GEOBASS: Rematch in Papua New Guinea

unnamed (1)Daytona Beach, Fla. – July 17, 2015 – After coming up short in their quest to land the epic black bass in Papua New Guinea last year, the GEOBASS anglers demand a rematch. A rematch they shall have, but the adventure quickly turns in the fishes’ favor when the team encounters a possible hex, a boatload of bananas, snakebites and skies thick with bats. It seems the black bass will triumph once again….or will they?

After a cyclone threatens to derail the trip altogether, the boys have their work cut out for them as they head up river. After receiving permission from the local village chief to fish for the black bass there, the adventurers encounter what they believe to be a local woman placing a curse on them. The curse seems to play out when a local guide brings what appears to be an entire tree’s worth of bananas on board – a definite bad sign for most anglers who subscribe to the superstition bananas are bad luck.Snake bites and a sky full of fruit bats almost convince the guys all hope is lost. Down, but not out, the anglers scrape together everything they’ve got for one last chance at redemption against the Papua New Guinea black bass. Viewers find out whether they came home victorious when Costa’s third episode of season two of GEOBASS premieres July 17 online at

The Papua New Guinea adventure is part of the group’s ongoing around the world quest in search of exotic bass species. Later this year, GEOBASS heads into the last frontiers of Texas for smallies, as well as chasing Red Bass around the Christmas Islands.

“After each of these trips, we have to ask ourselves if the near death experiences, the run ins with the law, battling mosquitos the size of our heads is worth it,” said Brian Jill, GEOBASS angler. “Every single time, the answer is yes. There’s so much out there we still haven’t seen, still haven’t uncovered. Our mission continues until we’ve cracked the code of these exotic bass species around the globe.”
