Top 7 Fishing Podcasts and How to Listen

I’m not someone who can cook up my catch of the day in a silent kitchen.

Some people consider a noiseless environment peaceful, but it feels lonely to me. I appreciate a good playlist and find podcasts to be particularly useful and entertaining. I can honestly say I’ve become a better angler (and chef) just from listening to the advice of more experienced anglers in the comfort of my own home.

Unfortunately, it’s easy to become discouraged when it comes to searching for new podcasts … trust me, I’ve been there. If you happen to pick the wrong one, it can feel like a waste of time and you’ll wish you had stuck to music. Luckily for you, I’ve scrubbed the vast world of fishing podcasts and weeded out the tedious ones. But before I list my top picks, I’ve got to tell you about a top-notch speaker that’s perfect to listen to these podcasts on. A stimulating podcast deserves a quality home to maximize the listening experience and for me, the Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST is that home.

Durable and waterproof, the MEGABLAST is fully equipped to handle whatever situation you find yourself needing some sound in. After I charge it on the POWER UP docking station, it’s ready to rock for a full 16 hours. This speaker frequently accompanies me on boating excursions, fishing expeditions and group camping trips (did I mention its waterproof?!). The MEGABLAST is portable and light for the powerful sound it supplies, but if you plan on trekking long distances on foot, I’d recommend the UE Boom which is a little lighter and small enough to fit in your pocket or a cup holder.


Although the MEGABLAST is part of my travel gear entourage, I find myself using it mainly to listen to podcasts while I cook or take care of household chores. It has a built-in Amazon Alexa so you can boss it around and get your favorite podcast to play, completely hands-free. Voice control on the MEGABLAST is currently supported for Amazon Music, Spotify, Pandora, SiriusXM, Deezer, iHeartRadio and TuneIn – allowing for a plethora of podcast possibilities!

Now that I’ve covered the “how to listen” and proved my reputation as a sound snob, it’s time to cover what podcasts you should be listening to.

My Picks for Top Fishing Podcasts:


1. The Itinerant Angler Podcast | Available on iTunes, ItinerantAngler.com

The Itinerant Angler is one of the longest running fishing podcasts you’ll find, and its longevity is no accident. Since the podcast’s debut in 2006, host Zach Matthews has expanded his audience by hooking his listeners with exclusive interviews and captivating content. He’s interviewed legendary fishing personalities like Lefty Kreh and industry leaders such as Timothy Boyle, the CEO of Columbia Sportswear.

Due to its very NPR-vibe, The Itinerant Angler is often compared to shows like “This American Life”. Matthews strives for his listeners to walk away with a better understanding of the sport as well as an appreciation of the value of real things, and he’s successful in that. What’s real you ask? Pellet fed pig rainbow trout – not real. Busting your behind to become the first pro mako shark fly fisherman, or building a company from scratch after evading the Russians – now that's real!


2. All Eyes on Fishing | Available on Spotify, PodBean, AllEyesonFishing.com

All Eyes on Fishing is dedicated to the friendships that are made from participating in the sport of fishing. Hosts Josh, Brad and Mitch don’t need a script to entertain and inform. Their funny personalities and comradery shine through and allow for genuine and flowing conversation. The three met while tournament fishing when their passion for competitive fishing turned into a common end-goal – to get people off their personal devices and on the water.

Beginners and experienced anglers take to the All Eyes on Fishing podcast for tips and tricks, gear reviews and comedic relief. The podcast’s focus is not limited to one area of fishing but if you’re into walleye or freshwater fishing, there’s sure to be some talk about that!

3. Bass Edge Radio, ‘The Edge’ | Available on iTunes, Google Play, IOS Podcast app, Castbox, Stitcher Radio, Overcast, BassEdge.com

Trying to catch more bass? Then this is the podcast for you! Co-hosts Aaron Martin and Kurt Dove have the industry experience to take your technique to the next level. Martin was co-host of Bass Edge TV, which formerly aired on Outdoor Channel and has continued to share his wisdom and methods with anglers alike through the podcast and BassEdge.com. Dove is a full-time professional Major League Fishing angler and has competed in years of impressive tournaments such as the B.A.S.S Elite Series and the FLW Tour.

Myself and numerous friends turn to this podcast for the latest news in the bass fishing industry and to improve our skillset. In each episode, Martin and Dove speak with a different angler, considered to be an expert in their field. If you want to be the best, I suggest you learn from the best and listen to this podcast.

4. The Revolution with Jim & Trav | Available on Stitcher, iTunes, JimandTrav.com, OutdoorChannel.com; also a radio program that broadcasts on over 500 stations across the country

Unlike the other ‘casts in this roundup, The Revolution focuses on hunting, shooting and other outdoor recreational activities in addition to fishing. The topic varies from week to week but their fishing episodes speak to seasoned anglers, beginners and everyone in between with an emphasis on how-to.

Jim and Trav are some of the liveliest and informative podcast hosts I’ve listened to, bringing their collective 70 years of outdoor experience to the show. The pair will fish anything that bites – catfish, muskie, sturgeon … you name it! You’ll be sure to recognize the names of their many noteworthy guests, such as Skeet Reese, Carter Andrews and Joe Thomas. A regular and crowd favorite on the show is “CatDaddy” – a catfishing guide from Kansas equipped with old-school methods and an affable personality.

5. Fish Nerds | Available on iTunes, FishNerds.com

Fish Nerds is a truly unique podcast that concentrates on a variety of topics from cooking tips to fishing pet peeves. Host Clay Groves says he goes wherever the story takes him! One time, the story took him to the Boston Symphony where a famous opera singer came on stage to explain how fishing influences his music.

Groves considers hosting to be a labor of love. He thoroughly enjoys bringing different types of guests onto his show and hearing what they have to say. This podcast is for anyone who loves fish, the sport of fishing and eating fish. Chances are that if you aren’t into fish at all, you’ll still find the podcast enjoyable.

6. Addicted Fishing | Available on YouTube, PodBean, iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, https://addicted.fishing

With over 200,000 followers and growing every day, Addicted Fishing has continued to inspire, educate and entertain since it first began in 2009. If you’re an angler in the Pacific Northwest or want to know more about fishing in that region, then I recommend this be your go-to podcast. Hosts Marlin, Cameron and Joshua share their angling adventures in the Pacific Northwest as well as other hot fishing spots around the country with listeners.

If you happen to become addicted to Addicted Fishing and you’ve already listened to all of their podcast episodes … not to worry! The “Addicted” hosts also post daily YouTube videos and a live Facebook interactive fishing show every Wednesday at 6:30P PT.

7. Anchored with April Vokey | Available on iTunes, Stitcher, AprilVokey.com

April Vokey is sure to get you excited about your next fly fishing trip, even if you’ve never fly fished a day in your life. Her undeniable passion and knowledge has drawn in listeners since the podcast started in 2014. While Anchored will teach you some fun tricks, I mainly listen in for the exclusive personal stories I know I won’t hear anywhere other than this podcast.

Vokey has an appreciation for the sport’s history and allows her guests to tell their stories while interjecting herself as host just the right amount. Her interview style is cool, suave and collected … attributes that would be difficult to maintain while interviewing outdoor legends like Les Stroud and Cam Hanes. Once you hear one episode, I can guarantee you’ll tune in weekly.
