Felt bad for the young guide that had to hand land all those big lakers. It is not fun reaching into a thrashing fish's mouth that also has some trebles hanging in it. I bet he was glad that the jig and plastic was working. It is a lot easier to avoid getting pinned with a single hook. Get the net , John. No really, stop making your guides do something that you would never do yourself! Mrt.

I agree bsh. It's mostly WI, MN, ONT, and da U.P., it's current, it's local guides, lodge owners, guests, and gear.

Except for all the video equipment on those boats, that show could be any of us!

A lot of people rant about John but it seems we're all watching the show so he must be doing something right.  I for one like it.  I like his enthusiasm and I like that it's typically local areas and it's done weekly.  I'd fish with John anyday.

Nielsen ratings do come into play with John's Show....he is second only to Linder's Angling Edge I believe.

Yes, Plano acquired Frabill several years ago already....and slowing phasing Frabill products out.

didn't know Plano bought Frabil... always liked Plano's products, lots of innovative and practical designs.... Thanks for the info 

Gillespie has been amazing at branding his show,  in competition with fishing icons, he's elevated his show to compete with the Lindners, Bucher, etc...  and the sponsors love him... so do kids

In the case of fishing shows, the producer has to buy the time slot from the channel and hopefully offset that price with their sponsors money.  Nielsen ratings don't come in to play as in network television.

Doesn’t a television channel compensate a producer of a fishing show for the right to air his production? At the same time, doesn’t a product manufacture compensate that same producer to advertise their products on his show, or does that compensation go to the television station?
