I wasn’t going to make a post about this because the credit belongs to Jose Wejebe, Derek Redwine, and his son Alden. BUT, it was such an awesome experience that I have to share it with you. Last year, I was invited to run the camera boat for the filming of an episode of “Spanish Fly” that was to be filmed right here on the waters of the Banana River where I guide and fish for fun regularly. What an experience this was! I never knew just what it took to put together a 30 minute TV show. Trust me when I tell you that Mother Nature DOES NOT cooperate when there is a camera on the boat. We could not even get out of the residential canals for the first 2 days because of the wind. Also, Jose, who is a little bit more in shape than I am, poles a flats skiff like its an Olympic event. So for me to keep up with him was quite a chore in itself. To make a long story short, we pulled it off. Many different species of fish were caught, and with the help from Merritt Island native Antanas, we wrapped up the show with a nice over-slot redfish. I had a great time, would do it again in a heartbeat, but I don’t want my own TV show. Too much like work.
