Entry forms are available at: Dows Boat Rental – Nolan’s Point, Lake’s End Marina – Landing, or online at the Knee Deep Club website. For additional information call 973-663-3826.

Cash prizes will be based on an 80 percent payout of entry fees for the three heaviest catfish weighed in for the contest. The anglers catching the fourth, fifth, and sixth heaviest catfish will each receive a $20 gift certificate.

A contestant may enter a child 16 years old or under in this contest for a $5 entry fee. The child with the heaviest catfish will win a rod and reel combo.  Ties will be broken by which catfish was weighed in first.
