Fishing can be slow. Podcasts about fishing shouldn’t be. That’s why we created Bent, the unapologetic fishing podcast that moves faster than a tournament bass boat but doesn’t take itself near as seriously. Hosts Joe Cermele and Miles Nolte welcome anglers of all backgrounds and interests, from hardcore crappie jiggers to dry-fly purists to offshore tuna addicts. Even if you’re just mildly fish curious, this podcast has something for you: regional fishing reports, tackle tips, trash talk, etymology, weekly news, trivia, even suggestions on how to piss off your fishing guide. Come for the soggy cooler sandwiches; stay for the raccoon-eyes tan lines. Part of The MeatEater Podcast Network.

    Ep. 17: Fillet Knives Out and Guns Blazing

    This week on This Old Bait House, we’ll explain why you need to raid grandpa’s tackle box for bass glory, hang pictures of a quaint old bar that serves questionable chili, open a restaurant that offers guests a dark, cold, cramped dining experience, and piece together a damn good dam report that may result in fewer steelhead getting pureed.

    This week on Fish By Numbers, we throw shade on a man covered in salmon sperm, highlight bass legend Oliver Ngy’s hatred of billfish, calm the panic of foreign seafood consumers, add chunks of color to a miserable striper report, and bathe a terrible Black Friday bargain in soft blue light.

    In this episode of Wild America for wet fly dapplers, we observe a gentle giant establishing dominance over a pack of jetty rats, get lost in an incoherent word forest spewed by the late Paul Maclean, go on an expedition to find a barramundi that pays off mortgage loans, and tell you how to survive with only the stolen goods you can fit in a JanSport backpack.

    This week on our not-so-special Halloween Special, get hip to a bass secret so venomous it might kill you, score a good deal on waders by making them smell like fear, scare the kids with a bedtime story so horrific you’ll never have to spend money on another Boogie Board, and learn the five trout flies worth losing an eye.

Tim Hortons!!

How dare you dis my Timmy’s! Although the common knowledge between locals is that they put nicotine in the coffee to keep you coming back, there’s still nothing better then a cup of that molten lava sitting on the lake as the sun rises waiting for your flight to be called in the local small mouth tournaments.

Lobe the show, keep doin what you do!
