and Fish will once again be hosting Outdoor Channel's hit series ULTIMATE MATCH FISHING. This season's show was shot on Wilson Lake in Alabama and will start airing in July. And if you've never seen the show, here's a brief description of how it works:
Ultimate Match Fishing pits two professional anglers from the B.A.S.S. and FLW circuits. They compete from the same boat as they battle it out on one of America's premier bass fisheries. Each angler has control of the boat for two of the ninety minute quarters as they try to catch a five fish limit all the while being intensely monitored by a referee for rules violations. The angler with the heaviest weight advances to the next round. Each season twelve anglers start this game of intense strategy and hard knocks as we eliminate them one by one. Talk about on the water craziness, get ready, because at the end of the season, only one man will be left standing!

Fish Fishburne is an entertainer first and foremost. His off-beat escapades on & off the water are indicative of his zeal for the outdoors and a commitment to share that enthusiasm with everyone he meets. Fish has enjoyed a colorful career encompassing an impressive twelve-years as a B.A.S.S. angler, two-time tournament champion and four-time B.A.S.S.Classic participant.
He gained further national celebrity in a seven year run as host of “ESPN’s The BassMasters television series, host of “ESPN Outdoors Radio” and popular emcee and star of TNN’s “Go Fish” television series. With the show’s inventive production style and Fish’s antics compared to those of Jim Carey & Robin Williams, TV Guide Magazine was fast to name “Go Fish” among its top 10 Picks for Kids’ Programming in 1996… no small accomplishment with competing programs offered up by ABC, CBS, HBO, FOX, PBS, Nickelodeon and Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment.
Fish now makes his home in Knoxville, TN with his (two) cats.
