Favorite Fish: Peacock Bass
Over the years, Daniel Lindner has fished and filmed extensively all over North and Central America, traveling and occasionally tournament fishing side by side with his father Ron, his uncle Al, and his brothers James and Bill. Dan's love for fishing extends beyond freshwater species to saltwater fishing, where he has added to his achievements, giant permit, amberjack, and a huge broadbill swordfish.
Today, Daniel is putting his expertise into Lindner Media Productions, which specializes in producing educational fishing programs, educational DVDs, national TV commercials, product sales presentations, point of purchase product DVDs shown internationally in sporting goods stores, as well as providing their trademark underwater footage and photography to the sport fishing industry. Al, Ron, James, Daniel and Bill Lindner are the creative forces behind Lindner Media and their wide variety of award-winning productions, and have a long and storied history in the fishing business. As an ace TV and video editor, Daniel Lindner is following in the famed family tradition. Over the past 15 years, Daniel has carved out his own niche in the outdoor media with specialities that include computer graphic illustrations, creative layout, underwater set design, as well as aerial and underwater video photography.
Daniel’s earliest fishing memory, at three years old, is of catching a big bass off the dock at his home in northern Minnesota. Later, while pursuing a degree in mass communications—with an emphasis in broadcast journalism—Daniel spent summers paying his dues at In-Fisherman cleaning boats to wrangling fish for photo shoots, while also logging thousands of In-Fisherman television field tapes and organizing slides and photos for the editorial department. More importantly, Daniel learned the hard way to shoot and edit videos and commercials for television—at age sixteen, he was thrown into this work whenever the crew was short handed.
