Hood Outdoors Featured in Season 2 of Das Boat

Hood Outdoors and Captain Grant Gulley of Rodz N Reelz Charters was fortunate enough to be featured on the the newest season of Das Boat. Das Boat is the MeatEater’s first original series and has become one of the most popular hunting and fishing shows on TV and YouTube.

We had a great time participating in this great concept and working with the DasBoat Crew. All of the fabrication for the boat featured in this show was done and filmed at Hood Outdoors in South Haven.

In the first episode of Season 2, Steve introduces you to the new Das Boat—Dos Boat. After a bumpy start, Steve gets to South Haven, MI, where he recruits the help of local charter captain Grant Gully. Steve, Grant, and a local fabricator put in 10 hours of work getting the boat ready to fish for lake trout in 100 feet of water. With good reason, Grant is somewhat skeptical about the 14 foot, 50-year-old boat’s ability to handle the big water of Lake Michigan.

Luckily, the conditions are perfect allowing them to deep water troll for the native char better known as lake trout. Along the way, they discuss Jon Gary—Steve’s fishing mentor and the original captain of Dos Boat—the young anglers Jon influenced, the decline (and comeback) of the lake trout, and a whole lot more. They might even catch some fish. New episodes every Sunday at 11am MT, subscribe to our channel so you don’t miss out!
