Featured Guests: JP DeRose, CatDaddy, Tyler Scales, Fred Diaz

This week on The Revolution with Jim and Trav presented by Outdoor Channel, Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network and MyOutdoorTV, we'll tackle the ins-and-outs of "February Fishing". Phoning in to dish all things fish will be JP DeRose of Breaking Boundaries, the Kansas Cat ManCatDaddy, PRCA Bareback rider Tyler Scales and Division Vice President and General Manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc., Fred Diaz.

JP DeRose is the host of JP DeRose Breaking Boundaries on World Fishing Network. Tune in to The Revolution with Jim and Trav as JP joins Jim and Trav to talk about making fishing affordable so the average person can purchase the gear they need to get started, without breaking the bank. JP will discuss Shimano's series of tournament ready rods and reels that perform great, but at a reasonable price point. An angler can spend a fortune in fishing gear and tackle, but before that investment will translate into more fish in the boat, you have to know what you are doing. To catch fish with anything but luck, a person needs to have a basic understanding of the fish species they pursue, the body of water they are fishing, the equipment they are using and more. "You can have the best of the best of equipment. But, there is no replacement for experience and time on the water," JP says. Having the right gear, reading everything you can, watching videos online - those are all great resources, but those don't replace experience. JP says that time on the water will give you the know-how to recognize subtle, or not so subtle, changes and how to adapt to them accordingly. Tune in for more from JP DeRose.

Kansas is home to big catfish and the legendary fisherman and guide, CatDaddy. Spending more days on the water than he does off, CatDaddy knows his home waters like the back of his hand. Tune in as CatDaddy talks about the February catfish bite and the potential for tremendous 100+ pound trophy catfish on several bodies of water in Kansas. "Milford, it's the biggest lake in the state of Kansas and has the biggest blue cats in the state of Kansas," CatDaddy says. In the past, the Department of Wildlife and Parks released blue cats into several lakes to help destroy zebra mussels and, as a result, CatDaddy says they've helped with that invasive population, but they've also acted as a draw as a great game fish for avid fisherman. So, how do you get one of these slobs on your line? CatDaddy says that right now they are hitting on cut shad and will continue to stay in this pattern for a while. The smaller fish, 5 to 20 pounders, are back in the flats and the shad are moving into the shallows. With this activity, CatDaddy says this is the place to be. "Smaller bait will get you a lot more fish, a lot quicker. Right now is the time to go out and catch them blue cats." Listen this week to find out more about how to get a big catfish on the other end of your line or better yet, how to book a trip with the master himself.

Tyler Scales is a PRCA bareback rider. The life of a career cowboy is busy and spent on the road traveling from one rodeo to the next, chasing gold buckles and the yellow bucking chutes of the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas each year. Bareback riding doesn't come without its own set of risks and Tyler knows all too well that injuries are all part of it. When he isn't in the arena, Tyler is also an extreme outdoorsman with a love of hunting and fishing. He packs his fly rod when he travels and is always looking for a body of water to stretch a line and relax. Tune in to find out more about this Professional Cowboy and his passion for the outdoors.

The all-new Nissan TITAN has been welcomed with a great reception from the public and media alike. Most recently the Nissan TITAN half-ton won the prestigious MotorWeek Drivers Choice Award as well as TRUCK TREND magazine's "2017 Pickup Truck of the Year". The team at Nissan has worked tirelessly to bring great trucks to the market with an emphasis on premium quality. "When we decided that we were going to bring 5 new TITAN products to the market, we knew that quality had to be an absolute premium. So, that's why we methodically planned a very slow ramp up of this truck and these offerings, to make sure the quality did not suffer one bit. In doing so, we have the confidence in being able to put a 5-year/100,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty on our trucks," says Fred Diaz, division vice president and general manager, North America Trucks and Light Commercial Vehicles, Nissan North America, Inc.

The most recent addition to the TITAN line-up is the 2017 TITAN King Cab which enables Nissan to now cover 85% of the truck segment. The TITAN half-ton is powered by Nissan's new 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance® V8 or a powerful 310-horsepower Cummins® 5.0L V8 Turbo Diesel mated to a heavy-duty 6-speed Aisin automatic transmission. The TITAN XD has a maximum towing capacity rating of more than 12,300 pounds when properly equipped. The King Cab also offers some great features like a folding seat option as well as the seat delete package, giving drivers the choice in how they want to use their space to better carry and secure their gear and cargo. "It looks great, works like a truck is supposed to and you have worry free driving for 5 years/100,000 miles. There is no other manufacturer in the entire industry that even comes remotely close to offering that kind of bumper-to-bumper warranty," says Diaz. Tune in to The Revolution to hear more about the Nissan TITAN King Cab.
