He always produced quality shows.

watched an episode a few weeks ago where he landed his plane to meet a guy to go fishing in the everglades. Told my wife, "that's the life." Cool guy, lived the life I dream of.

Yes, that kit plane was one that he built, assembled himself and flew on a number of shows in the Bahamas. He was a really great stand up fellow and will be missed by all of us of the brotherhood of the fin. He was a person who seemed to be at ease with all his fishing buddies and a person whom any angler would be proud to fish with on any given day. He will be missed!

Sorry to hear about this. His show was one of the best. He seemed to really want to teach his viewers about fishing, not just an info-mercial

great angler, could count on a great show anytime you watched. Got to give kudos to any man who manages to make a living at what he loves.

Godspeed to the family and friends in these times.

Wow RIP Jose and I'm so sad for his family's loss. He had one of the few shows I'd actually watch.

very sad to hear about Jose. You got the sense that he was truly passionate about the fish and really "got" what fishing was all about.

I have a bunch of SF episodes on the dvr ready to watch. \Won't be the same now.

Like I said in the other thread, just a huge loss to the industry. It still doesn't seem real.

Here is an article Jerry McKinnis wrote that sums Jose up real good.

I've been thinking about Jose and having read people's thoughts and testimonies all over the web and in newspapers etc. I have not seen one single word negative about the man or his shows.

In this day and age of trolls and libelous scoundrels run amuck, THAT may be the greatest testimony he could receive.

The community truly loved and respected the man and his work.

Watched his tribute show the other night. It wasnt all that great and ignored a lot of his accomplishments other than the fishing show and guiding. Jose deserves at least and hour special show.

His shows were great and he seemed like such a good man. Sounds to me like he was. He was the first guy that ever made me want to go saltwater fishing more than any other type of fishing. He will be missed.

Reading around the net I've noticed the same thing. Loved his show and now my prayers go out to his family.
