Big Fish and Successful Tips Highlight In-Fisherman on Sportsman Channel – Saturday

New Berlin, WI – (April 12, 2012) – Get your bait and tackle ready for a memorable adventure of fast and furious fishing and practical tips! Sportsman Channel, the leader in outdoor TV for the American sportsman, is all geared up to bring audiences a full thirty minutes of consistent “bites” on In-Fisherman.  Host, Doug Stange and other top-flightstaffers patrol the fresh waters of the upper-Midwest in search of HUGE walleyes and “giant” catfish. Catching fish in large quanities and showing viewers how to execute with the best tackle will be showcased during this MUST watch episode. Viewers can watch the non-stop action on Saturday, April 14 at 8 p.m.

The walleye fishing begins in overdrive on Prairie Lake in North Dakota as Stange trolls through the dirty waters and “pitches” the new Rapala Clackin’ Minnow lure for timber walleyes. In six to eight foot waters, the fish start biting early and often as Stange reels in an 18-25 inch fish. A few moments later, a 22-inch walleye bites and gives a battle that will leave audiences impressed with the execution of the Clackin’ Rap.

“There’s nothing quite like pitching a new lure, and the Clackin’ Minnow was certainly a big hit,” said Doug Stange, Host of In-Fisherman. “This lure is very effective and I really enjoyed using it as I caught several big walleyes that put up a good fight. I believe we shouldn’t mess with success – especially when you come across a good lure.”

The fishing action continues on the Red River in Grand Forks with new bait and new species. Dr. Rob Neumann and Captain Brad Durick are fishing for catfish during autumn months. The men begin using “Lazer Trokar” hooks and the results are immediate as both guys reel in 6-8 foot catfish. After changing bait to “suckers,” the bites kept coming as Durick fought an 8-foot “ugly stick” catfish that will leave viewers in awe!
