Louisiana Redfishing with the Holeman Brothers
The best fishing trips sometimes come when you least expect them. I recently heard from a friend about a place tucked away in the Louisiana marsh where the "hot" redfish action would make you glad it wasn't summer. This redfisherman's haven, called Hopedale, was not only home to HUGE redfish during these winter months, but also to a couple of die-hard fishing guides, Travis and Bryan "Bear" Holeman. AKA... The Holeman Brothers!

In Key West, what happens when you mix blood and guts, wahoo and sharks, in the wintertime? Well, down here, we go swimming!

What do Kiteboarding and the Bahamas have in common?
Kiteboarding is a new water-sport that incorporates elements of windsurfing and wakeboarding. Basically a rider uses a kite and the power of the wind to propel themselves across the water on a board similar to a wakeboard. I had been taking lessons for a while with an organization called the Kitehouse out of Key West.
Urban Nature, Banana River Florida
My name is Derek Redwine. After many years of being friends with Jose Wejebe, he recently asked me if my family and I would be interested in doing a fishing show with him. After I picked myself up off the ground, we talked through some ideas. Jose made it clear he really just wanted us to do what we do.

This was very special to us because he wasn't asking us to be a fishing guide, captain, or expert on the river...he was just asking us to be a family and show him how we like to explore the outdoors and pass on our passion on to our child.

Journey to the Galapagos
This year while shooting the shows, the crew and I departed on what would be a trip of a life time to the remote islands of the Galapagos.

These geologically young islands are best known for their pristine natural environment and vast number of endemic species which led to the inception of Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. The islands and their surrounding waters have been protected as a national park and marine sanctuary since the 1960s in an effort to maintain their pristine natural condition.
