New online video show how to catch popular fish

DES MOINES — The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is creating a new series of online videos to help beginning anglers to catch more fish.

The first video, an introduction to crappie fishing, focused on the how to fish for crappies during the spawn, which is currently underway. Catch Crappies NOW, can be found at www.iowadnr.gov/fishing in the tab on the right side of the screen.

“This new series is designed to teach fishing to those who have little or no knowledge of how to do it through format that they are comfortable with — Web videos,” said Joe Larscheid, chief of Fisheries for the Iowa DNR.

A fisheries biologist will walk viewers through tackle and bait selection, how to find the right location, when the fish will likely be there and what resources the DNR has that can help them to catch fish.

Videos on how to catch bluegills, largemouth bass and channel catfish will be uploaded later this spring.

“Our intent is to get these videos online while fishing is peaking so viewers can use the tips to have success,” Larscheid said.
