  • Television Fishing Show Legend Jerry McKinnis - S2 E20

    19/10/2017 Duração: 37min

        Dave Mercer set the stage perfectly for our chat with television fishing show legend Jerry McKinnis. I could ramble on for ages telling you all about what Jerry means to the sport of fishing, but why would I when Jerry is more than equal to the task of telling it? We'll set the stage with Jerry's early years as an aspiring major league baseball player. Unlike many, Jerry is a man who takes a moment to learn as much from his failures as his successes, and takes a very great lesson away from his time with the Athletics. One failed career in baseball opened a world of opportunity in the fishing industry; we should all be thankful that Jerry walked away from the sport he loved to bring us closer to the sport we love. Jerry shares with us how he became one of the first ever to produce and film a television show based on sport fishing. From it's modest roots, to national syndication, you'll hear it right from the pioneer himself. We couldn't be prouder to share the story of a many who has made such a mark on t

  • Becoming Emcee of BASS Elite Series with Dave Mercer - S2 E19

    12/10/2017 Duração: 37min

    Before he tells the story of becoming emcee of the BASS Elite Series, we have to wrap up our look at the 2017 Bassmaster Elite Series with the Angler of the Year tournament on Mille Lacs. Dave tells us how he has mixed feelings about this final stop of the tour, and how despite his admitted love for "little brother" Brandon Palaniuk, he hates that only one of the many deserving anglers gets crowned as the Angler of the Year. Last time we had Dave on the show, we talked for quite some time off the record. One of the most interesting stories he shared with me was the story of how he became the emcee for the Bassmaster Elite Series. The man has a talent for spinning yarns, and since it was "off-the-record" talk between he and I, we couldn't share that story at the time. However, before parting, Dave asked me that the next time we have him on the show, I remind him to tell that story. At last, the perfect opportunity had presented itself for Dave to return to the show, and tell this story: We've just wrapped up

  • 2017 Elite Series Recap with Dave Mercer - S2 E18

    05/10/2017 Duração: 38min

    We reached out to Dave Mercer directly following our chat with Brandon Palaniuk. The 2017 Elite Series season had concluded, and we begged Dave to spare us thirty minutes to recap some season highlights, and tell one quick story about getting the Bassmaster Elite Series Emcee job. In true Dave Mercer fashion, he came through with more than an hour of hardcore Elite Series highlights. After some casual banter (which we had to leave in to truly show you what an awesome guy Dave is to talk to) we head right off the top with the first event on Lake Cherokee. Our conversation will carry you from the start of the season right up to the big finale at Mille Lacs where the Angler of the Year was decided this year. You'll have to tune in for Episode 19 to get Dave's coverage of the AOY tournament on Mille Lacs and the improbable story of how a Canadian guy with "no 5 year plan" has become the voice of the Bassmaster Elite Series. It's a story that sets the stage for our next guest, who is literally a legend in the fis

  • Brandon Palaniuk 2017 Bassmaster AOY - S2 E17

    28/09/2017 Duração: 28min

      Brandon Palaniuk 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year joins us on the show for Episode 17. We couldn't have picked a better season to catch up with Brandon, checking in with him after the first event of the season on Lake Cherokee. We were even more fortunate to have Brandon join us on the show a second time to recap the second event of the season on Lake Okeechobee; an event that admittedly didn't go to plan for Brandon. Naturally, we've followed Brandon all year on his journey through the season, and for what has turned out to be a major milestone in his career. Sit back and relax as Brandon takes us tournament by tournament through every stop on the 2017 series. Brandon will candidly share with us his approach and mindset going into each new event, and we'll wrap up talking about his pilot project of having full-time coverage in his boat all season.

  • Alton Jones and Alton Jones Jr. Bassmaster Elite Pros - S2 E16

    21/09/2017 Duração: 21min

    I have to say that Alton Jones and Alton Jones Jr. are nearly as much of an enigma as they are an open book. I know, that sounds very contradictory... In the course of researching our upcoming guests, we reach out to all sorts of folks to get an inside scoop, and we came up empty for the father and son elite series pros. However, their records tell you a lot about these two. Alton Sr. is a decorated winner on the B.A.S.S. tour for decades now, and after winning several opens, Alton Jr. qualified not only for the Bassmaster Classic, but a spot on the Elite Series trail. Quite the accomplishment; so rare in fact, they are to date the only father and son to compete against each other in the Elite Series. We catch up with Alton and Alton Jr. to pick up our discussion about the 2017 Elite Series, and more importantly, we learn a great deal about practice for these events. I've often wondered what the pro's thought about practice, as opinions vary, and some of the habits they have during practice. Some anglers lik

  • Father Son Elite Series Pros Alton Jones and Alton Jones Jr. - S2 E15

    14/09/2017 Duração: 23min

          Father Son elite series pros Alton Jones and Alton Jones Jr. join us this week on the first day of the Bassmaster Angler of the Year tournament. Both anglers have qualified for the unofficial final tournament of the season, but have their work cut out for them to make a last minute charge in the standings. We were fortunate enough to catch up with them just following the Elite Series event on Lake Champlain, so we'll not only get to know this father/son duo better, we'll also get an interesting look into the Bassmaster Elite Series from the perspective of the "old guard" and a series rookie. The Alton's take turns telling us about how they got into fishing, and Alton Jr. candidly discusses entering into the Elite Series sharing a name with one of it's greats; it's a lot of pressure, but he's equal to the task. They'll give us a good look at how the Angler of the Year points work, and share the ups and downs of the tournaments this year. We'll talk about Rookie of the Year points, and how Alton Jr. feel

  • Simon Frost from Frostbite Guide Services - S2 E14

    07/09/2017 Duração: 28min

        Simon Frost is the owner/operator of Frostbite Guide Services out of Southern Ontario. When we left off from episode 13, we were chatting about how down and side scanning sonar has changed the face of fishing, especially for those looking to eliminate unproductive water quickly. Simon shares with us a few of the amazing discoveries he's had scanning the bottom of the lakes he fishes. It's said time and again, that to find the fish, you want to find the structure and the cover. Simon shares his tips for identifying those constructive structures using this amazing technology and gives us some excellent advice on finding those "fish highways". I've never gone fishing with a guide per se, so naturally I was curious about the experience. Simon takes us step by step through the experience you get when you fish with Frostbite Guide Services; most importantly, a full day is a full day with Simon. It's clear he's a man who takes pride in what he does, and Simon tells us when he guides it's your party, but all you

  • Professional Guide and Tournament Angler Simon Frost - S2 E13

    31/08/2017 Duração: 24min

        Professional Guide and Tournament Angler Simon Frost is one of the best we have to offer here in Ontario. I was introduced to Simon by Dave Mercer at the Spring Boat and Fishing Show held annually in Toronto. Simon lives up to his nickname "Frost Man" as he's a really chill and relaxed sort of fellow; that is until you get him talking about fishing. He quickly thaws and the passion for the sport radiates from him. Simon shares with us his story in the first half of our interview; he tells us how he got into fishing, and how tournament fishing turned into his part-time career in guiding. He's an expert on the big water bodies we have locally, focusing on prime areas such as the Bay Of Quinte, The Niagara River, and Lake Erie. Simon makes his way out as far as Lake St. Clair for guiding trips, and no doubt knows the waters well. We'll talk about Simon's love of tournament angling, and he'll tell us about the dynamic between him and his unusual tournament partner: His wife, Melanie Frost. So, as usual, we'l

  • Classic Champion and Bassmaster Live Co-Host Davy Hite - S2 E12

    24/08/2017 Duração: 36min

          Bassmaster Classic Champion, former Elite Series Pro, and co-host of Bassmaster Live Davy Hite joins us again this week! We'll take a look at how the "First Look" segment was developed for Bassmaster, and how that naturally set the stage for a future co-hosting the Bassmaster Live coverage of the Elite Series. Davy talks about how being a professional angler made it natural for talking to other anglers; despite the natural angst of being on the sidelines. The conversation steers toward the impressive rookie class for the 2017 Elite Series Season. It's tough when you put guys who are so close to the action on the spot, as they have to stay objective when it comes to the anglers they cover. But after a quick chat about Jordan Lee and his obvious trajectory of success culminating  with his 2017 Classic win, we move on to how the conversation started about Davy joining the Live team. I sum up this leg of the conversation with one of my favorite observations: Be careful what you say to Mark Zona. We'll wrap

  • Bassmaster Live personality Davy Hite - S2 E11

    17/08/2017 Duração: 34min

          The newest member of the Bassmaster Live team, Classic Champion Davy Hite, joins us in this episode. You'd see him tournament after tournament, always with a smile, but sharp focus on the task at hand. We've all watched him on "First Look", and now we get a chance to watch even more of him working with our other past guests Dave Mercer and Mark Zona. The thing is, I can't really say I knew Davy Hite the man. Davy is a consummate professional; whether it's the way he'd prepare for tournaments, interact with other anglers, or even the way he deals with being and talking to the media. But there is greater depth to the man than what you see on "the shows". Our conversation took a familiar note very quickly, and soon Davy was sharing very personal stories about how he left his job with the National Guard to pursue a career as a professional angler. We're talking about the days before the internet, and the sharing of information, when a career like this was a mystery to all but those who'd already found out

  • Closed Seasons and Lure Recognition with Dr. David Philipp - S2 E10

    10/08/2017 Duração: 35min

        Closed Seasons and Lure Recognition with Dr. David Philipp are on the agenda in this episode of The One More Cast Show. The way seasons are closed during spawn is a hot-button topic for many. It's not just here in Canada, but in many regions of the United States seasons on game fish are closed. We get a chance to pick the brain of a thought leader in this area. David discusses the many roadblocks he's encountered over the years with governing bodies to local angler clubs; the problem often times is explaining the true intent of such efforts, as the message often becomes confused. The biggest hurdle is educating policy makers, and often times, they don't take enough time to fully understand the problem and potential solutions. As we've noted in past episodes, stocking programs are excellent, however, they don't always address the underlying problem. David has a solution to the problem of closed seasons and incidental catches during those seasons; the solution he suggests may surprise you. We'll wrap up th

  • Yvonne Brown of Fishing 101 for Women and Ontario Women Anglers - S1 E1

    09/08/2017 Duração: 19min

    In this, our first episode, I  am joined by Yvonne Brown creator of the organization Fishing 101 for Women. We discuss how Yvonne got into fishing, and what inspired her to start her work encouraging women to take up the sport, learning from other women who love it.

  • Conservation Geneticist Doctor David Philipp - S2 E9

    03/08/2017 Duração: 31min

        Conservation Geneticist Doctor David Philipp joins us on The One More Cast Show. Our friend, past guest, and conservationist Gord Pyzer wrote a revealing piece in Outdoor Canada on the work of this man, which inspired us to reach out and share his story. David is a biologist who is best known for his work in the fields of conservation genetics, reproductive ecology, and more recently the effects of recreational fishing on fish populations. David also shares with us a related study of lure recognition; a topic many anglers and scientists have debated over the years. In Episode 9, David shares with us his early years including his path to becoming a professor at the University of Illinois. We'll discuss the creation of the Fisheries Conservation Foundation for which he is a chairperson. Finally, we'll get an in-depth look at the behaviors of bass through the three key phases of reproduction: Pre-Spawn, Spawning, and Post-Spawn. David's research is fascinating, and we'd all be well served to take the time t

  • Tournament Walleye Angler Gary Parsons - S2 E8

    27/07/2017 Duração: 27min

        Tournament walleye angler Gary Parsons joins us again on the show this week with more secrets of the pros from the walleye world. We kick off this week's show leaning into a little bit of Gary's biologist background. He has some interesting thoughts about the bass angling world's proclivity toward natural colors when fishing, whereas in the walleye world, they are far more willing to try out brighter unnatural colors. Gary has been a key figure in product development with Berkley Fishing, and shares a little insider information about the testing process, particularly as it pertains to color selection. Prior to this interview, we canvassed a number of anglers to get some great questions, and Gary is more than happy to answer them. We'll talk about the strange habit walleye have of carefully examining a lure or bait before deciding to take it. Contrary to what most believe, walleye are not as shy as we may think, and Gary demonstrates this talking about one of his favorite techniques: ripping a shiver minn

  • Gary Parsons from The Next Bite - S2 E7

    20/07/2017 Duração: 33min

        Gary Parsons from The Next Bite joins us on the show this week. If you follow The One More Cast Show, it could be said that we have a decided lean towards guests from the world of bass fishing. Well, what better way to buck the trend than by bringing you a show that's 100% dedicated to walleye fishing? Gary and partner Keith Kavajecz (and of course Chase Parsons) bring us the long-running television show "The Next Bite". If you're not familiar with the show, first, shame on you, and second, it's a show dedicated to fish with teeth. On every show the guys hunt down everything from walleye to musky, and bring it all to the comfort of your own home on network television, the world fishing network, and online. We catch up with Gary to talk about his past and how he came into the fishing industry. We'll dig deep into the walleye fishing tour, and his own past experiences participating in those tournaments. Tournament walleye fishing is something I've never done and Gary takes a lot of time to school me on the

  • Leurre Juste host Ben Woo - S2 E6

    13/07/2017 Duração: 34min

      Leurre Juste host Ben Woo joins us again this week and this time the conversation turns back to the many projects Ben has on the go. Ben is very active with the Boy Scouts of Canada, is President of the newly expanded Berkley B1 Series, and somehow finds time to bring us the French fishing show Leurre Juste. We'll start the show chatting about the Berkley B1; from it's humble roots as a single yearly event, we find out that there are now two more B1 stops. Ben and team have brought the B1 into Ontario with stops in Belleville on the Bay of Quinte and another stop We'll talk about all this, plus we'll figure out how a man who doesn't watch hockey and one of the NHL's brightest stars strike up an unlikely friendship thanks to Sail Outdoors and the sport of fishing.

  • Berkley B1 President Ben Woo - S2 E5

    06/07/2017 Duração: 27min

        Berkley B1 President Ben Woo joins us on The One More Cast Show this week. Ben is a household name in the Canadian fishing industry, first gaining notoriety on the Fish'n Canada show in a series of spots hosted by Castrol. He's a man of many talents and many dimensions, leveraging is expertise in marketing and sponsorships to carve his niche in the fishing industry. The timing couldn't be better as the first event in the expanded Berkley B1 Tour in Belleville has just drawn to a close. We'll get into that with Ben in the second half of our chat however. We sit down and learn about Ben's past; how he came into the industry and the unique path he took. The conversation steers toward the educational side of things, as Ben and I share a great deal of advice about making your way in the industry. You won't want to miss advice from someone who knows the industry so well, and has "been there and done that".   Listen on Stitcher: One More Cast on Stitcher Listen on TuneIn Radio: One More Cast on TuneIn Radio Sub

  • World Fishing Network Personality JP DeRose - S2 E4

    29/06/2017 Duração: 38min

        World Fishing Network personality JP DeRose pioneered the first of it's kind show Getting School'd covering the latest products coming out of the industry's premier tradeshow iCast. As he reveals in our conversation, the advent of real-time news through social media channels posed a series problem to the format of such a great show: Everything was old news by the time an episode would air. Enter Beyond The Cast... In this show, JP and team brought us another first in a consumer guide for fishing gear. Like Getting School'd the gear that was tested was also demonstrated on the water in what was a highly educational finale to each episode. You'll want to hear some of the candid "behind the scenes" thoughts JP shares about what his team really found about some of the products they tested and explains how they could create a truly honest consumer guide for fishing gear. No conversation would be complete without discussing JP's current show Breaking Boundaries. A fascinating show, highlighting the nearly infi

  • Breaking Boundaries host JP DeRose - S2 E3

    22/06/2017 Duração: 34min

      Breaking Boundaries host JP DeRose is one of my favorite personalities in the industry. That is due, in large part, to the educational quality of the programs he's created over the years. When I first got back into fishing it was a friend who recommended JP's show Getting School'd; it was a show like no other, focusing not only on industry news but taking those products on to the water to show them in action. We'll get to know JP a little better, focusing on his early years growing up in Toronto, and how his path in the arts and love of fishing intersected. JP shares with us his unique powers of recall from gear specifications to days on the water, which lends to his ability to teach anglers about selecting the right gear for the application. JP is a really hand's on guy and "learn by doing" type, and we discuss how deep into the process he gets with his productions. The conversation turns to how JP made the leap from being a successful tournament angler into a key figure in a fledgling World Fishing Netwo

  • Real Fishing host Bob Izumi - S2 E2

    15/06/2017 Duração: 37min

      Bob Izumi is well known to everyone within the fishing industry in Canada, and is truly a household name amongst those who don't fish. With the longest running show of it's kind, there's no wonder why the man is synonymous with fishing shows here. Add to that an entire family of Izumi's all making their mark on the industry, and you can easily see why I'd be bristling with excitement for the opportunity to speak with someone I've grown up admiring. In the second half of our talk with Bob, he shares some insight into how they roll with the punches when "shoot day" throws a few curveballs. We'll talk some more about the Izumi family and their strong presence in the industry, and we'll try and get Bob to pick some of his favorite fishing adventures out of a lifetime of them. As he is an avid tournament angler, we steer the conversation into the expansion of the Berkley B1 and his thoughts on how the event is evolving. We wrap up the show chatting about some of the charitable work he's done quietly over the ye
