Our guest this week is FLW Tour Pro Cody Kelley from Conway, Arkansas. An Arkansas native, Cody grew up looking for the next best way to catch more Arkansas bucketmouths. Sometimes that meant studying fishing books from family friends or watching fishing shows. The rest of the time it meant having Mom, Dad, or Grandpa take him out for some Arkansas bass fishing. Even when he went to college, he was still studying bass on the college fishing team. Come graduation day, Cody decided to give the pro circuit a go for one year before getting a “real” job. That was several years ago, and Cody is now an FLW Tour Pro making his home state proud. In this episode, Cody shares one of his early tournament experiences. It was one of those “lightbulb” moments that turned into a “lights out” tournament finish. Plus, we talk about the awesome ways he gives back through the Special Olympics and other great youth events.

Dustin Murray is a National Guard recruiter who hails from the oldest city in the U.S., St. Augustine. With a rich history, numerous attractions, and beautiful beaches, it is a popular destination for many folks. However, to the avid angler it’s the fishing that’s the big draw. Dustin is all about that, and enjoys both inshore and nearshore saltwater fishing in the St. Augustine waters. Yet, when the fishing is that good in a place, it’s rare that you find the boat ramp empty. A little Category 5 hurricane can change all that. Time for some hurricane fishing!

Captain Kevin Cannon from Peacock Bass Adventures grew up in Delaware, but decided it was a fisherman’s life he wanted to lead. So he headed south, all the way to Islamorada in the Florida Keys. It was there that he became an offshore fishing captain and learned to catch all of the big salty species. But after relocating to West Palm Beach, Florida, another fish caught his eye – peacock bass. Captain Kevin traded in the sportfisher for a bay boat, and now guides clients on Florida peacock bass fishing adventures. In this episode, he tells us all about his unique fishery and the exotic species he catches. Plus, he shares some epic fishing adventures that will make you want to head south to play with the peacocks!

When it comes to fishing, Justin Lerner gets around. Having grown up in New Jersey, he headed south to the University of Miami where he got to catch and study swordfish. Plus he worked with the Fish and Wildlife Commission where he got further acquainted with all the Florida fish species. Toss in a year “down under” in Australia, and the list of species Justin has boated gets real impressive. In this episode, we talk about all that, which is pretty epic by itself. But that’s not the main event here. No, for this New Year’s episode, we are going big. Bluefin tuna fishing big.
