Over fishing is a major problem right now and stocks a LOW , to see a program that revels in sea fishing and with poor conservation practices is disgusting !

I generally enjoy The Ultimate Fishing Show and it's conservation centred angling but I have serious reservations at times concerning the cavalier behaviour of the show's host Matt Watson. In one episode another angler is playing a fish on light gear when Matt cuts the line and says something like "No time for small ones mate, we need to move on" So yet another fish left with hooks in it's mouth to struggle and probably tangle up and die! Poor show Matt! More fuel for people opposed to our sport.

Fantastic program! How can anyone say rod fishing has anything to do with extnction with thousands of trawlers & long liners all over the world decimating all species! These guys work for conservation too monitoring fish stocks! I am a big supporter of Sea Shepherd & protecting fish AND a keen fisherman! Get real!

Hey, I can see where you're coming from. But this program was filmed in the Chatham Islands off the coast of New Zealand - where fishing for Great Whites is illegal. They were assisting a research program and took a DNA sample for it. These fish have no nerves in their lips so the catching process is little more than an inconvenience. I actually whole heartedly agree with you, but in this case (in my opinion for what it's worth) this particular program is exemplary in their conservationalist attitude and treatment of fish. I wish more people had the same conscience.

I was disgusted to see in this episode of Ultimate Fishing sport fishing for sharks , although the shark broke free leaving the the hook and line entangled around its body . With many species persecuted to the brink of extinction anything which encourages this barbaric practice is in poor taste . I am disappointed in the program makes and Quest for being so irresponsible advocating others to fish for species which may be on the brink of extinction .
