CAT ISLAND, BAHAMAS, ON THE TROLL
Poveromo and Trey Rhyne, of Over Under Charters, usually fish together once a year deep in the southeastern Bahamas - and this past spring was no exception. George and Trey returned to the Hawks Nest Resort & Marina on Cat Island in May, to take advantage of the dolphin, tuna and marlin which migrate through these waters each spring. Fast action was anticipated, and they got it , thanks to amazingly abundant schools of large dolphin. These fish were so plentiful, that after enjoying numerous light-tackle fights, the boat was forced to run from them , just to keep the trolling baits in the water! The yellowfin tuna showed, but large sharks made it challenging to boat them. And, as expected, the crew hooks into a blue marlin, only to experience a shocking outcome. This episode vividly illustrates why the Bahamas remain such a red hot, big game destination.

VIRGINIA BEACH - BOTTOM FISH BASH
This episode finds George and his Mako 284, MARC VI, in Virginia Beach, where he and Dr. Ken Neill III head to the edge of the Norfolk Canyon to bottom fish in depths ranging from 450 to nearly 600 feet of water with conventional hand-crank Penn reels. Dr. Neill is one of the pioneers at catching tilefish, wreckfish and grouper at these depths on recreational tackle, and has ignited a now very popular fishery off Virginia Beach. George and Ken work hard at pumping up fish from these depths. A big surprise occurs when large conger eels show up to play! After getting their fill of fishing super deep, George and Ken ease back into traditional vertical jigging along a tower in 125 feet of water. Here, they battle amberjack on almost every drop. Poveromo tops off that sequence by catching an amberjack on a top water plug! Poveromo kept his MARC VI at the Inlet Station Marina and stayed at the Ramada On The Beach in Virginia Beach.

BOAT HARBOUR, BAHAMAS, ADVENTURE
Running his Mako 284, MARC VI, deep into the Bahamas is an annual tradition for Poveromo. And in this episode, he and friend Carl Grassi make the 195-mile run from Palm Beach Inlet to the Abaco Beach Resort & Marina at Boat Harbour - in mid July. While the offshore fishing here slows considerably by mid summer, there are still fish to be caught. During this time, seas are usually flat and most of the fishing boats are gone. In short, you have good weather and the waters all to yourself! George and Carl go on the troll initially, but poor water conditions and lack of action force them to break out their jigging tackle and hit the reefs, where they find plenty of hungry bottom fish and fun! On the crossing back home, and right off the Bahama Bank, two working Frigate birds lead them to big dolphin. This exciting episode showcases just how easy it is to reach the Abacos aboard a mid-size center console, catch fish here even during the off season, and run and gun for dolphin on the way back home!

NEW BERN, NORTH CAROLINA, TOP WATER STRIPERS
North Carolina's Neuse and Trent River systems right outside New Bern - become a shallow water, light tackle playground during the fall and winter. Here, striped bass, red drum, speckled trout, flounder and even largemouth bass gather, and Poveromo and Captain Gary Dubiel team up to have a go at them. Pitching mostly top water Rapala Skitter Walks on light spin tackle, along with some soft plastics, they find action with a mixed bag of southern and northern game fish - all in a very picturesque setting. This episode showcases how to locate these fish within the shallow estuaries, select and work the most effective top water plugs and soft plastics, and the tremendous fishery which exists in this area of North Carolina.

INS AND OUTS OF EVERGLADES CITY
Poveromo and his Mako 2201, Shallow-Water MARC, trailer to Southwest Florida, where he joins up with Charlie Thompson, a "local" with years of fishing experience at Everglades City. George and Charlie first scout out several points, shorelines, and troughs, in pursuit of snook. Pitching live pilchards on light spin tackle, both anglers enjoy fast-paced action with not only snook, but also redfish and seatrout. After getting their fill of inshore fishing, the Shallow-Water MARC finds itself anchored near an offshore wreck, where George and Charlie fish live pilchards near the surface and on bottom. They didn't have to wait long, as the cobia were hungry and aggressive! The Poveromo team stayed at the Ivey House in Everglades City.
