BREAKING NEWS- Coming this March 2013. To kick off the New Year, it has just been released that Fish Fishburne has announced something new! In a recent interview, the long time television personality and pubic speaker said that he was launching an out of the box concept that he's been working on called, "Fishing with Fish!" It appears that the general public will now have the rare opportunity to actually go fishing with him to an undisclosed location, (somewhere in the state of Tennessee) in his fully-rigged JET-BOAT for a day of complete angling anarchy! WHAT???
We caught up with Fish and here's what he had to say:
" I've been hosting events and doing television shows for quite a while and I recently stopped to ponder the question: How can I have the most fun possible while getting to know the people who watch our shows, are obsessed with the sport of bass fishing and support the outdoor industry that we all know and love? The Answer: By taking people fishing in my Jet-Boat to a really cool location and spend the day chasing bass and laughing 'till it hurts. I mean, that's my life, fishing for fun, telling stories, (and occasional lies) and just enjoying the total outdoor angling experience!"
" I can't tell you the number of people that over the years have asked if I would take them on a guide trip and unfortunately I've always been too busy. I've now decided to try and accomodate those people and take them for a radical ride and a great day on the water! I've been fishing bass tournaments for years, from one end of this great country to the other and sure, it's a lot of fun, but when you're fishing for money there's so much pressure and anxiety that goes along with it. It's as if most of the fun just seems to disappear. So...I thought about how much fun I have when I'm just out on the water lettin' it rip, not worried about how many fish I catch or how big they are and that's when the idea came to me.Think about why you started fishing in the first place, hopefully it was to have fun in the sun while trying to catch Mama Big Lips!"
So it actually appears that if you want to go fishing with Fish, all you need to do is click on the tab above the big REDARROW at the top of the page where you'll find more information. You can also contact Fish at: email@example.com book your trip today!
And remember, this is not your typical guide trip.....

Ultimate Match Fishing TV (2013 Update)
So what's up with season 7 of the hit series Ultimate Match Fishing? Your probably wondering where it is? So I'll tell you...It's currently being revamped, meaning that we are in discussions about next season, who should be on the show, where in the country should we shoot, should we keep the same format, all kind of crazy questions that need to be answered. So, all of that said, we'll be updating you as soon as we get it all sorted out. If you've never seen the show, here's a brief description of how it works.
Ultimate Match Fishing pits two professional anglers in one boat and lets them battle it out on some of America's premier bass fisheries. Each angler is in control of the boat for two of the four 90 minute quarters as they try to catch a five fish limit and the angler with the greatest weight advances to the next round. Each season we hand pick twelve men that will have the chance to play this game of intense strategy and hard knocks. Talk about on the water craziness, get ready! Now entering a brand new season, UMF has reset the bar when it comes to pure bass fishing excitement. The top bass anglers in the world from both the BASSMASTER Elite Series and the FLW Tour fight for the $50,000 grand prize and a chance to claim the UMF Title Belt.

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 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.
