New ESPN fishing show puts big focus on the Keys

New ESPN fishing show puts big focus on the Keys
'Spanish Fly' Wejebe is the host
I really love seeing our beautiful Florida Keys featured in the mainstream media, and Wejebe is a really entertaining and knowledgeable host.
Sometimes we as locals become anaesthetised to what is in our own backyards.
I saw this article in this morning:

"New ESPN fishing show puts big focus on the Keys
Anglers who love to competitively fish -- or at least watch the best of the best compete -- can get their fill into June.
This Sunday, ESPN Outdoors' Saltwater Series debuts at 8:30 a.m. It's a look back at the Saltwater Series that debuted last year and had four of its six events in the Keys.
There will be six original episodes airing, with six encore presentations. The first, the one airing Sunday, is the Redbone Series Baybone Celebrity Tournament that took place in Key Largo. It features baseball hall-of-famer Wade Boggs doing what he loves doing best when not involved in baseball -- flats fishing.
The Outdoors' Saltwater Series will be hosted by the Keys’ very own Jose Wejebe, known as The Spanish Fly and host of the TV show of the same name on ESPN2.
The rest of the schedule:
April 12: The S.L.A.M. (Southernmost Light Tackle Anglers Masters) Celebrity Tournament, which targeted tarpon, bonefish and permit off Key West.
April 19: The Lowcountry Red Trout Celebrity Classic targeting redfish and sea trout, in South Carolina.
April 26: Islamorada, the Redbone Celebrity Tournament targeting redfish and bonefish.
May 3: The Savannah Redtrout out of Georgia.
May 10: Islamorada, the Don Gurgiolo Sailfish Classic Redbone @ Large targeting sailfish.
This will also be the first outdoors-related program on ESPN Deportes. The Deportes shows start April 4 at 6 a.m. and airs consecutive Saturdays at the same time. "
