Airs at 9:30 am ET
Mark Zona and fellow bass head Rob Newell are ready for a workout. The two are in Rob's home state of Florida hoping to hoist up some giants off a dock… but these aren't your typical dock fish. The prize at the end of this line is a goliath grouper. With the help of Captain Ryan Rowan, Zona and Newell might just haul in a massive catch.

Airs at 10:00 am ET
It's time for Mark Zona's annual escape from the frozen lakes of Michigan to the warmer waters of south Texas. Joined by his spring break amigo, Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Jeff Kriet, Zona will battle the biggest largemouth bass ever hooked on WGFS. An honor currently held by his previously mentioned pal, Jeff Kriet.

2010 Episodes

Mark Zona admits he is not the world's greatest angler — or even the world's greatest host — and that is exactly why ESPN asked him to do the "World's Greatest Fishing Show."

All Mark wants to do is fish — and show everyone he meets, and everyone who watches — why his life has been consumed by fishing. The Z Man knows there is no better way to get people excited about fishing than showing them how fun and exciting fishing can be.

As the name suggests, the show will never take itself too seriously. But Mark will take his fishing seriously ... the show promises to be just as informative as it will be entertaining.

This week Mark Zona gets to play with guns. In a World's Greatest first, Zona travels to a fantastic island in Louisiana to hunt whitetail deer with his good pal Greg Hackney. Of course this is still a fishing show … Z and Hack spend plenty of time on the Mississippi River looking for anything they can throw in some hot oil.

Mark Zona, Kevin VanDam and Captain Bo Johnson all have one thing in common, they are nuts about fishing. Add big toothy barracuda and giant toothy shark to the equation and you have the ingredients for a big ole can of saltwater shenanigans. Also, it's not everyday when you get to watch one of the best anglers on the planet (KVD) catch the biggest fish of his life.

Mark Zona is ready to climb Mt. Awesome with Bassmaster Elite Series Pro Kelly Jordan. The two have timed their trip to Choke Canyon Reservoir perfectly to hit the peak of the spawn. Or have they? As Z and Jordon quickly discover, things are not always as they should be. It's a puzzling Zeason finale on WGFS.
