Default RIP - Jerry McKinnis: Fishing Hole

Bass fishing icon Jerry McKinnis passed away Sunday morning at 82 years old. McKinnis was a former co-owner of B.A.S.S. and founder of JM Associates. He also hosted a very popular fishing television show called "Fishing Hole" that ran on ESPN for 44 years.

According to Jim Sexton of B.A.S.S., McKinnis had been in the hospital for the past six weeks fighting an infection caused by an injury sustained on a Wyoming fishing trip. Pretty sure he ended each show with ....

“This is to my dad who always had time to take me fishing “
