View Full Version : Midwest Crappie Show Requests

01-08-2007, 07:39 AM
Hi everyone. One of the requests from crappie.com members was to do a show on appoaching an unfamiliar lake. This past weekend I taped two shows with Kansas guide Chatt Martin. The second show was on an unfamiliar lake and we tried to show how Chatt would fish this. I think both shows will be nice, but this was a good one to tape. Thanks for the request!!

Also, thanks to crappie.com member Eric. Eric lives in Kansas and voluntered to run a camera boat for us. I really do appreciate that!

Folks, if you want some GREAT wintertime fishing, Chatt can put you on them!! And believe me, there is never a dull moment when fishing with him!!!

Good Morning Russ. Hope your trip home was fine. The fisher that helped us was Eric Cruce, :D a local fisher that was going to fish with me that day if you hadn't come out Friday. I thought it was wonderfull that he was willing to help run the camera boat as well as fishing next to us changing colors and depths to keep us busy catching. I'm sure his trip to Cabela's got him a Lowrance color graph as well as your trip there, to get some Power Pro line. Sure is nice to have Cabela's so close. Great show!!! If I have to toot my own horn. Watch it closely fishers,,,, you'll actually see Russ catch:eek: a 15in CRAPPIE!!! on a new lake for both of us. Gotta love the wintertime crappie fishin' . Again,,,,THANKYOU!!! <*)}}}><

When and where will be able to see this show...I do not think we are able to get your shows on here....Is there a way to get a hold of those shows? I know Chatt..He has taught me a lot already in the past year so I know that he will put on a good informative show and I am really interested in the new lake show....Thanks.

I had a great time friday, fishing with Russ and Chatt!! I ran Chatts boat as the camera boat. I got to observe the pros' at work, that was great. What really blew me away were Chatts' LOWRANCE color graphs, the detail is unreal!! I went out that night to cabelas and bought 2 fishmark 480's. I was intimidated to fish with these guys, but this is not rocket science. Winter time deep water crappie fishing is all about boat and jig placement. The next day with my LOWRANCE i finder pro GPS, and my new EAGLE graphs. I was able to return to some of Chatts places I marked on friday and get a limit of nice crappies easy. If any of you guys and gals want to learn these winter time teqniques get the video or take a day trip with Chatt, you wont be dissapointed. By the way I think I'll return to Cabelas and buy a LOWRANCE color graph for my console, the color really make a difference on your initial graphing of spots. Thanks again Chatt and Russ, This was really an honor for a crappie fishing maniac like myself. ERIC

If you can not get the Sportsman Channel, they do now offer on line viewing. I think it is about $4 a month. Another option is that if you have a local station that is interested in airing the series, I will provide the shows for them.

The only other options is that we do offer them on DVD.

Hope this helps!

Hi Chris,

We have 8 of the 13 totally produced and ready to go! As soon as the other 5 are ready, we will get them on the website. Should be a couple weeks more. Glad you liked the other series!!

Can't you just upload your video into a MP3 file,and upload a clip,so we can also view the footage on Crappie.com?

I think you would have quite the audience on here!

I would have no problem doing that, however, I hate computers and don't even know how to put a picture of my new boat on here!!!!

Russ is kind of the same way when it comes to fishing too. Why do you think he gets guides all over the country to take him fishing. He uses the excuse that he is filming a TV show just to get free guide trips. LOL It took me 7 or 8 free trips to figure out what he was doing. hahaha :D
Just kidding. He does catch a fish if some one will set the hook and give him the pole. :p

No way. So you are saying if I get my video recorder out I can have guides take me fishing for free by saying I'll put them on TV. COOL
