CatCon's Shortlist of the top content creators.

Catfish and crappie fishing is fueled by one simple factor: the talent of incredible storytellers. These content creators dedicate their energy to share their passion with the public, with you.  At Catfish Conference, we understand the growing complexity of all social media platforms and how incredibly complicated it is for new and established creators to carry on with their mission. 

We dedicate our success and the community’s success to you. We thank you for what you are doing and for making the sport grow every day.
