2017 season series is here!
Thank you for joining us this season! Thank you to all the anglers who make this a fun event!
In honor of our good friend, Slim Evans, who passed away on July 14,2009 -
Fisher's Landing Resort has named this event
"The Slim Evans Memorial Catfish Derby".
Slim was an avid catfisherman and sportsman, as well as a long time
Fisher's Landing resident.
Slim never missed one of these derbys.
We feel fortunate to have had Slim in our lives and community.

Due to the popularity- we are holding four overnight catfish tournaments each year.
All tournaments start on Saturday at 2pm and end on Sunday at 7:00am
