Jose Wejebe
Born in Havana, Cuba in 1958, Jose Wejebe grew up in a politically tumultuous time. Fidel Castro leading the Cuban revolution had just seized power and was imposing communist ways on the country. The new government then began taking land, money and property from some of the families with claims that the property now belongs to the "revolution"...

"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.

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.

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!"


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.

Louisiana Redfish - Red Fishing with Gary Taylor
We did a redfish shoot in February, 2007 out of Slidell, Louisiana where we fished with a guide named Gary Taylor targeting redfish on fly and spin.. Gary has a pretty cool gig where he has a 32' ft Louisiana Skiff, which is a true Louisiana Bayou boat. Gary built a ramp-like trailer into the back of the Louisiana Bayo boat where he winches up and lauches his smaller Hell's Bay skiff. Great time redfishng on fly and spin!

Bait Balls And Dredges
In the deep Southern Gulf of Mexico, huge schools of baitfish gather and with them come the predators that feed on them. When fishing this kind of situation, the only way to attract the sailfish away from the bait pods is to offer them something equally tempting. The dredge is a device that’s trolled behind the boat that looks like a school of bait!
Live Bait Chumming
When fishing for some of the pelagic, filling the bait well with live bait could be the most important part of your day. While only a small percentage of the live 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.
