Season 2, Episode 8


After exploring the Islands off of Maryland, Ben heads to Baltimore where he briefly joins the pirate ship, Fearless, and fishes for white perch and the invasive snakehead. Ben goes out with Captain Don Marani to catch some white perch in the Inner Harbor that he brings over to Joe Lancelotta, the chef at Conrad's Crabs, a well-known local seafood carry out, where they cook up a grilled white perch puttanesca. Next, Ben visits Chad Wells, a fisherman and chef who hunts snakehead, a fish that is required by law to be killed before reaching land, and serves it at his restaurant, Alewife. Ben then becomes obsessed with hunting down a snakehead of his own, going out multiple times to see if he can achieve his goal.
