Note From Wade

It’s that time of the year when the bass are starting to move up shallow and the turkeys are gobbling — which means spring is right around the corner. For the team at CarecoTV, this also means that we are on the move trying to capture it all for future television shows.


Our production teams have recently returned from providing support to the largest Texas Team Trail event ever held on Sam Rayburn Reservoir, as well as covering the first ever Lucas Oil IFA Pro-Am Challenge Presented by Cabela’s  in Chalmette, Louisiana. In addition, we’ve been in the field getting our hunting gear ready with some plans for planting spring food plots and trying to locate a few more turkey roosts for hunts that we’ll start shooting this weekend.

 For me, this time of year never gets old as we run to and from the waters to the woods, and we’re hoping that all of you are getting to do some of the same. Remember you can keep up with our daily travels on our Facebook pages and we enjoy seeing and hearing from all of you about your trips afield as well.  As always — good luck on the water and in the woods!

Yamaha Marine offers the perfect motor to replace your old motor!  

Yamaha’s new four-cylinder four-stroke F200 is the lightest 200-hp four stroke on the market and can easily replace lower horsepower or larger V6 outboards, thereby increasing the performance of mid-sized boats. At the same time, when used in twin applications, the new F200 can dramatically reduce overall weight on the transom.
