We are have all been affected by cancer in someway, the Fish Nerds decided that since October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we would find a way to support this cause. So we partnered with www.mainetunafishing.com and put together a fundraiser for the month. We are going to have special giveaways and tons of fun things all month long, all aimed at raising money for National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. Money raised goes directly to paying for mammograms and education. https://fundraise.nbcf.org/fundraise?fcid=778891

A proposed product called "The Fish Call" is taking Kickstarter by storm. As of the time of this recording, father and son team Jeff and Jack Danos are 664% funded, with $66,471pledged - and they still have 18 days to go! We caught up with the 16 year-old Jack and asked him some questions our fans had about their new product. What kind of fish does it attract? What is the science behind its development? Jack was great at answering the questions and he was a good sport dealing with the Nerds as we had fun pitching new sound ideas and joking about going to his homeschool prom. We hope this young entrepreneur can turn "The Fish Call" into the next Duck Dynasty (Fish Nerd Fan Jeff Dannaldson suggested Redfish Regime).
In this action packed episode Luke Chamings from Chamo's Lures sits in as co-host. We have a great time talking about fishing and lure making in Australia. We then move on to some serious news where we hear about a sick Aussie Goldfish and the lengths a little girl would go to save her poor poor fish. Finally we have an important discussion on fishing with corn

The Nerds partner up with their old friend Tha Amazing James and learn about his work with East Bay Regional Park District and the Mobile Fish Exhibit. James does a great job standing in as co-host and the Nerds move on to discuss "Odd Baits. Next they take on Snopes who have used the Fish Nerds joke from episode 12 where they discuss the Pacu of Lies. Feel free to hit Snopes on twitter and remind them to site their sources use @snopes and @debunker to contact them, be sure to use #Pacuoflies . Finally the Amazing James gets to participate in the famous fish quiz. This gets a little uncomfortable. Enjoy the Show!
