New Video: A Look at the Gulf Oil Spill Through the Eyes of a Sport Fisherman
I want to share with you a just-released, nine-minute video report from popular TV fishing show host Wade Middleton and BoatUS’ Chris Edmonston, who traveled to the Gulf region in May to report on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The trip’s goal was to document the spill’s impact, and do some fishing with Billy Nicholas from the Venice Fishing Lodge.
The video is located here:
I think you will find Wade’s reporting, which is from the sport fisherman’s perspective, informative and heartfelt. Chris offers some great tips for boaters on how to deal with the spill.
As a reminder, www.BoatUS.com/oilspill includes the latest information from government resources, a NOAA Oil Spill Trajectory Map and a unique BoatUS Observation Map that posts reports from boaters on their local areas.
