Generally I like watching his shows, as food is a subject that interests me greatly.

But last night I'm watching a show of his from Hawaii and they go out on a charter boat and catch a maybe 5 lb skipjack (on an 80 with harness nonetheless) and kept calling it a yellowfin, even as the show cuts to footage of actual YFT. There's not a speck of yellow on a skipjack, dude. ****?

I wonder if the natives were screwing with him, even as they cut it up for sashimi they still kept calling it a YFT.

Misidentification of fish annoys the crap out of me for some reason, that's one reason I hate Henry Waschuck...among others...

    I don't watch that show.

    Possum chitterlings does not sound appetizing to me.

    I would like to watch him eat the scent gland out of a skunk !

    Anytime you watch/read on the media something about any arguments you are really skilled you can realize how many BS they say... all of them, who less, who more but all of them.

    Enjoy most of his programs.

    I watched an episode from the panhandle. He was eating mullet roe in a restaurant with a couple of women locals. After he ate the white roe, he said: "That was the most disgusting thing I ever put in my mouth".
    I decided, If that's the case, white mullet roe must be pretty bad.

    Stopped enjoying his shows sometime back when he started sensationalizing anything nasty just to get a reaction.
    I believe he ate yellow mullet roe way back and couldn't hack it, not white. That was a dumb response coming from him ?

    He said on one show that he gags on walnuts.

    I saw that episode
    and was thinking the same thing

    He is clueless as his producers.

    That's it����
