Hook Shots Season Finale: Sticking It To Hurricane Sandy
By Joe Cermele
The plan prior to October 29th was to wrap up the "Hook Shots" season with a little redfishing in South Carolina, followed by fall striper action in Jersey. Hurricane Sandy changed all of that. The day after the storm, I started shooting snippets of video, and two months later ended up capturing the chaos in my home state, the coming together of anglers in the storm's wakes, and ultimately the long road to getting back on the water to reclaim the season Sandy tried to take away. This was a painful episode to put together, but at the same time one of the the most uplifting I've ever done. I can't tell you how much I appreciate you all tuning in to "Hook Shots." It's been a fun season with a trying end, but "Hook Shots" will be back in early 2013, and I can't wait to see what kind of trouble I get into next year. Thanks again for watching!
