Monday Trivia – With a Twist (August 4, 2014)

Jerry McKinnis, Host of "The Fishin' Hole"

Jerry McKinnis, Host of “The Fishin’ Hole”

A slight change of pace this week with the Monday trivia question. I’ve finished reading Jerry McKinnis’ bass fishing book and will be doing a review on that next week. As many of you know, Jerry is the current boss over at B.A.S.S. He is also probably more recognized as the host of “The Fishin’ Hole,” a long running television fishing show that ended in 2007.  For all the Yamamato’s (or at least $25 worth), we’ll need to test your McKinnis trivia knowledge.

In order to win this week’s contest, be the first to correctly answer the following four questions:

  1. Before pursuing a fishing career, what professional sport was Jerry contemplating?
  2. A chance encounter with which fishing industry legend changed his career path?
  3. For how many years did the Fishin’ Hole run on television, including local and national networks?
  4. Over the years, Jerry had two dogs that appeared in a good many episodes. Name the breed of dog (they were both the same), and the names of his two dogs?

The answers and winner will be announced Thursday. Good Luck!
