Madness on the Marshyhope: Blue Catfish Tournament & Festival

November 5, 2022

The Town of Federalsburg, Federalsburg Lions Club, Federalsburg VFW and Caroline County Parks and Recreation have teamed up to host Madness on the Marshyhope Blue Catfish Tournament and Festival! This family-friendly event will also include music, food trucks and educational presentations from DNR while the anglers fish! You won’t want to miss the After Party Fish Fry at the VFW starting at 5:30pm, which will have music, a bonfire, and a good time for all!
The blue catfish is an invasive species that is causing havoc in our rivers with our native species. The tournament will help bring awareness to area anglers and residents about the dangers the blue catfish pose to our beloved crabs, rockfish and sturgeon. Please support this all day festival and tournament!
Prize categories are as follows:
1st, 2nd, 3rd largest
1st, 2nd, 3rd weight/poundage
Calcutta (will include snakeheads and 3 largest)
Veteran/Active Duty/First Responder Category for largest catfish
Kid’s/Derby Prizes 1st, 2nd, 3rd largest
Weigh-in time TBD depending on the number of tournament registrants. Please follow their Facebook page  for more information and details on the schedule for the day.
