And he still would. Not sure why hes not on the show. There would be no need to create fake drama with him.

That was an impressive fish by all accounts. Marciano should have sold him the baits.

I enjoy the show, guys who I have met from the show have been nothing less then gracious, especially Dave C (we have the same day job) and I fully realize everything is done for entertainment value, I get it.

The one aspect of the show, that IMO jumps the shark a bit is the drama of the guys standing around waiting for the “PRICE” especially when ridiculous $ amounts get tossed out to impact the “standings”. I enjoy watching the boats, fish and I can even take the staged fights, googan drama etc, but the “price” act is a little bit much even for me , and I am an admitted “fan” and in general a silly bastard....

Yep. The "c'mon bubba, we need a big payday" and "we'll take it" (as if there's a choice?), "whaddya thing she'll bring?", and so forth are getting old. Time for the producers to find a better way to close the deal.

"this things a red rubber ball", " i wish i was that skinny", or "its so full of yaki, its gonna contaminate the other fish in the truck"....."its a japanese holiday, theres no market right now".....
