Meet the Fish Circus Fishing Team
Five guys from different backgrounds bond together as they travel the country and fish as a sponsored fish team. Instead of letting their differences divide them, they use them to make a stronger and more competitive team. Watch as 2 sets of brothers, 3 from the North and 2 from the South become five brothers. Sometimes seeing eye to eye and sometimes not so much, just like all families. But in this one there's always trust.
Dave Schunke: He's been fishing his entire life. He has taken his craft from fresh water to salt water and then offshore canyon fishing. He spends a large portion of the year on the water all over the East Coast. He has published numerous articles in various fishing magazines, had several TV appearances as well as conducted seminars. He has participated in benefit and chartiable events such as the Make a Wish Foundation. He also fishes over 15 major tournaments per year from Florida to Massachusetts out of a 39 foot center console.
Jerry and Jon Harris: Both brothers served in the United States Navy. Jerry was a submariner and Jon was an air traffic controller. These brothers have fished tournaments for many years. In the last 10 years they have towed their 38' center console boat from Virginia down to Florida and up to Massachusetts fishing for whatever bites. It doesn't matter if it's trolling for Wahoo off Georgia and Florida, jigging for Grouper out of South Carolina, catching Black Fin off the Big Rock, fishing out of home for Yellow Fin, fooling Big Eye off Maryland, chasing Sharks out of New Jersey, or following Stripers from New York to Boston, these brothers will go. They are out for a good story.
Rob and Chris Pami: Brothers who were born and raised in Northern New Jersey. They taught themselves how to fresh water fish growing up. Their experiences ranged from sneaking into reservoirs to being dropped on a remote island by seaplane to fish for a weekend. Their transformation to salt water fishing has been just like everything else they do in life. Steady, methodical, meticulous, and inventive, they are constantly improving the way they fish and boat. On the boat they are Dave's right and left hands.
