With the water temps dropping into the high to mid 40's it is time to once again change fishing methods. Most anglers will now switch to a well known and one of the most popular techniques for cold weather bassing. It is what I call "couch flipping" and what it consist of is this, you find a very comfortable location on either your couch or favorite easy chair, pick up the remote control and then you "flip" the channels. This method works best and is most popular on weekends but you will also be able to haul in a good catch through the week with the right channels. If you pay close attention to the pattern inside the pattern here you can really pick up some valuable tips from these programs.
One such program that I hope you will pick up information from is one that we are currently trying to get put together. It will be called "Fishing Lessons" and will be hosted by yours truly along with a mixed bag of special guest ranging from local anglers, local kids to some well known pros. The concept behind the show is just a bit different then most of the ones out there. The biggest thing we want to bring to you is the "how to" of what is being done to catch fish. A lot of this will be both seasonal and lake specific. We are planning on including a monthly cooking segment along with product spot lights. The show is scheduled to air on the "PAX Network" and will reach over 1,006,330 homes weekly through air waves and different cable carriers. It will then be picked up by the "Dish Network" for which we do not have figures for. We have shot a small portion of it and have a long way to go. We are hoping to start airing some time towards the end of January 2007.
The one thing we are currently fishing for ourselves is "Title" & "Official" sponsors to be able to bring you the show. These can be either companies or individual persons. This is what is needed to be able to get this entire project put together and on the air by January. We are already working with some terrific companies that will be purchasing advertising and supplying product this coming season and are currently speaking with more. We still have about 3 minutes of commercial time to sell but we are closing the gap.
If you would like to see a good show that will not leave out the vital parts of information on methods and patterns that will make you a better angler, then help us cast this out to prospective sponsors!
