Least favorite fishin' tv shows

Sorry Pete Z.- I can't stand the Courtney and Shelly show. Where did they get these gals? "Oh yah, dat's a nice one der Shel... I'd say aboooout two pounds." What other shows you all dislike and why?

Even though I watch it, midwest outdoors is pretty bad. It's basically just one big commercial. But fishing shows are kind of like pizza, even if it's bad it's still pretty good.

A pox on your house Scoot! Running down those nice young ladies, and their charming Canuck accents!

Ah well. For me, I'd have to say I absolutely can't stand the Bob Mehsikomer (sp?) "Simply Fishing" shows. I'm sure he's a nice enough guy, but I don't care for the way he barks orders at his "guest" fishermen, as if they were total morons.

Almost every time I go fishing in the summer, once during the day I have to look at someone out there and say "That person watches waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much TV." You know what I mean? If I had to pick, I'd say if I ran across a bass fishing show while channel surfing, I'd skip past it just like I skip past QVC.(Can you tell I'm not into that?)...........T

I know this isn't freshwater, but I hate Walker's Kay Chronicles. This guy drives me up a wall. It's like a english and short story writing class, with as little meaningless fishing as possible. I think it sucks!

I second that Walker Kay show. I don't like and Czonka show either. It's just him fishing for trout in some stream in Canada that I'll never see.

Dimestore fisherman is worth about a dime.

Man, wouldn't it be great to have a FM fishing show hosted by roatating Pro Staffers? You reading this Rick? Watch Matt Johnson slam slab winter crappies on local lakes! Adam Alder on late winter MilleLacs perch techniques! Spring time channels on the Red by Ed! Now there's a show for the Outdoor channel!

BJ Outdoors is purty bad, just watching those guys and how they handle fish makes me sick to my stomach. I can't beleive they even have a show, then again it looks like it's all taped on a hand held Camcorder.

The absolute worst fishin' show was "fishmasters" Anyone remember that one, with two nutty waynes world wannabees that were always trying to sneak into private ponds, and one of them always wore a orange life jacket, even tho he never went in a boat, and the only time I ever saw them catch a fish it was a crappie on the opening of the show, and I don't even know if he got it in!

The midwest outdoors guy who says, "in fact its a keeper" drives me nuts.

What about our buddy, Brett Winkler? Is his show still on Saturday mornings? A man, his boat, a camera with tri-pod, and countless snakes while bass fishing some obscure metro pond. Nice guy, but more of a public-access show. I'll pass on the bumper sticker or hat, Brett.
Midwest Outdoors is ok, or should I say the ad for Minor Bay Lodge spiced in with a few minutes of actual fishing. Who's that ham-n-egger who says "it's a keeper?"
BJ is horrible--makes Winkler look like Bill Dance.
Man, that felt good.

Who remembers "Fishing with Virgil Ward"
I was pretty young back then but I do remember he would run a lure in an aquarium to show you how to "work it".He had some pretty thick glasses on him too.
Classic stuff!!!

Bj Outdoors is the worst. How can a TV station even consider putting that show on?
Even Power Rangers might be better...
I do like Wisconsin Waters and Woods!

Oh how I miss the Outdoor Channels.

Dimestore fisherman (dimebag fisherman) features two stoned looking dudes out fishing. And the blonde one looks like David Lee Roth and is way too loud for his own good. Mellow out dude and quit eating those mushrooms! smile.gif

Critizing Courtney and Shelly? This is what I need in my life, a female fishing partner that is not afraid to bait the hook and cleans up real nice!

The one I don't enjoy is Bill Dance. I respect him, and he is a great fisherman, but he just seems tired after fishing the same species for 20 years all by himself. Just seems to be the same show recycled.

Anything with Roland Martin gets out the channel changer. His compulsive need to weigh everything to prove his was bigger, (might be something Freudian there!) bugs me. Mehsikomer's barking orders wouldn't make him a good fishing partner but ya gotta admire anyone from Hugo that can get his own fishing show. Angling Edge, In-Fisherman, Joe Bucher, entertain me AND teach me!!

Jimmy Houston.....the worst ever. That high pitched cackling laugh turns my stomach. At least some of those low budgeted regional shows have an excuse, but Jimmy Houston is just plain awful.

BJ - beating up trophy's since 1995" - Outdoors

John - "I'm drunk on Pabst" - Gillespie

Tony - "wake me when it's over" - Dean

Who told Babe Winkleman anyone cared what awful food his gal had cooking? They are a perfect match. The two stiffest human beings on TV.

I'll throw in my $.02.

My biggest pet peeve, for hunting or fishing shows, is when the guy on camera keeps asking the cameraman "you got him, can you see him, have you got him, can I take him now, etc". Drives me nuts. Edit that dump out before it gets on TV.

Now my least favorite shows ...
BJ Outdoors is the worst, unless you like seeing guys reel fish up to the end of the rod, then hoist them out of the water by grabbing the rod 12" from the tip, then drop the fish in the floor of the boat.

Bob Meshikomer (I think I spelled that wrong) would have a lot better show if he ever gave his guests any camera time, if he'd stop giving orders, and if he'd quit breathing heavily into the microphone every time he unhooked a fish.

The Capra's show gets on my nerves. Might be my imagination, but do those guys seem more and more smug every time they get on TV? And they could articulate a little more for my liking.

Bill Dance does a great job of telling us conditions, baits, water temps, techniques, etc. He never points out that he's on some private pond somewhere, but you can see shore on all 3 sides of him in most camera shots.

Midwest Outdoors is starting to drive me nuts also. Lots of guys have commented on the commercials. And how about some fresh material? I've seen enough of Roger Cormier in Voyaguers National Park, enough of Eagle Lake in Ontario, and enough of Walt and Poppy in Northern Wisconsin. Can't we mix in something different once in a while.

Gillespie is the best. Whether you like his excitable personality or not, you have to admire filming a show one weekend and getting it on the air a week or two later.

Shelly and Courtney sure have nice "scenery."

Those Dimestore Fisher dudes drove me nuts with their screaming, but it was kinda like a car accident, you just had to look at it for a while.

    • Wisconsin's traditional nine-day gun deer hunting season opens this Saturday and with snow in many northern areas and more in the forecast for Friday into Saturday but with otherwise relatively mild hunting conditions it should make for a good opener.Hunters can find all the information they need by searching the DNR HSOforum for keyword "deer." Or new for this year, hunters with mobile devices can download the Hunt Wild Wisconsin mobile app, which provides mapping, shooting hours and easy access to regulations. Hunters can download the app from the DNR HSOforum at keywords "hunt app."Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park has begun to ice over. Skim and shelf ice is forming on lakes and some smaller lakes have frozen over.Photo credit: DNRThis is the earliest possible opening of the season and while it is winding down in some areas, rutting activity is still noticeable with bucks visiting their scrapes and rubs and still being seen chasing does. A reminder that hunters must register their deer by 5 p.m. the day after recovery and registration is now easier than ever online, by phone or in person at registration stations. Search the DNR HSOforum for "GameReg," for details. Hunters can get a deer tested for CWD at no cost and can find sampling locations by searching for keywords "CWD Sampling." .
    • It looks great! Throw a few nonslip rugs down.  It's Winter after all! 😋
    • I converted mine to 1 ton Reese 12v winch. Seems to work well with my light weight wheel house.  
    • Looks great but cold and slippery, I'm a carpet guy.
    • absolutely 100% yes. Like with the augers though, use a good drill. My Ryobi barely does both sides once on a battery, my Fuel is 1000 times better. It's not recommended to go down with a drill, only up. You'll see all this on Nutz w e b s i t e. 
    • I missed it too, the caps always just own us. 
    • Who all uses this system? Do you raise and lower your house with a drill.   I was looking at picking up the 2 speed winchs for both axles and the hitch winch.   Are they worth the money??
    • Great showing by the team last night! It was exciting to see the effort level way up and the new guys seem to plug into their roles well. Much more excited for the rest of the season!
    • I run 6lb on two rods and 4lb on two. I like the (possibly imagined) extra feel on the 4lb for light bites. I run swivels on my rods too, unless there's a very finicky bite
