About the Show


When Indie film director Michael de Avila hooked his passion for story telling onto his love of fishing, he spawned an award-winning reality television show, Lunkerville. Since 2004, host ‘Mike D’ has been casting his line at every day, recreational anglers, traveling to their secret spots, sharing their special techniques and making them the expert stars of the day. In his signature laid-back manner, he reels in the camaraderie, the fun and the fish. There’s never a dull moment on Lunkerville: the show that features real people and real fish stories.
