Missouri Secrets Tackle

Ten years ago began a vision to produce a series of videos that teaches fisherman, of all levels of experience, how to catch more and bigger fish. The first secret was 39 seconds long covering ice safety. Today these {Secrets” include captivating underwater footage that highlight valuable tools and techniques aimed at making the viewer a better overall outdoorsman, not just a better fisherman. In keeping the “secrets” short and memorable, we are giving both the novice and the accomplished angler a fin, practical education. The success of the “Secrets” has led to additional projects including sport show and tournament advertising and reports for the Angling Buzz website and television show. The Secrets to Fishing is a pilot television season that continues in our goal to teach people how to fish.

Missouri Secrets is dedicated to teaching people what it takes to be successful in the outdoors; in doing so, Missouri Secrets is bringing new anglers into the sport.
