It would be great if we had a show where they go to public lakes and show you how to catchum. Most shows go to private or non pressure lakes...like fish in a barrel:D

the still panning for gold...GOLD GOLD FEVER FEVER...That's one of the main reasons I went with a company who DOESN'T carry the ODC. They are terrible.

You would think as many people that fish for crappie that we could support one TV show huh?

No fishing show exists without sponsors. A crappie fishing show would need several sponsors with deep pockets.

I'm not holding my breath.

That is true that Bass torneys keep bass fish a main staple on the OC( everybody wants to be the next Kevin Van Damm sp?), but you would think that with Crappie(panfish) being the most popular fish to catch that there would be more run on T.V.

I think the number of crappie/bluegill/catfish anglers dwarfs the number of bass fishermen in the country. However, because C/B/C fishing tends to be much more live bait-oriented and because the tackle used tends to be much less expensive, it's not the kind of fishing that advertisers flock to.

Fly fishing is a small niche in the angling world, but you'd never know it by the amount of TV time it gets. The "expensive tackle" angle is the only reason I can think of to explain this. The FF shows focus on trout and saltwater because its those fishermen who are buying $600 graphite rods and $2,000 bamboo rods.

I'd love to see Mr. Crappie have a fishin show. He's got some sponsors now, but are they willing to shell out the big bucks for a TV spot? Hopefully Wally is listening...Tight Lines!

Midwest Crappie with Russ Bailey is a great crappie show and has never been filmed on a pond. It is on the Sportsmans Channel. If you can not get that channel, you can always get the DVD's.

Russ's shows are great. He films them on lakes all over the midwest and south with some really good crappie fishermen. Trouble is, I can't get the Sportsmans Channel on my service. DVDs are great, but I find that I will watch them once or twice and then lone them out never to be seen again or just stow them away with the library of DVDs I never watch anymore. I really wish ESPN and the FOX Sports networks would catch on and see how popular crappie fishing is. I live in Ohio. I don't need to watch shows about offshore fishing or shark tournaments or flyfishing the flats. If I lived in Florida, that would be okay. And what do I learn from watching the Bassmasters guys win millions of dollars catching fish I could care less about? We got Wally Marshall, Ernest Patty, Jimmy Duckworth, Todd Huckabee, Russ Bailey....etc, etc. I'd rather watch one of these guys talk slabbin' than any of the other shows out there.

LOL, Crappie fishermen are cheap, and untill we decide to start spending big money on fishing equipment, and new boats every year, and so on, we will never even get close to bass fishing. If the companies that make and sell crappie gear are struggling, they can't sponsor anyone for a show, and be profitable...

I like the Bass fishing shows . It's all good . Much better than the outdoor programing that we had to choose from before cable and satellite came along .

film a crappie show, you'd cover bass and crappie then. I couldnt tell you how many times Ive made tourny bass fishermen mad when catching a 2-5lb largemouth next to them while crappie fishing and in an overloud voice tell my buddy "He sure will make good catfish bait tonight" only to let it go once the tourny guys go around the corner muttering something with "sob" in the middle of it. Never fail to catch largemouth while crappie fishin. Gets on my nerves.

I almost never go bass fishing. My favorite method of fishing is to put a couple of minnows under a bobber and see what happens. However, I catch a tremendous amount of bass that think they're crappie. I guess they think my little crappie minnows make a nice snack. I would really like to see fishing shows that target crappie and bluegill.

See, the way I look at it is that with the price of bass fishing stuff, bass fishermen can't go all the time, thus needing something to do...like watch other people catch bass on TV. Well, with crappie stuff being cheaper (if I can control myself everytime I go to a sports store), we fish every day we can. So, maybe we need to thank them for not putting a show on TV that might keep us in our chair on a day we should be out on our boat.

OK...that was a lame attempt to make us all feel better. Did it work?

Have you seen the Midwest crappie series? (http://myoutdoortv.com/pdk/web/rl-popupplayer.html?feedPID=3vltyg0pQlcbVMxOBUuej46tL oBh5oHx) I think they're excellent and Russ does a nice job.
