I'll bet they will convince  guys to capsize just to make the show more "interesting . What would show like this be without a yardsale.

Or a GWS. Maybe they will try out a shark shield. For those who could not find it.

It'd be nice if they could get them to wear PFDs...

That wouldn't look cool for TV..   Plus they can't fake drowning with a PFD..  It has to be dramatic!!!

Im sure this show will be fake as fuck.. But who wants to watch a kayak fisherman sit on a flat calm ass glassy day.. PLENTY on youtube.lol
Yes, but many newbies or young people could be watching the show...so someone should really preach safety and that PFDs are cooler than drowning.

Hey Ben, you should hit up Discovery Ch and let them know about this.  They might put you on the show for season 2.  The Rocket can slay fish OTW, Kimmie and slay them ITW, and you can help them put their PFDs on...

They only show one guy with a PDF on. Atleast someone wants to make it to the end of the season.

I'm still not sure how I feel about it. I'll reserve judgement until after I've watched a few episodes. But my initial impression is...buncha sellout kooks.  :smt005
All I know is that my non-fishing and non-kayaking friends are more excited than me. Everybody keeps telling me about this cool new kayak fishing show on Discovery channel.
I'd much rather watch the NCKA show.

It'd be nice if they could get them to wear PFDs...
On their Facebook group someone asked about why they don't wear PDF's. They were very hostile about even mentioning the subject. Said it made self rescue too difficult and that they couldn't swim fast enough with a PDF on to catch up with a drifting kayak. One calmer head did offer the explanation that when you are running two lines, the line could get caught in your PDF and the fish could drag you off and down.

In the game of biggest fish, if you can't enjoy routinely gettin' your ass handed to you, by great fishermen, then you don't belong in the NCKA.

I'd put down good money on a wager that a bunch more people have died kayaking and fishing because of not wearing a PFD than because they were wearing one.

Every day, all over the world, people swim in open water with only a speedo and an iPod.
just another perspective.

I'll watch it.  I expect it to be heavily dramatized similar to other Discovery Channel shows, but it could be entertaining and I enjoy learning about non-CA kayak fishing endeavors.  I do hope them not wearing PFDs doesn't rub off on folks looking to get into kayak fishing.

That being said, I'm leery of Discovery Channel, especially after I saw what they did to Shark Week.  I was so disgusted with the few minutes of Shark Week I saw this year that I vowed never to watch it again.  With Shark Week, Discovery went the way of the History Channel by replacing what used to be a cool and educational program with piles of bullshit.  Enough with the effin' Megalodon already!  They're all dead!

I'm not interested in shows about long-dead fish either but I am interested in the new show for any breathtaking underwater videos.
