He has a vast network of local guides and pros who feed him the very latest fishing news from Falcon to Texoma to Sam Rayburn and everywhere in between.

On the Coast
Bill Olson spends as much time on Texas coastal waters as many guides, and his job is to tell our viewers what's happening this week in saltwater fishing. He stays in touch with all the boat captains, and saves anglers lots of time by revealing where it's too muddy, and where the real "sweet spots" are along the massive Texas bay system. Featured species include speckled trout, redfish, flounder, snapper, kingfish, and even tarpon. Learn more about Bill on the team page.
Gary spends all of his free time on the water somewhere in Oklahoma. Each week, he gives first-hand info on where the fish are biting and how you can catch them. From largemouths at Grand Lake to crappies at Eufaula to hybrid stripers at Waurika, Gary covers it all. He's hooked in with guides and tournament pros all over the Sooner state, so you'll always get the straight up-to-the-minute scoop. Learn more about Gary on the team page.
