Florida Blacktip Sharks
In this premiere episode to season five of Fishing the Flats, Host Henry Waszczuk get’s right back into the action fishing for shallow water Blacktip Sharks and hard fighting Permit. First stop is the fishing paradise of Islamorada, Florida, where Henry scans the clear, shallow water for the tell-tale blacktip fins. After quick success, he talks through the specialist gear needed to handle these big powerful predators in shallow water, including the innovative balloon rig float setup used throughout Florida. Next, it’s off to sunny Belize, where fisherman’s favourite permit can be found in huge numbers. Finally, we head over to resident chef Steve Adams to cook up a local Grouper surf ‘n’ turf.
