NBC Cuts Out God in Lindner's Angling Edge Show





Yesterday we got this word from Lindner's:
We received notice from NBC Sports regarding the inspirational message Al presents at the close of each program. The following is a quote from NBC Sports (formerly Versus) “Moving forward, NBC Sports Network will no longer allow any non-sports related content, such as religious content in their programs. Any religious references need to be removed entirely. This includes, but not limited to, on show opens or logos, graphics, animations or any references by talent or guests. This change goes into effect immediately.” Therefore, we have no choice but to remove this segment from our Angling Edge series. We have made the required adjustments and Angling Edge will air as scheduled.

I'm a little bit dumbfounded by this decision on NBC's part. Do they expect that Lindner's audience for the show isn't gonna be just a bit unhappy about this? Up until now the LAE show has been what it has been and that apparently has been acceptable to NBC. Now NBC has dictated these changes and it seems that that the Lindner's were contractually obligated to cut out everything. It's a shame!

However, at the end they tell us; The inspirational message will remain part of Fishing Edge airing on numerous networks. Below is a link to the TV air schedule and then they link to the TV Schedule

I Could Use a Break!

Bass Parade Blog is giving out a Core Reel and sweet G. Loomis NRX853C Jig & Worm rod (7′ 1″, med-heavy, extra-fast tip).

Here is what they say:
Back to the question in the title. As much as I love the NRX and Core – and I do love them (*sniff*) – I’m giving them away, only slightly used. Why? I know life is tough for a bunch of folks out there right now, maybe this’ll make someone’s day, month, who knows. Plus I got plenty other rod/reel combos to catch the fishes.

Some of the folks out there who are hurtin’ are bassers, and no doubt they’d appreciate a job or some cash or a miracle more than an expensive rod/reel combo. But that’s all I got.

So: Anyone know someone who can really use a killer combo – and hopefully will really use it/fish with it?

Well in light of my Stroke at Christmas it is certainly something I could use and would use.

If anyone out their wants to send Jay at ( jay@bassparade.com ) a good word for me it would be much appreciated.

Thanks Bass Pundit

Well Rogers clearly sold out "the Belt" for the Discount Double Check. Looks like Rogers should of kept the money as his game winning mojo was gone. Didn't even make the NFC Championship.

Bye Bye Cheese!

Bass Snatchers Meeting Today

Unfortunately I will not be attending not so much do to the stroke, but because of my cold. Oh well!

Anyway the club is going to bring up lakes and I don't have any brilliant suggestions. I hear Bay lake is going up, but that's the only one I've heard of for sure. Should be interesting to hear what they come up with.

Update: Here are the tenative lakes
Bay Lake
Leech Lake
Whitefish
Pokegema
North Long
Alexander

I like the looks of the schedule and hope the lakes stay the same. We also are gonna have a tournament of Hubert. Not sure what that is all about.

Fall Outing Last Year!

Amazing this had not made it up here by now. This is video of me and Cyberfish catching some nice fish on the 2nd day of the Fall Outing. The biggest was 36" and more than enough to put me on top for FallEE WallEE.
