Earlier this month, my son Benjamin and I went on another trip together. This time we went to Galveston Island because I have boats on the mind. I did a little bit of fishing at Fort San Jacinto Historic Point but I did not catching anything. Serendipitously, we did catch the Mardis Gras parade along Seawall Boulevard.
After we got back, I discovered a new reality television series about a family-owned commercial fishing business in Galveston called Big Fish Texas. After watching the first three episodes, I realized that the show must be semi-scripted as everything always seems to work out in the end. In contrast, an older series that I am a couple of episodes into, Fishing with John, is so clearly unscripted that it is funny. You can catch both of these series on Hulu.
