Starting a new thread cause don't wanna be called a highjacker.

I doubt Dance even remembers this, had to be close 35 years ago. He is at Center Hill fishing with Darwin Gard. They are using Strike King spinner baits, trying to catch largemouth. I am fishing with the late Harold Dotson. At that time, we both lived at Cove Hollow.

Back then, Velma had a pretty good little eaterie at the dock so we go in for breakfast. We have 18 nice smallmouth in the live well. Bill and Darwin are sitting at a table having breakfast and we all speak etc.

Finally, Darwin says, "Yall doing any good?" Keep in mind it is only about 9:00. Harold says, "Well we have two limits but we threw everything over three pounds back." I wish I could have taken a picture of the look on Bill's face. I don't think they had a fish.

I reminded Bill of that at an outdoor show one year...many years ago. He pretended not to remember.

Taylor-see if he remembers, now. \:\)

Bill's a nice guy. I got a lot of respect for him.

Super personality and no doubt a great fisherman... but I don't enjoy his show anymore. He only fishes his private, intensively-managed trophy bass lakes in Florida.

Every fish is 5-pounds-plus and I suspect could be caught with a piece of Juicy Fruit stuck on a bream hook. He never fishes where "real" fishermen have to fish anymore.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with Simms. But I still like Bill.

He's done a show or two recently fishing for catfish in tailwaters (your cup of tea), and I caught one show a few Sundays ago where he was on some river catching stripers. Most of his bass fishing is on private waters, but I still like the content - he spends more time on the technique aspects than some of the other shows.

Most of my enthusiasm is for fly fishing, so very few of the fishing shows really hit my key interests, but if I'm going to watch a fishing show I'd just as soon watch Bill Dance as anybody.

He tried to get the exclusive rights to one of our fishing holes several years ago near Chewalla. He's become a true salesman above a fisherman in the past few decades, but I can't hate a man for doing what I can only dream of. There are tv hunters and fisherman who are much worse.
His boy kills some huge deer by the way.

I love this and its true. Bill is a great guy and a great fishermen...the info on his shows gives this. Say what you will, but his mapping is taking straight from Buck Perry's materials...but unlike Buck...he does it on super stocked managed waters...not places where even the state says there are no viable populations of gamefish.

Bill teaches, not showboats. I hear he has a saltwater show coming soon...
