Chris Souders is a seasoned catfish angler, an accomplished tournament angler, and a dedicated family man. The southern Ohio native was named Cabela’s King Kat Angler of the Year (AOY) in 2016. His strong work ethic and determination to succeed led him to repeat the AOY title in 2017. Chris credits his passion for fishing to his positive fishing experiences as a child and strives to pass that passion on to future generations. Chris believes that conservation starts with CPR (Catch, Photograph, Release) and educates people about the importance of this practice. To promote conservation effectively he believes anglers must hold themselves to high standards and be good role models for others. Chris shares his passion for catfishing here on Catfish Crazy and also Slunger Cat Outdoors, a YouTube channel that he created to help people learn how to find and catch more and bigger catfish. Chris also shares his proven techniques in how-to seminars and on other social media sites.
