In my last post I described our relationship with a hard working guide on the docks of Hawks Cay Resort named Capt Jeff Malone. We filmed a great episode on Baby Tarpon with Jeff directly after Hurricane Irma passed over the Florida Keys and he is back in our 3rd episode of our 13th season. To say that he is back for another show is not exactly correct. I guess it would be more accurate to say that he never left.
We met Jeff with our film entourage at the marker outside of Safety Harbor. From there, Jeff took us to a place to catch bait and baby tarpon. Soon, we had caught both and were at the Long Key Bridge catching a few more Tarpon, Yellow Jacks and Giant Jack Crevalle. (See that episode by clicking here)
Sometimes (rarely), filming a show is just this easy. The weather is nice, the bait plentiful and lots of the species that we are after are hungry and ready to play ball. We had this show wrapped up before noon and still had alot of time to work on another.
FIRST PERMIT AFTER IRMA. THESE FISH ALSO ARE SURVIVORS. HEALTHY AND HAPPY AS THE WATER CLEARS
