Today is a sad day for Catfishing one of the true pioneers of Catfishing has died. James Earl Smith We all knew him as "Snuffy". He was two time World Champion of Catfishing he was my mentor, fishing and hunting buddy, godfather to my son and loved by myself as a father. He was admired by others you know now in the Catfishing World such as David Couglin, Ray Ferguson, Rickey Matlock, Clifton Crutcher, Phil King and many others. I was blessed to have shared my boat and my life with this man! May God Bless his Family during this time as for me and the WCC The National Catfish Derby we will miss and love him with all our hearts. Rest in Peace Snuffy, God has one of the best fishing in heaven!!!
