    I apologize for the time this has taken to make our final decision.After looking at the past years of our beloved Casting for Cats Womens fishing tournament our number of lady anglers has dropped each year, in order to keep up with our ever changing time Casting for Cats will be changing it’s format. Now we will include women anglers fishing with there Captain or there husband to become a team event We will still have a Grand Champion female angler but we will also have other division . We are hoping this change will bring in more anglers male and female to cover the cost we all incurred by having tournaments. With this new change we now will be challenged with a new set of rules to make it fun and fair for all. We feel we need to ”Paws” to make these changes . We have just booked the Islander Resort for Oct.17 and 18 2024 . Thank you for so many years of your support we greatly hope this change will keep this tournament here for many years to come.
