Three anglers start new magazine, Crappie NOW.

Fill the cooler!

New magazine is a vision of three anglers that are also in the fishing industry. Pro angler, Dan Dannenmueller builds fishing related websites and is the publisher. Crappie expert Tim Huffman is the senior writer and  publisher of six crappie-fishing books. Co-publisher, TJ Stallings is a 40-year veteran of the tackle industry.

All three shared their ideas and it quickly became a vision of a publication for today’s angler. The vision statement is simple. Provide a free, monthly publication for crappie anglers’ pleasure, knowledge, and success.

Crappie NOW is an on-line magazine that will feature:

* Timely articles about how to fish for crappie, NOW

* Feature articles by some of the best writers in the country.

* Destination articles will help you plan your next fishing vacation.

* Interactive articles with links to photos and more information.

* You will see tournament coverage, not just for the major trails but also for your regional crappie clubs and organizations.

* A calendar of events from tournaments to seminars will be a monthly feature.

Our objective is not to compete with printed crappie publications. They do a great job. We’re more about the “NOW” apsect of Crappie fishing, every month.

I had no idea that three anglers from three backgrounds could bring so much talent to the table. Each issue will get bigger and better.  I think of this as “your” magazine more than “ours”. Please let us know how we’re doing. Blessings, TJ

Oh, we owe a big “THANK YOU” to Eric Lambert for his heroic efforts with layout for the web.

    Feb 28, 2013 I just learned about your magazine while watching O’Neill Outside and read the current on-line issue. I will become a regular reader as it looks like a great publication. Question….can I access back issues on line? Thanks.

      Thank you for your kind words Bob. We’re glad you enjoy Crappie NOW. Back issues from 2011 are available in PDF format. 2012 and 2013 issues can be read on-line or as a PDF. Just look for the drop down menu when you mouse over “Read Crappie Now”. Thanks for reading. -tj

        TJ,  Thanks for responding to my inquiry about back issues of Crappie Now.  I feel like I have found a treasure chest full of great reading.  I have fished for Crappie for the last 30 years or so out of a float tube, and your on line magazine contains all sorts of useful information which I can apply to this method of fishing.  We have been blessed in Central Kansas with an outstanding cycle of 5 or 6 great year classes of Crappie in our lakes.  On days when I can’t go fishing, reading Crappie Now is a good substitute.  Thanks again,  Bob Piatt
