In this episode of Reelin’ in the Keys, Captain George Clark Jr. joins Captain Bob Beighley on a Permit fishing trip to the beautiful lower keys of Key West, Florida. The Sun in shining and the water is clear, which happen to be the perfect conditions for the day’s endeavour. The waters close to shore in Key west are extremely shallow, but still play host to very big sporting species. The boys begin looking for Permit, but instead find a boiling pool of massive tarpon breaking the surface that prove too tempting to pass up. Eventually the target species make an appearance and with a change of tactics our host soon hooks into a true specimen. Permit always fight hard, but in two feet of water, landing them is no easy task.

Just out from Islamorada in the upper Keys, Ben uses dead bait tactics to hunt down these silver giants so prized by sport fisherman worldwide. Things get a little cramped on the tiny vessel as the pair get stuck into some baby Blacktip Shark and Grouper, but it’s about to get a whole lot worse when George finally hooks into a beast of a Tarpon. However, as any Tarpon fisher knows, landing these beauties is even harder than hooking them…

Captain George Clark Jr. sets sail from his home ground of Key West, Florida in this episode of Reelin’ in the Keys, as he joins Captain Lee Kerbel aboard Boo-ya Charters in search of Tuna, Grouper and Sailfish. After the Sharks prove too smart to land a fish in one piece, Lee breaks out a sneaky trick that most anglers would consider ridiculous…kite fishing! By sending out a kite into the air behind the boat, a live bait can be suspended in one place at a massive distance down tide. After great success with smaller species like Red Grouper and Blackfin Tuna using this method, George spots an opportunity for undeniably the ultimate prize in sport fishing, the Florida Sailfish.

In this episode of Reelin’ in the Keys, Captain George Clark Jr. joins Captain Scotty Feltman aboard the Floridian charter boat, searching for all kinds of species in the sport fishing capital of the world. Juts offshore from Islamorada, the Sailfish have been pushing schools of bait fish to the surface, where aggressive predators have come on the feed. After casting nets for live baits, George and Scotty replicate this phenomenon with a technique known as the umbrella method, which quickly brings Snapper, Runner and Barracuda to the boat. A common occurrence on Reelin’ in the Keys, George soon loses his fish to the local Sharks, but ultimately manages to land a prize Dorado to cap off this incredible day on the water.

video
Captain George Clark Jr. returns to the show this week to fish for big sport species with Captain Stan Miles from End Of The Line Charters, in another episode of Reelin’ in the Keys. The chosen method for fish of this size is fish with small live pilchards alongside the boat. Such methods may be effective in Florida, but they’re risky in these Shark infested waters and George is first to lose his prize to a monster of the deep. Nevertheless, with a little perseverance, the crew manage to bring Tuna, Dorado and Snapper to the boat, making for a hell of a day on the water.

video
Captain George Clark Jr returns for another series of Reelin' in the Keys, kicking off an incredible season of fishing with a Cubera Snapper night-time session with Captain Kevin Jefferies. The waters around George’s home ground of Key Largo, Florida are one of the best places in the world to catch these beasts, often reaching in excess of 80 pounds. Such a beast requires a bait to match, so the crew are fishing with fully grown live lobsters! Such an expensive hook bait is a big risk, but as our captain soon finds out, it’s well worth the reward. Just a glimpse of things to come!
video
Wild On The Fly takes fly fishing to the extreme in this episode, as the crew head for Guatemala in pursuit of big Pacific Sailfish on the fly. The Guatemalan coastline would be at home on any postcard, but it’s underrated in its fishing opportunities. Steve Jensen and Rich Jorgensen are the lucky anglers tasked with catching one of these beasts, as they head out on the Gypsy charter boat for a crash course in sail fishing.

Randy is joined by fisher friends Chris and Kim to enjoy the sunny Gulf of Mexico that surrounds Progreso in the Yucatan region. Usually a hotbed for big sporting predators like Snook and Tarpon, the Progreso Harbour has been illegally netted on this morning, so Randy and the crew have to be a little more cunning to find the fish that usually hang out deep under the docks. Casting lures between the boats, Kim quickly puts her renowned luck to good use, landing the first Snook of the day, while Chris hooks a very surprising Speckled Sea Trout. After venturing out to the backwater lagoon, the group head back for some classic Mexican Snook Ceviche.
video
Host Mark Melynk is in for a real treat in this episode of The New Fly Fisher, as he takes an ultimate fishing holiday to fly fish for Bonefish, Permit and the mighty Tarpon on the saltwater flats of Belize. It would be hard to argue that these aren’t the most desirable species in the world to catch on a fly rod, not just because of their picturesque habitat, but because they are all knowns as the hardest of fighters. Hook any of these species in the glassy clear water barely a foot deep and you’ll have a true scrap on your hands. Barely stepping out the front door of Tarpon Caye Lodge, Mark and friend Tom Rosenbauer are immediately greeted with a bubbling school of Bonefish.

Paul is back in Key West, an area of Florida that has more ship wrecks per square mile than any other and these wrecks provide shelter for thousands of small bait fish, which in turn attract the larger sporting predators. He heads out with light-tackle, wreck-fishing specialist Captain Mike Weinhofer who has a number of favourite marks to share with Paul. They explore these hot spots, encountering a variety of rod bending beauties such as Grouper, Cobia, snapper, Shark and the ever present Giant Barracuda.

video
In the company of Richard Stanczyk from Bud ‘n’ Mary’s Marina, Paul hits the Florida Keys for some sea fishing, primarily in search of Permit. These much sought after, hard fighting fish are normally found inshore in shallower waters, but will head out to the open sea in time for spawning. They are on board the 'How 'Bout It?' skippered by Captain Charlie Skobel, who is going to be taking them to some of the wreck marques along the coast. Other species they are likely to encounter are Baracudas, Rainbow Runners, Ceros and Black Groupers.

Paul is in Florida with Captain Bill Keogh who has pioneered kayak fishing in the Florida keys over the last twenty years, and is the author of books such as The Florida Keys Paddling Guide. Though Paul has never previously kayaked, he promptly picks up the knack and lands himself a Lemon Shark, up close and personal. After that, it’s all aboard the "Gulf Lady" for a half day's bottom fishing on the reef just off Islamorada, known as the North Hole, to complete this latest Florida adventure.
video
It’s an early start for Paul as he makes a dawn rendezvous with Florida fishing expert, George Wood. Before the sun gets too high in the afternoon, the team (including Richard Stanczyk) get some interest from the barracuda population. Returning later that evening, though, they head out to the area of the Keys known as ‘Channel Two’, and finally contact some Tarpon, although the powerful and wily fish ensure the subsequent battles border on the epic.
video
Captain Scott Stanczyk skippers the ‘Catch 22’ out of Islamorada in the Florida Keys. He takes Paul out for the day to seek out the many varieties of fish in the ocean waters off the Florida Keys.

The Big Fish
51:50 
The Big Fish takes us to the Million Dollar Month international fishing tournament in the Cayman Islands where 100 boats with 300 anglers competed for huge cash prizes. The event was founded in 1984 and ran til 1997 and this is a fascinating snapshot of one of the premier money tournaments for big game fishing. On the morning of the first of 30 days fishing, the boats congregate offshore at Georgetown, waiting for the start before heading off to their chosen spots. On the first day, plenty of Wahoo, Dorado and a couple of White Marlin are also caught. On day 2, we join the Hooker's team who make an early start, and get Eugene into a strong fight with a 200lb Marlin which was safely released. At the weigh in that day plenty of other species have been caught, including a 73lb Tuna for a local angler. The competition continues in earnest but will anyone claim the $1m prize? Please note - this film was filmed in the 1980's when attitudes to the catch and release of Marlin were a little different to today.
video
Returning to the Florida Keys, Paul teams up with Skip Neilson this time to try the warm, shallow waters for the ocean’s most famous predator, the Shark. So teeming with life are the Keys, however, that the catches aren’t limited to Shark and Paul hooks a variety of other shallow water species including Speckled Sea Trout, Jack Crevalle and Snook. That’s not to say the sharks aren’t plentiful though too, and Paul completes what Skip refers to as ‘The Shark Slam’.
video
Paul is spending three days trolling and fly fishing for Tuna, Sailfish and a few more species off the islands of the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. He is joined by fellow scots, Duncan McKenzie and David Campbell, both very experienced saltwater anglers. Together with skipper Ian Roberts and first mate, Nicky Elliot, they’ll help Paul in his offshore adventures.
video
Paul heads off to the coral atoll of St. Joseph, one of over a hundred islands sprinkled over 400,000 square kilometers of the Indian Ocean, that make up the Seychelles. This sport fisher's paradise is a world famous spot to catch world class Bonefish on the fly. These ghosts of the flats have to be stalked. They're very elusive and quick, but because St. Josephs' is completely uninhabited, the Bonefish are numerous and Paul has the expert guidance of Peter Petzer.
video
Paul is on the west coast of Ireland at Newport on Clew Bay in County Mayo. He's putting himself in the capable hands of local expert Norman Dunlop who is taking him out boat fishing for a variety of species, including Thornback Ray, Dogfish, Bullhuss, Pollack and Coalfish. They are joining the only lady skipper in the country, Mary Gavin Hughes onboard Shamrock 1, she was born and bred on Clynish, one of the 365 islands that surround the bay, so knows every nook and cranny in the area. Paul starts with a mackerel strip bait, down on the bottom and is soon into a double hook up of a Pollack and a Coalfish, whilst Norman catches a "pan-sized" Dab on ragworm. On day two Paul heads out again with Mary and after stopping off to catch some fresh Mackerel for bait, Mary finds a marque famous for its giant Skate. But Skate can be notoriously slow to bite, so whilst they are waiting Paul shows Mary (and us) a video of a night time Tarpon fishing trip he did whilst in Florida the previous spring.
video
Paul is in Bessaker in Norway. Klass-Jan Jonkman takes him out sea fishing for a whole variety of fish including Cod and Pollock. Fishing at depths of between fifteen and two hundred metres, Paul very rarely pulls his line out with nothing on it. More often than not, both he and Klass-Jan pull out three varieties of fish on one line including a few Rosefish or Atlantic Redfish. If you've got three cod on your line that's a big weight to pull up two hundred metres, as Paul soon finds out. The sport is fast and furious and Paul ends his trip with a monster cod.
video
Paul returns to the Louisiana Wetlands and meets up with local guide Capt Phil Robichaux to explre the myriad of channels and waterways in the area. They start by throwing a chartreuse coloured soft plastic lure with a jig head and in no time at all Paul has a small Speckled Sea Trout safely landed. The sport continues in earnest and the fish get gradually bigger. Its all going well until they move to a creek and Paul hooks into a small Alligator which is expertly landed by Phil! Next up Paul finds a small Redfish, the first of the trip. The following morning, Capt Phil takes them to a new sport looking for a bigger Redfish but first up for Paul is the Redfish' cousin, the Black Drum. Moving into another shallow channel, Paul finally gets into the Redfish he's been looking for and he finds out why these fish are so popular.
video
Paul explores the angling potential of inshore fishing in Mazatlan in Mexico and begins by trolling for Red and Black Snapper along the rocky breakwater of the El Cid estuary, where a double figure Red Snapper jumps on the bait and tries to head back to the rocky cover. While heading a little further offshore to fish for Dorado, Paul comes across a vast pod of dolphins jumping and rolling alongside his small boat and they provide us with a spectacular water show! In part 2 it’s a world first as Paul sets off to try and catch huge hard-fighting Sailfish, but fishing for them without any hooks! Using only string in place of the hook Paul lands 2 fabulous 80lbs plus Sailfish.

But legend or no, Paul soon hooks into a whole array of species and in flatfish bay is transported back to boyhood as he catches dabs and Flounders!
video
From the Canadian city of Victoria, the capital of Vancouver Island, Paul joins skipper Wayne Dealey to fish the rich northern pacific waters. Paul’s target species is Halibut (known locally as butts), giant flat fish that can strain the toughest of tackle and anglers often go weak at the knees with the sheer power of these overgrown Flounders. But surprise, surprise, the first catch of the day turns out to be a very unusual species a Ratfish which, as its name suggests, looks very much like a rodent. After 6 hours of quiet inactivity the action erupts as a halibut tears off with Paul’s herring bait and the fight is on and he lands a specimen Halibut of over 60 lbs. In part 2 Paul meets up with fishing guide Kensey Cuthbert to fish the tidal estuary of the River Renfrew in pursuit of Silver Salmon. Several Salmon are successfully hooked but the estuary seals are not slow in taking advantage of handicapped salmon and to Paul’s utter disbelief they make off with his fish before it can be landed. Finally Paul gets one to the boat, a beautiful silver that is steered rapidly but safely into the landing net!
video
From the heart of swinging New Orleans Paul heads for Cyprus Grove Marina, to join Richard Hussar to fish the Gulf of Mexico for a spot of rig fishing, although rig fishing is not quite what Paul expects with the entire fishing area surrounded by oil and gas drilling rigs. But there’s plenty of good fish to be caught around these rigs, which are known locally by anglers as ‘FADS’ or ‘fish attracting devices’ and they attract big numbers of fish like Snapper, Groupers, Specks and Amberjack. Drop the line down and it’s like a lucky dip as to what species the fish will be! Next day, they join experienced skipper, Frank Lawson and set off to the Gulf’s big game hunting grounds to try for the ton up, back breaking, hard fighting, Yellowfin Tuna.
video
Paul’s off fishing the wetlands surrounding the mighty Mississippi River, in search of Speckled Trout and Redfish.

Paul is in Northern Ireland on the beautiful Lower River Bann that drains the mighty Loch Neagh. It's full of large Bream, Roach, Pike, Perch, Eels and Trout and to see which of these he can catch he joins Francis Duffy, a local coarse angling expert. They start off with a couple of decent Roach and after a heavy shower, Paul catches his first ever Bream, at around 4lbs. Out in Francis' rowing boat Paul adds a hard fighting pike to his collection. Next up is a spot of sea fishing as he joins a party on board the Missy Moo out of Larne, skippered by Tommy Martin. Wrasse, Ling, Mackerel and pollack are on the menu. Back on the Lower River Bann, Paul joins the well know guide John Todd for a morning's Salmon fishing. They're on the famous Carnroe beat, where the salmon heading towards Loch Neagh are held up by a huge weir. Paul makes the most of this golden opportunity and hooks a lovely fish on his Scottish Ally Shrimp fly. John tells Paul that there aren't many Sea Trout to be found in the Bann but Loch Neagh is home to its very own Dollaghan Trout, a fish that migrates down up and down the feeder streams to the loch. The invitation to fish for one proves a great way to end the show.

Paul's exploring the incredible fishing opportunities offered by Florida, the Sunshine State, on America's east coast. First up he's in the Lakeland district of Polk County, where he puts himself in the expert hands of local guide Dave Hoy for a spot of Bass fishing. Dave recommends they cast soft plastic worm lures, and it's not long before Paul is into some decent Largemouth Bass. From here he travels down to the island of Captiva on Florida's Gulf Coast, where in the shallow waters he goes fly fishing for Sea Trout on board with skipper Mike Fury, any trout between 14 & 24 inches can be taken home for dinner. At Robbie's Marina on Islamorada, in the Keys he sits and watches a shoal of Tarpon being hand fed a free meal before heading out into the deeper blue waters for some big game fishing, on board Catch 22 skippered by Capt. Scott Stanczyk. First job of the day is to net some bait fish, but as this attracts the circling Barracuda, it seems silly not to try and hook one of these dangerous predators. Paul certainly knows when one has taken his bait. Next a fast and furious session, as they hit a shoal of Dorado but Paul's hardest fight of the day is when he hooks a 50lb Sailfish on 15lb tackle.
video
Paul's off in search of monsters and on Loch Ness he meets up with local salmon angling expert Ala McGruer, who explains and illustrates the wide variety of tackle and techniques used for successful salmon fishing on Scotland's most famous loch.

Approximately 18 miles to the north of Dunnet Head in Caithness, across the Pentland Firth, sits the fertile chain of islands collectively known as Orkney. For the angler, the islands are home to a great variety of trout lochs, the largest of which is Loch Harry, not far from Kirkwall. Paul joins local angling experts Stan Headly and Billy Sinclair in search of Orkney Brownies. The rugged coastline around the islands offers great scope for sea angling, as seen when Paul fishes Hoxa Head for big pollack and coal fish.

Fishing amidst the beautiful Torridon Mountains of Wester Ross is almost reward enough for being in this part of Scotland. Although the fishing nowadays is only a shadow of what it once was, perseverance and adapting your tackle to meet conditions can still bring results, especially in the late summer when water levels are a wee bit higher. As in Harris the deep water close inshore can provide some excellent sport from both shore and boats.

Paul returns to the Isle of Mull and meets up with Duncan and Brian Swinbanks who have recently started a lure manufacturing business to keep them busy during Winter. He then heads out with Brian on to Loch Frisa, trolling some of these new lures for large Brown Trout, which are a feature of this water. Its April and with fishing lying deep, this is a great way to find them and Paul does just that landing a sizable Brown Trout. Fly fishing for Trout and Salmon gets underway properly during Summer but it's the sheer variety of sea angling that makes Mull such a great destination. Duncan and Brian invite Paul out for day's boat fishing with the challenge of seeing just how many different species they can catch in a day.

Paul's in the Florida Keys and today fishing in the back country where multiple species can be found including Tarpon, Redfish, Snook, Sea Trout and today's target the Bonefish. Richard Stanwick joins Paul along with Capt George Woods and he explains how they'll be catching them today using bait in slightly coloured water to find the fish. They 'stake' the boat up and before long Paul picks up the rod as line starts peeling off the reel with a running fish. Its a nice Bonefish of around 5lb and a great start to the day. They move to another spot and almost immediately another big Bonefish tears off into the distance and Paul enjoys a strong fight. You never know what you'll catch in such rich waters and next up Paul catches a small Stingray before they focus back in on the bones. In the afternoon, they move into shallow water, poling the skiff and looking for tailing bones that they'll then present a bait in front of. They find a good fish and spend several minutes stalking it as it tails around the bait, before Paul makes a perfect cast and hooks into strong fish. Paul caps this brilliant trip by hooking and boating a nice Bull Shark.
video
Paul is in Marathon, the largest of the Florida Keys and meets up with legendary skipper Donnie Braswell who plans to put Paul on some Tarpon. They set off early to Seven Mile Bridge, which Donnie is sure will hold some big fish. Paul be using live Mullet as bait and Donnie gives Paul plenty of advice before he starts, especially as there are lots of obstacles around with the bridge pylons. There's plenty of fish about, rolling between the bridges, and a couple take Paul's bait but hooking them is tricky and so they decide to move a little. The move pays dividends and Paul hooks into a nice fish and enjoys a strong battle before the Tarpon throws the hook near the end. The next fish is an altogether different proposition which Donnie estimates at 125lb and has to get on the engine quickly to chase it down. A long spectacular fight ensues before the Silver King makes one huge jump near the boat and breaks Paul's leader. As evening comes around, Paul gets into another one but can he land this one?
video
Paul is in Northern Ireland in this episode and meets up with Alan Hanna who is to introduce Paul to the world of fly fishing for Pike. After Alan has shown Paul his set up and the type of flies they'll be using, they head out on Lough Erne in County Fermanagh. Drifting along the bank and stripping back the large lures pays dividends for Paul as he lands a sprightly Pike on the fly. The action is short lived though so they decide to try a different lake the following day and try a small lake that Allan knows on the Blessingbourne Estate. Having found an area here Pike are holding, Alan shows exactly how its done, landing several Pike in quick succession. In the second part of the show, Alan has Paul scaling down a rock face on St Johns Point in County Donegal, in order to access a cracking sea fishing mark where they hope to tempt some Pollak on the fly. Again Alan talks through the set up and flies before they both start casting into the choppy water. Alan gets into a fish and not long after Paul breaks his duck and lands a Pollack too. The day isn't done yet though as Alan lands a couple of bigger Pollack that put up a strong fight.

Paul is in Cabo San Lucas on the western coast of Mexico, and has been invited on an exploratory fly fishing trip with around 20 other anglers to Clipperton Island, a remote atoll 1000 miles to the South West. Its a long 3 day trip by boat so the skipper decides to break it up by stopping at the Revillagigedo Islands for to try for some of the numerous games species that live here. As they find the baitfish, the Yellowfin Tuna suddenly show up and the action begins in earnest with several anglers hooking up, including Paul, who has a strong fight with his first ever Wahoo. They continue on to Clipperton arriving in darkness at 5am, but it isn't long before the anglers are into fish again, catching some sizeable Yellowfin Tuna. Another angler on the boat, Steve Abel has an amazing start to his trip by catching a world record Rainbow Runner. Paul then gets a nice Rainbow Runner, which would have been a world record itself if not for Steve's fish, before he hooks up to a powerful Tuna which forces him to leave the mother ship on a skiff to chase it. The fight is in vain though as the fish slips the hook so next up Paul heads off in another skiff trolling teasers behind the boat before covering any interested fish with the fly rod. After catching a small Blackfin Tuna, they head to the reef catching a variety of fish on Popper fly patterns. The following day, Paul goes ashore and sight fishes some lovely Bluefin Trevally ending this amazing adventure in some style.

Paul is back in Alaska, in a town called Seward in the south of the Kenai Peninsula and this time he's heading out to sea in search of Halibut which can grow to huge sizes here. Skipper, Gabe Mercer takes the boat out to the South West entrance of Prince William Sound and talks Paul through the methods he'll be trying. One rod is set up with a large jig, whilst the other is set up to fish with a bait of Salmon bellies. Paul drops his jig down to the bottom and starts moving the rod up and down and it's not long before he gets a hit and sets the hook. Its not a huge one, in fact the skipper calls it a 'chicken halibut' but certainly gives Paul a brisk workout. Not long after, Paul gets another hit and this time its a beautiful Ling Cod that comes to the boat after a strong fight. Switching to bait, and moving to Montague Strait Paul gets what he came for, hooking into one of the big Halibut the area is famed for but can Paul land one of these monsters?
video
Paul is in Islamorada on the Florida Keys, the sport fishing capital of the world and is meeting up with Capt Rick Stanczyk. As he explains, Islamorada lies in the middle of the Keys sandwiched between the Gulf of Mexico, Florida Bay and the Atlantic Ocean making it a haven for numerous inshore and offshore species. They're fishing offshore so the first stop is to collect some live bait with a cast net. With a live well full of Pilchard, they move offshore, and start by looking for signs of fish, pulling teasers near where some birds are working. Its not long before the Dorado show some interest and Paul enjoys some great sport on his fly rod with some smallish ones. The skipper spots a bigger fish so they switch rods and Paul hooks up with a sizeable Dorado which gives him fantastic fight. Continuing to troll, Paul picks up a small but feisty Blackfin Tuna before they hit into a pack of big Dorado and its all hands on deck as every rod on boat the bends over and some spectacular saltwater action ensues.

In this episode, we learn about a tagging project which was set up to help protect the Dhufish which are unique to Western Australian waters. A prized sport fish, Dhufish have unfortunately been in decline for several years, so the more information the scientists can get about them the better. Simon joins up with local Two Rocks skipper, Paul Greenwood and his son, Jess who have been big supporters of the project and regularly catching and tagging Dhufish with over 300 to their boat. Having arrived at the first mark, the baits are dropped down and the rods are soon bent over. Several Dhufish are caught in quick succession with each then measured, recorded and tagged before release. Paul the skipper shows us how he uses a release weight, to safely release the fish back to the bottom attached to a barbless hook which is then teased out. We also learn how to prepare perfect squid baits for Dhufish fishing whilst Paul shows us the kind of bottom structure that Dhufish reside in. At the final mark, the gys find more Dhufish plus some Snapper and a surprise St George Whiting to round off the trip.

Nick has invited one of his viewers on the show this week, and local angler Shannon Edwards takes them to a spot called Two Rocks where they start fishing in 15-20m of water for Snapper. Shannon throws in some small pieces of burly to get the fish active and they drop their baits out of the back along the burly trail. Shannon hooks up first and has a tough fight with a Jewfish which is a great start to the day. Nick then hooks and the first Snapper, no monster but most welcome. More Jewfish and Snapper follow for both anglers and Nick shows us how to rig his baits. On their second trip out with Shannon, he takes them to another reef to try some lure fishing, but the swell is too strong to get over the back of the reef. Thinking there will be Snapper below the breakers they start throwing soft plastics out and in no time at all Nick fights and lands his PB Snapper. Its pretty gnarly fishing but the guys are convinced there ae more fish in this rough water, so persist and Nick catches another big Snapper. On the way back, they do some trolling and Mark hooks and lands a big Shark Mackerel to cap a great day's fishing in Perth's waters.

Western Australia isn't the first place you'd think of for Trout, but in the South West of WA, is Waroona Dam, which is stocked with both Brown and Rainbow Trout providing an interesting change from the saltwater fishing. Nick starts by trolling along a tree lined bank and soon gets into a couple of small yearling Rainbow Trout. Moving up to the dam area he then finds a good sized Rainbow on a Rapala lure which looks very similar to a small trout. After taking a break to show us the various lures he favours for these trout he continues fishing. Trolling around 3.5kph seems to bring consistent results throughout the day, despite the bright weather. The following day, Nick makes an early start and is soon into the fish again rounding off the trip with a succession of hard fighting Rainbows.

In this episode the guys are fishing on the Swan River which flows through the middle of Perth, and testing bait vs lure to find the most effective tactic. Finding a nice snag on the bank they begin to pick up a few small Grunter and Black Bream but decide to move into some deeper areas to find something bigger. This tactic pays off as they start catching some much bigger Bream using Mullet and Prawn for bait. Nick then bags his personal best Black Bream measured at 39cm so its a great start to the day. Next we join Ruan Van der Berg who is up river at first light and demonstrating how he fishes lures around a snag. He grabs a quick Bream before noticing some Cormorants in a tree on the far bank. Its a great indicator that there are fish around and casting under the tree that they are roosting in, provides instant results with another Bream coming to the boat. Back in the city and Nick finds fish in the harbour area by targetting the walls and other structure with small lures. Next he fishes under a new bridge targetting the pylons and immediately finding more Bream. Back to Ruan and he shows us how to fish creature baits which the Bream round here just love.

Late Spring and early Summer are prime jigging times in Perth and especially for the mighty Samsonfish which present a formidable challenge due to their size and power. After arriving at their chosen spot, the skipper, Mark, points out a group of fish lying near the bottom on his amazing 3D Sonar display. Nick then shows us the Albright Knot which he favours to connect braid to mono before dropping his 300g jig 112m down to the bottom. Almost instantly, Nick has a fish on and a back breaking fight ensues with one of the toughest fish you can find. Its a chunky 20kg and is quickly released as there are more down there and almost certainly much bigger ones. Mark joins in too and in less than a few seconds, its a double hook up and the mayhem begins with both anglers trying to keep their fish from entangling each other. Nick gets his fish in and its a 25kg specimen, but Mark is still fighting his and its obviously bigger. Finally getting it in, Nick is flabbergasted to see the biggest Samsonfish he's ever seen which they estimate at over 50kg. More monstrous fish follow and you can be certain Nick and Mark will sleep well tonight.

The action dries up although Randy does see a nice inlet that he's never seen before which he earmarks for a future episode before Randy decides to call it a day. Next up they move to Dzilam de Bravo, another of Randy's favourite Yucatan locations and head into the backwaters. But with no success and a low tide around, they decide to concentrate on a main channel first and Randy finds plenty of willing Barracuda. As the tide rises, they head back into the backwaters and Randy finds a Barracuda in a narrow channel. Randy reflects on tough year due to the pandemic but is hopeful for better things in 2021.
video
Randy is heading down the coast, around 30 mins from Chuburna harbour, to an area of mangroves called Las Carbonadas on the Yucatan Penninsula. On arrival they start by trolling in a wide channel and pick up a small Barracuda and a Jack. Randy decides to try and visit a natural spring deep in the mangroves but has to turn back as the channel becomes impassable by boat with the spring too far to reach by foot. He returns in a smaller boat a week later and heads upstream to the natural spring revealing a beautiful part of the mangrove habitat that most humans never venture too. Noticing a few Mangrove Snapper on the way out, Randy pops on a shrimp to try and bag himself some lunch.

Henry is in the Bahamas doing a spot of reef fishing for species like Grouper and Snapper. You never know what you're going to get on the reef, and Henry starts off with a beautiful Mutton Snapper. In Fish Eye, we take a longer look at the Snapper and its family of fish and why they are such a sought after fish both for their sporting and culinary characteristics. Oliver then hooks up, just managing to get the fish off the reef before landing a nice Rock Grouper, perfect table size. Next up, we're in Mosquito Lagoon and Henry is going after Black Drum in the skinny water here. Spotting a big school pushing water, Henry covers them and hooks up with a nice fish which puts up a nice fight. Later, Henry jumps into a Kayak and finds another school and again gets into a nice battle with a Black Drum. Finally we're in Sarasota Bay with Henry and Billy Clyde, wading the flats and picking up some nice fish.
video
Henry joins Oliver Rogers in Stuart on the east coast of Florida and they are targetting Jack Crevalle which like to hide around docks and other structure. They're using Whitebait under a float and Oliver's is the first float to tear away and he's into a nice fish. These fish fight hard and stout tackle is needed to subdue them and in Fish Eye, we take a look at Jacks and some of the characteristics that make them such a great sport fish. They move to Hooker Cove and Oliver seems some activity around his Mullet bait before the line rips off again. In the second half of the show, Henry is back in Mexico at the Grand Slam Fishing Lodge and targeting Bonefish along the shoreline with his fly rod. Its a small one to start but even a 2lb fish can give you the runaround.
video
Henry is fishing off Anna Maria Island in Florida and is targeting Gag Grouper. At this time of year, the Gag Grouper moves into shallow water often just 15ft deep and Henry has some great success using live Whitebait. Next up, Henry is back in the Panhandle near Carrabelle and Capt Billy Clyde spots some fish following behind the boat which Henry casts to and gets into a big and hard fighting Cobia. As they approach a lighthouse, Henry then hooks a big Barracuda which puts up a strong fight before landing a croc of a fish. Finally, we visit Ben Chancey in Tarpon hotspot, Boca Grande but today he's after something bigger. With the bait in the water, its' not long before they get some interest and Ben is hooked into a huge Hammerhead Shark and a long endurance battle begins. 2 hrs in and finally a 14ft and probably 1200lb Hammerhead is brought to the boat!
video
Its mid Winter and Henry is in Sarasota Bay on the West Coast of Florida, looking for some quality Redfish and Trout that are honing in on the vast shoals of Mullet on the flats. Henry is using a Mirrolure Provoker and soon hooks up and lands a chunky Trout. In Fish Eye we take a look at the Sea Trout in more detail which can be one of the easiest fish to catch on the flats given good conditions. Capt Billy Clyde then lands himself a slab of a Sea Trout in the 24-25 inch class. Next up we're in Ascension Bay in Mexico where Henry is targeting Snook in the mangroves. There's some big fish here and Henry has to hit and hold them quickly as they try and get him tied up in the mangrove. He loses a couple before getting a nice Snook on his Livetarget Herring lure. Finally we're in Charlotte Harbour where we see an innovative technique to attract big Jacks to your boat.
video
Henry is down in the Everglades looking for backcountry Tarpon today and is joined by Oliver Rogers. Oliver starts with live baits whilst Henry uses a LiveTarget lure that looks identical to the bait fish. Oliver hooks up first and although just a juvenile fish, it puts up a terrific fight on Oliver's light tackle. In Fish Eye, we take a look at Tarpon, their amazing fighting characteristics and how to catch them. Henry then gets a Tarpon on his new Livetarget lure which again puts up a strong fight. Next up the pair are in the Bahamas and fishing for big sharks in the deeper channels off Long Island. In the final part of the show, we visit Sarasota in South West Florida where Henry is out trolling the shallow waters for Gag Grouper which average 10-20lbs.
video
The shows kicks off in the world famous Mosquito Lagoon, part of the Indian River system on the East coast of Florida, and often knows as the Redfish capital of the world. The lagoon has very shallow water and often the fish are found in just 18 inches so being stealthy and quiet is critical for success. Capt Mike Mann guides his skiff near a tailing Red and Henry lands his bait on it with instant success. In Fish Eye, we take a look at the Redfish and why they are such great sporting fish and such a popular gamefish. As they move on, the pair spot a hole which appears to holding some Redfish, which Henry covers and another strong Red is soon hooked. Next up Henry is in Florida's Panhandle, out of Carrabelle and meets up with Billy Clyde to take on some Goliath Grouper. Billy hooks into one but it soon looks like the fish has hold of him instead, as a backbreaking battle gets going. With the skipper holding Billy and Henry also pushing up the rod, Billy gets control and finally lands a fish that weighs three times as much as him! In the final part of the show, Henry is fishing off Long Island in the Bahamas and starts things off with a nice Mahi Mahi before his fishing partner Dave Rogers catches a nice Grunter.
video
Fishing the Flats, team member, Oliver Rogers kicks off the show from Long Island in the Bahamas, and he's fly fishing for Bonefish. His guide spots a pod and expertly directs Oliver on to the fish before the Bonefish takes off to the sound of a screaming reel. In Fish Eye, we learn more about the Bonefish, the habitats they reside in and their feeding patterns. Oliver now wades the flat and again his guide finds a small pod which Oliver covers and another strong fish takes off for the horizon. Next up we're in the mangrove areas around Fort Myers, in Florida and Ben Chancey is fishing from a Kayak and hoping for some Snook. He fishes tight in to the edge of the mangrove and having noticed some nervous bait fish, casts his bait in, hooking up into a big Snook. He manages to land it despite worrying it might tip the Kayak over during the fight. But his next fish is even bigger which Ben estimates around 20lb. Finally, we join Henry in Ascension Bay in Mexico where he's after some shallow water Mutton Snapper which may be small but put up a great fight.
video
Henry is on the east coast of Florida off Jensen Beach and fishing for Goliath Grouper. After being smashed up a few times on rod and line, Henry resorts to using a handline and using a whole Bonito as bait prepares for a tug of war. As the fish reaches the surface after a tough fight, they now realise why they couldn't bring it up by rod and line. In Fish Eye, we learn more about the Goliath Grouper and how they became a protected species with no harvest allowed. On the Pacific Coast of Mexico, we visit Banderas Bay which at certain times of year holds big populations of Rooster Fish. As you'd expect the action is fast and furious here as anglers cast into the big shoals that are hitting sardines on the surface. In the final part of the show, we look at the Lobster migration in the Keys during July and how to make hay when the Lobsters are in town.

Henry starts this episode down in Ascension Bay in Mexico where is is targetting big Barracuda on the flats by sight fishing them. In Fish Eye, we learn more about the Barracuda, often called the 'tiger of the sea', how it hunts for prey and the areas it lives in. Henry then hooks and lands two spectacular big Barracuda in the clear waters of the flats. Next up we visit Puerto Rico, and the capital city San Juan, whose lagoons are loaded with Tarpon. Local guides, Magic Tarpon start by trolling live baits close to a tree lined shore they quickly hook into a smallish fish and go on to explain how best to fight and handle these powerful fish. In the final part of the show, Henry returns to his hometown area of Charlotte Harbour looking for big Snook and the first fish of the day is certainly that, estimated at around 37 inches. Oliver is the next to strike, also getting a sizable Snook which puts up a great fight on his light tackle.

Henry is joined by Oliver Rogers in this episode and they're fishing for trophy Snook in Stuart, Florida in a spot called 'the hole in the wall'. Using a Threadfin Shad as bait, Henry is the first to strike landing a beautiful big Snook before Oliver gets a another 30 inch specimen. In Fish Eye, we learn more about the Snook which has fast become one of the main Florida sporting species with specimens reaching up to 50lb. Next up we visit Ben Chancey on Sanibel Island near Fort Myers, to see him fishing under a causeway for Goliath Grouper, one of the toughest challenges you can get as an angler. Ben has caught over 200 Goliaths but it certainly doesn't look any easier the more you catch as he endures a back breaking battle to land this giant fish...and a broken rod to boot! He estimates it to be around 500lb and barely has the strength left to unhook it. In the final part of the show, Henry is with Capt Dan Latham in Charlotte Harbour, looking for some big Sea Trout. Dan is using a Mirrodine lure and is the first to hook up and its a lunker of a Sea Trout. After Henry catches another, we end up joining Chef Steve Adams as he shows us how to cook Banana Leaf Sea Trout.

Henry joins Oliver Rogers in the Bahamas to start this show and this time they are looking for Sharks that feed on the numerous inshore species. Seeing a Shark coming in on their chum slick, Henry casts out a bait in front of it and hooks into a good sized Blacktip Shark which is brought to the boat and released. In Fish Eye, we take a deeper look at the two predominant species of shark in the Bahamas, the Blacktip and the Lemon Shark before its Oliver's time to hook and fight a good sized Blacktip. In the final part of the show, we join Andy Eggebrecht in the Florida Keys as he enjoys some fantastic Tarpon fishing.

Henry kicks off the new season from the Grand Slam Fishing Lodge in Ascension Bay, New Mexico, one of his favourite destinations. His guide spots a big Barracuda and Henry expertly covers it with spectacular results. Ascension Bay has one of the largest Permit populations and it isn't long before Henry's guide spots one. Henry hooks up and the Permit tears line out before Henry lands a stunning 20lb fish. Next we see Sebastian Melani in Florida as his boat locates a huge shoal of Rooster Fish in a top water feeding frenzy, and he hooks up with one of these incredible fish. In the final part of the show, we visit Henry in Stuart, Florida where he tussles with the Goliath Grouper. After several failures with rod and line, Henry tries a baited rope and a tug of war ensues to bring one of these beasts to the surface.

George is fishing with friend and fellow skipper, Capt Kerry Wingo out of Key Largo. As usual the first job is to pick some bait so they tow a burly bag around and wait til the sardines pick up the trail before throwing the cast net. With the live well full, they head to a quiet spot in the Everglades that Capt Wingo has had some good sessions at recently. He throws out some of the bait along the shoreline to try and get the Snook fired up before they both start working the cover. Capt Wingo gets a small Snapper to start before he has a hard fight with a Jack Crevalle. The action keeps coming as do the species as George lands a Mangrove Snapper and Capt Wingo lands a small Snook. George then has some fun as his bait lands just over the edge of a small twig and the line suspends it enticingly on the surface, with a big Redfish locking on it quickly. A strong fight ensues but the slab of a Red, beats George up and lives to fight another day. Capt Wingo caps his day with a nice slot Redfish which George decides will look good on his dinner plate and George finishes up by landing a nice Snook.

George is down in Islamorada and heading out with Capt Frank Drudi today and with plenty of Mahi Mahi around, they are the main target. First up, they plan to pick some live bait and George is hoping for some Cigar Minnows which are very effective for Dolphin Fish. 20 miles offshore, they soon find a good area and the bites come thick and fast with George, Frank and the mate catching small schoolies one after another. They move location and find some more  Mahi Mahi but group are a slightly bigger average size and they get enjoy some more fantastic sport. With Capt Frank up top, he's able to spot the bigger fish and guide George on to them resulting in a spectacular end to the day on the water.

George heads back into the Everglades, this time with Capt Chris Hanson in search of Snook, Redfish and Speckled Sea Trout. Chris positions the boat on the point of a bay entrance and chums the water hoping to intercept any fish in the area. With no action coming and their chum being hit by birds, they decide to move to another spot and Chris strikes first with a fantastic Snook. George targets some dead trees by the shoreline and it isn't long before he also lands a nice Snook. He then hooks into another one and its huge, but unfortunately breaks George off near the boat. More Snook follow plus a chrome Redfish for Chris before they move into a small creek and target some Jack Crevalle. Chris ends a spectacular session with yet another hard fighting Snook to cap a brilliant day on the water.

George is out on his own boat today and doing a practice session with his guests for the upcoming 'Take Stock Backcountry tournament which raises money to help economically disadvantage children through education. First up he has to find some bait but the first spot produces nothing so they have to move again. George spots some Pilchards but before throwing the cast net he tries to winkle a few out on a Sabiki rig. He then throws the net and marks the spot so he can use it again for the tournament. George's guests today are tournament veterans and they want to try and find some areas holding Speckled Sea Trout which have been thin on the ground lately. To win the tournament, all 3 species of Trout, Snook and Redfish must be caught so these practice days are invaluable. Finding a couple of Trout, George decides to find some Snook and heads into the Everglades. They see a couple of big Snook and decide to leave them alone for the competition and catch a small shark instead. To end the show, George meets the tournament director who explains how the Take Stock Program works and why funding for it is so important.

In this show, we see highlights from the 2015 Hemmingway Key West Challenge where top teams battle it out to win the coveted top prizes over 3 days fishing. Marlin are the star of the show and worth 400 points but its important for the teams to catch more prolific fish like Dolphin Fish and Wahoo which also add to the overall points tally. With billfish thin on the ground on day 1, the competition is wide open but on day 2 and 3 a few nice Blue Marlin are caught and a couple of teams surge ahead. The prizegiving dinner on day 3 reveals all but who will pick up the top prize.

George is heading out with Capt Pablo Rodriguez from Big Pine Key today and with lots of fish around, there are plenty of options. They pick up some live bait from one of Pablo's traps before deciding to start by trying some sight fishing. Pablo spots some Permit far out but moving towards the boat and puts a crab on for George which he presents in front of the shoal. The Permit is one of the most sought after saltwater species, known for its fighting prowess, and George finds out just why that is as he hooks up to one and finally lands a stunning looking fish. They move location and try some bottom fishing, and George quickly hooks up again and this time its a small Brown Nosed Shark. He then sees a couple of Permit near the surface and an accurate cast proves successful. A great day is capped off with another Brown Nosed Shark for George.

George is meeting up with Capt Chris Johnson of Sea Squared Charters and the target today is Lemon Sharks which they'll be looking for in very shallow water. As Chris explains, the water temperature has been dropping recently which makes these fish more active and easier to tempt. After finding a good spot and putting the chum out, several sharks are seen near the boat so George puts his bait out and a Lemon Shark takes it immediately. After a good fight, George brings the shark to the boat and releases it unharmed. Seeing a bigger fish, George casts out towards it and again it takes without hesitation and George has a tough fight on his hands. With lots of sharks around the boat now, Chris decides to have a go and picks out a huge shark which again aggressively takes his bait. George also finds one and its a double hook up! An incredible session continues with barely a moment without a fish on.

George is fishing today with an old friend that he grew up with, Capt Tony De La Santos. They are heading into some skinny water in the Everglades, sight fishing for tailing Redfish. After finding a nice flat and seeing some reds, George starts by throwing a white soft rubber jerk bait. But with such calm condition and skinny water like this the fish are spooked when the lure comes by, so George tries a live bait with instant success landing a nice Redfish. George then hooks a big Snook which gives a strong fight before finally throwing the hook right at the boat. Anther tailing Red shows and George drops a Pilchard right in front of it and he soon lands the best Red today. Moving closer to the shoreline and a small inlet and they find big groups of Redfish which provide some excellent sport to end the day.

Key West is synonymous with Ernest Hemmingway and his love of fishing for Blue Marlin which inspired his book, the Old Man and The Sea. Generations of anglers have come here during the season to fish for these incredible sporting fish and in this episode we follow the action at the 2014 Hemmingway Challenge Key West Marlin Tournament. Conditions look perfect as the boats head out and start fishing and it isn't long before they find the fish. The scoring system is simple with 400 points for a released Blue or White Marlin, 50 points for a Sailfish and in the Fun Fish Category, 1 point per pound for a Dolphin Fish, Tuna or Wahoo. Plenty of big Dolphin Fish are caught before some Blue and White Marlin are boated bringing day 1 to a close. On days 2 and 3, the action really hots up and all the boats are catching Marlin, Sailfish, Dolphin and Wahoo. The weigh in reveals a tight finish with the top team, Ruckus winning with 490 points.

George is fishing with Capt Brian Cone from Contagious Charters today and after picking up some Pilchards with the cast net, head out to the first spot where they've heard there are some Blackfin Tuna around. There's also a good chance of Sailfish, Dolphin fish and Cobia and they start by using Kites to take the live baits out which George explains can give a great natural presentation as there's no leader in the water. After a while of patiently waiting, all three reels start peeling off line, and George grabs the middle one. The fish are False Albacore or Little Tunny and they've found a good shoal of these hard fighting fish. They move the boat a little and Capt Brian spots a nice Sailfish and expertly guides George on to it. A strong fight ensues before George lands a stunning Sailfish to cap a great day.
video
With windy weather around, Captain George Clark and hi friend, Capt Lain Goodwin decide to venture into the creeks and channels of the Everglades for some sheltered fishing. They start by collecting some bait by drawing Pilchards to the boat with chum and then expertly throwing a cast net to fill the live well. As Lain explains, pretty much every species they can find here is attracted to these Pilchards so they make an excellent bait. They head to the mouth of a creek where the wind is funneling in and cast their live baits into the edge of the mangrove. Lain hooks up first landing a nice Sea Trout which nailed his Pilchard. With no other hits, the move down the creek to try the other end hoping fish will be lying up there and it isn't long before Lain gets a small Snook, quickly followed by a better one. They both get a shock when George then lands a Tripletail which is unusual to find in such shallow water. With a few Jacks to finish the day, the pair prove that a good day's fishing can be had even in poor conditions.

Having already had 7 days of fishing fun on the water at Kenn and Fredrick Reef and crew and guests strap in for a few more huge days of fighting big fish and exploring Fredrick Reef. The guests head off for the morning, with Dan, Greg and Scotty chasing some Wahoo. Finding a patch of birds and a large bait ball they are in hope of some screaming reels and awesome surface action, but only until the sharks show up to shut it all down and ruin their fun. After a few hours of battling the sharks and Wahoo the boys decide to head into shore for a bit more relaxed fishing, chasing small reef species in the shallows. While some of the other guests fishing off of the island chasing some beautiful fish we take a look at the magnificent ecosystem which is Fredrick Reef, looking in detail at what wild life call these tiny sand cays home, from colonies of strawberry hermit crabs to large flocks of sea birds the amount of life on these small islands is unbelievable. We then get the chance to explore the majestic under water landscape which surrounds these natural wonders, it is full of beautiful corals and stunning fish life with visibility around 70 meters. Witness what the ocean and reef systems look like in these remote untouched parts of the world, where mankind has not been around to damage the ecosystem. Meanwhile Captain James and the crew get the chance to go for a bit of an explore too and check out the famous Fredricks Reef light house sitting at the Northern tip of the reef system. The light house is a massive navigation aid something that the old sailors who ran aground on these islands never had to help them navigate their way through the treacherous waters. Back on big cat Chef Jeff is preparing the following nights seafood buffet but for that he needs to source a couple fresh fish to go along side the rest of the meal. To do so he jumps over board with deckhand Harry, with their spear guns in hand, to go in search of the tastiest Coral Trout they can find that will go perfectly with the rest of the seafood buffet to come.The guests then come back for the night after having a great day on the water, they tell their story of the day the Big Cat goes silent over night as the guests get some well deserved sleep. As the next day begins the guests head out once more while Chef Jeff starts to prepare yesterdays catch for the up coming buffet. Learn how to perfectly cook Coral Trout as Chef Jeff talks us through his process of creating the most delicious sea food plater you have ever seen.While Jeff is in the kitchen cooking up a storm, Captain James is down below giving the Big Cat a well needed oil change. As the trip is coming to an end after a couple great days of fishing Captain James gets the chance to reflect on all of the amazing places they have visited over the past 12 months and all of the amazing experiences they have all shared. After another 38 hours steam back to the main land the guest jump off and pack up their gear and the crew say farewell as they welcome onboard another group of keen anglers and get ready to set off on another big adventure.

Captain James McVeigh and the crew on the Big Cat Reality continue their huge 14 day adventure out into the Coral Sea chasing big fish. The guests head off for one more morning at Kenn Reef before they need to head west to Fredricks Reef. Dan and Richard, two paying guests aboard the Big Cat head out into and decide to jump onto one of the small local sand cays to try their hands at a bit of beach style flats fishing and to do a bit of exploring around the obvious ship wrecks and local wildlife. As the tide drops the boys decide to head out into the shallows to chase some Giant Trevally. What follows is an epic session of GT fishing as the boys land a number of quite large Giant Trevally. As the day progresses the crew get the Big Cat ready to head west to Fredricks Reef but not before they take a small surprise detour for the guests to a special place called Coulder Bank. Coulder Bank is a remote un-fished sea mount rumoured to hold a large number of Dog Tooth Tuna and Wahoo. The next day beings with the boat pushing up to Coulder Bank as some of the guests hook up to some passing Yellow Fin Tuna. That kick starts what is a full on morning chasing Yellowfin Kingfish and Wahoo. The boys can’t seem to find the illusive Dogtooth Tuna that are rumoured to lurk in these waters, but that doesn’t stop them from having a great day fishing before they push on further to Fredrick Reef. After another night steaming the guests arrive at Fredrick Reef for the last half of their expedition. Fredrick Reef has not been fished in quite along time that’s why the YTK Addicts choose Fredricks, its a beautiful, remote, un-fished group of coral cays that definitely seem to produce the goods. Dan, Greg and Scotty head out to the back of the reef to pop for GT and Coral Trout, the boys have a cracker morning reeling in some stunning fish and getting some great photos. While the crew are back on the mothership resetting for their time at Fredrick Reef another group of guests are out on the Northern side of the reef chasing a flock of birds in hopes there are some big fish to follow. As the boys trawl through the large bait ball they hook up, and Paulie gets onto his first ever Sailfish, and after an amazing fight the fish is safely landed and released but not with out a couple photos and a few yahoos. Meanwhile the crew have a little surprise in stall, Captain James has organised a bit of crew training, a man overboard drill to finish off the day. The drill, although seems hectic and has a lot of moving parts goes off with out a hitch and the crew and tick that manoeuvre off off their bucket list. The crew then head back to anchor and get ready for the guests to come back from their first day of fishing at Fredrick Reef with stories to tell and thirst to quench

It’s the third day at Kenn Reef for the YTK Addicts, a group of keen anglers that have charted out Big Cat Reality to explore the Kenn and Frederick Reef systems in the Coral Sea.The Dogtooth Tuna are on the chew and Dingo, a paying guest aboard the Big Cat Reality is after an elusive 100kg plus Dog Tooth Tuna. The fish fight hard with explosive bursts of speed and make it difficult to land even an average sized Doggie. The Dogtooth Tuna is the hardest fighting fish in the ocean, but the guests like to mix it up a little and target some Wahoo also. Kenn Reef is part of a submerged continental block, called the Kenn Plateau. The Kenn Plateau lies off the North Eastern Australian coast and is a region characterised by a series of prominent, bathymetric troughs. Ships carrying cargo and supplies to Australia travelled further and further east away from the dangers of the Great Barrier Reef. However, many ran aground on Kenn Reef and some dating back to nearly 200 years ago had only recently been discovered by archeologists as recent as twelve months prior to the Big Cat Reality charter to this region. James knows full well there will still be a lot of unseen treasures lying on the reef and sand cay. Captain James wades through the water during low tide to find anchors still stuck wedged into the reef. After this he ventures on to a nearby sand cay to look for any other remnants. It is here that James discovers a lot of smaller metal objects clearly left behind from older ships that were wrecked on this reef. James then goes free diving in the lagoon to look for some larger items that may be strewn across the sea floor and that may not have moved because of the calmer waters. There are some great finds, which makes James think there could be even greater discoveries in the deeper waters that lay around the reef. While Captain James gets ready to go for a dive, some of the guests are up in the shallower water targeting some large Coral Trout, the water here is perfect for this species and the boys hook up in now time, landing a monstrous Coral Trout and with a couple of happy snaps, and a few measurements jotted down, they send the beautiful beast back to live safely in it's coral bombie home. Back on Big Cat James jumps over board in search of some some more hidden artefacts. Scuba diving in the deeper parts of the reef there is a lot to look at and think about with the abundance of life that lives in and around this small coral atoll. Humpback Whales, schools of Giant Trevally, large Coral Trout and even flocks of sea birds catch James’ eye. Exploring the beautiful underwater landscape he even forgets about looking for artefacts and just relishes in the astounding beauty that surrounds him

This episode of Big Fish Big Adventure follows the Captain James McVeigh and the crew on the Big Cat Reality for their largest trip to date, a 14 day sports fishing adventure out to the heart of the Coral Sea, Kenn and Fredrick Reef. Coming along for the ride is a group of keen fishos from South Australia, the YTK Addicts. These boys are seriously keen fishermen who target Yellow Tail Kingfish back in South Australia, but have high hopes of large Dogtooth Tuna out at Kenn Reef. The crew untie the boat and head out in the big blue with high anticipation of what will come. During the 38 hour steam to Kenn Reef one of the guests hook up to a large 250 kilogram Blue Marlin, with an epic fight and hours of manoeuvring the boat they finally land the large fish and with a few high fives and a lot a yelling the crew get back on with the trip. The rest of the episode follows the crew finally arriving at Kenn Reef to what seems like absolutely perfect conditions, From here the crew get all of the tenders and gear ready and send the guests off for their first day of fishing in this glorious place. Kenn Reef has not been fished for quite a long time and there for the fish in these waters most likely have never even seen a lure in their life, with that in mind the guests know they are in for a cracker of a first day on the water. Gary, Dan and Greg a couple of guests on the trip make the most of these after finding what seems like a hot spot for Dog Tooth Tuna and after a couple double hook ups and a few record fish the boys head into the shallows where they seem to hit it again, finding a large school of Giant Trevally that definitely get their arms stretched. After landing a couple great fish on the little boats the guests are hyped with excitement but the crew aren’t having such luck with their fishing. Captain James set his crew a goal to catch a decent fish at the new anchorage to prove its fertility, although he soon realised his crew are much better deck hands then they are fishermen. With not information much to go on James decides to jump over board and check out the lay of the land in this magical place. "It is quite something, scuba diving in a location that you know no one has ever dived before” said Captain James. After exploring the under sea landscape he comes to the conclusion that he know exactly where to anchor the mothership for the first nights fishing off the back deck, he hopes with the information he got from the ecosystem down below that he has put the Big Cat in the right place to get his guests onto some big fish once the sun drops behind the horizon.

Captain James McVeigh and the crew on the Big Cat Reality load up with a new group of keen guests and head out into the Swains Reef system for their first trip of the season. After an overnight haul the boat arrives at Sweetlip Reef, a remote and complex series of coral cays home to number of large fish species and other marine life. The first day is off to a bang and the guests are filling their cool bags, and as it is a line fishing trip the guests are out to catch as many edible fish as they can so they can take home an esky full of fillets. As the trip seems to be going well it takes a sudden turn for the worst as Captain James is alerted that one of the boats seems to be taking on water, he drops everything to try and get this problem sorted out asap. Whilst being caught up with the sinking boat things being to domino and James gets a back log of issues all due to wasted time having to fix problems. The crew seem to have lost the over night moorings for the tenders due to the tide rising, so Captain James takes out new deck hand Harry to try and recover whatever they can find. With finding the moorings not looking hopeful Harry spots a float sitting about 7 meters under the water, with a quick leap he is into the drink, diving down to try and retrieve the mooring. Having successfully retrieved the moorings James and Harry head back to the mother ship to finally winch up and head to a more protected location due to the incoming storm. Harry gets the opportunity to take one of the tenders and follow the mothership, he gets to have a bit of a fish along the way too happily landing a nice Giant Trevally. As the afternoon comes to an end and the storm begins to push towards the big cat Captain James receives an emergency call over the radio from one of the tenders, pleading that their anchor is stuck and the roaring current is putting them in danger. James lashes on a scuba tank, jumps into the RIB and starts to head towards the stuck tender. Diving down into unknown territory James has to stay alert to his surroundings as no one knows what other marine creatures may be lurking around. Having eventually found the anchor jammed up into the middle of a bombie James must lay down a camera to capture his salvage, fighting the current and the weight of the boat he finally gets a bit of leverage, enough to free and the anchor and chase it back towards the boat as they start to drift off in the current. Now back on the mother ship and in some dry clothes James gets the chance to have a chat to the guests about possible options for the rest of the trip, now that an even larger storm front seems to be heading their way. After a group discussion the decision is made to start to punch on through the storm and get home early to put a finish to what was a good trip.

This episode of Big Fish Big Adventure follows Captain James as he leaves Red Cliff port and heads to The Yard in Brisbane to get the Big Cat slipped and refitted in the dry dock.
 The Yard is the biggest dry dock on the east coast of Australia and homes many specialised factories and companies that purely focus on large ship maintenance and manufacturing. This will be James’ home for the next 6 weeks while the boat sits up on bricks getting stripped back inside and out and then completely refitted with new finishes, new equipment and a couple of new toys.
 Leading up the slipping there has already been 4 solid weeks of work on the boat doing what they can in preparation to go up on the slip, as every day on the slip pass with a slide of the credit card so James needs to make sure he uses his time wisely while the big girl is up on the bricks.
 
 With tense moments through out the episode there is drama for Captain James trying to get the boat finished in time for the first trip of the year which is a 7 day line fishing trip out to the Sweet Lip Reef, part of the Swains Reef system with a full load of guests and a couple new crew. 
 Follow James through the ups and downs of the mammoth effort it takes to get a 250 ton charter boat slipped and refitted. From having to replace both of his shafts and props to needing a full respray on the boat the Big Cat is in for a lot of work. 
 James’ original budget for the slipping was around $100,000 but after all of the unexpected issues James is slammed with a $250,000 bill something he was not ready for. As well as this James is stuck on the slip for an extra 4 weeks on top of what he planned for, putting a huge amount of pressure on the small business owner and his family.
 Will James be able to make it out of the yard in time to get to Bundaberg for the first trip of the season or will he be forced to call it off?

Captain James McVeigh and his crew upon the Big Cat Reality fishing vessel continue their final trip of the season out at Wreck Reef, a group of small sand atolls 540km Due east of Bundaberg the home of the Big Cat Reality. Having just moved locations from Bird Island over to Porpoise Cay Captain James takes a step back in time and visits the historical site where Mathew Flinders and a number of other 19th century sea men were ship wrecked onto a small sand cay. Mathew Flinders was the first man to circumnavigate Australia before he set sail back towards England and shipwrecked onto Porpoise Cay with 80 other passengers. What followed was a historical story of heroic efforts to get back to mainland Australia to retrieve another vessel and then sail back out, find Porpoise Cay and rescue the rest of the survivors that were left on the small sand island. While James is off having his own adventure the guests have been out tackling some monsters of the deep, fighting huge Yellowfin Tuna and massive schools of Wahoo. The guests get to relish in the beauty of where they are and the water that surrounds them. The crew then raise anchor and head to West Islet the most southern part of Wreck Reef. On the way the crew stop off at a deep sea mount called Gregs Knob to have a bit of a fish themselves, and after a couple of big fish are hooked they soon learn that maybe the sport fishing should be left to the guests and they keep heading south to anchor up at West Islet. Once they have arrived and wayed anchor Captain James decides to go for a late afternoon dive to try and find the perfect spot to sit the Big Cat for one more nights fishing before they have to steam home. Diving through the breathtaking underwater canyons and exploring the beautiful reef formations, James thinks he has found a suitable location, where once the sun sets, he feels might produce some sought after species, like the illusive Dog Tooth Tuna. While the rest of the crew are tying down boats and cleaning up from the day Chef Jeff in busy in the kitchen cooking up the last nights sea food buffet, some what of a last hoorah for the guests out here at Wreck Reef. Dinner is served and the guests have a bit of a fish off the back deck, while Captain James reflects on some of the sessions they have had off of the back deck in the past, landing monstrous fish and having the time of their life.

James McVeigh is an ex commercial diver who has recently opened a high end expedition fishing company taking clients out on the trip of a lifetime, catching giant fish and exploring untouched reef systems.  His  boat is the 'Big Cat Reality', which resides in the port of Bundaberg, a small coastal farming town located at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef, in Queensland, Australia. Captain James and his crew head out of the port of Bundaberg wrapping up a year of fishing with their last trip of the season, as they visit the Wreck Reef system, a number of small coral cays approximately 540km due east from Bundaberg for a nine-day expedition. Wreck Reef is famous as the small reef system which has accumulated a number of very old wrecks including that of the the old sailing boats the Porpoise and the Hope, which are connected to a great tale of bravery and heroic efforts to get back to the mainland by cartographer Mathew Flinders after having wrecked onto the small sand cay over 200 years ago. The trip then continues with the guests out in their tenders hunting down the largest fish species that Wreck Reef has to offer, Giant Trevally, Coral Trout, Dog Tooth Tuna and a number of other sort after species are targeted. We meet Billy Dee, owner of an Australian fishing company who has come out to Wreck Reef to test his new range of sport fishing rods against some of the hardest fighting fish the sea has to offer. Although all is going well the trip has its fair share of hiccups along the way and being so far off the coast of Australian Captain James cannot afford for anything to go wrong, he takes all precautions necessary even if that mean jumping over board to make sure the ship is anchored securely in a nice safe location. The episode finishes half way through the trip as the guests settle in for the night and look forward to another 4 days of fun fuelled fishing adventures.

The 2019 IFA Redfish Tour Championship comes from Venice, Louisiana, the premier Redfish destination in the States. 115 teams have qualified through the 5 regional divisions and they are going to be competing over two days to see who can bag the largest total weight of two fish each day. The Louisiana slot is up to 27", so anyone getting over 15lbs a day will stand a great chance. The preferred pattern is sight fishing, but high winds, heavy rain and rising water are in the forecast, so some deeper blind fishing may be needed. At the end of day one husband and wife team of Jimmy and Angela Adams hold a small lead over Kristian Robert and Fred Peterman and with them both bagging a couple of decent fish early on day two, it looks like it's going to be a straight shoot out.

The IFA Redfish Tour heads to Georgetown, South Carolina for the last stop in the Atlantic division and a last chance to qualify for the season's grand finale, the Championship. 62 teams are signed up and ready to enjoy a day's fishing in great conditions, with beautiful clear blue skies. One of our two featured pairs Tony Gaskin and Dan Connolly head off down the river into open ocean, hoping to head through a cut in a sand bar to access a backwater they are sure is holding fish, but they can't see the cut through the breakers and decide to fish some structure until the tide rises enough. The Redfish around here aren't massive and it's expected that any total over 8lbs will be right up there. We also take a look at the evolution of the Power-Pole which is celebrating its 20th birthday and has become an essential piece of kit for any tournament angler since it was invented by John Oliverio back in 1999. And there's a short preview of the Championship Finals from Venice Louisiana. To watch 2019 IFA Georgetown now, just login or join

The 2019 IFA Kayak Championship comes from Grand Isle, Louisiana. Competitors have qualified through regional events throughout the southern states and at stake is a place in the Hobie World Championships. The format here in Grand Isle is a two day event where the anglers are looking for the largest total weight from one Trout and one Redfish each day. From the outset the conditions are choppy in anticipation of the storm forecast for day two, so a big soft lure on a heavy weight is the preferred pattern, getting bait down deep along the channel where the shoals feed. There are some big Redfish to be had with a few competitors breaking their pb's, so expect some big totals come the final weigh in. There are also highlights of the Hobie Fishing World 8's from the Gold Coast of Queensland Australia, where 8 man teams from around the globe competed over 3 days for the title of World Champion Kayak Fisherman 2019. We also pay a visit to the ICAST exhibition 2019 held in Orlando, Florida to take a look at the new Hobie Mirage Drive 360 which takes the control of a kayak to another level.

In this episode the IFA Redfish Tour 2019 visits Steinhatchee Florida, a quiet fishing village on the Gulf side of the upper peninsular. It has recently been hit hard by storms, so much of the area is underwater with a clean up operation in progress. That's not put a stop to the fishing though and 99 teams have gathered at the legendary Sea Hag Marina, in the hope of netting the biggest total weight of a 2 fish limit in this one day event. The flood water has devastated the shallow bays, so the teams are expecting to make long runs to find clean water. One of our featured pairings is Justin Blanton and Billy Emerson, they're fishing in their first ever tour event. Their first reaction is "Man! There's a lot of boats... This is different", it will interesting to see how two novices handle the pressure. Our other featured pair, Adam Davis and Michael Neu have slightly more experience, they're planning to head off in order to find clear water where they can spot bait fish and then plan to spend most of day casting surface lures. Will either of them manage to fill a big bag? To watch 2019 IFA Steinhatchee now, just login or join

The second stop on the 2019 IFA Redfish Tour is at Houma, Louisiana. This is regarded as one of the best inshore fisheries on the schedule, with a host of options available. This year though the area is recovering from a recent hurricane which has left high muddy waters in its wake, so the anglers will need to think hard on where they are likely to find the fish. There are 106 teams competing for a total purse of over $50,000 and they are all looking to fill a two fish limit from a 20-28" slot. We have two cameras out on the water, each with a featured team and they both get off to a flying start with some nice early fish, in one case just a bit too good, its always very frustrating when a large fish turns out to be just over the slot mark. In the murky waters the guys are tending to use darker colours on bigger lures in an attempt to attract the fish, the general consensus is that it's going to be tough To watch 2109 IFA Houma now, just login or join

Coverage of the 2019 IFA Redfish Tour kicks off at Port Aransas, Mustang Island on the Gulf Coast of Texas. 54 pairs have gathered for this one day event, looking for their best two Redfish in the 20-28" slot. Reports from the pre-fish days were encouraging with shoals of Shad seen moving in with the Redfish just behind them. This stretch of coastline offers a huge variety of potential locations, with the strong winds dying away some of the teams decide to head out into the open water of the gulf but others prefer the more sheltered conditions found inshore on the Laguna Madre. Metallic spoons are a popular lure, but the one that seems to be most successful is the Berkley Gulp, a selection of soft rubber baits. All the competitors know that they are going to need a couple of fish in the 8-9lbs bracket to stand a chance of taking home first prize.

In this episode Des is joined by his good mate Keith on an adventure into the Celtic Deeps in the Irish Sea fishing for sharks. They're onboard The Antlantic Blue, skippered by Andy Truelove out of Dale, a beautiful village on the Pembrokeshire coast. It's a two and a half hour trip out to the Deeps where Andy thinks they will have a very good chance of catching a Blue Shark or two and possibly a Porbeagle. But the journey isn't dull, as there's quite often dolphins and whales to be seen. Andy recommends drift fishing, letting the boat follow the wind and the currents, hoping he can attract the sharks with the scent trail he is leaving with the chum in his 'Rubby Dubby' bag. They are using mackerel deadbaits, with the tails chopped off to stop them spinning and the bellies cut open to create as much scent as possible, dropped to a depth of around 50 feet. They've got four rods out at various distances from the boat and its one of Des's that's first to go. it's not one of the monsters they are hoping for but a nice 'bluey' none the less. The sighting of a Fin Whale creates some excitement but not as much as the bend in Keith's rod as he's into his first ever shark. The successful boating off a bluey in the region of 50lbs leaves him "chuffed to bits". Des adds another blue shark but is desperately hoping he can hook a Porbeagle Shark. His dream comes true towards the end of the day as he boats a lovely fish around the 40lb mark. Then Keith hooks the biggest Blue Shark of the day, just as they are about to head for home.

In this FREE EPISODE we take a look at some of the highlights from series 2 of Fishing the Flats. Host Henry Waszczuk has to be regarded as one lucky so and so, he travels to exciting, exotic locations and enjoys some of the finest saltwater game fisheries to be found on the planet. In this series he makes his first trip to Belize, where he stayed on the Turneffe Atoll and got to fish the coral reef lagoons for Bonefish, Permit and as we see in this episode Triggerfish. He is also spoilt for choice in his adopted home state of Florida, where he can fish the Gulf waters around his home in Charlotte Harbour or travel down to the Keys, where the variety of fishing is second to none or, as we see here hook a huge Sea Trout in Tampa Bay. Another new location is Puerto Rico where Henry enjoys some fantastic, high jumping aerial displays from the monster Tarpon on the end of his line. His trips to the Pacific coast of Mexico provide some great action such as the amazing Roosterfish we see him boat here. We also get a look at the selection of rods Henry uses throughout the series made for him by Hank Altenkirch and Dr BBQ Ray Lampe takes us through his recipe for Planked Tex-Mex Grilled Redfish.

We rejoin host Henry Waszczuk on his visit to the Turneffe Atoll resort in Belize and this time he's in search of the hard pulling Permit. One third of the angler's magical grand slam, Permit have amazing reserves of strength, speed and stamina, add to that their beautiful colouration of a dark grey and bottle green back graduating to a white belly with vivid yellow markings and they make for one desirable catch. Henry's fishing the inside water flats of the island in about 3ft of water, looking for the the black dorsal fins breaking the water as a tell tale sign of a shoal. Henry's using a hermit crab bait on his lightweight spinning gear and although none of the Permit he catches approach the all tackle record of 60lbs (27.2kgs) caught in Brazil, they are still decent fish providing long tough battles. The programme contains some great tips and advice on how to target and successfully hook these fantastic fish and there's also another great recipe from Dr BBQ Ray Lampe, this time it's Blackened Grouper prepared on the grill.

In 'Puerto Rican Tarpon' host Henry Waszczuk and the Fishing the Flats team have unearthed a fantastic new destination to rival Costa Rica, the Bahamas and Belize, its Puerto Rico. An island in the middle of the Caribbean, it can offer excellent all round saltwater action but in particular it has established a reputation as a Tarpon hotspot. Henry is in the capable hands of brothers Armando and Karim Chaar who run the Magic Tarpon guiding service, reagrded as the best on the island and they have taken him out onto the San Jose Lagoon. It offers between 4 and 8 feet of water and seems to be absolutely packed full of the 'silver kings'. The great attraction of Tarpon is the fight they give you, no matter what size they are there will be plenty of thrills and spills as they jump out of the water on the end of your line. Henry is in for a real treat though, as he hooks one weighing in at 145lbs, needless to say it gives him one hell of a battle. There's another excellent BBQ recipe from chef Ray Lampe, this time it's cedar wrapped scallops. To watch Puerto Rican Tarpon now, just login or join

In this episode Henry's fishing his home waters of Charlotte Harbour in south west Florida. He's out on the flats with Capt Todd Gilbert and they've got some favourite spots, where they know they can find a wide variety of fish, pretty much all year round. Charlotte Harbour has 129 square miles of protected fishable waters which includes grass flats and hundreds of mangrove lined islands and inlets. Its known for its migratory Tarpon and has a huge population of Redfish, Snook and Sea Trout. Today they are setting out not really having a particular target in mind, just determined to follow the tide and the conditions and have a fun day on the water. First up they target an old disused pier, casting their small live baits around its concrete pillars. Todd hooks a lovely Crevalle Jack, with its yellow fins and distinctive black spot. Henry hooks a couple of smaller ones that he puts in the live well as bait for something a bit bigger later in the day. After a decent Snook each, Henry puts those small Jacks to good use and tempts a Goliath Grouper to bite, cue a long hard fight. In case you're hungry at the end of all this action, Dr BBQ Ray Lampe shows how to cook a grilled Salmon Frittata. To watch Henry Fishing Charlotte Harbour now, just login or join

Henry is back in Belize, wading the shallow lagoons of what is the second largest barrier reef in the world. This time he's targeting Triggerfish, which will enter the lagoons from the ocean in search of food, such as small crustaceans, molluscs and urchins. Henry's casting a small hermit crab bait, prepared for him by his local guide. The idea is to cast with the wind and drop the bait right in front of the Trigger's nose. Once hooked they put up a great fight and are incredibly fast in the water. There are about 40 different species of Triggerfish, the most common being the 'Queen' with its incredibly vivid colour markings and the 'Ocean' which are dark grey in the water but become almost white under the stress of being hooked. It's these that Henry has in his sights, they are also known as Ocean Tallys. The Triggerfish gets its name from its ability to make its first dorsal fin rigid, as a means of avoiding being eaten, an angler can 'reset' this by pressing down on the third dorsal fin, as if it were a trigger. The Triggerfish is an excellent eating fish and chef Dr BBQ Ray Lampe shows how to prepare grilled Triggerfish tacos with a mango salsa. To watch Trigger Happy in Belize now, just login or join

Henry heads just a few miles south for this episode to fish out of Boca Grande on Florida's Gulf coast, he's out in open water with buddy Mark Brooks and they are fishing over reefs and heavy structure for Goliath Grouper. These are the largest fish found off south west Florida and can grow to over 500lbs. Because they are delicious to eat, they were heavily over fished commercially, during most of the 20th century, seriously endangering their survival. But a moratorium, in place for over twenty years now has seen their numbers rebound dramatically. They hold up in holes and crevices amid the structure on the bottom and can be tempted out by sizeable live baits. They put up one hell of a battle, Henry certainly knows he has been in a fight after boating his first. For his tip of the week he shows how to crimp a 400lb monofilament leader to a size no. 14 hook. Big gear for big fish. On his lighter tackle he also catches some great looking Amberjacks.

In 'Open Water Mexican Mix' we have more action from Henry's trip to Mexico's Pacific west coast, this time out in open water in search of a mix of game fish. He's a guest at the Punta Mita resort and the waters around here hold a wide variety of exotic species, all capable of growing to formidable sizes and with the ability of putting up a great fight. Its great fun boatfishing for a day, when you're not quite sure what you're going to catch, especially if you're using light tackle. First up they hit a feeding shoal of African Pompano, these are beautiful looking members of the Jack family with petrol shades of sheen coloration and one long spine extruding from its dorsal fin. The all tackle record for these is just over 50lbs or 22kgs. Next up is a slightly bigger proposition, cue a screaming reel and a massive battle as Henry boats a lovely Roosterfish. These fish migrate up and down a 300 mile stretch of America's Pacific coast and grow to twice the size of the Pompano. In his tip of the week Henry shows how he ties his braid to his mainline using a Double Uni knot and Dr BBQ Ray Lampe shows how to make the most of your catch with a smoked Pompano pizza.

The Atlantic Ocean stretches out to the east and the Gulf of Mexico to the west, add to that hundreds of islands, sand bars, spits and gullies and you have fishing heaven. Its early Spring so the species Henry is targeting is Shark. He's out with expert local guide Capt. Steve Impallomeni who knows exactly where to find them, he's tied some lacerated fish to the back of the boat to create a chum scent trail and Henry is casting chunks of the same deadbait fairly close to the boat. First to bite is a small pup which is not too difficult to handle but the next hook up puts a huge bend in Henry's rod and he know's he's in for one hell of a fight. The show also contains plenty of facts and figures about the various species of Shark found in Florida waters and Henry's got some great tackle tips and advice.

It's on the country's Pacific west coast and it's here that host Henry Waszczuk spends a day cruising offshore with Billfish Safaris in the company of IGFA record holder Sjon Harless. They are trolling Benito and Ballyhoo deadbaits hoping to hook one of the classic gamefish species readily found here. It's not long before one of the reels is screaming and a beautifully coloured Dorado or Mahi Mahi is jumping high out of the water on the end of the line. And between two hard fighting acrobatic sailfish Henry takes time to talk us through his tip on setting up your reel to maximise your chances when boat fishing like this.

In this episode Henry is fishing for Bonefish in Belize. This small Central American state sits between Mexico, Guatamala and the Atlantic Ocean and is home to the second largest coral reef system in the world. Henry is staying on an atoll in the middle of this at the Turneffe resort, surrounded by crystal clear shallow flats. He can cruise these in the boat of local guide Winston "Pops" Cabral or wade in about a foot of water. Bonefish can be found on the flats just about all year round, they thrive on the lush ecosystem and love to eat the small crabs that live here, so it is with an imitation crab fly, tied by his buddy Cory Koenig that Henry has success. The Bonefish here can grow to around 8lbs in weight but the average is 3-4lbs and Henry has a great session with "Pops" catching a few of these, only interrupted when half of his largest fish of the day is grabbed by a predatory Barracuda. There are plenty of tips on reading the conditions, casting techniques and choosing the right fly as well as another excellent recipe fro Dr BBQ Ray Lampe, this time grilled skewered shrimp with orzo salad.

Henry doesn't have to travel too far from from home in this episode, which is a good job as he's paddling his own kayak. He's fishing the shallows around Pine Island Sound on the Gulf Coast of Florida targeting Sea Trout. These fish love the hundreds of islands, points, sand bars and grass flats that provide their feeding grounds when they are migrating and even the very largest trout can be caught close to shore. The Florida record is 15lbs 6ozs. Henry's fishing in 2-4 feet of water looking for sand holes, where the Sea Trout tend to hold up. He's using lightweight gear, his Carrot Stix ML rod with a Qualia 30 NLF reel and casting soft plastic lures. There are plenty of fish around and Henry has a great session with his largest being over 24 inches. In his tips section Henry advises on rod selection and shows how to prepare the types of soft plastic lures he was successfully using here.

In the first of a new series, host Henry Waszczuk visits Mexico's Pacific Coast to spend a day out on the waters of the Bahia de Banderas with Hollywood actor/director/producer James Keach. They are targeting trophy Roosterfish, distinguished by its "rooster comb" of seven long spines out of its dorsal fin, these sought after fish can grow to over 1.6 meters and a weight of over 50kgs or 100lbs and are renowned for putting up a very hard fight. The Roosterfish is a voracious predator on smaller fish species and it's very easy to spot when they are attacking a shoal of baitfish such as Sardines near the surface, this is the area to cast and retrieve your surface plugs. James is first into a fish and after a gruelling battle that runs for almost 15 minutes lands a lovely specimen. The local captain has put them on such a large shoal that they both enjoy plenty more action. Henry also talks us through a selection of his favourite 'chuggas' or top water plugs and how best to use them and chef Ray Lampe shows how to cook marinated tuna steaks on the BBQ.

Join filmmakers and adventure anglers, Josh and Jamie as they embark on an epic fishing trip to Cape York in northernmost Australia. The Cape is one of the remotest areas of Australia and home to a terrific array of sport fishing species including the most famous of all Australian fish, the hard fighting Barramundi. Using a 56ft cruiser as their mothership, the guys are well equipped with fishing and camera gear to capture the best fishing that Cape York has to offer. Arriving by plane, they first scout the area with a helicopter trying to identify the best locations. There are just so many places to fish here with lagoons, mangroves, inlets, rivers and reefs, and almost certainly the fish here won't ever have seen a lure so hopes are high as they start fishing. Day one sees the weather gods play up with a huge downpours of rain but this doesn't stop the team as they fish the mangroves and catch several nice Barramundi as well as Blue and Threadfin Salmon. With a break in the weather, the fishing hots up with more stunning, aerobatic Barra coming to the guys. After a while in this area, they realise that all the rain has coloured the water too much so decide to move location, South in search of clearer conditions. Finding another inlet, the guys find some stunning mangrove and are soon into more hard fighting Barramundi. As well as the terrific boat fishing, the team experience some great action from the shore using light tackle spinning and fly rods to catch Queenfish. With some incredible scenery, and amazing wildlife shots including some big saltwater crocodiles, this film gives a great insight into the spectacular fishing to be had on Cape York.

Host Henry Waszczuk heads offshore from Englewood Beach, Florida with local guide Kyle Martin. They're fishing a well known marque called 'The Box Cars' which is a man made reef in about 70' of water, holding a huge variety of species. It's early spring and the waters are just starting to warm up, so the tactics are to anchor up and put a large amount of chum into the water. The guys start off on their lightweight gear and are soon into some Snapper, but once they lose a couple to what they suspect is a prowling Goliath Grouper they get the heavier gear out and go for him. These are quite awesome fish that can grow to over 8 feet in length and up to a weight of 800lbs and they love to patrol the bottom around reefs, wrecks and other features, preying on smaller fish. Henry spots some large fish entering the area on the sounder and thinks they must be Amberjacks, so the guys go for these with artificial lures on their lightweight gear again. The AJs are hard fighting fish who put up a great battle. With his tip of the week Henry shows how to make up a leader, thats sets your hook away from your weight when fishing off the bottom.

Henry heads up the coast to Wilmington in North Carolina to fish the the inshore backwaters of the Cape Fear River in the company of local guide and expert Capt Rennie Clark. They are after the Redfish that thrive in the creeks, ponds and grass channels that make up this beautiful, sheltered inshore hot spot. Henry is happy that his 20lb braid is strong enough to cope with any battles in the reeds and grass along the margins, where the fish like to hang out and that's where he and Rennie cast their jigs and plastic lures. Its a red letter day and Henry catches fish after fish, his rattle-head hard plastic lure proving most successful. This is also featured in his tip of the week, where he talks us through some of the all time favourite lures he keeps in his 'Inshore' tackle box.

Henry is back in North Carolina with Captain Rennie Clark and this time, he's to be doing something a little different as he'll be fishing for Redfish in the surf as they migrate up the coast. They start off in some backwaters of the Cape Fear River and they expect it to be tricky as its March, the water is cooler and the Reds don't feed as much. Nevertheless, Henry soon finds a pod of Reds and using his Rockport Rattler lure lands a lovely 28 inch Red to kick off proceedings. In Fish Eye, we take a look at Redfish cousin, the Black Drum which is also a great sporting fish which can grow to prodigous sizes and inhabits the same areas as Reds. Next up its shore fishing and as Henry takes control of boat and searches the shoreline for a shoal of Reds. When they find one, Rennie casts in and the action is fast and furious with so many Reds together like this. In Henry's tip section, he shows us the Gulp Shrimp and how he combines it with a Rockport Rattler to make a deadly Redfish lure. Now its Henry's turn to fish as Captain Rennie finds another sizable shoal of Reds and first cast he's into a strong Red in the surf. These saltwater Reds are stunning fish and more silver than when in the backwaters and lagoons but fight every bit as hard. The team also discuss record Black Drum and we see some footage of some big Black Drum that Henry and his guests have caught before including an 82lb goliath. To watch just login or join

Henry is in Sarasota Bay on the central west coast of Florida and today fishing for Snook  with guest and PGA Tour Pro golfer, Andy Bean. The area they'll be fishing is full of  sandbars, channels and small bays which local guide, Captain Billy Clyde knows like the back of his hand. Billy will be hosting the pair and the target is to get the shallow water Slam of a Redfish, Snook and Speckled Sea Trout. In Fish Eye, we take a look at the Common Snook, its range, feeding habits and lifecycle. Henry starts proceeding with a small Snook before Andy hooks into its bigger brother and lands a cracking 40 inch Snook which the whole team are delighted with. The pair then land some beautiful Speckled Sea Trout before taking some time out to show us a new Livetarget lure that he's been using. As the day comes to a close, Henry hooks into a good sized Redfish which strips off all off his line before being boated and the slam is complete. Finally, we take a look at some of the biggest Snook ever caught, and see at a giant 22lb Snook Henry caught a few years ago. To watch just login or join

Henry is in Florida again with charter boat captain TJ Shea and taking on one of the hardest fighting saltwater fish around, yes its the Amberjack. The offshore waters around Tampa bay in the Gulf of Mexico is home to an array of fantastic species but its the Amberjack that reigns supreme in many anglers eyes. In Fish Eye, we take a detailed look at the Amberjack, its habitat, feeding habits and its incredible power. Henry starts off with a couple of smaller fish which still give him quite a battle before TJ hooks and lands a much bigger one. In Tip of The Week, Henry shows the Rockport Rattler, a fantastic jig for Amberjack and he discusses exactly how to fish it and explains why its so deadly. Back in the boat and Henry has another back breaking fight on his hands and a 40lb plus fish is finally subdued and brought to the boat. We also take a look back to a previous trip that Henry took in 2015 when he fights and lands a huge Amberjack, but that pales in comparison to the world record which is a stunning 163lb.

Henry is fishing with old friend, Captain Rennie Clark in the backwaters of the Cape River, in North Carolina, an area renowned for its fantastic Redfish and Striped Bass fishing. As they cruise in the Boston Whaler along a reed lined channel, Rennie is the first to strike hooking into a good sized Redfish, just 5 mins after starting fishing. In Fish Eye, we take a look at the Redfish or Red Drum as its actually the official State fish of North Carolina, which currently holds 10 of the 16 world records for it. Back to the action, its Rennie who catchs the 2nd fish of the day too, with another chunky Redfish coming to the boat. There's some great information in the episode about locating Redfish and the signs to look out for to find feeding Reds. Henry finally gets into a nice Red before introducing his Tip of The Week where he modifies a Livetarget Shrimp Lure to make it totally weedless. This is the lure that's doing the damage today as its perfect in this kind of backwater habitat. To watch just login or join

This time, Henry is in the sportfishing capital of the world, the Florida Keys and he's fishing offshore for one of the hardest fishing game fish around, the Cobia. They're out in open water and looking for cruising Cobia on the surface. Upon spotting a fish, Henry quickly covers it,  throwing a Ballyhoo bait fish into its path and the fight is on. These fish can't be horsed in, they're powerful and Henry needs to really take his time.  In Fish Eye, we take a look at the Cobia, their range, feeding habits, appearance and most importantly where to find them. These fish can grow to over 100lb with the world record, a staggering 135lb and we take a look back to 2014 when Henry caught his biggest Cobia of 37lbs. Back to today and there's more big Cobia coming to the boat as the Henry's guest, Mark lands one after another. These fish are great eating too, with the firm white fillets perfect for grilling, pan frying or baking. For those anglers interested in catching Cobia, this episode is a great introduction to show you just how to do that, in one of the world's fishing hotspots for them. To watch just login or join

In this episode, Henry is fishing in the waters off Destin, Florida with Captain William Pugh and they're targtetting the hard fighting Scamp Grouper. Also known as Brown Grouper or Broomtail Grouper, these fish are frequently found around wrecks and structure in deep water and average under 10lb but can sometimes go above 20lb. They're 40 miles offshore and fishing in around 300ft of water and Henry strikes first but as he starts pulling his fish up, Capt William also hooks up to one. These are one of the finest eating fish you can catch in the Florida Panhandle so they're certainly pleased to put a few in the boat. Capt William shows us a great bait tip with squid that can prove deadly year round. As Henry gets another hook up, he suddenly has a much bigger fish eating his fish and is gets into a backbreaking fight. 20 mins in and the fish is still deep and draining Henry but in the meantime, William has landed the biggest Scamp Grouper of the day, a fine fish in the 20lb bracket.

Henry kicks off the series from Jacksonville, Florida and is fishing for Redfish with top charter boat skipper, Capt Steve Crowder on the St John River. In the upper reaches of the river, trophy Largemouth Bass can be caught but around Jacksonville its the Redfish that can reach 50lb and the Black Drum that go to 100lb that dominate. After the boat anchors in a strong current, Steve deploys the rods baited with Blue Crab baits with almost instant success as Henry hooks into a powerful Redfish. Its a 28lb Redfish and a fantastic start to the series but they both know there are bigger fish out there. In Fish Eye, we take a look at the Redfish in more detail, its feeding and migratory habits, how to locate them, and the tackle you'll need to land the big ones. Henry's reel then screams again with the line tearing out and he knows he's into another big fish. This time its a male, a big Bull Redfish and definitely a bit bigger than Henry's first. It isn't long before another is landed and again its a massive Redfish. The fishing here in Jacksonville is proving to be electric and the size of these Redfish makes this a true fishing hotspot to start the series. To watch, just login or join

It's late Spring, the temperature is on the up, so host Henry Waszczuk heads down to the Florida Keys hoping to catch some monster Tarpon. He joins top guide Chris Morrison, based in Marathon, a city in the Keys set over 13 islands, known for their beaches and barrier reef. The gulf side here is a bit deeper than further north, so the larger fish tend to hold up during migration. Their choice of bait for the day is live mullet and crab and they're quickly into a fish. Tarpon are incredibly strong, hard fighting fish, so there are plenty of jumps in an attempt to throw the hook. But it is the second fish of the day that provides the most excitement, hooked amongst the pillars of the road bridge where it was lying in wait for food, this Tarpon leads them a merry dance, in and out of the pylons, under and around the bridge a few times, calling on great boat handling skills from Chris. And it pays off as they are able to land this monster in the shallows and get a great up close look at it. Henry's tip of the week is to show you how he ties his favourite knot, the Bimini Twist and chef Brad Townsend's recipe is a grilled crab crusted Cobia steak.

We're in Henry's homewaters of Charlotte Harbour in South West Florida as he shows us how to catch some Winter time Redfish with local guide, Capt Dan Latham. Between December and March the tides are lower and the water gin clear so things can be trickier but they set out early and find a school of Redfish in some very skinny water and Henry duly hooks up. In the Fish Eye segment, we look at some of the best holding spots for reds in winter, plus how to approach them and cast in the right areas. This is classic Redfish fishing with very skinny water and plenty of tailing Reds in the Turtle Grass and it isn't long before Henry gets into a lovely 9lb fish which gives him quite a tussle. Henry talks through his lures and how he adds jig heads to his scented soft plastics. Back to the action and Capt Dan spots some more tailing reds in just a few inches of water and Henry delivers the perfect cast again. In the recipe section, we are treated to Redfish Tacos.

Henry is back in the Bahamas again on Long Island and fly fishing for Bonefish and anything else that comes along. This time he's fishing from a skiff and his guide gets him straight on the fish with Henry hooking into a strong Bonefish which gets him snagged in some Mangrove. In Fish Eye, we look at the various kinds of flast to be found here, with both inshore or backwater and offshore flats which means that you can cover many areas on a single tide. Next, Henry tries some wade fishing with his friend Oliver and spots of pod of 5 bones which Oliver quickly covers and hooks a good sized fish. Henry then shows us the various outfits that he likes to takes with him when Bonefishing as there are often other fish like Barracuda, Sharks and Jacks around so having some other rods set up and ready can really pay dividends. And this is exactly what happens next as they spot a Barracuda which Henry hooks into with his spinning rod. This is quickly followed by a Mutton Snapper, one of Henry's favourite eating fish and Chef Brad then shows us a great fish and chips recipe using Snapper.

St Augustine in Florida is one of the region's most historic towns but its also a saltwater fishing hotspot and in this episode Henry is fishing with local guide Capt Jason Keating. The many oysterbeds in the area and fast falling tides make this a fantastic place for catching Redfish and Henry starts with some wade fishing for tidal Reds. He makes a great start, carefully wading on to some feeding fish and hooking up with a stunning fish. In the Fish Eye section, we learn more about the unique habitat in this area, with its oysterbeds,  flats, creeks and gullies and how anglers can  find the drop offs where predators like Redfish will often patrol. In the backwater lagoons of St Augustine, the tide drops fast so you may only have 20 mins or so fish before moving to a new spot but with a few mins to go, Henry shows his skills and hooks and lands another lovely Red. He then takes to  the flats boat with Capt Keating and the focus on one of the channels near the oysterbeds with immediate success. Later Henry lands a lovely 5lb Flounder, a real 'doormat', before ending the episode with another chunky Red showing what a great location for fishing, St Augustine in Florida really is.

Henry is down in Costa Rica sampling some of the amazing deep sea fishing to be found there. What's unusual in Costa Rica is that often the best fishing is close to the shoreline with big predators feeding in the deep water and structure here. The skipper starts by trolling along the shoreline and Henry is soon into a big Roosterfish of around 75lb, a great way to get off the mark. Just as a storm starts rolling in, Henry hooks up again with another massive Roosterfish, this time the skipper estimating it be around 90lb. As the weather clears, the crew see a Sailfish cruising on the surface and when Henry gets his lure in front of it, a spectacular aerial fight ensues.

Henry is on the Western Coast of Florida in this episode chasing Redfish with Capt Jim Huddleston in the Clearwater area. The tide is coming in so the pair start fishing on the Mangrove Islands where they expect Reds to be feeding. The fish are close in to the trees which also means snags so Henry needs to bully the fish out quickly and does a great job, landing of good sized Red to get off the mark. In the Fish Eye segment, we look at the mangrove habitat the Reds feed in how they use it to ambush prey. Finding Mangrove holes, which can be fish magnets, and 'skip' casting is key to success here. As the tide pushes out, its timeto fish the adjacent grass flat waterways and again Henry finds almost immediate success hooking a good red. Clearwater certainlyshows why its upthere as a Redfish hostpot as Henry goes on to enjoy a fantastic session.

Henry is out with the fly rod in this episode as he targets Bonefish on Long Island in the Bahamas. After locating a nice area to wade fish, Henry spots a good sized school of bones and manages too pick one off straight away. In the Fish Eye segment, we explore how important the tides are on the shallow flats and the effect they have on water temperature, which in turn affects the Bonefish and their movements. This knowledge will help you find the right areas at the right times of day and conditions, to maximise success. Conditions aren't ideal today as the sky is overcast and there is a brisk breeze which makes fish spotting harder but by focusing on the right areas, Henry finds consistent success. There's some big fish in the school he's near but its proving difficult to pick them out with so many smaller fish around. To watch just login or register

In this episode, Henry is in North East North Carolina fishing amongst the numerous flats and creeks of the Pamlico Sound for hard fighting trophy  Redfish. Starting in a small creek, Henry targets the shoreline with soft plastics under a popper float and is soon into a nice 25 inch red, which isn't the monster he is after but a good start for sure. In the Fish Eye segment, we find out about how to fish Redfish habitats successfully, by finding the right areas and using stealthy tactics to approach the fish as this shallow water species is extremely spooky and sensitive to boat noise. In open water, Henry's guide spots a huge swirl as a Red chases Pogies, a popular baitfish for Reds, and Henry casts his popper perfectly towards the fish and the fight is on.

The fishing in Yucatan, Mexico is great all year round, determined to prove it is host Randy Bowser, who'se out in the harbour of his home town of Progresso on Christmas Eve, looking for an Xmas Tarpon. These giant silver torpedoes love the water alongside the commercial fishing vessels moored up in the port, where they can feed on the waste scraps that get thrown overboard. Randy's using a glass minnow lure, with which he's had loads of success in the past. But as he says "When you're fishing for Tarpon, take nothing for granted."

In San Felipe Road Trip, host Randy Bowser heads back to the Rio Lagartos Nature Reserve at the northern tip of Yucatan, stopping off to have a look at a few cenotes along the way. These are subterranean water pools of crystal clear blue water, that become exposed when the roof of the cavern collapses, they provide magical spots for swimming and snorkelling out of the hot Mexican sun. San Felipe is a large fishing town, that is the gateway to Rio Logartos, providing access for anglers, bird watchers and inquisitive tourists. The nature reserve is home to thousands of species of birds as well as Snook, Tarpon and a host of other fish species. Randy's fishing in about 3-4 feet of water where the ocean comes right up against the mangroves. The shoreline is broken up by small channels and inlets and although the guide can manoeuvre the boat into these, Randy has to cast his small topwater lure in some fairly tight situations, so plenty of improvisation is required.

Host Randy Bowser takes you on a tour of a couple of the diverse locations available when Fishing the Yucatan Coastline. First up, he and good friend and fellow guide Bob Thomas are fishing on the Ria at their hometown of Progresso. It's a backwater lagoon of crystal clear water that's only 3 feet deep and they're lure fishing for the Speckle Sea Trout that are found here in large numbers. Small rubber jigs and top water lures seem work best, the Sea Trout love attacking the surface lurers and provide some spectacular action when they do so. The second location is the Biosphere Reserve at Rio Logartos, on the Northern tip of Yucatan, where Randy teams up with Diego Nunez Sr. the Reserve is another area of rias and lagoons, but this time they're targeting Tarpon and Snook. They start in open the open water of the lagoon, where they can see the Tarpon and can cast at them. Then they head into the smaller, tighter channels amongst the mangroves where a large fish might be lurking under the vegetation.

In Mahi Mahi Madness, the Fish Guyz, Captains Lain and George decide to try something new. They head out oceanside to have a go at kite fishing. This is where you quite literally fly a kite away from the boat and from it suspend your hooklengths, so that the bait is presented on the surface of the water. They are are joined by local buddies Trey Zoeller and Carlos Padron and the constant offshore breeze makes for perfect conditions. First catch of the the day goes to Trey and its a Mahi-Mahi that George weighs in at around 25 tacos, but there are plenty of other species around such as Triggerfish, Skipjack Tuna and Grouper. A couple of smaller Mahi are being played when Trey hooks the monster bull of the shoal and an epic battle ensues. To watch Mahi Mahi Madness now, just login or register

Captains George and Lain try something a bit different today, they head west, over to the Gulf of Mexico for a bout of Cobia Chaos. Its a beautiful slick, calm day, perfect for sight fishing, but the Guyz start with too smaller bait so they're catching little Jack Crevalle's. These in turn are then being taken by sharks on their way to the boat, so the Guyz have some great tussles coping with these on their light gear. As they move up to a bigger bait, they spot a shoal of Cobia and once they hook one they are surrounded by a load of them. Plenty of double hook ups and the chance for Lain to get greedy and try to target the biggest one of all. To watch Cobia Chaos now, just login or register

In 'Free Jumping Sailfish' it's a beautiful calm day in the Florida Keys with cobalt blue skies, so Captains George and Lain are heading out into deep water, happy to catch whatever comes their way. They're fully prepared, with some freshly caught live bait and a cool box full of ice, and George would like to take something tasty home for dinner. He's not disappointed, over one of the wrecks he has marked, they find a shoal of Yellowfin Tuna and each manage to catch a decent fish. After a very large predator chews away the bottom half of an Albacore Jack they decide to move further out to sea. George then hooks a large Sailfish, they can travel at 70mph and always put up a great fight. There's plenty of aerial action and after 30 minutes, he manages to bring it alongside the boat. As the Guyz head back to chef Luigi Maestri with their Tuna, they agree it has been a fantastic day's fishing. To watch Free Jumping Sailfish now, just login or register

In 'Shallow Water Shenanigans' Captains Lain and George are joined by fellow local guide and good friend Brian Gwilliam, who takes them a couple of hours north to one of his favourite spots, just off the coast of Miami. In about 8 feet of water they're not sure what you might catch, as this area on the edge of the bay attracts both inshore and deeper water species. Scattering a mixture of live and dead baits on the surface, the Guyz attract a lot of interest and are very quickly in to some Mutton Snapper and Yellow Jack. Brian even gets a large Snapper to take a fly. He then recommends a move to a spot where he thinks they might catch a Permit, probably the pinnacle of all the sight fishing species in South Florida, as they are pound for pound one of the hardest fighting fish. With Lain spotting from the roof of the boat, looking for the tell tale Black tails, Brian manages to hook a decent fish, which puts his skills thoroughly to the test, as he is only using a 20lb leader and lightweight tackle.

In 300 Fathoms the Fish Guyz, captains Lain and George head a few miles off shore in to open water. With them they have Sammy Milazzo, who as well as being a deep water specialist is also a marine artist. They start by targeting Blackfin Tuna around a wreck in about 60 meters of water, using fairly light tackle. There are plenty to be had and they fill the cool box with and George landing the largest at around 30 Tacos. Then they head further out and Sammy shows them how to use the motorised reels to lower a bait down to 300 Fathoms where the Sailfish should be lurking. Back on shore Sammy shows the Guyz around his studio and challenges them to a paint off. Lain wins, but you get the feeing he was given quite a bit of help.

Everglades Snook - Captains Lain and George head out to one of their favourite areas, Florida's Everglade National Park which has hundreds of miles of mangrove covered shoreline, creeks and bays. They like the look of a mud strip feature in the shallows and when George catches with his first cast, he's sure it's going to be a good day. They're targeting Snook, but there are plenty of decent Jack Crevalle around to keep them occupied to begin with, but as they always say 'where you find Jacks you find Snook' and so isn't long before theses hard fighters make an appearance and they catches seem to get better and better. The day is spoilt slightly by Lain being bitten on the finger by a Catfish, George doesn't notice the blood all over the boat, as he's into his biggest fish of the day. With Lain patched up they head back to base where chef Luigi shows them how to prepare George's favourite Fish Tacos. To watch Everglades Snook now, just login or register

Lain is on the dock early preparing the boat as today the two captains are going fishing in the Everglades, that is providing George turns up on time. As usual, the first task is to pick up a plentiful supply of bait so the pair head into a nearby bay and George sets to work with his cast net. They start by targetting some Speckled Sea Trout using soft plastic lures under a cork float and Lain hooks up pretty quickly before George hooks into a much better fish. Unfortunately George loses it and attaches all the blame to Lain for supposedly being slow to bring him the net. Sea Trout aren't the only fish on this flat and the pair soon have many Jack Crevalle around the boat and some excellent sport begins. Moving locations is key for continued sport and as soon as they do, George hooks up with a lovely Snook before Lain catches a chunky Jack Crevalle. And as the sun goes down, the fishing hots up as Lain and George take advantage of the increased fish activity in the fading light.  Having worked up quite an appetite, George and Lain head to Sundowners in Key Largo for some grilled Oysters. The Everglades offers some excellent fishing in shallow water and this episode shows why it has such a deserved reputation. To watch just login or register

George and Lain have a guest fishing with them today and are heading around 5 miles offshore from Key Largo looking for hard fighting Amberjack.  In between a healthy bit of marital bickering, they manage to fill the live well with Blue Runners and Grunts which are ideal bait for Amberjack. As the more experienced offshore fisherman, George is playing Captain today and positions the boat on one of the many wrecks in the area and gets the guys straight onto the fish as guest angler, Bill quickly hooks and starts fighting one.  The fish here average between 30-50lb and pulling one up from over 200ft is quite a workout as Lain is also soon to find out. After an exhausting fight, Lain brings a cracking 40lb AJ to the boat and is mighty relieved that the battle is over. This just isn't a fish that you can keep on catching and Lain looks completely beat, much to George's amusment, but Bill then hooks into another large Amberjack and another hard fight ensues. This has been a great day's fishing and the guys return to the dock to enjoy a fish taco or two. To watch just login or register

Captains Lain Goodwin and George Clark Jr, The Fish Guyz decide to visit waters that they haven't fished for a while, so head 30 minutes north for what they hope will be a Biscayne Bay Bonanza. The bay stretches for about 35 miles south of Miami and is open to the Atlantic Ocean, Lain and George are looking to fish its mangrove covered southern shoreline, broken up by many creeks and river inlets. They're targeting Tarpon and Snook but there's plenty of Snappers and Jacks hanging out in the same spots. George is more obsessed with his stomach than usual as every fish they boat, he measures by the number of Tocos it will fill. But Lain is in a Catch and Release frame of mind. The fight gets a little more exciting when George hooks the first Snook, at 7 Tacos. They then head out to some deeper water in the middle of the bay and find a shoal of Spanish Mackerel, these hard fighting, nimble fish can grow up to 40 tacos in size. After a beautiful 17 taco Red Grouper they head back to the mangroves and George digs out his old fly rod and reel to see if he can remember how to cast. He sure can and hooks the fish of the day, a small Tarpon. Not to be outdone just as they are about to head back into the sunset, Lain hooks a lovely Snook. This is released as well, much to George's disappointment, 'Boy, there's nothing better than a fish Taco'. To watch Biscayne Bay Bonanza now, just login or register

In Fishing for Kids, Capts. Lain and George have been asked to catch and donate some edible fish for their local school's charity Fish Fry. George is up to his usual antics in the bait shop making Lain think he's going to be spending the day with a big kid, not just fishing for them. After buying shrimp, they catch some fresh Pilchards, so are fully baited up, which pays off, as soon as they reach the reef they are straight in to fish. Plenty of Snappers and Jacks, the action is so frantic that the bait's not even reaching the bottom before its taken. Once they have filled the cool box, they head out into deeper water to try for something a bit bigger and end up with a few Yellowtails. These are taken back to Sundowners where chef Bobby Stoky grills them up a treat, whilst the kids enjoy their charity Fish Fry. To watch Fishing for Kids now, just login or register

With a cold front and strong winds sweeping across the Keys, the Guyz are worried about where they are going to be able to take their next clients and successfully catch fish. They decide to recce for the day and head to the slightly more sheltered, inshore reaches of the Florida Everglades and target Lemon Sharks. These predators, that can grow to almost 3 metres in length, are at home in shallow sub tropical waters and although they are not considered a threat to humans, can give a nasty bite if you put your hand in the wrong place. Armed with freshly caught Barracuda and Mackerel as bait, the guys struggle at first. The sharks just don't seem interested in the cold morning water, but returning after lunch, they manage to hook a beauty. As Capt. Lain says 'Anytime you set out to catch a specific species of fish and you're successful, makes it a great day on the water.' To watch Lemon Sharks now, just login or register

Capt Lain spends most of his time fishing inshore and around the everglades in shallow water, so Capt George takes the lead as the pair head out in to blue water to fish Off the Edge of the reef. The coral reef of the Florida Keys is the only living reef in the US. It's huge diversity of species means there is plenty to catch, usually in 30 - 60 ft of water. It just a question of finding the right spot. At their first mark their chum attracts lots of small unwanted fish to start with including Blue Runners, then the first two decent Snappers get eaten by a large Barracuda as Lain has got them near the boat. After George loses another good fish when his hook pulls out they decide to move and its a good call as now they are into plenty of fish and seem to have lost the big predators. Yellow Jacks, Mangrove Snapper and some Black Grouper all to be taken back to eat. On the key at Sundowners, chef Bobby Stoky shows them how to cook fresh grouper goujons in a spicy breadcrumb mix.

In this episode Jon heads to the Sailfish Oasis Resort on the Pacific Coast of Guatemala, which because of its excellent, long standing catch and release policy and the absence of any large commercial fishing is renowned for its billfish and tuna. He's on board the Allure II for a couple of days with the aim of catching a Sailfish on the fly. The only way to do this is by using the bait and switch technique, where the crew attract a fish to within casting range, using hookless baits or plugs, then Jon casts his fly at the fish as the teaser is quickly pulled out of the way. Sailfish are one of the fastest fish in the water and use their speed to generate some impressive airtime when they jump, so reeling them in to the boat is always exciting and hard work. Jon also samples some typical Guatemalan cuisine and nightlife, in the nearby city of Antigua, as well as visiting an ecologically conscious coffee plantation.

Jon travels down to Cabo San Lucas on the southern tip of Baja California, Mexico. In the 1950's it became the sport fishing mecca for Hollywood super stars such as John Wayne and Bing Crosby and it still attracts its fair share of celebrity A-listers. But its unique diverse marine ecosystem and a huge variety of species, makes it a must visit destination for any serious sports fishing enthusiast and the venue for some of the richest tournaments. Jon's spending a couple of days on board with skipper Grant Hartman, of Baja Anglers and he's set himself the target of catching a Roosterfish on the fly. To help him, Grant suggests they use the "Bait and Switch" technique whereby a member of the crew casts a hookless live bait to attract the fish, Jon casts his fly close to this, then the live bait is quickly reeled in on the first sign of a fish leaving it with only the fly to take. Other species seem to fall for this and Jon is quickly in to a few Sierra Mackerel as well as a decent Jack Crevalle before achieving his goal. To watch Cabo San Lucas now, just login or register

Pier Fishing for Garfish - Host Paul Worsteling has made the short drive round Port Phillip Bay to Mornington, where the large pier by the harbour provides the ideal location for an easy "rock up and fish" session with the minimal amount of gear. His gear is even more minimal than intended after leaving his tackle bag in the kitchen, but he's able to beg, steal and borrow the bits that he needs from the other anglers. There's a close knit community of regulars fishing off the pier, all looking out for each other. It seems most of them are after the Garfish that move around the harbour in shoals. These Southern Garfish are miniature billfish that can grow to just over 50cms. The ones here are about half that length. Paul tries to attract them to his swim using a basket of stale bread soaked in tuna oil as a burley or chum, he regular throws a handful of dry mix over the top of this and then uses a hook bait of 3 or 4 maggots under a stick float. This simple method proves very effective and he takes home a bagful of Gar that he then shows how to prepare and fry. Delicious. To watch Pier Fishing for Garfish now, just login or register

Red Emperors - Once again Paul is on board the Wai Nawana skippered by Alistair Lau heading out of Cullen Bay near Darwin in North Australia. He fishing with local guide Tom Hughes and the pair are targeting Red Emperors. These fish aren't true Emperors, they are a member of the Snapper family or Sea Perch and they are regarded by Australians as one of the finest food fish to be had. Tom joined the iFish team two years ago ago as the "Apprentice" and has rapidly worked his way up the ranks to the point where he is now giving Paul as good as he gets in both the banter and fishing stakes. In about 20m of water they are dropping either squid or sardine deadbait down to the bottom, but there are other species lurking there and they catch a nice Mulloway and a Nanygai before Tom lands his first ever Red. They then switch, with some success, to squidgy plastics before Paul catches a Barracuda with the bacon left over from breakfast. To watch Red Emperors now, just login or register

Host Paul Worsteling and his brother-in-law Greg Ison are heading out of Melbourne and up to the Goulburn River in search of some Early Season Rainbow Trout. Luckily for them, a few days earlier the Victoria Fishing Authority released over 7 tonnes of stock fish into this river system, most of which were monster Rainbows. The two have found an idyllic location, parking the caravan just yards from a beautiful, wide bend in the river, so its only seconds before they are casting their lures in. Paul is using his favourite Rapala jointed brown trout pattern, but it is Greg who is the early star of the show, hooking a couple of massive Rainbows on his trusty spinner. After Paul manages to get in on the action, Greg ends the session with a genuine trophy fish at 5.8kgs or 12.8lbs. To watch Early Season Rainbow Trout now, just login or register

In this Alaskan Trophy Adventure, Paul Worsteling, Cristy and Jet are on the trip of a lifetime, staying at the ATA Lodge on the Alagnak River in Alaska. In this episode local guide Jacob McGee, takes them a few miles downstream to a stretch of the river known as the Braids. Here there are lots of deep holes, all holding massive numbers of Salmon. They expect to find Chum, King and even Pink Salmon, a variety that only returns every two years to spawn. Paul's convinced that the only colour fly or plastic lure worth using is pink, as it emulates the salmon roe, so his tacklebox is full of it. However there are so many fish in the river, it looks like you could catch with just about anything. To watch Alaskan Trophy Adventure now, just login or register

Sooty Grunters is an Australian nickname for the Black Bream and in this episode Paul is in for a real treat, he's being taken heli fishing by Josh Liddle of Hinchinbrook Adventures, and they are travelling 100kms into remote North Queensland, where the Herbert River cuts through rocky mountains creating some amazing scenery. They are targeting the Sooties that are here in numbers, sight casting lures. The Black Bream can grow to over 50cms so anything approaching that is a good fish. They are surprised to see a Barramundi so far from the sea and apparently very happy in the crystal clear mountain water. Josh takes the chopper up into even more rugged terrain, where Paul is able to cast into the splash pool of a waterfall and still hook a Sooty. To watch Sooty Grunters now, just login or register

The period of February through to May in the Northern Territories is Barra Time, when anglers travel from all over the world hoping to catch a mighty Barramundi, Australia's favourite fish. Paul Worsteling has made the pilgrimage and is up at the crack of dawn to join local guru Shane Compain, who promises Paul he has picked the right time, on the right tide. They're fishing the Daly River at Nauiyu, about 250kms south of Darwin. The river is tidal at this point and the water brackish, and at this time of year the Barra are moving up stream to feed on the mullet that are here in numbers. They start by trolling lures, green seems to be the most effective colour, and Paul's rod doesn't take long to bend over. The Barramundi are a fantastic looking silver scaled fish, they are always measured in length and anything over 1 metre is considered a monster. To watch Barra Time now, just login or register

Wyangala Dam Yellowbellies - Paul heads inland to the Wyangala Dam reservoir, where he is joined on his boat by Tackleworld's Josh Lambert and local guru Ken Smith. The reservoir is renowned for its Yellowbellies otherwise known as Golden Perch, they are a predatory fish so its a choice between a fresh bait or a lure. Ken laid a few pots overnight to catch some freshwater shrimp, which act as the former, but Josh has decided to go with a drop down, slow roll, soft plastic lure. Most fish love a bit of structure and Wyangala has plenty of sunken trees, the obvious place to start, the shrimp and the plastic prove equally successful. To add a bit of variety to the day, Ken suggests they leave the boat and walk along the shore, sight fishing for the Carp that grow to over 20lbs in here, they can easily be spotted by the clouds of mud they push up. Paul catches a lovely common on the worm and Josh a mirror on the lure. To watch Wyangala Dam Yellowbellies now, just login or register

Black Hole Sockeye - Another episode from Paul's recent trip to the ATA Lodge on the Alagnak River in Alaska. Here he heads 4 miles up river with local guide Megan McGee to the Black Hole, named not because it is murkily deep, but because it is so full of holding Salmon that the shoal appears as a huge dark shadow under the water. And every variety you can think of seems to be here, the Pink Salmon, that only visits every two years, Chum, Chinooks and of course Sockeyes. The Sockeyes are probably the best for eating, so Paul saves one and Megan's brother Jacob shows how to grill it over a wood fire beside the river.

Mighty Mulloway - Paul heads over to the Hawkesbury River estuary again to team up with Wayne "Mulloway" Annetts and they only have one species in their sights. The Mighty Mulloway or Jewfish as it is also known, after its jewel-like ear stones, can grow to over 50kgs and there are some very large examples in these waters. They are up before dawn to prepare Yellowtails by de-boning them to make a butterfly of flapper bait and after a few early taps and knocks one rod goes big time. Obviously, not able to guarantee they only hook their target species, others make an appearance including some very nice Flatheads, a baby Hammerhead Shark and a Bluefish or Tailor, but the Mulloway is the star of the show with its beautiful subtle colouration and distinctive silver spots down its lateral line.

In this episode Paul drives an hour and a half inland from Melbourne to Lake Windouree in the centre of Ballarat, in search of Redfin Gold. He's invited Angus "Jimmy" James on to his boat, for some expert local advice and Jimmy points him in the direction of a large shoal. The Redfin, or Perch are a natural predator and since their introduction into Australia have become a bit of a pest, threatening indigenous species. Paul claims that this is the first time he has targeted them, but it doesn't take him long to get his spinnerbait lure working and quickly hooks up. They are hoping to catch something approaching Jimmy's PB of 47cms long. The episode also features a session Paul had off Namotu Island, Fiji deep sea fishing with Ben Wilson, where they had a double hook up of Yellowfin Tuna whilst trolling skirted lures.

Brisbane Water Kingfish - Brisbane Water is an extensive branch of the Hawkesbury River estuary about 75 kms north of Sydney, on Australia's east coast and offers a huge variety of fishing opportunities. Skipper Scott Thorrington is based in Gosford at the top of the water and he gives Paul a taste of two very different types of fishing. First up they head out into open water on his larger boat, in search of the mighty Yellowtail Kingfish, that's after having first caught some Mackerel, that they de-bone and use as fresh bait. He also takes him out in his small boat, where they cruise the shoreline of the bay, lure fishing for whatever's patrolling the edge of the drop off. It turns out they find a shoal of Flatheads that provide great entertainment. To watch Brisbane Water Kingfish now, just login or register

Port Phillip Bay is the largest enclosed sea in the southern hemisphere, it is bordered for most of its coastline by Melbourne and its suburbs and because it is relatively sheltered, provides a great location for a day's boat fishing. Paul teams up with local guru Aaron "Red" Habgood and first up, on the slack tide, they head to a spot where the Calamari Squid have recently been spawning. As well as being a very tasty catch to take home for dinner, the calamari provide an excellent fresh bait for the main target of the day, the King George Whiting. These are bottom feeding fish, which although not being one of the biggest fish in the water, are one of the tastiest. They also then provide a bait option for Paul's third target species of the day, the Red Snapper. To watch Port Phillip Bay Melbourne now, just login or register

King Salmon Alaska - Host Paul Worsteling thinks its pretty cool to be staying in a place thats called King Salmon. He's flown all the way from Australia to the heart of Alaska and he, Cristy and Jet are lodging on the Alagnak River. It's rammed full of fish. On the first morning he's out with guide Jacob McGee on a lovely bend in the river, where the slack water next to a sandbank attracts a shoal of Chum Salmon, they're a few weeks from spawning so have started to change colour, giving them the nickname "Zombie" or "Zebra" Chum. A few hundred yards up river and the colder water of an inlet attracts Arctic Char, they're feeding on salmons eggs, so choosing a bait is easy. Paul and Jet then head out after King Salmon or Chinook, they're very easy to spot in the water as their bodies are bright red. They are the largest of the Pacific Salmon and can grow to over 45kg. For a small diversion Paul joins a fellow Aussie traveller on a short walk to a nearby lake, the "Hike for Pike", and they're not disappointed as the king of freshwater predators is there in numbers.

The Fins with Teeth here are Mako Sharks and Paul Worsteling has travelled to St Helens in Tasmania, sport fishing mecca, where the Makos are prolific. He's onboard with Josh Hammersley and they're heading out to the shelf. Paul's decided to try something a bit different and wants to catch a Mako on the fly, Josh says "I think you're crazy, but we'll give it a go". First up is to get the burley or chum in the water, Josh uses frozen pieces of Salmon which, as they slowly melt leave a lovely scent trail. Paul has made his own flies using lots of multicoloured shiny tinsel to imitate a slimy Mackerel, a bait the sharks just love. However when a Mako at well over 200lbs appears he decides that it might be better not to risk his lightweight fly gear but to trust the heavy tackle and a conventional mackerel head. The ensuing battle is still titanic and Paul is rewarded with a magnificent catch. To watch Fins with Teeth now, just login or register

He has been coming here since he was 13 years old and it provides some of his earliest fishing memories. In this episode he joins up with local expert Frank Milito and as the two launch the boat into the lagoon, the sounder shows there are plenty of Bream to be had. The Bream have conventionally been caught on a prawn or worm but here the guys are using lures, which they cast out as they drift across the water, and they are soon into the fish. A good Black Bream will be over 1kg and 40 cms in length and if you're lucky you would hope to catch 2 or 3 this size on any trip. To watch Bemm River Black Bream now, just login or register

Watch Paul Worsteling go Beach Fishing for Australian Salmon, in this episode of iFish. Paul is in Port Lincoln and heads over to the National Park, a protected headland which overlooks Boston Bay, the largest natural harbour in Australia, where he has been told there are shoals of Salmon to be found. His local expert guide is 11 year old Archie Coote, who first takes Paul to a highpoint above the beach, so that they can spot exactly where the Salmon are shoaling. The technique is to cast a lure out as far as you can and then retrieve it quickly, hoping the Salmon chase it towards shore. Young Archie shows Paul how it's done, landing a beautiful trophy Salmon "the coolest fish I've ever caught". To watch Beach Fishing for Australian Salmon now, just login or register

Paul is in Port Lincoln, known as 'the seafood capital of Australia', and is heading offshore on a 24hr charter fishing trip to target some King George Whiting and well, whatever else comes along. At their first mark, it isn't long before Paul hooks into some nice Snapper on his Paternoster rig. Next up they drift onto some Nannygai and Paul inexplicably manages to land 3 fish with just 2 hooks on his rig! As evening falls, the move into a prime spot for King George Whiting and Paul soon lands a nice one, followed by a Blue Spot Flathead, 2 of the finest eating fish you could imagine as as Paul continues fishing, the skipper cooks up his catch. The following morning they first target some squid around the boat, before finding a fantastic Whiting spot and catching some very good sized ones. On the way back, they decide to do some trolling with Rapalas and hook into some Southern Bluefin Tuna, just proving how rich with sealife these waters around Port Lincoln are and how incredible the fishing is.

In "Fishing out of Townsville" - Paul heads to Townsville, Northern Australia with all sorts of fishing in mind. First up he joins local expert Derek Maynard for a cruise around the mangrove lined islands and creeks where they hook Black Spotted Cod, Barramundi, Queenies and of course Mangrove Jacks. As always the mangroves provide natural cover in which the fish lurk as well plenty of snags, which make playing them very tricky. He then heads out into the channel with Tony Mossop, where they use freshly caught bait to target Golden Snapper also known locally as Fingermark Bream. Finally he trolls the bay with Roly Newton who's had 50 years in which to perfect his Spanish Mackerel fishing technique. He uses a 6 hook herring deadbait held down in the water by his trusty old down rigger. Its very effective. To watch Fishing out of Townsville now, just login or register

Port Elizabeth sits on South Africa's east coast and its estuary and surrounding shoreline offer incredible saltwater fishing for a variety of species. Wesley Peens is joined by a group of anglers from Pure Fishing as they embark upon a rock and surf fishing trip hopeful of success despite fairly rough conditions. After using a cast net to catch some live bait in the surf, Wesley puts a line out beyond the breakers. But its Francois who is first into a fish as something pretty sizable picks up his live mullet and a strong, back breaking fight ensues. After bringing the fish into the shallows, the formidable sight of a rare Sandbar Shark appears and Francois is delighted with his catch. It isn't long before Wesley gets on the scoreboard either as he locks horns with a trophy sized 12kg Kob. Francois then tries out a rocky outcrop stepping up his tackle to target the Black Musselcrackers that will certainly reside there. These powerful fish can reach weights of 35Kg so strong gear is needed to get them out of the rocks quickly. This isn't fishing for the faint hearted as nerves of steel are required to horse these fish in whilst manouevering position on the rocks as the waves crash in. Another stunning episode from the Reel Africa team which shows off the incredible shore fishing to be found on the Port Elizabeth coastline. To watch just login or register

One of the biggest tourist attractions on the coastline of KwaZulu Natal in South Africa is the annual Sardine Frenzy, where shoals of migrating sardines, as long as 7km, are forced by warm currents to swim very close to the shore. Hundreds of people will congregate to either spectate or participate, as nets are cast and huge numbers of fish are hauled up the beaches. Naturally, all this activity in the water and the inevitable sardine casualties it creates attracts larger, predatory fish and therefore great opportunities for the sports angler. Sharks are there in force and Wesley Peens is determined to catch one of these beasts. He is also after one of his favourite species the Kob, which requires slightly more cunning and skill. The fishing's so good an early morning session runs on into the following night. To watch Sardine Frenzy now, just login or register

These fish are widely known as the 'tastiest fish in the ocean' but they aren't the only fish around in this thriving ecosystem and after catching a nice live bait, Wesley casts out beyond the surf looking for Giant Trevally. Things are a little quiet in the heat of the day but in late afternoon, the fish switch on and Wesley catches something unusual and quite striking, a Potato Bass, before landing a beautifully coloured, Speckled Snapper. Fishing into the night, Wesley hooks up another hard fighting Speckled Snapper which really doesn't want to leave the reef. Day 2 and Wesley starts by lure fishing for Green Spot Trevally which dwarf in comparison to their Giant cousins but also put up a great fight. Meanwhile, Morgan is determined to catch a Southern Pompano and persists with his bait setup of sea lice.

In Kob in the Surf, Wesley Peens heads over to Port Elizabeth, where he joins up with local guru Francois "Franna" Van Zyl and his buddy Darren Goosen for a few days fishing for Kob. The conditions make it tricky with an onshore wind blowing just a bit too hard. They try an assortment of baits, Chokka, which is a large piece of squid cut and tied to look like a small squid, as well as live baits. But the Kob are a crafty fish and very particular in where in the surf they will lurk. So success comes with being able to read the contours of the sand and look for the right colouration in the water. Get it right and the reward can be a 30lb bar of silver.

Beach Fishing for Sharks - People travel from all over the world to Durban on South Africa's eastern shoreline, to fish for the tremendous variety of species that can be found here. Wesley Peens is local, so he doesn't have to travel quite so far and can enjoy a day's fishing from the rocks or beach pretty much whenever the urge takes him. Here we join him and a few mates as they spend a day making the most of an onshore wind that seems to bringing some rather large Ragged Tooth Sharks into range. These are big, strong fish, that put up a great fight, giving the guys a day to remember. They enjoy it so much they carry on into the night - addicted or what?

Rocking the Surf presents the highlights of Wesley Peens recent shore fishing action along the Kwazulu Natal coastline, that extends for 500 kms along South Africa's eastern side. Sand Sharks are incredibly powerful creatures, so they put up one heck of a fight. They are actually members of the Ray family and are bottom dwellers, so don't have a mouthful of sharp teeth. He also hooks a few Diamond Back Stingrays or Skate, which because of their large sail-like wings can also generate a huge amount of power, making them another hard fighting fish.

In Zambesi River Raiders, Dexter Grewcock of Pure Fishing SA is on the trip of a lifetime to Matoya Lodge on the Barotse Floodplains of the Zambesi River. On day one he's targeting Tigerfish, the apex predator in the river, first off using surface lures walk-the-dog style. But it is when he switches to small Bulldogfish live baits that the action really starts and he catches a PB at just over 15lbs, a magnificent trophy fish. The Barotse is also famous for its monster Bream, and after a trip downstream and an overnight camp, Dexter has a second memorable day catching another PB, this time a Nembwe or Yellow-belly Bream at just under 10lbs and then his first ever Thin-faced Bream. Dexter acknowledges what a privilege it is to fish a mighty stretch of river like this and how the experience is literally a spiritual one . To watch Zambesi River Raiders now, just login or register

In this episode of Reel Africa we join freshwater specimen anglers Werner Lubbe and John Dearden for a session at Aqua Paradiso on the outskirts of Johannesburg. John has pioneered specimen fishing in South Africa for over 20 years, he is a contributor to The Carp Angler magazine and the creation of Aqua Paradiso as a specimen carp lake is due in no small way, to the interest he has generated in the sport. He and Werner are on a session just before the lake is officially re-opened and they are fishing pop-ups off the bottom with PVA bags of bait. The crystal clear water makes the fish exceptionally wary, but John is able to bag a couple of lovely 20 pounders. To watch Carp Fishing South Africa now, just login or register

These Diamond Back Skate are members of the Ray family, a close relation to Sharks. Because they are not sought after as a human food source, they are not an endangered species and can be found in large numbers along most of the South African coast. In this episode Wesley Peens is up at day break and heads down to his local beach hoping to catch a few of these amazing creatures. The large wings, that create their diamond shape, can generate a huge amount of power in the water, so once hooked they are liable to put up a tough fight and any sudden change of direction can cause the rod to react violently. But once on the beach it would be easy to miss them, as they are camouflaged so well. To watch Diamond Back Skate now, just login or register

Blue Water Bad Boys - Morgan O'Kennedy only goes after "angry fish", Black Marlin, Blue Marlin or GTs. But he's lucky, because based as he is in Vilanculos on Mozambique, he gets to fish for plenty of these bad boys on a regular basis. Here, he's joined on his boat by Reel Africa's Wesley Peens who has one target in mind, hooking a monster GT. The unique ecosystem around Vilanculos provides a marvellous, rich environment in which these big fish can thrive, and they can grow to over 50kgs. Anything approaching that will be considered a success, so over four days they try a variety of lures and poppers in an attempt to get one to bite.

Albert Falls in Kwazulu Natal played host to the 2017 Bass Classic, sponsored by Yamaha. 132 pairs competed over two days looking to bag the best aggregate weight of largemouth Bass, with a five fish limit each day. The water level in the lake was low, due to a recent drought so opinions were divided as to whether this would make the fish easier to find or have drastically affected their numbers. The area near the dam wall proved to be most fruitful and from here, a winning weight of just over 22kgs was bagged. It was also where the largest fish of the weekend at 4.2 kgs was caught earning one successful angler a new Yamaha boat. To watch Albert Falls Bass Classic 2017 now, just login or register

This Tarpon Catchin' Collection contains some of the best action that Randy and his team have enjoyed over the past few sessions. Monster Tarpon are numerous in the harbour area of Progresso, on the Gulf Coast of Mexico, probably attracted to all the fishy by-products discarded by the local fishermen, so Randy regularly makes this the number one spot when he has a guest in his boat, with spectacular results. Tarpon always put up a massive fight, especially when lightweight tackle is being used and here we see a few that got away as well as some of Randy's classic catches.

Paul and Christy are in Flinders, just south of Melbourne, and taking a trip out for King George Whiting, one of Australia's favourite table fish. Making an early start, they first pick up some calamari for bait (and for dinner) before turning their attention to whiting as the tide starts to turn. En route to their favoured location, they spot some birds working the water and find a large shoal of Australian Salmon which is too good an opportunity to pass up. After finding a sheltered bay and putting down a burly bucket, Paul and Christy set about trying to catch some whiting but there's plenty of other species about and it takes them a while catching Silver Trevally and Flathead before a cracking King George Whiting shows up. The session just gets hotter and hotter with the rods going off constantly and a succession of species coming to the boat including a Horned Shark and a Gummy Shark. To watch just login or register

Paul kicks of the series in style with a feature length episode from Fiji on the beautiful private island of Namuto where the fishing is fantastic all year round. To start off, Paul heads offshore with wife, Christy and son Jet trolling live baits including Shad, Rainbow Runner and Flying fish and it isn't long before they hook into some big Spanish Mackerel followed by a hard fighting Oceanic White Tip Shark for Paul. Day 2 and Paul and Jet head out again for a short lure fishing session while they are waiting for the tide to turn and Jet lands a huge Needlefish or Longtom as they are often known as. They then set about doing some deep dropping, fishing at 350M with baits and Paul is soon rewarded with a stunning Snake Mackerel, an incredible and truly prehistoric looking fish. Always keen to try new things, Paul also has an exciting  session on jet ski, where his guide Taylor stealthily navigates to the edge of a reef where there's plenty of bait fish activity before Paul starts throwing poppers and it isn't long before he gets a powerful Giant Trevally on which is shortly followed by a big Red Bass, another of the reef's main predators. In the last session of this episode, they head out offshore again looking for some bigger species and soon get a lovely Mahi Mahi before finding a big shoal of Yellowfin Tuna. This all action show just shows how incredible the fishing on the Fiji paradise that is Namuto Island truly is. To watch just login or register

Paul is with Charlotte Klose in this episode and they take an overnight charter boat out of Cullen Bay, Darwin in the Northern Territory looking for some big reef fish and in particular, Nannygai. These stunning fish can grow up to 13kg and prefer reefs and structure at depth so the guys are fishing  in around 60m today using soft plastic jigs and squid baits. After seeing some good looking shapes on the sounder, they drop their lines and are soon into Nannygai.  After catching some nice ones in the darkness, they retreat to their cabins and make an early start in the morning, but their plans are thwarted by sharks as any fish they hook are quickly attacked by pack of sharks. Moving to a new location, Charlotte quickly lands a beautiful looking and highly prized Red Emporer fish and soon after Paul gets in on the action too. To watch just login or register

Paul and Jet are at one of Australia's most incredible natural sites, Horizontal Falls which is a saltwater waterfall created by the strong tides. This remote area of Australia in the Kimberley region is home to some spectacular angling possibilities as Paul and Jet find out as they catch fish literally 1 min after stepping off their helicopter on a flat. They are fishing a 'blue hole' which is formed when the tide falls back and leaves a bath shaped hole full of fish including Mangrove Jacks and Queenfish. With the water being so clear in this hole, Paul and Jet can literally pick out fish they want to catch and put their baits right on the fish's nose. This has to be the ultimate fishing hole so if you ever find yourself visiting Horizontal Falls be sure to pack your fishing gear! To watch, login or register

Paul and son, Jet are in Port Stephens, New South Wales and head offhore to fish for Black Marlin, one of the larger Marlin species that can grow to over 1500lbs. Port Stephens was actually the first place on the New South Wales coastline that a Marlin was caught way back in 1910, and is now a renowned area for targeting these incredible game fish. Its an early start as first they need to catch some fresh bait and are soon filling with livewell with some Slimy Mackerel. When they reach the target area some 28km offshore, they get out the strip teasers to try and pull the Marlin in to their trolling lures. It isn't long before Jet hooks into a nice 50KG fish and the youngster has a real battle on his hands. Next its dad's turn to hook up to a bigger fish which has the guys in some trouble as it runs into another line. They then head out to a FAD, a Fish Aggregation Device and find a schoal of Dolphin Fish (Mahi Mahi) which provide more great sport. Watch this thrilling episode and you'll see why Port Stephens has such a reputation for great marlin fishing. To watch just login or register

Something different this episode as Paul Worsteling heads to Wyangala Dam in the heart of New South Wales for some Carp fishing on the fly. Its pretty windy so after finding a sheltered bay, Paul and guide, Ken Smith patrol the shore and start stalking cruising carp. These European Carp aren't particularly welcome in Australia to say the least. Brought here in the 1850's they have infiltrated many river systems and can account for up to 70% of the biomass in some rivers and are therefore dramatically affecting stocks of native species. Both Common Carp and Mirror Carp reside here and sight fishing for them in shallow water is the preferred tactic, plus they put up quite a scrap on a fly rod. The Carp fishing at Wyangala Dam is great so if you live down under, make the most of it whilst these fish are still around as there are many efforts underway to rid the waterways of this invasive species.

Paul is fishing in Western Port a deepwater port around 60 km from Melbourne and he's meeting up with Instagrammers, the Bent Rod Squad in search of Yellowtail Kingfish. Its an early start as the guys first have to fill the livewell with some bait fish before heading out on to a sandbank to catch some squid. As they head further out to find Kingfish they notice some sea birds working the water and can't resist seeing what's there which is huge shoal of Australian Salmon. Its simply too good an opportunity to pass up so they start throwing stick baits into the frenzy and soon hook into some hard fighting salmon. Can they find a Kingfish or will the salmon prove too much of a distraction? As you'll see the fishing in Western Port is simply amazing. Just login or register to watch

The Return - A Sardine Story features an amazing phenomenon that occurs every winter along the shore of Kwazulu Natal in South Africa, huge schools of sardines migrate northwards from the cooler waters of the Cape and with them come whales, dolphins, sharks and other large predatory gamefish. Which of course means for any keen angler, there is some fantastic sport to be had. This is the only place in the world where the large schools of sardines can be netted on to the beach and the locals make the most of this whilst they can. The fish at the back of the nets get crushed, releasing blood and oils which attract the sharks in large numbers, this provides even more fun and excitement for any daring beach angler.

The Island
24:11 
The team are in the Seychelles, just off the world renowned fishing hot spot, Alphonse Island and Inside Angling host, Craig Thomassen has barely got his fly line out amongst the teasers before a Sailfish has come to play. This one doesn't stick but Sailfish aren't the only pelagic species around and Craig soon has the lighting fast, powerful Wahoo to contend with. These smash and grab merchants are rarely caught on fly gear but the waters are rich with them here and the teasers soon pull the Wahoo in. After landing a couple on the fly rod, Craig switches to a light spin rod and a stick bait with almost immediate effect. Hooking into the sailfish is proving more of a struggle though, but Craig perseveres and is rewarded with an epic fight on his 3rd day in Alphonse Island. To watch, just login or register

Opening day of the Salmon season on Buoy 10 fishery, Astoria, at the mouth of the Columbia River, is one of the most exciting days of the year and certainly one of host Cody Herman's red letter days. A million Chinook and Coho will pass through over the next month and it's almost impossible not to catch. This year there is a fairly strong ebb tide so Cody finds a shallow spot and trolls with the current. He and buddies Jarod Higginbotham and Marty Carlson are fishing 2 rods each, so create as big a spread off the boat as possible. They're using an anchovy deadbait combined with spinners and bright feathered lures. But it seems that the tide is not behaving itself and the algae bloom is bigger than it should be.... surely they are not going to blank? To watch this video now, go to Fishing TV and register.

In the 1920's, when netting was banned in the local bay, the fishermen of Pacific City, Oregon switched to surf launched dory boats. They thrived as the commercial fishing fleet until superseded by larger factory style vessels but the tradition has continued and now a handful of dorymen offer their services to sports fishermen. Day One Outdoors host Cody Herman spends a day on the dory of Mike Laverty, who as you would expect  has intimate knowledge of all the marques in the area. They start by targeting bottom feeding fish and immediately land some Lingcod and a few Black Sea Bass, but Mike keeps them on the move and they step up to bigger gear when he puts them on a good Halibut spot.

In Winter when the  Steelhead are still migrating and moving up river, it's difficult to know exactly where to find them. In conditions like this host Cody Herman recommends a couple of techniques 'Side Drifting' where 3 rods cast from the same side of the boat, cover as much water as possible. He's been fishing with his buddies father and son Jack and Brandon Glass for years and they have this down to a fine art. They then switch to 'Bobber Dogging', trotting a float and rig combination downstream on the current. Both techniques prove very effective and at each stage Cody talks us through his rod, reel, line and terminal tackle selection and shows how best to use them.

Kokanee are closely related to the Sockeye Salmon. The main difference is that they are non-migratory and spend their whole lives in freshwater, they are also much smaller only growing to around 12". Yale Reservoir in Washington state is full of them, so host Cody Herman teams up with local guide Cameron Black to take us through the basics of how to target Kokanee. He explains rod and reel choice and how to adapt your bait and terminal tackle to suit the conditions found on the day.

Anchor fishing is a very effective way of targeting Salmon and Steelhead as they migrate upstream. In this double length special, host Cody Herman takes us through all the thought processes involved in successfully selecting the right 'structure' or 'bottleneck' near which to anchor up and how to do so safely and effectively. He also gives a comprehensive run through all aspects of boat management, from how to get your boat off the trailer and into the water, once you've arrived at the ramp to using a drift sock to keep the boat straight.

Cody Herman and the Day One team continue their winter trip, fishing for Steelhead on the Clearwater River in Idaho. Not surprisingly, on the second day, they decide that they will revisit the spots and use the same tactics that had worked on the day before. As the water is so cold, once the sun is up they find loads of fish basking in the shallows, its hard work tempting tempting them to bite, but very rewarding when they do.

Host Cody Herman and the Day One team head off on a winter trip to the Clearwater River in Idaho, looking for Steelhead. Choosing exactly where to fish is always the most important decision of the day and the guys are surprised to find that a spot where an outlet pipe bringing in much warmer water, has no one else fishing, can it be legit? It sure is. They try an assortment of techniques from the boat including bobber doggin' and side drifting. As always Cody carefully talks us through his tactics and choice of lures so we know exactly what's going on every step of the way.

The Tiger Musky is a hybrid cross of the Northern Pike and the Muskellunge, normally sterile they are used to control fish numbers in certain lakes. As a lean, mean predator they put up a tremendous fight and for host Cody Herman it is one of his bucket list species. He teams up with tournament buddy Josh Marthaller and they gradually come to realise why the Tiger Musky has the nickname, 'Fish of 10,000 casts'. During sessions on Mayfield and Merlin Lakes, Washington they vow not to be beaten and constantly change lures and tactics in order to hook at least one. Register or Login now to watch this show

Host Cody Herman admits that he hasn't been Walleye fishing for quite some time. So he relishes the chance to do so on Banks Lake, Washington. It's a water that he doesn't know, so he hooks up with local guide Jordan Osborn and Jarod Higginbotham from Yakima Bait Co. It gives Cody a great opportunity to explain how he assesses a new water, in particular looking at the contours on the bottom to find an area where the fish are likely to be feeding.

He starts on the estuary of the river Petrohué, which has a tidal drop of 18 feet and he's trolling spoons and lures.
