Behind the Scenes: Episode 2 of “The Ugly Tour: Uncharted Waters”

“The Ugly Tour: Uncharted Waters” brings Florida peacock bass fishing into focus.

In the second season of Ugly Stik’s “The Ugly Tour: Uncharted Waters,” host Crew Wyard has already spent some time in the redfish capital of the world, and the latest episode brought him to Florida’s canal networks that make up a large portion of the Everglades territory.

Captain Josh Greer was born in Homestead, Florida, so he’s spent some time in these waters. He gave Crew a front row seat for some awesome peacock bass action, unlike anywhere else in the world.

No trip to Florida is really considered complete until you visit a gator farm, and the Everglades Alligator Farm presented a good opportunity to get up close with some of the swamp’s biggest inhabitants.
