Saltwater Experience Season 17 Episode 1

Season 17 - Episode 1: Clay Guida Fishing Fighter

In the Season 17 opener of the Saltwater Experience fishing show, veteran captains Rich Tudor and Tom Rowland have a special guest. MMA lightweight professional Clay "The Carpenter" Guida is as passionate about battling sportfish as he is about battling opponents in the octagon. He even has his own Gillz and Thrillz with Guida guide service that includes ... a day on the water — and if you follow Clay on social media, you can't miss his many angling exploits.

Tom, Rich and the "fishing fighter" head to the Middle Keys Channel Flats of the Florida Keys, which is one of the world's most famous and fruitful inshore fishing spots. Together, they battle barracuda, jacks, sharks and other Atlantic giants. If you're new to either the Saltwater Experience or Clay Guida, it won't take you long to see this trio knows their way around the water and is having a great time.
