Best Fishing Podcast

Podcasts seem to be everywhere nowadays, and their number is so large that it’s impossible to stay up-to-date with any genre you like. The same thing can be said about fishing podcasts, but thankfully, only a manageable amount rises above the brackish water. 

There are more than enough genuinely high-quality podcasts about fishing that are not just incredibly informative and entertaining to true anglers but also very well made. Their production quality is top-notch, so they are bound to keep you in your seat and glued to your headphones. Many of them bring great guests, from whom you’re bound to learn something new or reaffirm existing knowledge. 

With that in mind, let’s review a couple that are truly at the top of their game and worthy of your free time.

Anchored Podcast

Anchored Outdoors is a podcast hosted by April Vokey, a famous angler with years of experience. Her whole deal is talking with other renowned people from the world of fishing, hunting, homesteading, and foraging and uncovering unique stories no one has heard before. 

The show has been on since December 2014, with well over 210 episodes. New ones come out twice a month, but sometimes, you’ll get only one episode per month, as Vokey runs a whole business around the podcast. Each episode is an hour to one and a half hours long. If you want to get started, we recommend listening to Ep. 216: Enrico Puglisi, Ep. 185: Al Perkinson, and Ep. 206: Emily Rodger’s Incredible Story.

Every episode is several hours long and released in segments due to the length.

Unfortunately, the show ended in April 2022, but it has 88 episodes, each an hour or an hour and a half long. They are worth your time, even if you only want ongoing podcasts.
