Z-Man: Mark Zona On Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit Of Big Fish


The Z-Man is in the house!

Mark Zona, the guy behind World’s Greatest Fishing Show and now Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show is today’s podcast guest and was an absolute blast to interview.

He’s been fishing in tournaments since he was 9 years old, and like so many of us, thanks fishing for saving his life by keeping him out of bad habits and situations.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The explosion of high school and college fishing (and how his prediction about the future of the sport was wildly incorrect)
  • Crazy stories of what happens when you do a live fishing show
  • How high school and college kids can make a living fishing
  • How one college class changed his life (he almost didn’t go to this class, as he had previously dropped out)
  • Late fall and winter bass tips that go against what many people will tell you to do
