Lunkerville is a television series dedicated to bass fishing enthusiasts across the U.S.A. and Canada. The host, Michael de Avila, referred to on the show simply as "Mike D," travels around the country fishing with local experts learning their secrets for fishing in their favorite spots.

The show was created in 2004 by its host and indie film director, Michael de Avila. In contrast to the many other shows in the genre that rely on a host-as-the-expert format, Lunkerville instead highlights everyday, recreational bass fishermen traveling to their own secret spots and sharing their techniques. Lunkerville was voted “Favorite Fishing Show” three years in a row by viewers of The Sportsman Channel and recently was awarded a CINE Golden Eagle.

Lunkerville currently airs on television on the NBC Sports Network, the World Fishing Network and online on the show's official website.
