1 Fishing T.V. shows what do you like on Mon Oct 09, 2017 6:25 pm

When I was a kid I would look forward to Saturday or Sunday morning to watch Bill Dance, or Hank Parker fishing shows. These shows taught me a lot about fishing and really got me excited to head out and try what I had learned.

I am wondering what do you guys like to watch as far as fishing shows go. I have to say the In-fisherman is a pretty good show, but when it comes to watching a fishing show I want to learn. I don't like that there is now, you know the shows that are all about look what I caught to bad your not hear. I think we should be learning not drooling over the other guy's catch. What do you like as fishing shows and why?

I occasionally watch a cable fishing show, but it seems they're all either pro bass fishermen horsing in fish as fast as they can reel, or guys raving about trips I'll never be able to afford, so my attention span is pretty low for those shows.

In fact, more often than not, they end up inspiring me to go to my preferred source for fishing knowledge and entertainment, YouTube.

Speaking of fishing shows that no one watches, I ran into Dan Hernandez at Sav-On tackle. I told him that the SoCal saltwater float tube scene was red-hot. He said, "Really? I don't know anyone who does that." LOL!

I always like Dan Hernandez, especially "The Tacklebox" spots. Sure sometimes was selling stuff for sponsors, but they were great tips and never was selling us $400 dollar poles.  For freshwater I liked Hank Parker back when he just sold fishing. I never was a fan of a lot of the other shows because they seemed to selling me sports stars and I really just want some fishing tips.

When I get home from a 6-8 hr session, I like to flip the tube on to "MLF" ... Major League Fishing.
Listening to the pro's critique their techniques, well it helps me for when I'm critiquing my sessions.

It interests me to hear the pro's explain how they see a body of water and what it is in that body of water that they are looking for, that would possibly hold larger fish and how to successfully get to those larger fish.

It also interests me to hear the pro's explain each of their different knots, their opinion on fishing lines, hooks, their planned to use baits in each changing condition and their casting techniques used in great detail in order to land those much larger fish.

MLF IS ENTERTAINING TO SAY THE LEAST!

I talked to Dan Hernadez several years ago at the big sports show in Long Beach. I was trying to promote my fish taxidermy business by talking and handing out brochures and business cards to fishing tackle reps and companies and to the various outfitters and lodges. Let me just say that Mr.Hernandez was just not a very nice person. Quite rude in fact to me and my adult son. There was at the time a fish taxidermy business that was very popular here in southern Calif. and I believe the owner had kickbacks going to most of the local sport fishing landings, stores, outfitters, and lakes that referred fishermen and their trophy fish to that taxidermist. Hernandez may have been one of these. It was tough getting business from these places. My son and I both walked away and said "what an a__hole!" I've never liked the guy ever since.

I don't get the Outdoor channel on my TV, but thanks to Dan's recommendation, I did find Major League Fishing on YouTube and subscribed. It's good stuff, thanks!

I don't have cable anymore so I stream everything through youtube. User Jon B has great videos about his adventures. He's mostly a bass guy, but does other species occasionally.

I enjoy videos featuring from cast to catch. I learn more in how they are presenting the bait and other nuances that gets lost when people show only the fight and landing. MLF has some great shows and their competitions are very entertaining. Every fish counts!

Lastly, Dan Hernandez does a lot for kids and the fishing community...however, at the end of the day, he's there to sell/promote his stuff at ANY cost.

I used to watch The Walker's Cay Chronicles with Flip Pallot and The Spanish Fly with the late Jose Wejebe.  When Jimmy Houston's on, I can put the remote down for a while.  That guy is entertaining. The same with Mark Zona.  City Limits Fishing with Iaconelli was interesting too.  Made you re-think "home waters."
