Jerry Mckinnis Has Passed away!
« on: November 03, 2019, 04:31:45 PM »

I just happened to come across the news of Jerry Mckinnis passing.
The fishing hole was one of my favorite shows. Always loved him and his dog Norman fishing together :'(

Wow. That's really sad  :crying:

I'm friends with him on Facebook and have been following his posts during the last year as he was having a new house built. I used to enjoy his show, too. He was always so laid back and relaxed.

WOW...what a view!  He loved those daschund dogs, Norm and Archie were on almost every show! 

I like the series he did on his show when he was building a pond on his property.  RIP Jerry....

WOW...what a view!

For sure!

I remember watching him fish from a canoe, catching smallies. Always enjoyed it.

Yes @Curt - RI  the Smallmouth shows from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area were the best, still one of my bucket list trips.
