Last week I had an opportunity to work with Bass2Billfish TV show with Peter Miller. B2B is a nationally televised TV show based on a very cool concept. They take people from out of the state, bring them to Florida get them to enjoy cool things and of course fishing.
This special episode was coordinated by the Jose Wejebe foundation. Peter takes brothers Ryan and Ross fishing in the glades then offshore in the keys.
The first day we ran into the everglades and tried for what ever variety the glades has to offer. The boys ended up catching jacks, sharks, Goliath grouper, and snooks. It was quite a long day running the boat out of Hawk’s Cay to the glades but it was well worth it.
The next day we fished offshore. Though run out was calm but once we go to the fishing grounds where the currents were it was 4 to 6′. It wasn’t pretty and even one of camera guy got sicks looking through the peep hole through out the day.
We followed birds and got into some mahi mahi and a very nice gaffer size one as well. The day ended on a near shore reef where they got broken off a few times on groupers and brought in some small sharks.
Krissy Wejebe, daughter of the late Jose Wejebe who currently is heading the foundation was there to give the kids some cool goodies from the sponsors.
