Ali and Rush hitch up the ABTrailer carrying the new Andros Boatworks 32 to make the haul down to Baja, Mexico to meet with up with their old friend Julio Meza, and fish the diverse Sea of Cortez & Isla Encantada. With a mothership close behind, the guys will work up and down the coast, seeking some of Baja’s prized species.
“Towing a boat through Baja is a true test on equipment and not to be taken lightly”, said Ali Hussainy of Local Knowledge. “That is why we built a trailer from ABTrailers in San Bernadino. They build the best and that is what we need when exploring remote locations”.
Plugging the rugged shoreline with Nomad lures, the boys went in search of “cabrilla” or leopard grouper.
“It really was some incredible fishing and it is a rare treat to have a great fishery all to yourself”, said Capt. Rush Maltz. “The whole trip was epic on every level.”
This trip is too good for just one episode, so Islas Encantadas will be split across two episodes, the first will air on Discovery Channel on Sunday, August 5th and 12 at 8 AM. Don’t miss this incredible next installment of Local Knowledge.
Here is episode 8, Islas Encantadas, which will air August 5th and 12th on the Discovery Channel
Local Knowledge now airs every Sunday on Discovery Channel at 8AM EST/PST. You can catch up on the Season 3 kick off episode and all previous seasons on any Local Knowledge streaming and online source. Its all free and waiting for you.

The show Local Knowledge explores the culture of fishing itself and follows real life characters that spend their lives dedicated to fishing and the outdoors.
Local Knowledge focuses on the differing and often humorous viewpoints of two drastically different fishermen from opposite sides of the country. Ali Hussainy of San Diego, California is the President of BD Outdoors, the largest fishing site on the web. Capt. Rush Maltz is a born and raised Florida fishing guide. Each is a master on their home turf, but the playing fields are leveled as they travel to strange waters to explore and learn new local knowledge.
Follow two friends as they explore both local and exotic fishing destinations in search of a new flavor of local knowledge. They not only dig deep into the fishing aspect, but the food, people and the culture of fishing that permeate a local and make it unique and special. They seek out a new kind of adventure off the beaten path.
