Looking for Catfish tournament on Oconee


Does anyone know of any upcoming catfish tournaments on Oconee, if not is anyone interested in trying to get something together.

There’s one tonight on Sinclair. Look up middle Georgia catfish anglers on facebook if you have it. They have a tourney once a month, and rotate between Oconee, Sinclair, and Jackson.


Thanks for the information, I’ll look into it. I’m not on Facebook, don’t like how they silence different opinions.
