Watch Urban Meyer Bonefish in the Bahamas on His 49th Birthday

Ohio State Head Fisherman Urban Meyer

Urban Meyer will cross the nation in search of the big fish recruit to bring to Ohio State. But did you know, Urban is also an avid fisherman as well? You can see Urban (and son Nate, on the left in the header picture) do some bonefishing today at 10:30 AM EST on the Outdoor Channel (330, Time Warner):

With coaching from professional outdoorsman and major college/pro quarterback Pawlawski and local guide Maitland 'Bonefish Dundee' Lowe, failure is not an option, although Meyer's 14-year-old son, Nate, goes to the final gun before tasting victory.

Yes, you read that right: Urban Meyer is even intense while bonefishing in the Bahamas on his 49th birthday. 

HT: Mark.

That's funny right there!

I'm not finished!  Before we let you leave, your commander must cross that field, present himself before this army, put his head between his legs, and kiss his own arse.

Bonefish are among the toughest fish to land.

I really like the time that Urban gets to spend with his family. This brings back memories of how my son and I spent so much time together fishing and hunting. To all of you young dads out there, cherish every moment you can with your kids. You will be building memories that will live in their minds for ever.

His son truly looks like a mini-Urban.

Urban to captain: I'm looking for 4 & 5 star trophy fish no 2 star minnows

We were born to love Ohio State and hate that team up north.

We're gonna need a bigger boat.

“Don’t fear criticism. The stands are full of critics. They play no ball. They fight no fights. They make no mistakes because they attempt nothing. Down on the field are the doers, they make mistakes because they attempt many things.”

Another good reason to like UFM. :)

Bonefish is a great restaurant.

I just realized that of course Urban loves deep sea fishing, it's just like recruiting, always focusing on reeling in another big catch.

This episode was OK, but I'm waiting for next week when Brady Hoke goes cow hunting in  Texas and eats the whole damn thing on the spot.....Now that's reality television.
