DAS BOAT, SEASON 2 | MEATEATER

DAS BOAT, SEASON 2
Introducing MeatEater’s First Original Fishing Series



We couldn’t be more thrilled to be apart of the Off The Grid Studios team that produced the second season of Das Boat for MeatEater, Inc. This project was nothing short of an incredible adventure with an incredible challenge, not to mention the remarkable crew. There were so many people that helped make this series run smoothly, you all know who you are, thank you!

“Last year we jumped into the deep end with MeatEater on a creative endeavor to produce 6 episodes of a show called Das Boat within a considerably tight turnaround timeline. We pushed our team and delivered a respectable season. You can watch it online on MeatEeater’s Youtube channel.

Roughly 9 months ago, we engaged “the team” in the production & collaborative creation of Season II, with sufficient time to exceed our previous season’s show in every way imaginable.

3 months into logistical planning – all of our efforts were confounded by a global catastrophe. Presented with a crossroads, we were left with two options:

Crumble under the weight of uncertainty, the unknown and unsurmountable challenges, and bail … or get the team on the open road, overcome and just kick ass.

We decided on the latter.

Without further adieu, Season 2, Episode 1 is available now on the MeatEater YouTube channel. Check out Das Boat Season II. New episodes premiere every Sunday. We sincerely hope you enjoy the pride of our blood, sweat, and tears during this challenging year.”

DAS BOAT – NEW SERIES FROM THE MEATEATER FISHING DEPT.

DAS BOAT, SERIES
Introducing MeatEater’s First Original Fishing Series



We couldn’t be more thrilled to be apart of the Off The Grid Studios team that produced the new fishing series for MeatEater, Inc. It was a few months of long field days, brutal heat, insane humidity, overheating batteries, a few police officers (love you guys), angry non-Florida country club locals, biting bugs, sleepless nights, boiled peanuts, great memories, wonderful people, breathtaking views, wild nature, and interesting characters.

This project was nothing short of an incredible adventure with a remarkable crew. There were so many people that helped make this series run smoothly, you all know who you are. Thank you!

One boat, five fisheries, ten anglers, 2500 miles…unlimited bad ideas. In this new series, Das Boat, MeatEater revives an old aluminum boat from a backyard in Texas and explores angling opportunities with some of our favorite folks. The first episode of Das Boat aired on August 15th on YouTube and Facebook. New episodes come out every Thursday. Yes, it’s FREE!

GRAY’S SPORTING JOURNAL: LEAD PHOTO // QUALITY IN PARADISE

ZEN AND THE ART OF BLUE TRAVALLIES
Article by: Miles Nolte

It’s great to see this image of a blue trevally as the lead off image for Miles Nolte’s article “Quality in Paradise”. The blue trevally is quickly becoming a favorite of mine to both fish for and to photograph. Robust and feisty, full of colors and patterns, they never disappoint the angler or the camera.

This issue is packed with great articles and impressive essays, it’s not one to be missed.
Be sure to head down to your local shop and grab yourself a copy or better yet, order a subscription, you won’t be disappointed.
