    River Monsters

    I just love watching this show. I get to listening to this Jeremy Wade guy and I get mesmerized by his talking. He does such extreme research on the fish hes hunting. Then he pulls in a monster now and then.
    Anyone else like him?

    Fun to watch. Some of those fish are beast. They're as deadly as a big game hunt.

    He has the most relaxing voice. I enjoy watching the show but if it comes on late at night and the wife lets me watch it...I just may fall unconscious...

    I've watched a few episodes here and there, it can be interesting but there were a few that came out a lot like Giraldo's Al Capone's Vault thing. Still, the water is mysterious and I'm always intrigued by the unknown. I've lived most of my life practically right on the banks of the Allegheny River so I've done a good bit of worm drowning in it. I've heard stories from others over the years and even I, have had my line snapped or had to cut it more times than I could count and mind you, we're talkin' no less than 40# test line. I know there are things in that river that are far bigger than anything that's supposed to be in that river. I've had ahold of things that I never found out what they were but definitely knew what they weren't, which means it was nothing common to this river...supposedly.

    According to the Cornplanter tribe that inhabited this area before the oil boom, the river used to be full of sturgeon but the experts claim that they had become extinct over the years. To my knowledge, none have been caught locally in my lifetime but I have a suspicion some of the "one that got away" fish stories attributed to enormous carp, were likely sturgeon. It'd be cool if that guy'd come here and see if there truly are some left. I'm bettin' they're still in there.

    I like the show, however I gave up watching TV for the most part many years ago. Don't get to see the show often anymore. Kind of surprised it is still on, seems like it has been on a long time now.

    He had a couple of seasons, then was off the air for a while. When the series came back on, it was a "best of". I watched a few episodes, but lost interest. It's nice to know he's back.

    Jeremy Wade is such a great host, I have watched these series two years ago and I must say that it is a good documentary.

    TV? T V ??? The first time fishig in Texas, this Yankee lad reeled in an ALLIGATOR GAR, havig no ideaa what this thig was. I was every bit of three feet long from snout to tail, and I dragged it onto the bank and had a hissy-fit, all of my own. Right there!

    Then, I got dow to Chattahoochee, FL and watched a felllow drag out a six-foot cafish frm below the Jim Woodruff Dam, and he said "That's kinda small. I've got some a foot or more loger ad forty pouds heavier from here." OKeh!

    You must be careful what you pretend to be, because in the end, you are what you pretend to be.
    ....................Kurt Vonnegut, in "Mother Night"

    All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. . . . . . . . . . . . .. — Frank Herbert, Chapterhouse: Dune
