Meet The Host

Joe Thomas

Joe Thomas

Joe Thomas. also known as the Bob Ueker of Bass Fishing (download the movie Major League kids), brings a stout resume to Ultimate Match Fishing. After a 25-plus year career on both the Bassmasters and FLW circuits, highlighted by a landmark All-American victory in ’90 that saw Thomas cash one of the first 100K checks in the sport, Thomas has made the ultra-smooth transition to television. Calling play-by-play for Ultimate Match Fishing is just part of his job. He also hosts the critically acclaimed program Stihl’s Reel in the Outdoors on Outdoor Channel. In his spare time, he hosts the legendary hunting series American Archer, also seen on Outdoor Channel. As a matter of fact, Thomas completed the North American 29 last year, which you can see on MyOutdoorTV. It’s a little known fact that Thomas doesn’t sleep. Ever.

Mark Randolph

Mark Randolph

Before there were marshals, officials, observers or concurring co-boaters, there was Mark Randolph. Since 2005 Randolph has brought an overzealous degree of human fallibility to his referee duties on Pelican’s Ultimate Match Fishing. We have no idea where he came from. We have no idea where he goes during the offseason. All we know is that when it’s time to go, he’s there … sometimes late… to do the job he pioneered. It’s a little known fact that Mark Randolph has seven aliases.
