In Southern California, the show takes viewers on an uniquely SoCal fishing
experience - kayak fishing in San Diego Bay with guide Jim Sammons (lajollakayakfishing.com). This expansive bay near the Mexican border offers miles of protected waters, along with the ability to tackle a wide variety of species from sand bass, spotted bass, calico bass and halibut to "exotic" species like orangemouth corvina and, believe it or not, bonefish. WFN Reel Road Trip then takes anglers offshore to experience extreme fly fishing for pelagic sharks. Under the tutelage of Conway Bowman (bowmanbluewater.com), anglers learn about fooling these toothy predators on artificial flies, with an emphasis on sustainable catch-and-release.
