The Reel Animals TV Show
The "Reel Animals TV Show" is our first foray into the wonderful world of television. We have been a staple on Sunday morning radio in the Tampa Bay area going on fice years. We initially launched our venture on WDAE 620 AM as the "Sports Animals Fishing Show." During our tenure on WDAE we gained notoriety as the fishing talk show with an "edge." Over the course of our run on WDAE, we grew our audience to more than 25,000 listeners on a weekly basis.
In 2004, through a connection with our web designer, we were put in contact with WFLA-TV, a Media-General television station in Tampa. Our initial pilot aired in June of that year and was a smashing success with great ratings. After several turbulent months and contract negotiations, we return to the air in March 2006.
We plan on maintaining the "edgy" banter that has made our radio program a success and we'll concentrate on fishing and "catching" fish. On some shows we will feature great charter captains from the areas that we visit and in others, you'll just have to put up with the two of us. Our goal is to make our show educational, but not in a classroom sense. We want to show you lots of action as we battle gamefish in the Gulf of Mexico waters ranging from Speckled Seatrout, to leaping Tarpon to screaming lines with fish you may have never heard of...trying to elude our anglers.
We'll take you underwater to see things from the fish's view and we'll show you tips and Tactics we have learned with more than 40 years experience as certified charter captains. We hope you enjoy our fishing show and please understand that we stress conservation and safety in all of our shows. Most of all, we do this for the fun!
