SeaArk Boats held its second annual Owner's Invitational Catfish Tournament June 2 on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers.

Two hundred anglers from Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Iowa, Tennessee and Mississippi competed for more than $16,000 in prize money and a chance to win a SeaArk Boats ProCat 200 with a Mercury 115 and a HaulRite Trailer, valued at $32,000.

“One of the highlights of the tournament was that you did not have to catch the biggest fish in order to win the boat package,” SeaArk vice president of sales Steve Henderson said in a statement.

“If a participant caught a legal fish and had it weighed in, his name was entered for the random drawing. The smallest fish weighed in was 0.4 pounds, but the team weighing it in still had a 1-in-88 chance of winning the boat. Everyone had the opportunity to walk away a winner.”

SeaArk builds aluminum fishing, recreational, and duck-hunting boats as large as 24 feet.
