"Live Bait Chumming" - Key West, Fl
On the Atlantic side of the key chain, in the deep waters of the Gulf Stream, oceanic free swimming (pelagic) species roam over a pretty featureless ocean. In these areas bait congregates around almost any flotsam. When fishing for some of the pelagic, filling the bait well could be the most important part of your day. While only a small percentage of the bait is actually used on the hook, the majority is used in a technique called live bait chumming. The idea being if you could setup your boat as a natural feeding station, you can attract life up the food chain.
Mustad™ Ringed Hooks Versus Standard Hooks
There are some major advantages to the ringed hooks over fishing with standard eyed hooks. Foremost is that when fishing with live bait, especially smaller or more fragile baits like many of the baits you guys fish in the Keys like Pilchards and such, the line attaching to the ring allows the ring and hook eye to act as a pivot point as the bait swims.
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!
Key West Wahoo & Sharks

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

This is the time of year that we spend a fair amount of time close to the edge of the reef just off Key West. Most of the inshore water is cold, but the warm offshore waters of the Gulf Stream move in closer.


Sabi Sabi Wildlife Reserve, South Africa
Last year we went on an extended expedition to the Indian Ocean to fish the untouched atolls of the southeastern-most Seychelles Islands. On our way to the Seychelles, we had stopped in Johannesburg South Africa to gather our gear and prepare for the next leg of our "journey". It was there that our friends and hosts, Dean Riphagen and Tom Lewin, owners of Frontier Fly Fishing, introduced us to Rob Wyndham who oversees the Game Preserve called Sabi Sabi.
Good Friends and Fishing Memories
by Christian Goodpaster

As the Action-Craft skiff begins to come on plane across the greenish tinted water, I am thankful I have been blessed for another day of life. Today isn't just another day, today I'm fishing and filming with Jose Wejebe in the Florida Keys. Our quarry; fish and reflections of the past and present. A celebration of the "bro's!"


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.
