Show #1
Diamond Jigging Giant LI Sound Bluefish:
This 2010 debut show is a beauty! This trip aboard the Capt. James Joseph from Huntington was open to our Message Board members and 40 of the showed up so they could fish on this TV show. This was filmed towards the end of October 2009, we pursue giant LI Sound Blues on the diamond jigs. We shot this a day or two after a huge Noreaster came through and on the full moon as well. The bunker had left the Sound at this point and these giant gorilla blues were looking for the sand eels and we gave them the ol' switcheroo with diamond jigs instead, and boy did they gobble them up. Capt. James & Rich Johnson discuss why the fish were on the jigs, what jigs to use and more importantly what jigs not to use, why they fish here after major storms and why the prefer the full moons up here in contrast to not liking them on the south shore. Lots of great tips and captain conversations as you would expect form The Fishing Line. Order the Home Release Version. The first episode is up, just click the movie projector. Capt.

Show #2
Rigging Eels For Surf Or Boat
: Our second show for 2010 is a terrific one for surfcasters or boaters looking for trophy bass. We shot this episode a couple of years back just waiting for the right time to release it. We did this episode with my friend of 25 years Joe Gullo, a former tackle shop owner, commercial fishermen and trophy bass hunter! Joe's been a speaker at our surf seminars, a guest on our radio & TV shows over the years and this video shows you the detailed step by step process on how to rig and tie eels for big bass the Al Bentsen way, who originated this technique. Sadly Al passed near Christmas in 2009. This DVD has close-ups of the entire process and covers the materials, tools and knots you�ll need to tie these eels for success on huge bass! This show will give and teach you knowledge that will last a lifetime and our local fish monger Artie Hoerning shows us how to take the skin off the eel! Order the Home Release Version.

Show #4
Cleaning & Preparing Your Catch
: Our fourth show of 2010 is one you folks have been asking about for oh so long�years actually! Filmed back in November 2009, we had planned to go blackfishing but gale force winds the day of this filming and days before and after forced us to go to Plan B. So off to the South Shore Fish Market (516-889-0692) in Island Park and my good friend Artie Hoerning helped us out big time. You remember Artie from that terrific Bucktailing Shallow Water Fluke program we did back in 2002. In this Fish Cleaning show, we go over a few different ways to fillet or prepare a flat fish like fluke or founder, a few different ways to do round fish like blackfish or porgies, how to clean striped bass and also how to properly steak fish. This program includes a segment on how to choose the right knife for the job and how to keep your knives sharp. Lots of great close-ups of cleaning fish and sharpening knives. The home release version many of you bought at the boat & outdoor shows this past winter is 45 minutes long with extended clips of the knives segment and sharpening segment and other fish cleanings so order yours now.

Show #5
Jigging Fire Island Bass & Blues Part 1:
Our fifth episode for 2010 is a favorite of mine as we bail giant blues and keeper bass over the rails of the Island Princess in Captree, as we hit the high and rough seas outside Fire Island Inlet. This show was filmed at the end of November 2009 as the �Year of the Sand Eel� was coming to a close. This favorite forage of big bass and blues was thick all around the NY Metro area in 2009 and this trip was no different as they were all through the water column. In this show with captains Nick Manzari and Bryan Sorice, we cover the basics of jigging, a particular secret technique that seems to work only outside Fire Island, the jigs we used, close ups of the bait and the jigs as we show you how to match the hatch. This was a super exciting show as we battled 4 to 6 foot seas and just absolutely hammered fish all trip long with members of The Fishing Line Message Boards that showed up and fished on this TV show.

Show #7
Bucktailing North Shore Fluke:
This episode was very exciting for me as I love shallow water bucktailing anything�fluke especially. These fish fight and run hard in shallow water. This trip aboard the James Joseph 3, the 38 foot sister F/V to the James Joseph party boat (see Show #1) from Huntington shows you how to zero in like clockwork the sand eel hatch and explosion in Long Island Sound every spring about 10 days before Father's Day. Using light freshwater tackle, 10 pound test line and light bucktails�we hammer the fish and explain in detail how it is done so you can follow suit. The juvenile sand eels explode their population and all up on the beach in shallow water of 5 to 8 feet. Even with NY�s ridiculous 21 inch size limit on summer flatties, we had no problem scoring many keeper size fluke for the table and having a blast while doing so. Each year fish over 10 pounds are consistently caught in shallow water with this light tackle technique. With no where to run, the fluke no matter their size run like bluefish across the shallow flats for exciting fluking you never knew about. We�ll explain in detail the sand eel migration, what draws fluke to shallow water, how to bucktail and create your own strike zone in shallow and flat areas, you'll get deleted scenes and catches that didn't make the On Air version and more comedic relief as Capt. Jim Schneider & Rich Johnson discuss why the fish were on the bucktails and more importantly what not to use or do! Lots of great tips and captain conversations as you would expect from The Fishing Line. Order the Home Release VersionThis episode can be viewed by clicking the movie projector.

Show #9
Moriches Bay Triggerfish:
This episode will actually open your eyes as it did mine, as this was a first for me fishing inside Moriches Bay for triggerfish. These tasty delights were more than willing participants in my piscatorial foray for dinner. I fished with Gary Grunseich of Silly Lily Fishing Station in East Moriches Long Island. We fished the end of the incoming & start of the outgoing tides to wail away on tasty triggers! We�ll cover the tackle and bait for you, a few inside tips about triggerfish and also show you how to correctly clean and fillet the troublesome triggerfish! You'll get deleted scenes, catches and interviews that didn't make the On Air version more importantly what not to use or do!
