Henry's back in the Bahamas and this time he's in deeper waters off Long Island, reef fishing. He's out with guide Bert Adderley, and they're dropping pilchard and squid deadbaits down to the bottom in about 25 feet of water. As they are not targeting one particular species, it's a pot luck kind of day where they are happy to hook whatever may be down there. First up is a beautiful Triggerfish, with amazingly vivid colouring, then a Nassua Grouper, a decent Baracuda and a bright pink Rock Grouper. But the catch of the day is a Black Tip Shark that tests Henry's lightweight tackle to the very limit. There are plenty of tips on how to make the most of a reef or bottom fishing day and chef Brad Townsend shows how to prepare crispy coated, pan fried grouper.
