The show Local Knowledge explores the culture of fishing itself and follows real life characters that spend their lives dedicated to fishing and the outdoors.
Local Knowledge focuses on the differing and often humorous viewpoints of two drastically different fishermen from opposite sides of the country. Ali Hussainy of San Diego, California is the President of BD Outdoors, the largest fishing site on the web. Capt. Rush Maltz is a born and raised Florida Keys fishing guide. Each is a master on their home turf, but the playing fields are leveled as they travel to strange waters to explore and learn new local knowledge.
Follow two friends as they explore both local and exotic fishing destinations in search of a new flavor of local knowledge. They not only dig deep into the fishing aspect, but the food, people and the culture of fishing that permeate a local and make it unique and special. They seek out a new kind of adventure off the beaten path.
Season Two kicks off on Destination America with a great episode filmed around the quest for “Elvis”, the elusive swordfish that is so hard to catch on hook and line in Southern California. Ali and Rush have caught them in the Keys, but now Rush flies to the West coast with the secret bait and they attempt to catch a day-time sword on the deep drop.
They even take a ride on the well-known sword harpoon boat, Piliki, in their search for knowledge. You can see the latest episode of Local Knowledge here or on your favorite TV channels, apps and devices.
