For quite a while now I blame my late night owlness @ targeting the 11:30 CHEK station for Gary Coopers NICE FISH
Now its an American broadcast of Night Line............WTF!!!!!!!!
Guess I'll have 2 settle for the weekend day broadcast

For twenty years I have learned & been entertained watching NICE FISH, even if its a re-run
When its off season I always cherish watching NICE FISH brings me back from the past fishing season & makes me look forward to the season to come
Way better than Bob Izumi's bass fishing on the east coast 8)

Well at least you get Nice Fish on cable. We don't where I live. We used to and at a decent hour. Now I have to pay extra to watch it on WFN and even then it's hit and miss depending on the time of year. I am also disappointed that Sportsfishing BC has lost carriers. Now it's only available on Sportsnet Pacific at 7:30 am on Sunsays. Two great local shows and decent hosts compared to Cronzy, Izumi, Labigban, Wray, and the rest of the hosts of Canadian shows. Once again, BC gets screwed.

Awwww.....come on BGM......there is NOTHING like watching Cronzy salmon fishing on the West Coast. :p ;) I think he brings way more to West Coast fishing than Gary or Mark. Bobby, Henry and Italo are right in there with their adaptation of top water crappie action to targetting top water halibut. ::)

choked as well

Its hard to say how well Coopers show was doing for CHEK but my only complaint was that it was on so late. I used to love the old episodes of him fishing in the Straight or Howe sound. Priceless. How could they cancel that show? Shameful. Is it because the rights were bought by WFN? Seems lame. Maybe we should start our own show. I have a small HD camera...anyone think they would make a good host?

I especially like the the episodes where it 'appeared' Gary may have taken a little 'puff' before heading out on the water. Not saying he did, just that it appeared that way...

He was probably so hung over that it appeared that way. I think that Chek couldn't afford to pay for his show as they are in financial trouble.

I watched both segments of the big $100K derby from 2008. anyone know if they filmed "09? Not bad that the same boat picked up both 1st. and 2nd. place in '08!! What was total money won? Were there side bets?

Well I could host , what's the criteria as I do not puff,---lol--- and I can do with out the hang over----We would just have to get the fish to cooperate. Hell we live in the most beautiful ---prov---in Canada, and the best/ greatest fishing----- it all comes down to having a good captain.


(----If you film it they will watch----:>---)We may need some makeup to match coopers cheeks---LMAO---)

I use the old pvr and watch it when I can. Sometimes I sit down and watch 2 or 3 in a row. A lot of crap on WFN but I still think it is worth it. Sure makes me hate bass. On a side note...I just found a couple of my old Gary Cooper VHS tapes that were filmed in 1989.

Stopped watching Gary Cooper after last year, lost all respect for the man, he doesn't practice conservation the way he preaches it. He was up fishing at Winter Harbor at one of the resort lodge's I will not name. He was promoting this lodge and I strongly disagree with what they were doing up there, Anchor chumming all the big Hali's, a crime really, we watched them bring in 3-4 large 100+ LB Hali's every day and many more well over 50. At that rate there will be no breeding stock, or a very short supply of them. Just my 2 cent's

I believe he has replied to correspondance regarding this episode on another forum. Not sure which one but I would think if you have concerns he would welcome an email. The TV programs are edited in ways that sometimes draw into question what actually happens. Those Hali shows draw a lot of heat for sure!

I just couldn't believe that he would promote a business that is basically pillaging a public resource like that. I was totally disgusted, and he had his grandson there with him, taping the show, nice lesson he's teaching him. Haven't watched a single one of his episodes since

His grandson is one he'll of a fisherman. He's a stud on the sturgeon rod.

Coopers shaw

Ha, ha LoL I thought I was the only one who knew what Gary was up to, having a few puffs and being PIE EYED was normal. Even Red Fisher was always saying he wasn't smoking the funny stuff, but that jug sure got passed around alot. If I could make my living sport fishing I'd have a few puffs too, to make it that much better, but I'd keep the bloppers in the show

Yeah its pretty obvious the episodes when he samples some of BC's finest. I wonder if he reads these forums? Gary, if you are reading let's go fishing man, 'cough cough'....it'll be great...
