OUR FIRST SEVEN EPISODES
EPISODE 1 - THE BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS

We'll be taking you to the pristine Caribbean and the British Virgin Islands, specifically Anegada, for some inshore flyfishing for tarpon and bonefish with Kenneth Garfield Faulkner Jr. who has earned his reputation as the island's premier fly fishing guide. Next it's time to slide out with the boys on the "Big Ting" to do some offshore fishing, Caribbean style!

EPISODE 2 - CEBACO BAY, PANAMA
Liking getting away from it all? I mean really, really far away? Then Cebaco Bay off the coast of Panama is right up your alley. This mostly untouched corner or the Eastern Pacific holds big billfish, tuna, dorado and more. Our host, Jim Wiese, has us fishing famous Hannibal Bank near Coiba Island.

EPISODE 3 - CASA A-FIN-ITY, IZTAPA, GUATEMALA
Ah, Guatemala. One of my favorite destinations. Not only is there great fishing to be had, there's also a ton of things to see and do in this central American country filled with Mayan ruins and strong ties to ancient cultures. Often referred to as the "Sailfish Capital of the World" Guatemala simply never disappoints me.

EPISODE 4 - CASA A-FIN-ITY, IZTAPA, GUATEMALA
It's tough to fit all the fun we had in Guatemala in one show so we'll be taking you back to Casa A-fin-ity and the hospitality and fishing expertise that Davis Clapp and his crew bring to the game. What's in store? Lessons in offshore fishing backed up with plenty of bent rods and sore arms!

EPISODE 5 - BAJA'S EAST CAPE
Mexico's Baja Peninsula presents us with so much to see and do that it makes our heads spin. First, driving the length of the Baja with boat in tow we're often stunned by the rugged beauty where the desert meets sea. Next, it's off to the hospitality and undeniable "Old Mexico" feel we find at family owned Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort. The Valdez family makes us happy to be there but sad to leave.

EPISODE 6 - SAN JOSE DEL CABO, BAJA, MEXICO
Used to be that the premier marina in Los Cabos was all the way at the tip of the peninsula in Cabo San Lucas. The Puerto Los Cabos Marina 30 miles up the coast from Cabo pairs great fishing with some of the world's most picturesque golf courses. Add the rustic Colonial charm found in Old Town San Jose del Cabo and you've got the makings of a trip to remember.

EPISODE 7 - DOVE ISLAND, ALASKA
You want to be spoiled rotten while fishing Alaska's bountiful waters? This is the place to do it. Dove Island owners and hosts, Dave and Tracie Lambeth, have carved out a fisherman's dream in the heart of Sitka. Five star accommodations and food are the icing on this cake made up of endless opportunities for viewing native wildlife, world-class fishing with fly-in capabilities.



A PEAK INTO SOME OF THE SEASON'S NEW EPISODES

As fishing destinations go… the finest have ambiance, tranquility, great food, swim-up bars, great fishing and of course other tourist activities as well. Combine all these factors, throw in the most amazing sunrises in the world, and then of course the hospitality of the Valdez family and you have just created Hotel Buena Vista Resort.

The IGFA Anglers Digest crew took the time to drive the entire Baja peninsula to capture the essence of the country, the warmth of its people, to gauge the safety as well as the road conditions and report them to the world.

Host Bill Boyce packed the crew in his trusty Ford F-350 4x4 truck and they made the southerly trek. Over 2,300 miles of Baja were driven over a 13 day journey. Along the way they sampled the flavors and savored the scenery that only the Baja can bring to the senses.

Pulling into the Hotel Buena Vista Resort was like coming home after a long arduous trip. Watch this episode and you too will capture the essence of what Baja is all about. This place is Old Mexico, rustic, raw and unspoiled.

From diving the world famous Cabo Pulmo Reef with Mark Rayor of VISTA SEA SPORT, to site casting for roosters on the beach or trolling for marlin and dorado, this episode has some great moments and some great surprises waiting for you. Tuf Line braid, FOX Rods, Halco Lures, and MOJO sportswear were all put to the test when we fish onshore and offshore in this multi-specie episode.

Marina at Puerto Los Cabos, San Jose del Cabo
Puerto Los Cabos, San Jose del Cabo, Baja

When you hear the words Los Cabos, a majority of the angling public would immediately assume, Cabo San Lucas as the destination in mind. In this episode, we had the good fortune to discover the other Los Cabos that being the Puerto Los Cabos an amazing new modern marina facility just minutes for the Los Cabos / Cabo airport. A 15 minute drive gets you home here in San Jose Del Cabo, and what an amazing vacation spot it is..!!! This amazing location includes world class golf courses, the Puerto Los Cabos Marina, where the Malecon (boardwalk) and nearby art parks are brilliantly surrounded with priceless art pieces from world famous artist. I have never seen any marina in the world that has such flair…!!

Speaking of art, you won’t want to miss the Colonial Spanish architecture of downtown San Jose Del Cabo where the town is filled with amazing art galleries that provide opportunity to buy incredible international art of all kinds. The mission in the center of all this culture was one of the first ever built in Baja by the Spanish Missionaries back in 1691.

But let’s not forget why we came..!! The fishing of course and this episode will give you a great idea of why this area houses some of the most prolific fishing grounds in all of Baja. The infamous Gordo Bank is situated just a few miles offshore, a place know for big, mulit-miilion dollar tournament winning fish. Another productive stretch of coast lies along the stunning beaches and million dollar homes east of the port. We slow troll live baits taking in views of fine homes and golf courses waiting for a hard fighting roosterfish.

Sitka Alaska, Dove Island Lodge

It’s been a long time since I spent a field season as a fisheries biologist on the Tongass National Forest in Southeast Alaska. But it was during that employment that a piece of my heart was permanently left in that corner of the state. There is something about mystic fjords, with thick stands of timber edging the high tide mark, where bald eagles are as common as crows, seen and heard screeching in the air as they search for their next forage opportunity.

in this episode, we join Dove Island Lodge owners, Duane and Tracie Lambeth and their amazing staff of mixologists, world class chefs, and talented fishing guides for a 5 star adventure that ONLY Dove Island Lodge could provide. 5 star dining with 5 course dinners every night courtesy of owners who spare no expense bringing a Napa Valley wine and dine venue to the stunning surroundings – a private island with dramatic views of Sitka.

The fishing… WOW, I almost forgot the fishing! Once you join us, you will never forget it. Taking Duane’s super custom Beaver float plane to points north and south in search of Alaska's finest fishing experiences. We go in search of the ever spooky steelhead with only a few fly rods as our arsenal.

Next, we're ocean bound fishing with guest anglers Stephanie Choate of the Wild Oceans Campaign, and Captain Brett Ryan. Salmon, halibut, rock fish, and black cod are all on our radar, you’ll have to join us to see who shows up hungry. Tune in and be flown away and blown away. It doesn’t get any better than Dove Island!
