If increasing the size of your catches is important to you, if you
are interested in out-of-the-box big bass techniques and unorthodox
strategies, if you want to access information that will lead you to the
trophy wall of your life, then join Big Bass Hunters Chuck Bauer and
John Deckard for their monthly teleclass called Trophy
Thats correct, starting in March 2002 and every
month thereafter, Chuck and John will join many others around North America for a
one-hour, once a month interactive and discussionary conference call.
Each call will feature Chuck and John as the facilitators, a specific
topic will be covered for the first thirty minutes of the call, and the
back end thirty minutes will be for open question, answer and
Whats even better, there is no cost for this one hour call except
for what you pay on your normal long distance rates. So, here is an
example of what your investment would be:
- .06 cents per minute long distance rate
(adjust based on your rate)
- 60 minutes
- $3.60 per call - your investment
Ask yourself this, what is it going to cost you by not being on the
WorldRecordBass takes care of the conference call
time, phone number and the time invested by the two nationally known Big
Bass Hunters. So, for the price of a spinnerbait, you can come together
with other bass fishermen all across North America to take advantage of
this useful information.

Have questions about Trophy Talk?
JUST WHAT IS TROPHY TALK?
Trophy Talk is the bass fishin virtual classroom of
the new millennium. Thanks to advances in telecommunications,
bass fishermen dial-in for training classes. You learn from the convenience
and safety of your own home or office! When you get a group of fishermen who are
ready to learn, the hour is packed with ideas, suggestions, and
CAN YOU REALLY LEARN VIA THE TROPHY
Yes. It's high tech and high touch. It is a revolutionary medium for
teaching and learning. We've received only positive feedback from others
about this learning and communication environment.
WHO BENEFITS FROM TROPHY
Any fisherman who wants to be challenged with new ideas and
strategies. Beyond that, these classes help you get focused on practical
skills and ideas that will help you catch more Trophies! Many times,
it's a matter of simply modifying small things that, over time, make a
huge difference in the size of your fish.
HOW MANY PARTICIPANTS PER TROPHY
There are usually around 25 to 50 people per Trophy Talk. We do have
the capacity for up to 150 participants.
WHAT IS MY TIME COMMITMENT?
Each Trophy Talk is usually one hour. Beyond that, Chuck and John
just might give you homework assignments that you will need to report
back on for the next class. A small time investment for maximum return.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING A TYPICAL
Trophy Talk is very interactive -- a lot of sharing, questions, and
comments. Each month, we begin with a roll call, then discuss what we
covered the previous month, cover a specific topic for the current
month, and end with an open question, answer and discussion period. And,
though you can't "see" your fellow fishermen, you do hear them. The flow
of conversation works surprisingly smooth.
WHAT IF I MISS A TROPHY
Because you do not have any financial commitment, it is not a
challenge if you miss a class. Beyond that, you could encourage a fellow
fisherman to join Trophy Talk and take notes for you.
Trophy Talk Tech Tips
If you have call-waiting, please disable it before dialing into
Trophy Talk. For most local phone companies, you disable call-waiting by
picking up the phone, waiting for the dial tone, dialing *70 (that's
star seven zero), waiting for the dial tone again, and then dialing the
Trophy Talk number.
CALL AT THE APPOINTED
Please dial Trophy Talk at the appointed time. You will be connected
to the other callers automatically without dialing any further numbers.
WHEN YOU JOIN TROPHY
Those already connected will hear a beep when you join the call and
either Chuck or John will usually say something like, "Hi, who just
joined the call?" or "Welcome, hold on a moment while everyone joins the
call." If you're late, Chuck or John may not acknowledge you. That
doesn't mean you're not welcome. Just listen silently until you catch up
with the trophy topic before speaking.
Please say your name and city before speaking so that people will
have no difficulty identifying you.
Trophy Talk Netiquette
Use your telephone's mute button, if there is one. Background noise,
the dog barking, radio, etc., can be a challenge for other participants.
If you don't have a mute button, arrange to call from a quiet location.
Some people breathe "heavier" than others. Most heavy breathers don't
realize it. (Who, ME?) So, we ask everyone to hold the mouthpiece or
telephone headset microphone a bit away from their mouth and nose,
unless they are speaking. This sounds pretty silly until you're on a
call with a heavy breather. After that, you'll understand why it
If you have a two-line phone, please turn the ringer off, for the
second line. If you don't, and you get a call during Trophy Talk, it is
heard as a shrill noise to every person on Trophy Talk.
PETS (INCLUDING YOUR PET
If you're in a smaller Trophy Talk of 10-30 callers, your dog will
probably woof at precisely the time some comic relief is needed, so it's
not usually a problem. But if you're in a larger Trophy Talk of 30-150
callers, please put pets in another room.
SPEAKERPHONES AND CELL
Don't use them!!! Cell phones and speakerphones are wonderful things
but we ask that you not speak into them when sharing on Trophy Talk. Due
to the poor clarity/quality and the large amount of background noise,
please use a regular telephone when dialing into Trophy Talk.
Chuck and John will ask for callers to share or respond, throughout
the call. However, please wait to be prompted. Say something like, "This
is Chris from Vacaville." Chuck or John will say, "Yes, Chris, go
ahead." Then make your comments or ask your question. Always use Chuck's
or Johns name and wait until they indicate that you can proceed. On
smaller calls, this formality isn't usually needed and there is a
natural flow of people sharing and discussing.
If another caller says something upon which you wish to comment or
about which you want additional information, please go through Chuck or
John . Let them play traffic cop. You might say something like, "John,
can I ask Chris to repeat what he just said?" On smaller calls, this may
not be necessary, but on larger calls, it is an important factor in the
success of Trophy Talk.
Please don't call Trophy Talk before the scheduled time -- another
conference may be in session. If you're late to the call, no problem,
just dial in and be silent until you catch on to what's being discussed.
You may or may not be officially welcomed -- but probably not, so as not
to disturb the flow of the call. That doesn't mean you're not welcome!
If you're over 10 minutes late, be VERY careful about asking questions,
as they may well have been asked earlier.
When Challenges Occur
PHONE RINGS YET IT DOESN'T
One or two things have occurred: you have either misdialed or your
timing is off. Check the number and redial. If still no success, then
check the time. Usually meeting times are listed in Eastern Time (New
York Time). Your time zone within North America:
- 10:00 P.M. -- Eastern Time
- 9:00 P.M. -- Central Time
- 8:00 P.M. -- Mountain Time
- 7:00 P.M. -- Pacific Time
PHONE RINGS AND YOU HEAR A RECORDED
The message may say something like "All circuits are busy, please try
your call again later." What this means is that not enough long-distance
lines are open to connect you to Trophy Talk.
PHONE RINGS AND YOU HEAR A BUSY
This means you either misdialed or Trophy Talk is full. Check the
number and dial again. If you still receive a busy signal, then Trophy
Talk is full and is likely to remain full for the duration of the
