interesting. i see why its so controversial now with 30-40 MILES of line out(thousand baited hooks). you didnt see any of the unwanted catches on film (dolphins) and you know they are scarfing up the bait.

I thought it was a terrible episode, it seemed to be too much drama and not enough fishing. Thumbs down for last night.

Honestly it was better than I expected. If nothing else, at least I learned one more technique for putting big fish in the boat! I thought the shows format was decent. It was more entertaining than the Lobster show I thought it would be similar to.

Was a little disappointing to see how they catch these magnificent creatures. Guess I had visions of actual fishing to get the Swords onboard. But then again this is a commercial operation and it's their job so I understand.

The bluefin was fun to watch. They fought the thing for 3 hours with a winch, thats impressive to me. Hopefully there is some more fishing the next couple of episodes though.

I am still on the ropes, way to much drama, not enough fishing. The fishing you did was pretty intresting.

I really liked it, although I like anything fishing. The only down side is how they play up every little piece of drama. They do it with all these Discovery Channel shows, Ice Road Truckers is the worst. I wish they would just run it as a documentary and not a reality show.

That's amazing how they run for 5 days to get to their fishing spots and put out 40 miles of line.

    • Whatever happened to reinhardt1?  He caught a lot of heat down here because he was so enthralled with Michelle Bachmann, but when he left Sillytown, he moved to the cooking thread, and he was very knowledgeable about cutting and preparing meat, since he was a butcher by trade.  I never spent much time in the cooking forum, but I would read reinhardt's posts occasionally.   I didn't mind Lmitout, but I've been frequenting these forums since the wild & wooly days - back when Jackpine Rob & the crew was on here.  Lmitout was pretty tame in comparison to some of those guys...   One who comes to mind went by the handle "Mariner Magnum"...                
    • Fun time at the river
    • There you go again, calling names.   "senile elders"  "brainwashed baby boomers"   "need the blue pill"     Are you serious dude?   And you wonder why folks don't take your alternative chiropractic talk seriously? 
    • some are still here, just not as busy posting.
    • The administration I referred to was not the Obama administration.  Don't edit me when quoting.  It was the HSO administration. 
    • Like I said I pop in from time to time , not like before. I do remember you rundrave stepping in and commenting on all the babble when the cooking thread crashed, you think that was the only babbling going on here? Hey, your a mod and we're just trying to cool things down, I get that.  In my opinion it came down to the cooking thread was dominating the rest and some didn't like it.  But if you want an answer on politics ,you don't have to look hard..
    • Rage, ok, thats funny. More so making light of rebels transparency regarding not being able to handle differing opinions and allowing his homeboys to throw out as much smack talk as me, only i come a little harder and sensative people struggle with their emotions.  Hence deleting a post with no rules breaking.     This whole post was a story, made up to start something. Nice troll work OP, i knew it a long time ago but played along cause it was fun but now its just a bunch of senile elders or brainwasher baby boomers that cant exchange without feeling like they were talked down to. So soft and zero passion for anything worthwhile, thats why you all need the blue pill.    
    •   Well shistter,  I had to WiKi the curry wurst so it looks like a real deal!   Currywurst (German pronunciation: [ˈkœʁiˌvʊʁst][1]) is a fast food dish of German origin consisting of steamed, then fried pork sausage (German: Bratwurst) typically cut into slices and seasoned with curry ketchup, a sauce based on spiced ketchup or tomato paste, itself topped with curry powder, or a ready-made ketchup seasoned with curry and other spices. The dish is often served with French fries.
