“While the Ford 60th Annual Indianapolis Boat, Sport and Travel Show will provide plenty of emphasis on bass, professional anglers will give additional species-specific seminars throughout the week on everything from steelhead and salmon to crappie, muskie and carp.
America has gone crappie crazy over the past few years due to the species’ wide availability, tasty table qualities, and the rapid evolution of tournament crappie fishing. A dedicated crappie fishing Ask the Pros Crappie Seminar Series, sponsored by B’n’M Poles, will be offered on February 22 and 23 in conjunction with special crappie fishing exhibitors offering great deals on the latest crappie fishing gear and crappie fishing adventures. This panel of crappie experts will help folks crack the crappie code on waters from Wawasee to Patoka and everywhere in between.

He is an 11-time national championship qualifier, host of the Midwest Crappie television series, host of the Anytime Crappie DVD series, and has also been featured in many articles across the country. Russ is known best for his skills in the dock shooting presentation – a technique he will cover in his informative seminars.
Kyle Schoenherr is a full time crappie guide in southern Illinois and tournament pro, spending hundreds of days on Rend Lake, Kinkaid Lake, and Lake of Egypt each year.

He credits his late grandfather for playing a large part in his love of the outdoors. Capps and his grandfather were involved with hunting, fishing or trapping in some way on a daily basis while growing up, and catching crappie was always one of their favorite things to do. Capps is a graduate of Murray State University, where he received degrees in Wildlife Biology & Fisheries Management. He became a Tennessee Wildlife Officer just after graduation, and has over 20 years of experience as an enforcement officer dealing with wildlife, fish, and boating laws, as well as outdoors and conservation education.
