2016 season series ends!
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.
