The Tale Behind the Dog
Nice to meet you! I’m Jeff Maggio my old fishing buddy and I " Lamont" grew up in South Florida and we’ve been fishing together for years.
Over the past 20 years, I busted my ass and became the go-to tarpon snook guide in Broward and Dade County. (I currently take over 230 trips per year.) In the meantime, my buddy Lamont took any job he could find in the TV production industry and worked on some of the most-watched shows on TV. Then we figured – why not team up and show the world how “Reel” guys and girls fish?
That’s how Lunkerdog was born.
The project took off, and together Lamont and I have made over 500 fishing videos over the last 8 years. We’ve attracted over 25 million views and we’re currently the #1 online fishing show. (It turns out, reel fishing is reel popular.)
We are not for everyone, but we have a fan base of hardcore viewers that watch the videos and leave comments and remarks on our social media. The two most common requests are "Make more videos!" and "Where can I get a shirt or hat?”
Guess what? We’re making more videos – and we’ve also started a line of shirts, hats and other gear. We urge you to support us by sporting the new Lunkerdog apparel – and wearing it proudly while you Run the Dog.
Support the Dog and Sport the Gear! We’ll see you outside.
