    Catfish Connection has this video on sale... is it worth having? Just wondering if there's any good info presented, or if it's just Stange and Hoffman reeling in a few nice fish.

    I just ordered 8 of there movies yesterday, I'll let you know how that one is. I love every other one that I have of there's. I have watched them so many times, I have them memorized. But there do have a lot of good tips and it helps pass time when it is too cold to go out.

    I've got that one, and it's a pretty good video, as are most of the in-fisherman series. Well worth the money.

    ITS, OK

    THEY PRETTY MUCH TELL YOU TO FISH HEAVY TIMBERED AREAS IN CORRELATION TO DEEP WATER

    The only thing I really liked about that video was they were fishing on my home river. If you are just starting out flathead fishing then it could be informative otherwise its nothing we all dont already know.

    Brother Shawn;
    I've found that any of the "In-Fishing" videos from Catfish Connection is a good one for the reference library. Some are better for beginners and some are more advanced so you may get one that is below your skill level but I find on a cold winter day I go back to my books and/or CD's and many times will "relearn" something that I had forgotten or misplaced in my little brain somewhere!:embarassed:
    If you want to know a bit more about any particular video that Catfish Connections offers then ask to speak with "Stacy".
    She is my contact there and if she does not know anything about a product well enough to answer any of your questions she will find someone who does instead of trying to "Bluff" through a question!
    Hope this helps.:smile2:
    Fraternally,
    Coyote1

    I grew up in central IL, and remember when they were just 'Pana Bait Co.' ... I used to buy real nice wild suckers there and terminal tackle like dip baits and worms.

    Good people. Catfish Connection is always great to deal with, IMHO. Kind of a cross between Cabela's and your local baitshop.....

    Shawn, If you already catch 30 and 40 lb range flats this video won't give you any secrets to finding larger ones. Its in the same line as the earlier videos, Lots of rigging and location. The only live bait they can use up in Minnesota is suckers and chubs. (State law)
    If you want to watch a couple guys catch some nice flats buy it. I got that one a few yrs ago, I have all of them lol. I would reccomend the whole series to any member, plus all the books. In-Fisherman puts out quality Info. Start from there, add what you allready know, plus what you learn on here and you can't go wrong.

    yep, but the funniest thing is that they cannot be over a certain length and those bullhead they use in the video are.......oversize and illegal:lol:

    It is fun to watch a video of the same river you fish, that's for sure. I've actually thought about trying that stretch this year:wink:

    problem is there videos don't really translate to rivers such as the Ohio and Mississippi. Finding logjams on the ohio is nonexistent.

    I must protest slimcat, I have only fished the Ohio once but my guide parked me over a huge submerged log jam. Maybe 30yrds long and 20 yrds wide down near Cincy. The fact that it was under 25 ft of water doesn't mean it aint a log jam. Its just harder to find them on the Ohio than on the Muskingum. but they are there If you look for them. They will all fish the same.

    What stretch might that be Pal?!?!!? What other videos do you have?
    I'm ready to do some riding with you this year. I'm tired of being capt. and watching you catch all the big ones.

    thanks

    i did end up getting this video...

    I saw most of it tonight, and have to say it was fairly well done. If you already fish flatheads, there's no real groundbreaking info presented, but still it's a nice overview. I'd like to see them fishing daytime also.

    One thing I really liked, is the first 1/3 of the video is just them running up the river in the boat talking about the merits of one spot over another, and how a lot of anglers get impatient and settle for a marginal spot rather than really find what they're looking for. I've been guilty on that charge more than a few times.

    I'm not as big a fan of In-Fisherman since Primedia took over about 7 years ago, but this was a nice video. The visual films stuff shot on the Rock river is o.k., but not as good video quality, and not as much practical info.
