Talk Show Personalities
John Henigin - Host
In 1999 John Henigin thought a local radio show about fishing in Santa Barbara might work. Now Fish Talk Radio, nationaly syndicated, has been honored five times by The Outdoors Writers Association as “Best outdoor Radio Show of the Year”
John is the past President of Outdoors Writers Association California (OWAC.org), Ambassador at Large of the VAGABUNDOS DEL MAR and is on the Boards of the Santa Barbara Carriage & Western Museum and of 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.
Unfortunately, John doesn't think that someone bored and/or evil could do anything to bother him if they were ever to get a hold of merely his e-mail address and associated password. Tsk, tsk, tsk...
