I've seen some YouTube videos after specifically searching for him, but otherwise I don't know a lot about him. I almost 30. Fairly young yet. He seems like a good guy. Seems to me that for the older guys it would be finding out KVD or Scott Martin was in the hospital. Prayers for a speedy recovery.

Bill was a major tournament guy, but his biggest legacy is probably his TV show, which ran more or less continuously for about 5 decades. I watched him as a kid in the 80s growing up. He is one of the the best communicators of fishing information the sport has ever seen.

WhaAaaaaa????? I’m 34 and I grew up watching his show every Saturday morning. And he is on every fishing commercial ever. His show actually still airs, including a salt water edition.

As I said, I'm not 30 yet. Haven't had cable or satellite in years. I stream everything like everyone my age. I learned how to Bass fish watching YouTube videos of guys around my age. Bill Dance is lore to me.

How about Jimmy Houston or Roland Martin, those names ring a bell?

Hey, it's a new era. I understand.

 

I like some of the "New Guard" on youtube, and I dislike others (a situation no different from TV, to be sure)....but they all stand on the shoulders of giants, and Bill Dance is one of the giants.

 

He even published a few books:  BillDanceBooks.thumb.jpg.7af1497215e829b4982fbe6822b9de08.jpgBillDanceSigned.thumb.jpg.76e933566b287754a0aa882b6f96ca6a.jpg

Not even a heart issue can stop Bill Dance......you can only hope to contain him! Great fisherman....great guy....great shows.....one of the first anglers to really take fishing to the next level. God bless you Bill Dance......keep on wetting that line.

Kinda weird that last year he did a commercial of the new Heritage boat where he was having a heart attack. Best of luck to the world's best known fisherman. Hope he makes a complete recovery.

Jimmy Houston is just a legendary name to me, like Bill Dance. I watch Roland regularly on YouTube though because of Scott.

Praying for a quick recovery.  His bloopers have had me laughing so hard, I thought I was going to have a heart attack.

I've been watching Bill Dance since I was a kid. I'm praying for his speedy recovery. Got to meet him twice at BPS. Heck of a nice guy.
