Searching for Pedro
Searching for Pedro - Charlie has left behind the lakes of New Hampshire with their "Larrys" or Largemouth Bass and he and his wife Angela are on a lovely trip to O'ahu Island in Hawaii. Rather than head out into the beautiful blue Pacific Ocean for some deep sea action, Charlie is determined to catch a Peacock Bass or "Pedro". Hawaii together with Florida are the only two US states where you can find the Peacock Bass, as it is a tropical fish, at home in hot jungle conditions. Charlie has been invited to join Chris Wright fishing in the Wahiawa Freshwater Park, Chris's father Stan appeared on "Lets Go Fishing" a Hawaiian TV show for 11 years and is a larger than live character. He guiding Chris and Charlie on to the fish, but it's odd that Chris is the only one who's lures seem to be working. Surely Charlie hasn't come all this way for nothing?

California Fishing Break
Charlie and the No Offense crew head over to the west coast for a California Fishing Break. And despite the obvious culture clash, they seem to get on with the locals pretty well, especially when helped by copious quantities of beer and the odd rum cocktail. Plenty of time is spent in an assortment of bars and grills. The fishing is a little different to what Charlie is used to, Jeff Overall an archetypal young surfer dude, takes him out Kayak Fishing in Newport Harbour and they catch a few Calico Bass. Then after all the crew have had a go at surfing and all failed to get up on the board, the beach provides a natural place to cast a few lures. Jeff then suggests he and Charlie try spearfishing, snorkelling at Laguna Beach, Charlie thinks its pretty cool, entering the fish's environment and seeing their world.

Its All About the Food
Its All About the Food - Charlie seems to be going through a mid life, existential crisis. He's out on his local lake doing, what by all accounts he likes doing best, casting his Spanky lure at a few Largemough Bass. But he can't seem to find the big ones and doubts seem to be invading his furtive mind. Is this really what it's all about? Well maybe not, maybe Its All About the Food. An evening out with family and friends at the Hanover St Chophouse, eating steak and drinking red wine. Or maybe cooking his favourite summer dish of fried shrimp with garlic. How can a professional angler concentrate, when all these thoughts are keeping him awake at night? To watch this video now, just login or register
Fishing with Wade Boggs
Charlie is in dreamland, as he's spending a day Fishing with Wade Boggs, Boston Red Sox Hall of Famer, with one of the best batting averages ever. Definitely one of Charlie's all time heroes. They're cruising up and down the Charles River through downtown Boston, flicking out a few lures in an attempt to catch some "Larrys". But somehow you get the feeling that the fishing isn't top of the agenda, Charlie's very excited and just wants to talk baseball the whole time and Wade, or The Chicken Man as he is known, is very obliging, with lots of great stories, including the one about how he got his nickname. Luckily the fish do make an appearance and as well as a few Largemouths, Charlie catches a nice Striped Bass. To watch Fishing with Wade Boggs now, just login or register
Weekend at Burnie’s
Cape Cod extends 65 miles into the Atlantic Ocean and covers more than 400 miles of shoreline, so its a "must fish" destination for Charlie Moore. He meets up with local expert Dave Burnie, who was intending to take Charlie a mile or two out to sea to fish for Sea Bass, however its too windy so the guys settle for a session in the bay targeting Striped Bass instead. It's not long before Charlie's lures are doing the business. Obviously the local seafood restaurants have to be sampled as well. To watch this video now, just login or register
The Sonshine State
Looking for a winter break with his son Anthony, host Charlie Moore naturally chooses the sunshine state, Florida. But rather than heading to the obvious attractions such as a theme parks, golf courses or they beach, they naturally opt for a bit of small pond fishing. Dad's don't come much more competitive than the Mad Fisherman, so when Anthony catches twice as many fish as him, he can barely contain the hurt, lure fishing for Largemouth Bass is supposed to be his thing! Still he gets his own back at ping-pong and pool - small consolation. To watch this video now, just login or register
