What’s your favorite TV fishing ad?


FishTracker

Recommended Posts

With almost everybody’s boat stored for the winter except for the die-hards, and everyone just waiting for the ice to form…. I was wondering what’s your favorite tv fishing commercial?

My favorite is the Rapala Fisherman’s Prayer.

“The Fisherman’s Prayer”

“Oh Lord…There he is…It feels like a big one…Please don’t let me lose him…I’ve never caught one this big before. I’ll try not to horse him, and if I land him, I promise to release him…and make a graphite replica if my wife says it’s ok. Thank you for the Rapalas…Amen.”

I like Rapala's christmas commercial. The bass driven the TA staopping at the lakeshore and jumping in.

I love rapala Xraps so ofcourse I like the comercials. CHEWA-CHEWA-CHEWA-CHEWA, their not funny or anything. But my freinds and I always imitate the sound when we use them, and it makes for a good laugh.

Just when you thought you've heard every topic on here, "whats your favorite ad" comes up. I Love FM.

When I was young I used to love those Blue Fox commercials. They were the ones that had the Lure taunting the bass in the water until the bass hit it. I pestered my dad for a long time before he finally got me one and it was the only thing I would fish with.

I like the old MinnKota (or was it MotorGuide) when "Grandpa" gets his new fishing buddy, "Get in the boat Bobby..."

The best is the one where 2 guys are fishing a long time and one casts his arm right off into the water. I think it was for a line, I could be wrong

I thought we had talked about this before.

None the less, my favorite is the Mercury Outboard motor commercial. Where the 2 guys are driving around and then the drivers clothes rip off because they are going so fast. Hillarious!!

Hey Capt'n, that commercial was the Evinrude E-Tec...and it was a funny one at that.

My ultimate favorite was the Evinrude commercial where the E-Tec dealers were kicking the owners of other new outboards in the privates. laugh.gif

I preffer the one with the guys getting kicked in the groin as well. But my absolute favorite is the Rapala commercial.

"Lord, they're he is. I think he is a big one. I promise not to horse him; and if I land him, I promise to release him and have a fiberglass replica made; if my wife will let me. Oh, and thanks for the Rapalas. Amen"

Lots of good ones but I gotta go with the Storm commercial where the guy gets the 500lb bass on which jumps and then he yells,"Get the net", sweaty face and all. Classic.

Mine was a stren commercial:

Doctor and two nurses are in surgury. They are just finishing up, doing the stitches with monofilament line. Dr. finishes up, they turn away and the nurse says, "Nice work doctor." Then, in the background you hear "Twing"...Twing Twing... and a heart come flying out of the patient.

Next time, better use stren.

How about the old Trilene Commercials with Al Lindner. In the tree trunks, gets caught up, leans on a dead deadfall, it breaks, he goes in.

The "Rapala Fisherman's Prayer"

Also Rapala Skitter Pop Commercial that starts out with the really happy song as the lure works the water (Howdy-do, it's a great day we're seeing...howdy-do it's a great day for bein' Howdy-do it's a...) and then the water erupts and the lure vanishes in dramatic music. LOL!

I saw one this weekend that cracked me up and creeped me out at the same time. I wish I could remeber what the ad was for.

Ayhoo, this guy is going to give a bass a kiss before he releases it. In super slow motion, their lips meet. It is in super slow motion, so the way it is filmed, it is almost erotic looking. Their lips slowly meet, and they kiss long enough for the viewer to be a tad uncomfortable. When they begin to pull away, a bit of fish slime connects them as they part, finally breaking.

Odd, but I was laughing pretty hard.

Definitely the E-tec ad. I laugh every time!

I like the rapala prayer commercial too though.

I saw a new Rapala commercial this weekend that was pretty good. You see a scene of a float plane going over Canadian waters and all of a sudden you see a guy fall out of the plane and into the water. Next you hear, "Don't be the guy who forgets the Rapala's".

I love the Wisconsin Cheese ad, where the fish swims up with a plate of cheese, puts it on the ice in front of an ice fisherman, and the final scene shows the fish with a rod and reel, fighting the big one! laugh.gif

      I might have missed a guess, but here are the ones that I noted:   JerkinLips – March 27th, then April 7th Brianf. – March 28th Bobberwatcher – April…. MikeG3Boat – April 10th SkunkedAgain – early April, then April 21st   Definitely a tough year for guesses, as it seemed to be a no-brainer early ice out. Then it got cold and snowed again.

      MN DNR posted April 13 as Ice out date for Vermilion

      On the south end...   Lots of ice on the main basin, but it is definitely deteriorating.  Some anglers have been fishing the open water at the mouth of the Rainy River in front of the Lighthouse Gap.  The rest of the basin is still iced over. Pike enthusiasts caught some big pike earlier last week tip up fishing in pre-spawn areas adjacent to traditional spawning areas.  8 - 14' of water using tip ups with live suckers or dead bait such as smelt and herring has been the ticket.  Ice fishing for all practical purposes is done for the year. The focus for the basin moving forward will be pike transitioning into back bays to spawn,  This is open water fishing and an opportunity available as the pike season is open year round on Lake of the Woods. The limit is 3 pike per day with one being able to be more than 40 inches. All fish 30 - 40 inches must be released. With both the ice fishing and spring fishing on the Rainy River being so good, many are looking forward to the MN Fishing Opener on Saturday, May 11th.  It should be epic. On the Rainy River...  An absolutely incredible week of walleye and sturgeon fishing on the Rain Rainy River.     Walleye anglers, as a rule, caught good numbers of fish and lots of big fish.  This spring was one for the books.   To follow that up, the sturgeon season is currently underway and although every day can be different, many boats have caught 30 - 40 sturgeon in a day!  We have heard of fish measuring into the low 70 inch range.  Lots in the 60 - 70 inch range as well.   The sturgeon season continues through May 15th and resumes again July 1st.   Oct 1 - April 23, Catch and Release April 24 - May 7, Harvest Season May 8 - May 15, Catch and Release May 16 - June 30, Sturgeon Fishing Closed July 1 - Sep 30, Harvest Season If you fish during the sturgeon harvest season and you want to keep a sturgeon, you must purchase a sturgeon tag for $5 prior to fishing.    One sturgeon per calendar year (45 - 50" inclusive, or over 75"). Most sturgeon anglers are either a glob of crawlers or a combo of crawlers and frozen emerald shiners on a sturgeon rig, which is an 18" leader with a 4/0 circle hook combined with a no roll sinker.  Local bait shops have all of the gear and bait. Up at the NW Angle...  Open water is continuing to expand in areas with current.  The sight of open water simply is wetting the pallet of those eager for the MN Fishing Opener on May 11th.   A few locals were on the ice this week, targeting pike.  Some big slimers were iced along with some muskies as well.  If you like fishing for predators, LOW is healthy!

      Early bird gets the worm some say...   I have it on good authority that this very special angler caught no walleyes or muskies and that any panfish caught were released unharmed.

    • CigarGuy
