Long story short, I looked far and wide for a bass fishing podcast that I liked and just couldn't find one with the perfect mix of fishing tips, gear reviews, news, and interesting guests. So I made my own! Since the first episode on September 25, 2019, we have grown this show by being different!

So here are my promises to you, the listener:

At Tackle Talk, I promise you will get tips and advice that MAKES SENSE. We won't talk over your head. We will break down techniques in language you can understand and apply while out on the water.

At Tackle Talk, I promise you will get UNBIASED (yes, truly unbiased) opinions on gear. We talk about ALL brands, unlike most shows that only talk about their sponsors. No matter your experience or budget, we will be a voice you can trust.

At Tackle Talk, I promise you will hear interesting one-on-one conversations with original guests from all over the industry. We talk with professional anglers, tackle companies, content creators and everyone inbetween.

And most importantly: At Tackle Talk, I promise you will get a genuine, sincere, professionally produced fishing show. I come prepared every episode with tips, news, reviews, deals, and content that will make you a better angler!
