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.
