I've just finished that first season and I'm not overly surprised, very OTT in pretty much every way. I did enjoy watching them catch the big yellowfin but overall most the people on there seemed liked dicks but whether they were told to act like that i'm not sure and would put captain jon jon on the worlds most annoying people list.

Yeah I agree with Downtown . But I've also realised the modern reality show ironically is no longer reality . We show big surf , and then the kayaks launching so you'll assume they launched through the surf when the really launched in calm water , we show some footage of sharks then some footage of people in the water and hope you conclude they were both in the water at the same time and then we get you all high on drama . Then during the adds when your high on drama and zinging we bomb you with high sugar food adverts . Beautiful .

Ive been spending the morning catching up with some of the shows ive taped .
I have enjoyed it but definitely noticed some of the editing has been suspect .
They do seem to be money focused with their fishing as opposed to us kayak fishing for fun and food .
They also seem to be very territorial which we don't get here .
Ill watch any fishing show even the crappy ones but yeah those guys don't seem overly friendly when out of towners come to fish different waters .

It's all scripted by discovery to make it have a story line mate. I have an open invitation to fish with Robbie anytime I want, and he's a bloody nice guy. I think you will find they were trying to put some controversy into the show to make it more exciting or what have you. they do the same with all the crabbing, Swordfishing and other shows. Seems to be the same with turbo as well.
