I'm working on a lighthearted newspaper story titled "The Fishing Movie Oscars". This would be about our favorite fishing movies. I'm interested in hearing ideas from this group. What are your nominations for the best (and worst) fishing movies of all time?

The Old Man and the Sea (1958) Spencer Tracy; Best
I've got a trivia book at home that attests that while they were filming the segments of this movie that were shot in Hawaii, a local fisherman actually did wind up in an all-night tug-of-war with, if I recall correctly, a 100+ pound marlin. According to this account, Tracy himself came up and congratulated this guy, and told the crowd something along the lines of "This right here is the REAL old man and the sea!"
