MONTICELLO, AR (August 22, 2022) –SeaArk Pro-Staffer Jeff Dodd caught record weights at this weekend’s CatMasters Tournament in Helena, Arkansas.
The 2022 CatMasters at Helena event attracted 74 catfish teams made up of 170 anglers to Helena, Arkansas, and the Mississippi River for two days of competitive fishing. The area holds plenty of big blue catfish, and this year’s event posted some very nice weights. Day one ended with Team Dodd (Jeff Dodd, Randy Dodd, Jonathan Dodd) holding the first-place spot with a three-fish weight of 175.67 pounds. After holding down a first place on day one, Jeff Dodd, Randy Dodd, and Jonathan Dodd added 185.73 pounds for a two-day total of 361.40 pounds to take the win at The CatMasters at Helena.
When asked how he felt when he realized he caught 360 pounds of catfish, he said, “I felt so completely humbled to have not one but two great days of fishing. The stars lined up for us this weekend, and we are so grateful.”
Steve Henderson, President of SeaArk Boats, stated, “SeaArk Boats is lucky to have Pro-Staffer Jeff Dodd on our team. It was awesome to see firsthand a catch of a lifetime from one of our own.”
To show our excitement for this great accomplishment, we have developed an award named “The Big Daddy Dodd Record Catch Award,” where we will award anyone who weighs in 360 pounds or more at an ACA 2-day tournament $1,000.
