Grove, OK, United States, 2007/09/17 - Catfish anglers of all ages now have a bragging board to show off their catfish. Qualifying anglers may also receive decals or achievement certifications and more. Best of all, it doesn't cost anything.
Catfish guides, tournament anglers and organizations, and anglers of all ages now have a free bragging board to show off their catfish. Qualifying anglers (or their submitting friends and family) also receive free decals or achievement certifications to further show their pride in their catch and sport.
Team Catfish, makers of Real Catfish Gear, has put together a Catfish Awards of Excellence Program that is free for anyone to qualify for. Each award provides anglers with a choice of a Certificate of Achievement or a 6-inch vinyl Team Catfish Decal. Catch photos will also be featured in the appropriate galleries of the Braggin Board for one year. The award requirements are broken down as follows:
• The Great Catfish Award is achieved by an angler submitting a picture of a Catfish they've caught that's at least 15-inches in length.
• The Big Catfish Award is achieved with a photographed Catfish that's at least 25-inches in length.
• The Whopper Catfish Award requires a Blue or Flathead Catfish with a minimum length of 35-inches or a Channel Catfish of 30-inches length.
• The Monster Catfish Award is achieved by submitting a picture of a triumphant angler with a Blue or Flathead Catfish of at least 45-inches in length or a Channel Catfish that’s at least 33-inches in length. This award comes with a bonus Team Catfish Hat and indefinite Braggin Board listing as well as choice of certificate or decal.
• The Catfish Expert Award is achieved by getting the Great, Big and Whopper Catfish Awards for a single variety of Catfish.
• The Grand Slam Award is Team Catfish’s highest award. It can only be achieved by earning Expert Awards for Blue Catfish, Channel Catfish, and Flathead Catfish. After verification, anglers receive a free prize package and Grand Slam Award Certificate. The prize package, valued at $49.95, includes a 6-inch vinyl Team Catfish Decal, Team Catfish Hat, Pair of Team Catfish Fish Grips, and indefinite photo feature on the Catfish Expert Braggin Board.
A separate section at Team Catfish (teamcatfish.com) has also been created for fishing guide and tournament photos. Fishing guides and tournament fishermen or organizations may create free accounts and upload photos, sponsors, and clients for events or catfishing guide services.
The Team Catfish Gear and Awards Program and picture galleries were created for catfish anglers by catfish anglers.
