Facts of Fishing[edit]

At the age of 21, Dave Mercer approached a small yet growing TV station with a new concept in mind. Mercer didn't want to make a season of half hour shows. He wanted to make sixty second short clips giving various fishing techniques. His popularity boomed, which eventually led him to making a 30 minute TV show titled Facts of Fishing THE SHOW.[2]

Bassmaster Classic[edit]

Beginning in 2011, Dave Mercer has been the emcee for the B.A.S.S. Bassmaster Classic, which has been called the "Superbowl" of the angling world. Following his debut at the 2011 Bassmaster Classic, he emceed eight regular-season Bassmaster Elite Series events and hosted the final two postseason events. Dave Mercer signed a two-year deal to extend his role as Bassmaster Classic and Bassmaster Elite Series emcee through 2013.
