That's the problem HH, I've been laid up about 13 months now. Currently recovering from surgery.  Nothing else to do but sit at this computer, in front of the TV, or reading a book!

I think some of you guys need to spend more time fishing on weekends...and less time watching fishing shows.

Aluma, You are a little off on your prices, A King Ranch F250 with a gas engine lists for about 70K, diesel about 80K.  A Platinum, adds about 8k to10k to those prices.  A Limited is close to 100K. I know because I bought a new truck last year, which will probably be my last, and couldn't see spending that much, settled for a F250 Lariat. 

And the boat Gillespie is fishing out of this year starts at 71k.  I bet he has many more options driving that price closer to 100k or more.  In my opinion, that boat is a modified ski boat and isn't practical.  In fact anytime a boat has molded rulers in the hatch covers, I think it automatically cheapens the boat. Like you said the average person couldn't afford something like that and even if they could, I sure wouldn't buy that.

Number of people are driving around 55000 to  65000  dollar trucks Or more.  How much do you think those king ranch or limited Ford trucks go for. Price have gone up on everything. Way fancier stuff in boats and trucks nowadays. Fourstroke  Outboards with efi are going to cost allot more then the old 2 strokes with carbs. Larry smiths warrior 208 must be 75000 plus. Do I like the prices. No I do not. But I do not see them going down any.

I will admit it as well....John's dialogue and phrases can get annoying.  I do appreciate the show and just turn the volume down :)  Tight lines everyone.

I watch it every weekend and I know what you mean, that it is getting harder and harder to watch.  John hasn't changed but I think it's him that's getting annoying.  It is his show, but he is constantly talking it seams nobody can get a word in, using the same phrases, repeating questions to the guides, yelling at guests to hold up their fish, and lately he seams to be cutting himself on every show.  His bleeding arm was all over his clothes by the end of the show.  He needs to retire and give the show to Blake.

I think part of "more difficult to watch" is all the complaining here... makes you aware of things that wouldn't normally bother you, just part of life, but now you know someone is going to complain about it... subtle, but I think it matters
