    I met George a few times when I took over the Mako owners tournaments circa 1996, 1997. This was before he had a show of course. His thing then was making videos. George is a Mako "kid", growing up in the "funaments" that Bill Munro made legendary in those circles. Thus, George was able to leverage that relationship into a Mako sponsorship, which translated into a number of fully rigged Mako boats for his efforts.

    George really is a good guy and is as passionate about fishing as anyone I've ever met and equally capable too. He's also very determined business wise and has done well for himself. Making a business out of fishing isn't easy and to be successful you have to play the game right with the sponsors and he's done that. I have to give him a lot of credit for that. Back when I was in the tournament role I had both the aspirations and some chances to do things commercially myself, but couldn't do it because I wouldn't promote something I didn't believe in or actually use. Guys like George, Mark Sosin and others can look past that and have done well because of it.

    Anyway, I have to admit Georges TV persona doesn't come across that well. But again, if you spent some time with him and got to know him "off" camera you'd probably like him. Even if you don't like him, you have to give him some prop's because he's actually living most of our dreams.  :cool:
