Last night, I finally got around to watching last week's show. I normally defend John but the incident with the young man was nothing short of rude. Yeah, I get it, they have a show to do, but that does not excuse that type of behavior. He could have handled it a lot better and probably wishes that he had. Mrt.

Nubby, your continuing reference to scat ( turds if you will ) confounds me. Do you have a fetish?

So if there was a political thread it would be insane to watch state of the union and then for me to post about it?

I'm not protecting anybody or any show. I just question the kind of people who watch the show week after week and then take the time to come to lake link to complain about how much they hate it.

Some complain and say they will never watch the show again.... but yet repeatedly come back to this forum and complain about it.

Some people state they stop watching the show years ago, but are STILL on this forum complaining about.

Do you realize how completely insane that is??

Then sometimes I point out the obvious like..."Dude, you could stop watching the show if you hate it" .... and they become completely unhinge and start telling me off about how they can watch the show and post how much they hate it LOL

I just can't relate to that kind of behavior..... it's horrifying and sickly humorous at the same time.

No. I haven't watched the show in forever. But I do follow this thread. More or less to see if he has done anything different.

But I'll weight in about fishing shows. A simulated hookset is a very real thing. John G does it. Another person on this site who films a lot of shows does it. It is pretty common. Camera's just can't run that long and catch everything.

Every now and then you can see a guy filming in the Milwaukee harbor. And you will see the fish hit and get hooked, then the lights go on and whammo, here comes the hookset.

I'm not ripping on anyone for doing it, just stating that it is part of the fishing show filming experience.

Oh, and on certain musky shows, there are usually two different release shots. Most big fish get unhooked, picked up, bumped (measured), then put back into the net, then re-filmed while being lifted out, then released. Again, not ripping on the people, just stating that it is part of the filming process.

Anybody notice the one whitefish that they must of put back in the hole to film as if it was a the first time caught. They are fishing in 60 ft of water but they show Travis set the hook and the fish is on the ice in 2 seconds. Not the first time I've notice them do this. JG does this alot especially when he is sitting on his atv.

Maybe I missed that shove if it was that bad. What I saw was no assault or anything that would need a public apology but I only saw it for a split second.

Nubby, Your reaction to folks disagreeing with JG's treatment of that kid is hilarious. It wasn't just enough to say "If you don't like it, don't watch it' Now you start to question a persons masculinity if they don't agree with YOUR assessment of the show. I don't think JG needs a shill like you to promote or defend him. We all saw what we saw and many of us didn't like it. If you feel that treating others like that makes you more of a man, I truly believe you have a problem with your own. Most people have different ideas of right and wrong than you do. Live with it.
