Tom Rowland takes time to do a LIVE question and answer podcast for the first time. Using Facebook Live, Instagram Live, emailed questions and tweets, Tom answers questions for 2 hours on virtually every subject. From Goliath Grouper regulations, to how to become a fishing guide, Capt. License questions to how to stay in shape on the road, the questions keep flooding in and Tom does his best to answer every one.
This podcast is different from many out there because it is not only about a single subject like fishing. In fact, sometimes we will take on entirely different subjects like Hunting, Outdoor Adventure, Fitness (because everything in your life will be enhanced if you are in better shape...yes, that means that you will catch more fish), Business, Sponsorship, Family and more. This is not a boring 30 minute canned attempt at a "How To" podcast that really would work much better in person, rather, this is an unhurried conversation with the most interesting people in the outdoors.
Ryan Nitz is a 27 year old with a passion for the outdoors that is contagious and immediately obvious to anyone who is fortunate enough to be around him even for a few minutes. For the past few years he has been funding his outdoor addiction with a well paying job in Florida pest control. However, with his growing Instagram profile, he has had many opportunities to turn his passion into his profession.
Derek DeYoung is a renowned fish artist who travels between Montana, Florida Keys (Big Pine) and Northern Michigan to pursue fish and get inspiration to reproduce them on canvas. I caught up with Derek through Instagram and asked him if he would like to be a guest on Saltwater Experience. He said he would like to do it but his schedule was very tight. We found a day and made it happen.
Captains For Clean Water is an environmental organization started by Capt. Daniel Andrews and Capt. Chris Wittman. Today, they are leading the charge to save the Everglades. Daniel was a guide working 280 days a year until his area was affected by runoff from the Caloosahatchee River in the middle of peak tourist season. During this time, he realized that he needed to do something about this issue and within a few days, Captains For Clean Water was born.
Lawson started SEALFit and Unbeatable Mind in May 2013, and by November 2013, he was in a 20X event. This is an intense, 12-hour, nonstop event that will show you you’re capable of 20 times more than you think you can do. This was Lawson’s stepping stone event to the SEALFit Kokoro, a 50 hour event in California which is where he and Rowland’s brotherhood really begins.
