If you could choose any TV fishing personality to spend a day fishing with, who would it be? Just thought I'd post a thread to pass the time.

Since I asked the question I'll go ahead and give my answer. I like to watch"hunt for big fish with Larry D." He fishes for the same reasons I do, to satisfy his curiosity about the fish. He's always fishing exotic or third world locations like india and the amazon..

My second choice would be Mike Iconelli. Were both city boys and I grew up fishing inside city limits. It's cool catching fish where people think there aren't any. But if that dude started screaming in my ear....he'd be taking a swim.

I wouldn't want to fish with Bill Dance. You see him catch 4lb bass all day...that's because he fishes private stocked and managed waters...and they feed the fish pellets. I have a 150 gallon aquarium and I have no desire to throw a line in there(well maybe every once in a while)

larry dahlberg is cool but mike iaconelli is a whiny **** he is so overdramatic i would not enjoy that at all he is my least favorite fisherman there is hes cool and a great angler but any guy who stomps or breaks rods over his knee that are over 500 dollars is no good

i hate watching that show no offense but he is sooo annoying how he freaks out,- everyone in bass fishing knows the iaconelli freak out he reminds me of a elementary kid screaming all the time



i think i would pick .....:think:.......MARK ZONA FROM WORLDS GREATEST FISHING SHOW he is a great guy a down to earth bass guy who announces for b.a.s.s tournaments his show is great and my favorite show on t.v

Are we still talkin about fishin'?

My aunt Cathy fishes redfish tournies "down florida"(that's how we say it). It's hilarious when she hangs her butt over the rail to pee...

My thoughts on it pretty much mirror what you said. Dahlberg is awesome!

Good to see a "Jersey Boy" get some props out here. He is a bit of a load when he starts screaming, but we all loved "Happy Gilmore, and that is who he modeled his "character" after. Seems to be working, his sponsors sure don't seem to mind when he busts their rods over his knee.

Zona is too cool. Love the fact that he is a multi-species guy. Did anyone see the one when he was fishing oversize sturgeon on the CR in Hood River? Awesome epi.

To add to the "annoying fisherman side", if anyone picks "The Mad Fisherman", Charlie Moore, I will personally seek you out and tip your boat that day. That guy is, well, lets just say he is everything I hate about Boston/New England.

My pick would be Jose Wejebe. It seems that every time he fishes with someone, he is teaching them everything he knows about the fish he is targeting, and is not satisfied until they learn it all. Very patient, and very knowledgeable. Plus, he fishing in the warmer, drier climes. So, if it is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime day, why not be somewhere that the day ends with my toes in the sand and an umbrella-clad drink in my hand.

The same guys I have been fishing with for many, many years. I know what to expect from those guys and a couple of them are probably just as good a fishermen as the people on the "fishin shows".
