DESCRIPTION:
(from Smithsonian Channel's press release, March 2018) From the rough waters of the Nile River to the seas surrounding the Seychelles islands in the Indian Ocean, South African naturalist and extreme fisherman Andy Coetzee is embarking on a journey to reel in some of the world's biggest fish - the most elusive, notorious and at times, the strangest creatures in the water. In many of the planet's wildest places, Andy comes face-to-face with the giant swallowing mouths of the Nile perch, the heavyweight power of the Dogtooth Tuna and the razor-sharp teeth of Giant Barracuda. FISHING FOR GIANTS premieres Wednesday, April 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Smithsonian Channel. Never settling for an average day on the water, Andy goes to great lengths to make the most dangerous catches. His all-action fishing style doesn't rely on expensive tackle or hi-tech gadgets. Instead, on FISHING FOR GIANTS, Andy depends on his expert skill and hard work - whether it's free-diving submerged wreckage to face a catch head on, staying calm in crocodile-infested waters on the Nile, or using an old-school wooden-spooled reel, the Scarborough which he calls his 'old-faithful' to bring in these 100-plus-pound giants.
