Hook Shots: Louisiana Offshore Odyssey

Venice, Louisiana, is kind of the end of the Earth. It's the last place to grab a beer on the Mississippi River, and it also happens to be the gateway to some of the finest bluewater fishing in the country. Host Joe Cermele is no stranger to the tuna fishing in the Gulf here, but when friend, colleague, and mentor Gerry Bethge wanted to head south to settle a score with a broadbill swordfish, Cermele was happy to be his wingman. Guided by veteran captain Peace Marvel, this crew dabbles in everything from topwater popping to extreme deep-dropping. Sprinkle in a dash of glory, a pinch of heartache, and all the ups and downs between and you've got one hell of an offshore adventure.
