Here's your list of winners from the 2020 ICAST Best of Show and Category competitions.

The American Sportfishing Association (ASA) has revealed the ICAST 2020 Online New Product Showcase Best of Category award winners, and though the in-person show was cancelled and shifted to online-only, the accolades that go along with a Best of Category award are just as special.

A total of ­­­­­­434 new products were entered by more than 180 companies.

Announced in an online video that was broadcast shortly after online voting ended, here are your 2020 ICAST Best in Category Winners.

The overall Best in Show award is given out on the last day of the virtual conference, and is chosen in a second round of voting from these category winners.

Here again is the full list, with some photos, videos, and social media posts to accompany the entries, plus links to the products that are available. Some of these are so new that they haven't hit the marketplace quite yet, but they will soon.
