Huffman has dedicated his life to helping crappie fishing grow, and to helping crappie anglers catch more fish.
Tim Huffman was recently honored by the Bass Pro Crappie Masters organization by being presented the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Huffman has specialized in crappie fishing for 31 years. He has written newspaper columns, magazine articles, shot over 100 magazine cover photos, published eight books, been involved in four crappie newsletter/magazine start-ups, was editor of CrappieNow for eight years and is currently the magazine’s Senior Writer. He is also editor of Bass Pro Shops Crappie Masters Magazine.
Crappie Masters’ Brian Sowers says, “It was truly an honor to present Tim Huffman with the Lifetime Achievement Award. He has done so many things over the years for Crappie Masters and for all of crappie fishing. His writing reflects ‘Let’s teach people how to do this,’ as he strives to help fishermen catch more fish.
“Tim has helped people get involved in the sport of crappie fishing and taught them to be better fishermen. We thank him for everything he has done and there is no one more deserving of this award.”
Huffman says, “It’s a surprise and honor to receive this award. My writing is simple, not fancy. I try to present tips, tactics and other fish-catching ideas in a way that is easy to understand. I’m proud to be writing for crappie fishermen who, as a group, has the same characteristics and personalities as me. God has blessed me in many ways, including opening doors so I could write about the great outdoors that He created.”
