This week’s Catch of the Week features Wyatt Smith, who caught this 24-inch channel catfish at Lake Minatare.
The Biggest Fish Contest, sponsored by Cabela’s/Bass Pro Shops will run through Labor Day, with the contest ending on Sept. 7.
The top three longest fish at the end of the contest will be eligible for prizes from Cabela’s/Bass Pro Shops. Fish are based on length, not weight, and catch-and-release is encouraged.
The Star-Herald welcomes submissions of fish caught from the Panhandle or eastern Wyoming (North Platte River system), as well as Lake McConaughy, between May 25 and Sept. 7, 2020.
Entries must include a clear photo of the fish and the angler who caught it, information about the place it was caught, its length in inches (weight optional) and the name and phone number of a witness to confirm the length of the fish and the day it was caught. Nebraska Master Angler applications also are acceptable. Entries must be submitted at starherald.com/biggestfishcontest.
