Steve Douglas - The Catfish Dude

Hi, my name is Steve Douglas; I am the President of the Catfish Conference and I am also the owner and operator of Monster Rod Holders. I run several websites and blogs that are fishing and outdoors related.

I am professional competitive catfish tournament angler from the state of Kentucky, competing across the U.S. in the Cabelas King Kat Pro series tournament trail, ranking, 2nd in the nation among my peers for two consecutive years in a row.

I have embedded myself deep into the catfishing industry not only as a tournament angler but also as a manufacture of catfishing products and also participating as a major sponsor of the Cabelas King Kat national tournament trail.

I started the Discover catfishing ( site because I get a lot of request for catfishing information from folks on my websites and through emails.

I thought I could help many more folks learn about a certain topic and to provide real information, tips, techniques and proven methods if I posted the information on one website with articles that could be shared easily. Instead of approaching it, one person at a time.

As the sport grows, so does the desire from new anglers to obtain qualified information for better catch results! Over the years I has enjoyed helping many anglers improve their catch rate, and don’t mind to share what I have learned over the years competing on the national trails..

I am also known as the "Catfish Dude" (Steve Douglas) and I am followed by over 42'000 people on Youtube and have over 8 million video views.
