Cabela's King Kat
Official Rules of Cabela’s King Kat EventsAll rules are to provide a fair and equal playing field for all competitors and are based on a (2) person team. Some states have trophy fish laws and/or individual rod limits that take precedent over our tournament rules. In those states, 3 person teams will be restricted to the same limits as a (2) person team.
ReleaseAt the request of VMD Promotions, LLC, any randomly selected team or one member of any team that qualifies for a prize must submit to and pass a POLYGRAPH TEST and/or any other test deemed necessary to determine compliance with tournament rules. Only one member of the team selected by the tournament director will be tested. If that member passes the test, the prize earned by the team will be awarded. If that member fails the test, the team will be disqualified and neither member of the team will be awarded a prize. The decision of the test examiner will be final. Contestants agree to release VMD Promotions, LLC and its sponsors of these events from any liability arising from the administration of the test and/or the decision of the test examiner. Contestants also agree that any mention of names or use of photographic likenesses may be used by King Kat and/or VMD Promotions, LLC and its national sponsors for promotional purposes.
All decisions regarding compliance with these rules and the interpretation of these rules will be made by the tournament director and VMD Promotions, LLC which reserves the right to make additional reasonable rules for the conduct of their tournaments if circumstances require. VMD Promotions, LLC (d/b/a Cabela’s King Kat) does not discriminate for reasons of race, creed, color, or national origin and we abide by all rules set forth in the American Disabilities Act.

Code of EthicsCabela's King Kat Tournament Trail is America’s Premier Catfish Trail. Much media coverage and attention will be focused on our events and especially at the weigh-in sites. Please present yourself in such a way as we can all be proud. Dress accordingly at the weigh-ins and be at the top of your behavior. The better image we project to our sponsors and America’s youth, the more highlight the sport of catfishing will receive. This will be of great benefit to those who are seeking their own sponsorship’s as well. Attention Catfish Clubs and Organizations: Register your organization with Cabela’s King Kat Trail and qualify your top two (2) teams from each event to fish the Cabela’s King Kat Classic, provided they fish one Cabela’s King Kat event, just for helping us promote Cabela’s King Kat Trail.
