Famous fisherman tv-shows
- Bill Dance Outdoors
The man with the orange “T” on his hat for his beloved University of Tennessee and the home state has been a timeless institution as the host of this sport fishing show. It debuted in 1968, and over the years Dance has entertained viewers with an educational, humorous and at times offbeat way of having a blast with fishing and learning about outdoor products. The three-time B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year has always believed that it’s not how many fish you can catch but how you catch them, and he demonstrates his tricks of the trade every week.
Fishing for bluefin tuna is a way of life for many residents of Gloucester, Massachusetts. `Wicked Tuna’ takes viewers into the unrelenting North Atlantic waters infamously spotlighted by the novel-turned-feature film `The Perfect Storm’, to follow captains who are relied upon by their families, their shipmates, and by Gloucester itself, to haul in boatloads of the large but elusive bluefin. The pressure to deliver is unforgiving – the fishing season is short and tuna populations are dwindling – but one “monstah” catch can reel in just as large of a payday.
Jeremy Wade is not a fisherman; he’s an `extreme angler’ in search of the biggest and most dangerous freshwater fish, the kind with a taste for human flesh. This action-adventure series also features Wade illustrating how these river monsters are constructed to kill.
Before complaining about the market price of Alaska king crab, check out this gripping documentary series, revealing the mortal perils and intense discomfort that fishing crews face on the Bering Sea to catch the delicacy. Those perils include 40-foot waves, 700-pound crab pots that can easily crush a careless crewman, and freezing temperatures around the clock.
With laid-back indie film director Michael de Avila at the helm, “Lunkerville” is not the typical hardcore, host-is-the-star fishing show. It’s quite the opposite, actually. Its foundation is the marriage de Avila — as its creator and host — creates between two of his passions: storytelling and bass fishing. He travels the country looking to hook everyday, recreational bass fishermen into sharing their secret casting spots, special techniques and love for the sport. Mike D, as de Avila is known on the series, isn’t the star; the amateur anglers are — the real people with real fish stories.

Famous fly fisherman
Fly fishing may be the sport of kings, but it would seem that many other well-known people have developed a taste for wetting a fly or two. Here is a selection of a few of the most famous fly fishing fisherman.
Clapton caught this massive salmon while fly fishing the Hnausastrengur River. He was using a #12 ‘Evening Dress’, a fly made from green, gold, and black peacock feathers. The Hnausastrengur River has reportedly produced some of the largest salmon in all of Iceland over the past few years.

Tom Rosenbauer will likely hate seeing his name on this list because he’s a humble everyman who never intended to become a fly-fishing “expert.” Instead, he has always acted as a student of the sport—investigating, experimenting, and asking the right questions of the right people, and then sharing that knowledge through magazine articles, dozens of books, and as host of the most downloaded podcast in the world. The Orvis Fly-Fishing Guide Podcast has more than 11 million downloads.
Fishing record 2019
Sixth fish record of 2019
A Carthage angler has broken a Missouri fish record that stood for 32 years.
On May 19, Cesar Rodriguez was fishing at Lake of the Ozarks when he hooked and landed a 21-pound, 11-ounce hybrid striped bass, according to a conservation department news release.
The fish breaks Missouri’s previous hybrid striped bass record: a 20-pound, 8-ounce fish, set in 1986 at the Lake of the Ozarks.
The fish is a cross between a white bass and striped bass. It’s often also known as a wiper.
Rodriguez wasn’t that surprised the fish was a record-breaker when he reeled it in.
“It was just a normal day out fishing,” Rodriguez told MDC. “Last year I caught a 24-pound hybrid in Oklahoma, but I couldn’t find a game warden to confirm it. So, this catch didn’t come as a surprise that it was a record-breaker.”
Utah Catch and Release Fishing Record
Heather Litke was fishing for bass with her husband Ryan Litke, an avid bass fishing angler on the San Juan River arm of Lake Powell on April 9, 2019, when Heather hooked into something much bigger than largemouth bass.
After about a 10-minute flight, Ryan Litke brought the huge striper aboard and quickly weighed it at 35.33 pounds and measured it at 44 1/2 inches long. They snapped a few pictures and released the big striper to swim away.
While the striped bass record for Utah is 48 pounds, 11 ounces and also caught from Lake Powell in 1991, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources deemed in late May of 2019 that her 44 1/2 inch striper is the largest documented catch-and-release fish in the history of Utah.
