Can you Roughfishermen Help me with a video fishing series?
So, I'm the annoying guy that makes lots of YouTube fishing videos and posts them here and on the Roughfish Facebook page. Sorry if you don't like them. I'm only sharing the Roughfish content now because I'm trying to be less annoying. Anyways, I have the okay from one of the show creators from a YouTube Fishing Tournament Series called 39hrs to do my own 39hrs fishing challenge and I'll need a partner. (If you've watched the show, this post probably makes a lot more sense - I loved the show) This video series is posted on the YouTube Channel Uncut Angling. There have been two seasons so far. I will be following the rules from season two. I'll try and boil it down as best I can. There are teams of anglers (two per team) and they fish for 39hrs over the course of three days. They have a 6 1/2 hr session in the morning and then a 6 1/2 hr session in the evening and do this for three days straight. The goal is to catch as many different species of fish as they can that are 10 inches or longer. In season two, there was a team that fished the Wisconsin area, and they didn't do a good job. Their were so many things they could have targeted and didn't. They were the team furthest south, and had some species they could have caught that I don't think were available to the Canadian Teams. There were four teams total and three were in Canada (Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and Ontario). The team from Wisconsin did catch a big Smallmouth Bass, and trolled in Lake Michigan and were able to land a nice King (chinook salmon) and Coho Salmon. That's about it. I'd like to really show how well they could have done. A few species available that no one caught in the tournament include shovelnose sturgeon, quillback, grass pickerel, yellow bass, longnose gar, shortnose gar, muskie, and flathead catfish to name a few. One note. They only allowed three possible points for suckers. One for Buffalo. One for Quillback. One for all other suckers (redhorses/white...) I'm going make six episodes, just like the show creators did, and fish in 6 1/2 hour sessions. Here's my ideas so far. 1. Troll in Lake Michigan - Possible fish include King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Lake Trout, Brown Trout. I think I have a partner lined up for this session. For all other sessions, I would need a partner... 2. Rock River/Lake Sinissippi in Hustisford - Possible fish include bullhead (I don't think they differentiate between yellow, brown, or black) Channel Catfish, Bigmouth Buffalo (once again, they don't differentiate for buffalo types), Bowfin, Common Carp, and Northern Pike. 3. Secret Pond in Northern Wisconsin and Lac La Belle in Oconomowoc. - Possible fish include Largemouth Bass, Black Crappie, Bigmouth Buffalo, Muskellunge, and Yellow Bass. 4. Wisconsin River - Must haves - Shovelnose Sturgeon, Freshwater Drum, Longnose Gar, Flathead Catfish. Hard but possible - Quillback. Other possible fish include tons (smallmouth bass, walleye, sauger, white bass, redhorse, lake sturgeon, buffalo... Episodes 5-6? Probably another one in the Wisconsin River. Maybe try the Oak Creek Power Plant for Gizzard Shad. Maybe Rockland Lake in Burlington, WI for Grass Pickerel and Perch (I'm not sure if I could catch a 10 inches there). Maybe Lake Winnebago for Drum and Walleye... Anyone interested in fishing with me and being in one of the videos. I want to do well. The idea is to film them this summer, and then in the winter I will release them once a week for six weeks in a row. I'm not going to fish for three days straight. I don't have the memory or battery life in my crappy video cameras to pull that off. Tell me what you think!
