Default Wanna be fishing show.

Before I even type the name out you probably have your guesses.

The show is 30 minutes long and is done in a "tourney" format that is at best a farce. Fish Fishbourne is so animated as he tries to infuse excitement into the show. The rules are a bit unclear but as far as I can tell after three shows, you do not piss the referee off by arguing with him.

Still I watched it so maybe my tastes are in question too.

I DVR the show in question, and whenever Fishburne opens his yap, I hit the "skip" button so I don't have to listen to him. I do the same thing with Marty Stone on MLF.

I DVR the show too... it's not my favorite, but I watch. There have been some very good matches, including Roland Martin against his son Scott Martin. I'm not a big Roland Martin fan, but those two sure caught fish on the episode in question. There have also been some good matches with younger up-and coming anglers vs. vetrans.

I agree the rules are stupid and unclear, and I hate the fact that they don't fish the last period if the the guy who is in control of the boat thinks he is ahead.

(I prefer Major League Fishing, though I know some people here don't like that format either.)

Major league fishing will most likely become the format most clubs will turn too. No live well needed and a whole lot less stress on the fishery.

In event no officials are available to ride along the photo release method with the secret yardstick has been used. Each contestant turns in his memory card at the end of time frame. They are projected on a screen for all to see and contest if needed.

Makes for some fun in a cool dark room after the time frame.
