Joey and I have been very fortunate to be part of Sweetwater since the very beginning. Over the last three seasons we have been humbled by the show's growing success, but we are also very grateful for the opportunity to be part of so many great fishing adventures across the country.
Though our first few seasons have continually raised the bar, I firmly believe that Season 4 is going to be our best yet- and we kick it off with a striped bass extravaganza that neither Joey or I will soon forget!
Graham's Striper Heaven
We are fortunate to work with some very talented photographers while we are filming, and one of them is Graham Tayloe, who is also an extremely skilled outdoorsman, and intuitive angler.
Graham had been telling Joey and I about the striped bass he had been catching, and we had seen a multitude of photos on his Instagram, so we knew he was legit. So, when the stars aligned and we were able to schedule a trip to come up to the Coosa River to join him, we naturally jumped on the chance.
Without giving too much away, all I can say is that I have never experienced striper fishing even close to the caliber that Graham showed us during this episode. First off, the stripers (and massive hybrids) were much more skeptical and cunning than I had ever though possible with that species of sportfish- and I certainly hadn't been giving them their due credit. Also, it was absolutely incredible the size of the fish we were targeting, and we ultimately able to catch.
Of course, I don't want to get into too much detail because the show will be debuting VERY soon on Waypoint TV and I don't want to spoil it for you. What I will say is that it is some of the most exciting striper footage you likely will ever see, and Im excited for you to see it.
We all at Sweetwater TV have had a blast this year filming for our fourth season, and we hope that the episodes you will be seeing hit Waypoint TV will continue to carry the torch and represent what Sweetwater is truly all about- adventure, outdoors, friendships and family.
