Gone Fishin': Jimmy Kimmel, Jim Belushi, Huey Lewis & More Star In Outdoor Channel Fly Fishing TV Series, “Buccaneers & Bones”

“Buccaneers & Bones” is an unscripted travelogue about the fly fishing pursuits of an all-star cast as they head to South Andros Island in the Out Islands of the Bahamas to explore the area’s famed saltwater flats. Produced by Orion Entertainment, the seven-episode series is equal parts casting and reeling action on the water and laughter-filled antics off the water.

Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel and entertainer Jim Belushi join veteran cast members – venerable newsman Tom Brokaw (narrator), musician Huey Lewis, Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, fly fishing legend Lefty Kreh, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust Board member Bill Klyn and award-winning author Tom McGuane – in season five of “Buccaneers & Bones,” a popular fly fishing TV series on Outdoor Channel.

The eclectic group from diverse walks of life and professions has one thing in common: a shared passion for the outdoors, especially the sport of fly fishing. While some are angling pros and others novices, the week-long journey inextricably connects them during the trial of the hunt for the perfect fishing spot, the thrill of the catch, and the battle with a worthy opponent – in this case, bonefish – that thrashes at the end of an angler’s line.

“If fishing is a religion, fly fishing is high church.” – Tom Brokaw


“Buccaneers & Bones” doesn’t just chronicle the tales of a band of anglers joined together on the riveting quest for bonefish and mesmeric adventure on the flats in the open seas, the series highlights the effort to preserve nature’s great coastal environments. The show is presented in partnership with the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, an organization made up of anglers and guides seeking to preserve global bonefish, tarpon and permit fisheries through stewardship, research, education and advocacy.


Join the intrepid “Buccaneers & Bones” anglers on their remarkable foray of discovery in the Bahamas. Prepare to be captivated by the tropical landscape. And watch the thrills of the buccaneers’ unique saltwater angling experience, after all, bonefish are giant, powerful fighters.

“Buccaneers & Bones” also captures the real sense of camaraderie among the group as they catch and cook wild crabs, learn how to open conch shells and visit a local Bahamian bar. Kimmel gets an expert casting lesson from Kreh. Kimmel and Belushi catch their very first bonefish. And, during his struggle reeling in his line, Belushi walks off the boat…backwards…straight into the water.

The new season of “Buccaneers & Bones” premieres on Saturday, February 21 at 5:00 p.m. ET as part of Outdoor Channel’s winter/spring programming lineup.
