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.

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.
