Catfish anglers from all around the country descended on Louisville KY in February. The occasion was the Third Annual Catfish Conference. Just as catfish tournaments go a long way toward educating an eager public, events like Catfish Conference are one more important cog in the wheel that will help grow the sport of catfishing by bringing anglers together and distributing information on the sport.
The SeaArk Catfish Conference 2018, presented by Suzuki Marine, was held at at the Crowne Plaza Airport Hotel and Convention Center in Louisville, KY. The original sponsors of Catfish Conference, Monster Rod Holders, Jeff Jones Marine, and Business House used what they learned from the first two conferences to make he third one even better. Thousands of catfish enthusiasts from 25 states attend the highly anticipated event.
Catfishing information flowed like water over a waterfall as attendees visited with vendors at their booths and with other cat men and women in the isles. Opening morning could literally be described as an elbow to elbow encounter of the catfish community.
There was a pulse-like beat to the flow of the crowd as seminars began across the hall the flow of traffic migrated to hear the expert speakers share their knowledge of the catfish world. When the seminars ended the flow of people went back into the exhibit hall and the isles filled up again until the next seminar began. Those seminars were drawing 90 to 100 eager catfish anglers with an appetite to learn more about the sport they love.
As always, I wish to thank the great sponsors that support us. It is because of them that we are able to offer the contents of CFN to our readers free of charge. I hope you will help me thank them by considering their products when you are in the market for catfish supplies.
We are extremely pleased to bring you this month’s collection of catfish related content and ask you to share this issue with your friends, relatives and other catfish enthusiasts. By doing so you just might help them catch more CatfishNow.
Fish with passion,
