Crappie Master’s Sponsor wins Missouri Small Business Award

Louie Mansfield started making and selling small, feather “Grizzly” jigs for crappie and bream 20 years ago, and while his jigs were very effective on panfish and popular in local bait shops around his home lake, Reelfoot, he pro bably could have never guessed his part-time hobby would grow into what it has become today. Grizzly Jig Company, located in Caruthersville, Missouri, is the largest crappie tackle store in existence and is a destination for crappie fisherman from all over the country.

Grizzly sells everything from rods and reels, trolling motors and depth finders, boat seats and accessories, and an enormous selection of jig heads, plastics, and jigs. Many of their products are exclusive to Grizzly, like their hand tied jigs, custom crappie poles, and locally poured heads and plastics. Grizzly’s annual catalog has grown from a very small, black and white newspaper distributed locally in the late 1990’s, to a 187 page color catalog mailed to over 50,000 anglers across the country. Their website,, has received over 1 million visitors since it’s’ inception in 2005, and they have currently shipped to all 50 states, Canada, and South America.

Grizzly Jig’s success has had a positive impact on both the crappie fishing industry and local tourism. Grizzly currently sponsor’s CrappieMaster’s Tournament Trail

New TV Show Reaches Next Generation Of Outdoor Enthusiasts

In this age of computer games, online diaries and I-Pods, fewer and fewer kids are getting out-of-doors to enjoy the traditional sports of hunting, fishing, and camping. Bass Pro Shops, ranked the #1 outdoor retailer in America by Sporting Goods Business magazine, wants to help change that trend by encouraging kids to put aside the electronics and give the outdoors a try when they see and hear other kids enjoying it on Bass Pro Shops Next Generation Television. The show begins airing at 10:00 am ET Saturday, July 1st on The Outdoor Channel.

Filmed and produced by Bass Pro Shops own award-winning Video Productions team, the show is fast, exciting, and fun. Just what today's kids are looking for. It's reality television, with all the bumps, scrapes, mistakes, and triumphs of real life outdoor action plus plenty of how to for those ready to get out and give it a try. Each week, in addition to hunting and fishing trips, a "Field Trip" will teach kids how to make a bullet, carve a balsa wood lure, build an aluminum boat and much more.

Bass Pro Shops Next Generation is co-hosted by a group of kids who have grown up participating in outdoor sports. Like most of today's youth they all enjoy on-line music and games but what excites them most is a fish tugging on the end of their line, watching a bird dog on point, or a big buck sneaking through the woods. Nothing is canned or scripted with these kids. In the "Diary Cam" segment, the kids say what's on their minds - thrills, disappointments, joy, even an occasional heartbreak.

"It's website television," says producer Dave Appleton. "Lots of fast, high-interest takes that move at a breakneck pace to keep the audience excited and entertained. This show steps outside the boundaries of conventional outdoor shows to compel the attention of young people."

There is also an opportunity for viewers to be a part of the show. The "Braggin' Board" segment features photos of kids from around the country displaying their hunting and fishing successes. "Home Movies" will show video clips sent in by viewers.
