"Top Hooker" (TV show) is an in-your-face, full-throttle reality competition series on Animal Planet that splits 10 expert fishers into two teams and pits them head to head in a series of insane, never-before-seen fishing challenges. Traveling across California to some of the most remote and most popular fishing holes, competitors struggle through eight hard weeks on the road and 24 off-the-hook challenges — all for just one shot at being crowned "Top Hooker."

Animal Planet throws down the gauntlet with exhilarating dares — from fishing with outlandish tools, catching fish blindfolded, to even netting fish with their mouths! In a nautical game of catch-and-release, who will catch a spot in the next round — and who will be thrown back home?

With grand prizes of $30,000 cash and a brand-new pickup truck, the expert anglers are up for the fight of their lifetimes. While each of the 10 fearless competitors have distinct skills including deep-sea fishing, bowfishing, fly fishing and surfcasting, they'll need to widen their horizons to survive what the series throws their way. Challenges include anglers capturing fish using only their mouths, zipline fishing, catching fish nearly invisible to the naked eye, and literally walking on water while reeling in their catches. Sponsor Bass Pro Shops provides gear for each of the daunting tasks.



The contestants include Attila Agh, Chris Mason, Danny Hallock, Dzifa Glymin, Grampa Greg McNamara, Ian Esterhuizen, Larysa Switlyk, Melanie Housh, Patrick Crawford, and Kevin.

"Top Hooker" is produced by Pilgrim Studios. Craig Piligian, Ralph Wikke and Mitch Rosa are the executive producers for Pilgrim Studios. For Animal Planet, Keith Hoffman is the executive producer, and Sarah Russell and Jodi Tovay are production coordinators. "Top Hooker" was developed by Animal Planet's Charlie Foley and Kurt Tondorf.
