Show Details Host

Host: John Henigin

Fish Talk Radio is about sharing the joys of fishing and the outdoors. Our mission is to motivate people to get off the couch and onto the water. Equally important is the goal of encouraging anglers to become involved and to take the lead in conservation and in creating sustainable fisheries. Fish Talk Radio is for anyone who has ever dreamed of or picked up a rod and headed for the water… and for anyone who likes some fun!

Fish Talk Radio with John Henigin

In 1999, John Henigin thought a local radio show about fishing in Santa Barbara might work. Ten years later, he has been honored four times by The Outdoors Writers Association of California as “Best Outdoor Radio Show of the Year”. Fish Talk Radio has grown to cover about half the population of California on six stations plus Northern Nevada. Fish Talk radio is syndicated nationally on Sports Byline USA. Now takes it to a much larger audience.

John is Ambassador at Large of the VAGABUNDOS DEL MAR, President of Outdoors Writers Association California (, and is on the Boards of the Santa Barbara Carriage & Western Museum and The Lake Cachuma Nature Center.

Living in Santa Barbara and a legal resident of Cabo San Lucas, John keeps a boat in Lake Cachuma and spends a lot of time after big game fish. As operator of “Reel Fun Adventures,” he hosts fishing trips to Alaska, Baja and Costa Rica as a regular part of his job. John also always finds time to sponsor kids’ fishing derbies and to take kids out on his boat at the lake.
