Todays Fishing Media Personalities

68 posts in this topic

Looking for others opinions here,,,with the assortment of fishing shows on TV theses days ,,,If You had the opportunity to fish with one of them,, who would be on the top and bottom of the list and why?

Al Linder, Dan Sura and Kent Hrbeck would be on the top for me as I think I would learn something ,,with John G and Babe W on the lower end I think I would come away with some thing but our personalities wouldn't mesh.

I dont fish for bass but I would how ever like to view Bill Dance (from a distance) just to watch for a blooper shocked.gif

So who would You fish with??????

I would absolutely love to go out with Al, James, or Ron Linder, and Dan Sura! I would do my best to make my brain a sponge and soak up all I could. I have a similar opinion about some of the southern boys and their bass fishing. I enjoy watching Bill Dance and Jimmy Houston and a few others, but largemout fishing isn't really my forte. I enjoy fishing bass, but I don't give it the cult-like attention the good ol' boys down south do. We're in the walleye cult up in these parts!

I also agree that there would be not as much to gain from going out with some of the other media anglers. But, as far as I'm concerned, I would consider it to be quite a privilage to be able to go out fishing with any of the Linder's Media anglers. For sure.

Top- KVD(he was on classic petterns and another show) or then Bill Dance(he'll put me on the lunkers) and The show with the 1 0n 1 tournament is cool also

Bottum- Charlie moore(themost annoying personi have ever seen)

Thats a tough question...

- The Lindners are going to be a pretty popular answer and who could turn down a day fishing with any of them.

- The In-Fish guys Doug Stange & Steve Hoffman would be great in the boat as well. They also are avid catfisherman so I think we could have a good time.

- Bill Dance is a blue cat guy too.

Any of the Angling Edge staff, the Lindners or Dan Sura. That would be my complete list.

The 3 Lindners are at the top of my list with Al being first.

Babe is at the bottom. John G is close down there too. He's just too loud for me.

#1. would be Al Lindner no question, whats everybodys beef with Babe Winkelmen? i guess he can sound a little cocky at times but seems to share alot of good info, Jon Gillespie would be alright if u had an extra long fuse and a good pair of earplugs with, other wise u could just spike one of his lienie's with a few ritalin wink.gif

Without a doubt it would be Kent Hrbek. I don’t often watch fishing programs but I listen to him every Friday on the radio, he has got a great personality, likes a few brews, laughs a lot and would be like you’re best fishing partner. On the bottom would be the Linders, I just don’t care for the pompous guys.

For me it would be Kent Hrbek and Tony Dean. They both seem like likable guys and Tony could drive the boat while Kent and I worked on a couple cases of beer. grin.gif

I would have to say Larry Dahlberg, just because I know there is a good chance that the fish we're after could very well pull me into the water if I wasn't careful.

If it was only walleye fishing it would have to be Gary Roach. My dream day would be to pheasant hunt with Kent Hrbek and Tony Dean some where in South Dakota in the morning and then hit a spot on the Missouri for walleyes in the afternoon.

Keith Kavajecz and Gary Parsons, it'd be a challenge to name an individual that did more to advance the frontiers of modern walleye fishing tactics more than these two guys.

Another good one would be Babe. I say that because he was at a resort filming a show while we were there. Every evening he came down to the deck overlooking the docks where the guests hang out at the end of the day to have cocktails and shoot the b.s. Babe was friendly and personable, has some great stories, and tells them really well (I'm sure that holds true for a lot of these guys, but I can vouch for Babe's storytelling).

Last on my list would have to be Roland Martin. I think all he would teach me is how to push a sponser.

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!
    • ANYFISH2
      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.

      I really hope they don't screw this place up. I love it out there and have done a lot of hunting there. I sure wish there were fewer horse trails. It shouldn't be so easy for hunters to access all the woods. That makes it harder to get away from the guys who want to hunt no more than 50 yds from a gravel road.    The dunes seems like a pretty special place to me. DNR does a lot of things that leave is scratching our heads, let's hope they manage this place properly.

      Im staying at Arrowwood July 2-5 and looking to catch some 'eyes for a fish fry or 2. Never been to the area before so I dont have much to go by other than my overall knowledge of Walleye fishing elsewhere. Ill probably be fishing early mornings and dusk for obvious reasons, but also because my boat will be used for the majority of the days for entertaining the girlfriends family. Im open to fishing not only Darling, but Carlos and Le Homme Dieu as well. 

      From what ive read and can see on Google Earth, the lakes are pretty clear, and from experience, usually means tough walleye fishing for this time of year. -I grew up fishing Woman Lake in the Longville/Hackensack area and that lake is as clear as they come. The only way we can snag some 'eyes in the summer is to fish the deep weed lines. Is that the approach I should be taking on these lakes? Does dragging rapalas across mid-lake flats produce? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Thanks,

      Gavin.

      Ha, I've read stories about that lake being filthy. And I know about those warnings on the link you posted I just wonder if this stuff is blown out of proportion. Reason being I can't find any confirmed cases of people having mercury poisoning from eating freshwater fish. I know mercury poisoning does exist but can we really get it from fish? You'd think if we could then there would be cases down south where folks are eating catfish from the Mississippi.    We ate a few 30+" Pike during the ice season, I ate more than my wife, and I only did that from lakes that are safer according to DNR and MDH fish tissue surveys. I kept it to once a week for her and I ate the rest. I went over the one meal a week rule several times for myself, but then went a while without taking home fish while the season was closed. I'm not glowing yet haha.    I also don't understand why walleye are always the riskiest fish to eat per those surveys when Pike are above them on the food chain.

      Surely they have a Terrova on the floor. Doesn't matter what size THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME. Also, boat dealers have showrooms with all kinds of stuff mounted on boats.
