Buccaneers and Bones – the Trailer

The follow up to Pirates of the Flats, Buccaneers and Bones moves channels and locations and looks to be every bit as interesting.  One of the sites this year is… you guessed it, El Pescador Lodge.


The new show starts DECEMBER 26!  Set your DVR!

A Pirate By Another Name

If you watched Pirates of the Flats last year on ESPN you’ll recognize some of the names… Yvon Chouinard, Tom Brokaw, Michael Keaton and Bill Klyn are all there.  New are Zach Gilford and Lori-Ann Murphy.

A new show is in the works, basically Pirates of the Flats 2, but renamed, expanded and moved from the network  that no longer supports angling, to a network that does… the Outdoor Network.

The cameras are moving from the flats of Abaco to the flats of Florida and Belize and the target species are expanding from bonefish to include permit and tarpon.  The new show films this summer and will broadcast in early 2011.

Once again this will be done in conjunction with the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust, so conservation will be a cornerstone of the program.


This, but a little different.

New Outdoor Channel Show does Belize Bonefish

I caught a recent bonefishy mention regarding Zach Gilford, the Friday Night Lights star and Gus in The River Why.

Turns out he’s working on a show for the Outdoor Channel with Michael Keaton and Tom Brokaw down in Belize… the show is bonefish-centric.

Kind of sounds like Pirates 2.

Whatever it is, I want to see it… see, bonefish are kind of my thing.

Beyond the mention on Chelsea Lately, I don’t see another word about the bonefishing TV project.  I’ll have to ask around.  If you know something, please share.

Pirates Are Here!

Update #1: Pirates are HERE.  Just watched the first episode.  Love it.  Wish it were longer.  Wish I was there.  Still, love it.  Great to see Lefty out there showing Brokaw the ropes.  Neat to see a bonefish being tagged.  Loved to see Abaco and tails… love the tails.  Looking forward to #2.

Original Post

No, not the Seychelles pirates (well, I guess they could be, but that’s not what we’re talking about here).  Pirates of the Flats is set to launch on Dec. 27th.
