Bass Pro Shops Big Cat Quest

Posted: October 7th, 2007 by Bill Dance

The last two months have been busy busy busy for Bill Dance but still fun. My regular fishing buddy James Big Cat Patterson and I recently competed in Bass Pro Shops Big Cat Quest held here in Memphis on the Mississippi River. No, we didn’t win it this year like we did last year. We were 4 pounds shy of the top spot, so finished in 2nd place.

Our limit of 5 fish weighed 118 lbs. The winning string had 5 weighing 122lbs. Because of Tennessee’s trophy cat fish law, we could only weigh in two fish over 34 inches and three as close to 34 inches as we could catch. It was definitely a game of inches and pounds. Our two biggest fish weighed 30 and 40 pounds, but we had to threw back several fish in the mid 20 pound range because they were over 34 inches!
