We've really been enjoying your reactions to Got Bait? Mahi Madness. Even sailors are watching it! And in Part 2, the fishing action busts loose. The underwater views of these fish are amazing, watching them change color on-screen is a shocker, but even more cool is how the crew tags and releases a load of dolphinfish, to assist researchers studying their migration patterns.

What is Got Bait? 

Which is better for fishing: bait, or lures? This is a question anglers have argued about since the dawn of man. So boats.com editor and fisherman Lenny Rudow decided to answer it through hand-to-hand combat, and the result is an all-new fishing show, Got Bait?

In each 20 minute episode, Lenny and a guest angler (who specializes in a particular species) fish as "Team Lures." Lenny's twin teenaged sons, David and Max go head to head with the grownups as "Team Bait." Along the way they mix in pranks, a fishing quiz or two, some background about each species, and a few tips to help you on your next fishing adventure.

And in case you think this is just a friendly, casual contest, the boys are so confident they can out-fish the adults that they place a wager on each day's outcome—and then do their best to rig the results.
