Potential Fishing TV Show Films 'Pilot' in Destin

By  | 

DESTIN An area production company is hoping to make Destin the home of the latest outdoors reality TV show.

Hunting show host, Justin Martin, and his Martin Outdoor Entertainment production company out of Enterprise, Alabama, are teaming up with Destin based businessman Jack Cole to produce a new television show centered around Destin's sport fishing and tourist scene.

Cole became friends with Martin through a mutual friend years ago and recently invited Martin bow fishing for Cobia aboard his 52 foot Hatteras charter boat, Realin' Scripts.

The trip was so successful they started talking about creating the reality fishing show.

Wednesday, Martin and his crew returned to the area to shoot a pilot for the show.

Cole said, "We've got some things I don't want to disclose right now that's gonna be pretty unique. It's gonna be a very good opportunity for Destin and the surrounding areas and every boat here on this harbor and every industry in this harbor."

They'll hope to shop it around to cable networks like the Sportsman channel where Martin's hunting show, The Season with Justin Martin, already airs.
