Canada’s“Real Fishing, Izumi Outdoors with Bob Izumi” and  TV crew  were on board this trip filming their show with Hooked On Adventures and our Peacock Bass Fishing Adventures on the Amazon.  What a fun trip it was with all these guys, as well as all their Canadian friends that fished with them, and the father and son duo (The Scotts) from New Mexico.  It was a blast and nice to finally put faces with the names. We had a few from our camp as well helping out with things and working hard to make sure everyone had a great time.  We certainly had a great group of guys with us this week!

 Again, sandbars are seen in many places, and we are sailing back into shallow waters to fish.
