Major League Fishing

Postby muskyhunter » Thu Feb 07, 2013 8:48 am

I watched the first episode and really enoyed the format and the pro's. Really intriguing to see how the pro's do it. Only thing i hated was Iaconelli screaming big one big one...yeah, a one pounder!!!!

I really like the concept of it. I can deal with Ike because after meeting him and seeing how he interacted with my 5 year old daughter I see he is a good person and who can help but to get excited getting paid to do what they love. I think that I like this concept better than taking just 5 fish and then transporting them up to 30 miles just to weigh them in front of a crowd.

Mike Iaconelli is a very nice in person. Very affable and friendly. I think a lot of what you see on camera is for show (and actual enthusiasm).

Agree about MLF being a great format.

I am not going to lie, if I got paid to fish, I would be super excited every time I set the hook.

I love watching Iconelli. I don't care what anybody says. I also got a chance to talk with him and get an autograph. At a B.A.S.S. event last year. He is a class act. Wonderful person. And I like Major league fishing. I am going to check out the online action. Since I don't get the T.V. channel it is on. =D>

Anyone else notice how many fish were lost during the Championship Round on Ray Roberts? I thought it seemed really high, especially considering these guy's skill level. Am I wrong? It just seems I don't lose nearly that many fish on similar presentations and under similar conditions.

It is interesting to watch as it forces them to fish like we often do recreational, just going for the most total action rather than 5 big bites.

I really enjoy the format and loved the first show of the new season. Shame the guy isn't out on the water talking to the anglers and explaining what he thinks the fish are doing anymore though. The one downside to the format is that it is always going to be a bank beating event. Finding fish deep seems to need a bit of preparation time and that isn't available to them. Even when they've fished good smallmouth waters the actual events have ended up as bank beaters because there isn't time to find the deep fish.

The most recent episode, Scott Suggs, Scott Ashmore, Morizo Shimizu, Paul Elias, can't recall the other two was great.
