Each year CAT awards the Sportsman of the Year to an individual who gives back to the sport and helps others. This year the award went to Bill Muntz. Bill has given his time and talent to the Junior Angler Program with mounts of winning fish and to CAT winners with mounts. Bill also takes numerous pictures at the events as y'all have seen. A very deserving individual. Congratulations to Bill Muntz from Max Jordan, myself, Bob and Velma McAffrey, Bryan Tullius and Gerald Skidmore.
This year CAT added a "TOP CAT" award for an individual who has given his time and money in support of crappie fishing in Texas. The award went to Alec Dyer. Alec has generously donated to Crappie Fest each year and given much of his time never asking or desiring anything in return. Alec has done a great deal to further crappie fishing in the Lone Star State. A truly unselfish individual. Congratulations and well deserved Alec.
