TBT - Fishing Shows then and now
2 Thousand lb marlin off the Great Barrier Reef on the same day. On this show they interviewed an angler that caught 3 thousand pounders on the same day.

600 pounder jumping.
Huge yellowfin on long range party boat.
Today's fishing shows look more like an infomercial than a real fishing show. A typical 30-minute show today goes something like this:
-15 minutes of commercials selling overpriced, unnecessary boats, tackle, and accessories.
-10 minutes of the guys in the show promoting the equipment they are using, or telling us what awesome fishermen they are
-5 minutes of actual fishing where they catch 2 muttons and a cero
I haven't seen a show fishing for marlin in many, many years.
