Mens Outdoors and Dish Network

16 posts in this topic

I'm a Dish Network subscriber and if I am going to watch a hunting or fishing show I always turned on Mens Outdoors and Recreation channel. I tried last night, lo and behold they say it is no longer available on Dish. I flip up and about 4 other channels were taken off, although they were none I ever watched (shop at home channels).

Anybody know why they just disappeared?

The Media Group (TMG) is currently involved in contract negotiations with DISH Network, and as a result, DISH Network has removed eight of TMG’s channels from its lineup, including Men’s Outdoors & Recreation and Beauty & Fashion channels. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes our customers, and we are in active negotiations to restore these channels. Viewers can still enjoy our original programming and enthusiast shows on DIRECTV, Time Warner Cable and other select regional cable TV networks.

The seven new HD channels coming next month plus Fox Sports North in HD which was released last week make up for it.

Ya, but I have found it is difficult to find a cable connection out on the lake in my fish house. The dish works great.

I dissagree Ozzie. I've gone from comcrap to directv. I went back to comcrap because they had a package deal for $99 and they had dvr's coming. After a year they hiked the price and it wasn't worth it. Picture is way better on dish that cable. Mine on my house goes out maybe two or three times a year. Most of the time it's for 10 minutes or less. We have basic cable because with comcrap if you want the cable modem and don't have cable it's $10 more, but if you buy the $8 basic cable (for the rest of my rooms) you save two bucks. Just another way of the monopoly stickin' it to you. Give me more choices on cable companies and I might go back. Customer service for me is 10 better with directv then I ever had with cable. My .02 cents anyhow.

He does have a good point on Dishnetworks customer service its the worst, I have both Direct Tv and Dishnetwork and Direct TV is much better in that Department.

If your losing your satellite signal in the wind the dish is not mounted or aligned correctly.

I have a buddy that had some issues with Dish Network. He asked for a supervisor each time and ended up getting a free DVR out of the deal. Just an idea. I may have to try that myself. Is Dish ever going to get the Sportsmans Channel? We have a new phone/cable/internet provider coming here that provides the Sportsmans Channel, plus The Outdoor Channel in HD. Guess what I will be doing after it is up and running?

Out in the country where you have no other option Dish is great. Just pony up the $1.99 a month and get the outdoor channel. The channel that's being discussed wasn't that great anway. Half the time it wasn't even hunting or fishing.

yeah that channel wasn't the greatest outdoor channel....but on the dish going out when it is windy or stormy they said this is typical......we have had to replace the main reciever 3times in the last 2 months because the fan runs 24/7.....so I have had to set-up 3 recievers and since we are not land lined we have to call and let's just say it is hard to get a person that A: knows what they are talking about and B: is patient to work with you.........I am in the country so this is one of the few options I have and if this reciever goes bad I might look elsewhere......oh well

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips

      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish

      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
