Default Mark Davis( big water adventures )

Im I the only guy that tries really hard to like this guy? Just seems like his personality does not fit a tv show. I'm sure he is an amazing fisherman, he just tries to hard to be that guy.

It just looks like maybe, and giving him the benefit, he might just be uncomfortable with the camera. i mean, i wouldn't be comfortable with the camera crew and everything, I'm just out because I like being out. But, who knows?

If we didn't have charlie moore setting the bar for most irritating host EVER, Mark might get under my skin.

Personally I like his shows, like most of them they go a little overboard but still good shows

Better than Housewives of some area

personally, i think he comes across as a tool. but then again, most fishing show hosts come across that way except for Jose(RIP) and maybe the guys on Flats Class. However, a good friend of mine knows Mark Davis and swears that he's a super guy.

it doesn't matter what image he gives off, he gets paid a lot to do what he loves and we all hold a chip on our shoulder for that ha.

I think he's great! Seems to me he presents the show like a real fisherman. Details like tackle, gear, bait, and sea conditions are all part of his detail. Don't hate the player......

Default Big Water

My boys and I love watching Big Water. Mark makes a fishing show actually fun to watch. Mix in George P. and Spanish Fly (rip) and we have a great fishing trip without hitting the water. The kids love when he picks the fish up and puts it in his lap especially the big sharks.

lighten up it's probably not easy having a camera stuck in your face and turning on a "tv" personality. trying to make a fishing trip (90% slow) look fun and adventurous. Throw in a crew that generally boring as heck weather that won't cooperate and it looks like it could be a pretty difficult job.


While I don't know him I bet if you met him outside his TV persona you would find the guy pretty interesting. just sayn.

tight lines

note: I don't know about you guys but since Jose's passing I do find it difficult to watch his shows.

I agree with him coming across as trying to hard. If he would tone it down a notch or two I am sure his rating would increase.

Douche may be a little strong. He definitely tries way to hard to be the hard core angler.

I like the show. Sometimes he comes off as a little bit obnoxious, but compared to some the other guys, he's way better. I watch it pretty much every week.

He doesnt bother me really at all. He has a good show and gets exicted but we all do. I know watching gopro vids of the boats I fish on we get pretty animated and its fun to watch.

I liked Tred's show too and he was obnoxious but it was still a fun show to watch.

he is annoying but if he is a great fisherman then why on every show does he take a charter? real expert. A real know it all , as he thinks he is, does not take charters.I challenge him to go out and replicate last year shows on his own boat with no charter capt. or professional fisherman on board. mark davis is a product others people fishing knowledge and his companies big check book.

You're seeing this more and more on the fishing shows. Cross-platform. This way a host only has to have local knowledge and the contacts to put the show together. Enough content to make season after season interesting and memorable is another thing altogether.

We'll all miss Jose for sure as he had a very simple means about him, knew and enjoyed what he was doing. There will be a mad rush by others to try to fill the void left in TV and product endorsement $'s by his passing.

who the hell is he?

where did he come from?

These TV guys seem to just "sprout up" outa no where. I can see if he's a Bass Master Classic winner, or a Blue Marlin world league Capt. Or even one of those SKA or Striper tournament world champions.That ran into a TV producer one day at the local pub & grub.
