George Poveromo's World of Saltwater Fishing
ISLAMORADA, FLORIDA KEYS: BACKCOUNTRY MADNESS!
The backcountry waters behind Islamorada in the fabulous Florida Keys are intriguing. One can take in the beautiful natural settings while catching anything from mangrove snapper to giant tarpon, all within relatively shallow water. Aboard his SHALLOW-WATER MARC, a Mako 21 LTS, Poveromo teams up with legendary guide Captain Ron Brack. Leaving from World Wide Sportsman, Brack leads Poveromo toward a small channel paralleling a backcountry island. With a perfect tide, they Power Pole down and pitch baits up current and underneath the mangroves. Snook becomes the reward for the perfect bait presentation. Large lemon sharks soon make their presence known, and the variety fisherman he is, Brack pitches a slab of bait into the channel. He and Poveromo go on to battle large sharks within the tight confines. Afterward, they move on to a grass flat and target sea trout. This episode exemplifies the variety of fishing awaiting for those who venture out back of Islamorada. The Pines & Palms Resort hosted George Poveromo and his production team.
