Noted angler/editor/educator Spence Petros has been quoted as saying, "Joe Bucher is one of the best all 'round anglers in the country." He is certainly no stranger to musky fishing circles, but his prowess with a rod and reel definitely goes way beyond that -- being equally adept fishing for walleyes, bass, and trout. In fact, Bucher currently holds five line class world records with the National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame on just about every species of freshwater fish besides muskies --- smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, brook trout, and northern pike.
His popular fishing TV series, Fishing With Joe Bucher, depicts Joe's overall versatility as a multi-species angler. Each and every week, Bucher can be seen catching whopper walleyes, big bronzebacks, lunker largemouths, and monster muskies. This versatility was built on a solid foundation that has its roots in a full-time guiding career that spanned nearly 25 years.
Bucher's knowledge of fishing techniques has been displayed time and time again in the pages of various fishing publications throughout the 1970s, 80s, and 90s. He was once a regular editor of Fishing Facts Magazine back when it was the true pioneer of all publications. Numerous pioneering articles by Bucher have since appeared in such publications as In Fisherman, Sports Afield, North American Fisherman, Midwest Outdoors, Wisconsin Outdoor Journal and Bassmaster. However, Bucher's biggest acccomplishment as a writer has been the developmentof his own publication, Musky Hunter Magazine, which he started back in the late 1980s. Bucher has also written several books on musky fishing as well as on several other subjects. This includes his latest release, "Crankbait Secrets".
Joe Bucher shares his fishing experience and expertise on Fishing With Joe Bucher, a nationally syndicated television series that is watched by thousands of outdoorsmen across the country. It can be seen on many TV stations on both broadcast and cable, both regionally and nationally.
