WILLS POINT -- With a tournament stringer of more than 180 pounds, area resident Robert Aguilera and his partner, Ray Austin, finished second in the Cabela’s King Kat qualifier at Lake Tawakoni last month. The qualifier is part of what has become the largest catfish tournament trail in the country.

“We did our best to bring it home for the Texas boys,” Aguilera said.

The single-day tournament began at 6:30 a.m. on March 1, and Aguilar and Austin were the first of nearly 50 teams to weigh in. With a total stringer of 180.4 pounds, including one fish that weighed 50.98 pounds, Team TopCat found itself atop the leaderboard. Boat after boat weighed in for more than two hours and Aguilera and Austin remained at the top, until a team from Missouri took the top spot with a total stringer of 217.15 pounds.

“It was a great tournament, and [we] feel very blessed to have had a great day on the water,” Aguilera said.

Aguilera went on to say that he and Austin felt it was a great opportunity to fish against some of the country’s best anglers, including state record holder Cody Mullinex. The second-place finish for Team TopCat qualified them to compete in Cabela’s Western Championship.

“We are going to do our best to find some sponsorship to fish at least one of the Classic events,” Aguilera said, “and do our best to bring a championship home to Texas.”
