It’s time to tune in and join host George Gozdz as he takes Reel Time Florida Sportsman on the road. Ride along as the RTFS crew goes from Miami to Amelia Island on the east coast and from Ft. Myers to Crystal River on the west coast as George hooks up with anglers, like you, to film the fourth season of the very popular television show. This season is all about amazing destinations, colorful characters and new techniques.
The premise of the show has always been to connect with anglers from around the state and fish their home waters, making them stars for a day. “It was a dream come true,” said Zach Truong, 16, of Orange City, Florida, when George Gozdz reached out to him as a result of his Instagram post. “I never thought I’d be picked to be on the show. I’ve been watching RTFS since it started online. It’s my favorite fishing show because it’s relevant; they do a lot of the same kind of fishing that I do with my parents.” You can catch Zach in action on episode four.
“Once I was able to forget about the cameras, the day turned into a regular fishing trip,” said Mark Lamacchia, a 28-year-old roofer from Sarasota who will be in episode four. “George was awesome. He was funny and great to be around. There was never a dull moment. We caught snook, jacks, tripletail and sheepshead. It was a great day.”
“To keep our shows improving, we want to bring more to the picture than simply recalling our day’s fishing,” host Gozdz commented. We want to teach you something you didn’t already know with our technique shows, make you want to fish an area with our destination shows and introduce you to an interesting person with our personality shows.
“As I say in each show, post a report or give me a shoutout—I want to fish with you next.”
