Brady Flaten


Brady Flaten is the current President of the Montana Catfish Association. Brady’s love for Catfish spans back to the late 80’s on the banks of the Milk River. Late night episodes fishing with minnows, clam meat and crawlers led to many monster Kitties. In 1997, while attending the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, ND his attraction reached new levels. He couldn’t believe the size and number of trophy Channel Cats that were present in this body of water. He was hooked. Since that time he has done his best to increase his knowledge base surrounding this amazing fish. Reading small rivers for Channel Cats is his strength. He loves competing in tournaments and feels they have helped increase his ability as a fisherman. They have helped him explore deeper into bait, rigging and habitat options. Spending time on the water in his 2006 River Pro jet boat, there are no limitations as to where the Cats can hide. Brady is the current President of the Montana Catfish Association and the co-tournament director of the annual Yellowstone Challenge catfish tournament. He currently resides in Glasgow, MT with his wife Lacey and their three children (Addison, DC, and Kennedy).
