    David Gaston and The Homeless Fisherman on MERCER-165

    David Gaston and The Homeless Fisherman on MERCER-165

    This week we have another double dose of goodness. First, we are joined by Bassmaster Elite Series pro David Gaston, who recently caught a 831 LB record Tuna. He tells the crazy, jaw-dropping story of the 11-hour fight aboard the 66ft Fat Chick. Then we hook up with The Homeless Fishermen - Marshall Arnwine. Who tells his incredibly inspiring story that just a few years ago, had him eating out of the garbage to today, being a rapidly growing content creator in search of the next world record bass. You don’t wanna miss this episode of the Mercer podcast!

    Patrick Walters "Rookies Get Me Fired Up!" on MERCER-162 (AUDIO VERSION)

    Patrick Walters has almost never struggled since joining the Bassmaster Elite Series. When you read his list of accomplishments, it almost sounds fake for an angler that has not even completed his 6th season - 5 Bassmaster Wins, 5 Classics Fished, 24 Top 10s, 3 Century Belts as well as the Record Biggest Win Margin and the Largest Smallmouth Winning Weight EVER! Hot off his last Elite Series win on Lake Murray, Patrick joins the podcast and talks about 1400 unanswered texts, how the Elite Series rookies affect him, his A.O.Y. chances, his biggest rivals and greatest goals. This and so, so much more on this week’s Mercer Podcast.

    Mark Zona "I Love This Sport So Much" on MERCER-160

    Mark Zona "I Love This Sport So Much" on MERCER-160

    Some call him Z, some call him Z Train, some call him Zona but almost nobody calls him Mark. Friend of the show, Mark Zona returns to the podcast and he lets loose on just about every topic you can think of. Mark Zona, the over-the-top host of Bassmaster LIVE and Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show is being inducted to the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame this September. He is truly one of the biggest names in the sport of pro fishing but none of that came without an incredible amount of work all fuelled by his tremendous love for the sport of professional fishing.
