Captain Brad Durick is a nationally known catfish guide, outdoor writer and educator coming from the famed Red River of the North. Durick owns Brad Durick Outdoors LLC ( is the only full time channel catfish guide on the Upper Red River. Besides guiding, he spends countless hours researching river channel cats to fine tune patterns to catch more and bigger catfish. This research led to the release of his 2013 book Cracking the Channel Catfish Code which dives deep into the inner workings of channel catfish and rivers and how they react to each other. The release of the book has taken Durick all over the Midwest teaching catfish anglers the finer points of catching catfish.
