HOOKED UP is a new fishing show featuring host Tom Colicchio, more commonly known for his role as the head judge on Top Chef, as we follow him and his guests on their nautical journey. Tom’s guests and friends are top athletes, famous musicians, as well as TV and movie stars. The fishing is hot, the booze is cold, the conversations are candid, and it all reminds me of a modern-day take on Fishing with John.
In this episode Jane’s Addiction and Satellite Party frontman, Perry Farrel, and his wife Etty Lau join Tom for a day of sailfishing. Farrell shares his views on drugs, prostitution, philanthropy, and the future of Lollapalooza.
HOOKED UP is available on Reserve Channel, an original youtube channel that provides access to some of the most extraordinary and compelling original programming for free!
Chris Jones of Piscatus.net recently posted his review of Spiderwire’s new Ultracast Invisi-Braid line on our forums and I was so impressed with his review that I asked him if I could republish it here in full. Luckily for us, he agreed! When you’re done reading go checkout Piscatus for some mouth dropping photography.
Since the dawn of the superline revolution I have used Fins PRT and Tuf-Line XP exclusively, depending on which one was available in my time of need. Both lines are very reasonably priced, have the right mix of memory and suppleness and have fairly low diameter for their test.

So it came as a surprise to me when I went against the grain a brought home a spool of Spiderwire Ultracast Invisi-Braid to fill the new Stradic CI4. At almost twice the price of Fins and Tuf-Line this stuff had to be great!

My good friend Phil alerted me to this fantastic swordfish tattoo by artist Matt Adamson. It’s difficult to understand the placement of the tattoo from the photos below but it looks to me like the tops of the shoulders, as if the swordfish has gone through the neck. Matt is [...]
This exotic fish may be native to southeast asia, but would you believe there’s one place in the United States where you can catch one right along side a largemouth bass. While they’re most commonly found here in aquariums many misinformed owners don’t realize they can grow up to 40″ [...]
