Reel Time Florida Sportsman combines the interactivity of the FS community with a professionally produced television series. Host, Capt. George Gozdz reviews the hottest action in the state, from fishing reports on the Florida Sportsman website and Forum, and plans his trips accordingly, fishing with “Reel” anglers in their hometown waters. RTFS airs on both Sportsman Channel nationally and Fox Sun Sports in Florida.

Florida Sportsman Best Boat host Dave East and Rick Ryals will help viewers decide what’s the “Best Boat” for them. “The best boat for me may not be the best boat for you, it completely depends on what you plan on doing with the boat—how you plan on using it,” explains host Dave East. FSBB uses 13 episodes to showcase the most popular fishing and boating activities in the state and then uses participating boat companies to showcase the best category and class of boat to determine the “Best Boat” for the job.

Building on what started 30 years ago with Florida Sportsman’s first installment of One Man’s Dreamboat – a popular series of articles in the magazine featuring readers and their custom boat projects – Florida Sportsman has teamed up with Marine Customs Unlimited in Stuart, FL to bring the pages of the magazine to life. Join the crew from MCU for boat restorations, custom rigging, budgets, and watch boating dreams, become reality. FSPD airs both nationally on World Fishing Network and regionally on Fox Sun Sports.
