I can vouch for that, Tony. Fish that aren't accustomed to fishing, etc.

I watched last night's episode, and it held my attention all the way through even though there wasn't a lot of fishing involved.

BUT....the absolute number one thing that stuck with me, was the comment Jeremy made concerning those two huge catfish he caught, on his first two casts', hundreds of miles off the beaten path in an area where the fishing pressure was minimal. I can't quote him directly, but the gist was that unpressured fish can be larger, and much easier to catch than those fish from an area that sees more anglers.

This is the same thing that I've said here at BBG many times, but it's nice to hear it from a fishing professional also.

"You may not catch exceptional bluegills in an average body of water, but an exceptional body of water can make an average angler's job much easier".......

It's Palm Sunday - watching the Passion of Christ.
I'll DVR Mr. Wade for later viewing.

Is anyone else tired of Jeremy trying to "solve" water deaths from years ago? It looks like tonight's episode is more of the same. I've always loved this show but i think I'll be watching Cosmos at 9 o'clock and DVRing R.M.

That steel braided line has helped him out a lot for sure but I do remember one episode that he jumped into the water I was hooked instantly loved the show ever since

Joe, it sure seems that way.
There are over three thousand known species, most voracious predators. They are also intelligent (for fish) and nearly fearless.
It's no wonder they are so widespread and successful.

On one show he did, it only took twenty pounds of static weight to prevent Jeremy from swimming and pulling him under. A large cat, also intent on chomping your leg, could give you a bad day.

Seems everyone knows that a shark gets huge whether it be from the movie "jaws" or perhaps shark week on discovery........It's amazing to me how often people tell me that bluegill don't get that big...only 4 to 5 inches right.......just goes to show you that catching big gills takes opportunity, skill and luck and very few people ever get to experience it.........

Comment by Jeffrey D. Abney on April 7, 2014 at 9:02am

I love the idea of "the pursuit of trophy freshwater fish"........I'd love to follow that, no matter the species but certainly would love to see the panfish get some love....
