The 2009 issue won't be available for a couple months I believe (if you're talking about the In-Fisherman one).

I just bought the 2006 and 2008 Catfish Insiders and they have a lot of good info in them, and I think you can put your order in now for the 2009 issue.

We are a sad lot; years ago(I sound like grumpy old man. "Back in the day....") the cat insider edition seemed like it had more to it. Here we are making a thread waiting in anticipation for a zine the last couple years if you would have torn out the advertising and held it up to a light you might've seen through it. And ya I will be buying another this spring with no one holding a gun to my head; just like the year before, ect. It just seems for a special edition that comes out once a year we should want more for ourselves than a glorified pamphlet/newsletter.

Sorry for being the smelly fart in church, but I just want more for us. I'm hoping to be pleasantly suprised this year.

Ya know .... I wish they would start offering the yearly In Fisherman Insiders Series by species, in DVD format.

I think it would be a hit and for the guys and galls that collect them it would make for a nice clean low mass collection and easy to use on the computer.

What do you guys/galls think of that idea?

Ya the February 2008 Walleye In-Sider I saw looked thin. I picked it up, but did not look in it.

I guess how much can you dig up on catfishing every year that has not been put in print before. New products, some big fish, tried and true techniques. Short of them telling us to get off or arises and go out and fish, you wonder what they will have this year.

Always a good read every year though.

    • It might be better to buy a small second unit and link them.    My guess is what you want is not something enough people want to justify implementing.   Personally I have a hard enough time watching a bobber.
    • Welcome to the Forum.  What brand gun is it? Would help to pick choke tubes out.  Size 6 shot should do the trick, but I'm sure more folks will chime in here. 
    • I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option. 
    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
