Long story short, while fishing a catfish tournament on the Ohio River in 2007 I lost the catfish of a lifetime do to a broken rod holder.

It happened so quickly, before I was able to stand up to grab the rod as I seen the initial takedown. All I could do was watch as the rod along with the rod holder was pulled from my boat into the depths.

Now in my mind of course this Monster was over 100 lbs, but in reality who knows. But that was the day I swore it would never happen again just in case, I happen to get lucky and hook another Monster one day.

I immediately went to work on the design and feature’s that I needed to for tournament catfishing and made 8 of them. I used them in 2008 on the national trail and other anglers seen them and wanted me to also make them some rodholders and it has snow balled from there.

The Monster set the standard in the catfish tournament industry providing, strength, durability and versatility.

We are now the Official Rod Holder for the Cabela’s King Kat National Tournament Trail and support and sponsor many local and regional catfishing tournament organizations throughout the country, promoting the sport of catfishing.
