riverfront Park in Sheffield, Alabama tomorrow for the answer. Not only will the top 2 teams be rewarded with new Polar-Craft boat rigs, but spectators will have the opportunity to receive prizes as well. Anglers in the event must stop fishing by 3:00PM and must be in the weigh in line by 4:00pm.
    NATIONAL SPONSORS:

    Day 2 of the Cabela's King Kat CLassic brought excitement as anglers weighed in a 2 day total of near 12,000 pound of fish. To the best of our knowledge it is the biggest freshwater weigh in to date.
    Holding on to first place was the Chillicothe, Ohio team of Greg Adkins and Scott Dole with a total weight of 504.75 pounds in 12 fish. Greg and Scott also had big fish of the event with a 76.85 pound blue cat.
    Second place was the team of John Jamison of Spring Hill, Kansas and Mark Thompson of Williamsburg, Kansas with 490.75.

    I was there too this past week. Thursday before the tournament there was a 121lb caught which would have been a state record but was released. There were some crazy weights posted by some guys.

    I was fishing at Pickwick the day of this tournament. I wasn't entered into the tournament I was just fishing for fun. I don't know if it was one of the contestants in the contest or not but someone stole a fish of mine of a jug and stuck the hook back into it. Can't say I'm too angry though mabye it was a big fish who knows it may have been taken by someone who didn't even win. It was probably a big fish though that one of the contestants spotted because none of my other jugs had stolen fish and I caught 15 fish minus the one that was most likely stolen. I only saw one other boat on the water that day and he did look like he was entered into the contest. The only think I can say for sure is that I would have liked to see the fish that was taken off the jug and hopefully the fish wasn't illegally entered into the contest.
