I catch catfish.


Chad Ferguson Biography Chad Ferguson is a native Texan who lives in Saginaw Texas. He’s one of the most avid catfish anglers you’ll ever meet and has been obsessed with catching catfish for decades. Some people claim he’s one of the few people that actually thinks like a catfish. Some people even call him Mr. Catfish! Chad grew up fishing in Texas and has been fishing for catfish since he was a few years old. Some of his earliest memories are chasing cats as a child on Possum Kingdom Lake in North Texas. Chad owns and operate North Texas Catfish Guide Service offering guided fishing trips for blue, channel and flathead catfish on several lakes in the Dallas / Fort Worth area including Eagle Mountain Lake, Lake Worth, Lake Lewisville, Ray Roberts and the Brazos River (just to name a few). He fishes for anything that has whiskers but prefers fishing for monster blue catfish with rod and reel. He operates a popular website called Catfish Edge where he shares catfishing tips, tricks and information to help anglers learn how to catch catfish using the same techniques he uses as a professional catfish guide. For years catfishing was a “secretive” sport with very few anglers willing to share their insights into what makes them successful. With the increased popularity of catching catfish across the United States, Chad used Catfish Edge to create a one stop resource for both beginning and veteran anglers to learn how to catch more and bigger catfish through online videos, podcasts and articles. In his “free time” he’s a guest host for the popular Fox Sports Outdoors TV Show, an outdoor writer and photographer and it’s always all about whisker fish! You can find his work and features through numerous outdoor media outlets due to his including Field and Stream, Outdoor Life, Texas Fish and Game, Texas Sportsmans Journal, Fox Sports, The Mens Channel and Versus. He also works closely with several catfish specific tackle manufacturers like Whisker Seeker Tackle developing new and innovative products for catfish anglers. Chad is sponsored by Sea Ark Boats, Whisker Seeker Tackle, Abu Garcia, Humminbird, MinnKota, Driftmaster Rod Holders, Costa Sunglasses, Fitec Cast Nets, Ego Landing Nets, Bison Coolers, TTI Blakemore, Feel-Free and Moritz Chevrolet.
