Funny how times change. I wonder how many different names have evolved through the 'who died and made you ___________' statement over the years?!? Might make for a fun winter, cabin fever thread to see how many we can come up with that the various GreatLakesBass.com 'generations' have heard?

Michigan out of doors is a pretty good and informative show. Zona's show is just plain entertaining. Major League Fishing is a little of all to me. Especially when you mix in some good old Michigan lakes.

Forgot about Fred Trost.   He was ok until he tried to be Consumer Advocate against the Doe in Heat companies.   I think that cost him a lot of $$  and his show.

I saw presentation Jerry Chippeata did trolling for salmon with a camera attached to the cannon ball of a down rigger.   Took them 2 days but they finally had a fish come in view and take the bait.

 I to fell for the idea of the indian river burt/mullet, totally pathetic.   meanwhile the facts of fishing runs a close second to being the worst, sad ass humor, horrible music, can stand the host.

Hook & Look by far the best.

IMHO Al Linder has ther best all around fishing show for multi species.  I also enjoy watching Strike King Pro Team Journal and Major League Fishing.  Ultimate Match Fishing has a new season out this year with new rules which is fun to watch.
All in all fishing shows help us to pass the time while the water is hard here in the north country.  There are quite a few to choose from.  Fishing U is usually about promoting products and lures.  They usually catch small fish because they limit themselves to one or two baits the entire show.  I saw the Indian River show.  It was pretty bad, lots of small fish.  In their defense, they fish don't fish many natural lakes so they probably didn't know how to approach it in the given time they had to film the show which was one day with limited tackle (as I stated earlier).  Having said that, I'm not making excuses or knocking down Charlie Ingram beacause I'm sure a lot of people would love to fish across the U.S. filming fishing shows while enjoying the chance to see new bodies of water all around this fine country.

Fishing University is BRUTAL!!! LMAO, I just got done watching it recorded on my DVR.. Got the Full gammit of shows on record to get me thru a couple more weeks until opener.  Every show is all about promoting their sponsors.. I get it, that's why they can be on television, but really... I wonder how much some of these people pull per episode? Better to run the drivethru at mc'y d's..  My favorites on nowdays is "Cabelas Fishermans Handbook" "Fishing Texas" "Bass Pros" & Major league fishing is ok as well.. Cant stand that crazy freaky eyed blond who does the leaderboard updates (she also hosts a show held down in florida for some sort of Tarpon Competition. Also that guy who hosts with the ridiculous southern accent is kind of annoying as well. And I don't have to hear about how great their finder / crankbait / worm / hooks etc etc. are.  These guys seriously sell their souls. lol..

There certainly are a lot of fishing shows to watch these days. A good number of them are tough to watch. I really enjoy the underwater stuff Hook N Look does. The Linder's always do a great job. I would love to see a show from someone on fishing line. What line and sizes to use for the most popular situations. It was not that long ago that mono was pretty much it. You now have so many combinations to choose from it's confusing. A simple explaination with underwater action would be cool for me.

Ultimate Match Fishing is back on and it is right up there with major league fishing.
You can tell that is produced by guys in the industry and not overly influenced by the sponsors.

Don't overlook Timmy Hortons' show.  It is well done and he goes into just enough detail on his rigs/set ups that you learn a thing or two.

Timmy Hortons , Linders, MLF are good. I don't really care for Fishing U or One more cast with Shaw Grigsby. Too much infomercial for me, but I don't feel the need to slam them because of their appearance.  Charlie Ingram just had a top 10 finish in a tournament.  Not trying to be controversial and everyone has an opinion ... but, I think you can voice your opinions; without "bashing" someone's appearance.
