DENVER, Feb. 11 (UPI) -- Jimmy Kimmel, Jim Belushi, Tom Brokaw and Huey Lewis are to appear in the seven-episode fifth season of the fly-fishing TV series Buccaneers & Bones, Outdoor Channel announced Wednesday.

The cast will also include Patagonia founder Yvon Chouinard, fly-fishing legend Lefty Kreh, Bonefish & Tarpon Trust board member Bill Klyn and award-winning author Tom McGuane.


The "unscripted travelogue" will follow its stars as they head to South Andros Island in the Out Islands of the Bahamas to explore the area's famed saltwater flats.

A press release promised Season 5 of the popular series "captures the real sense of camaraderie among the group as they catch and cook wild crabs, learn how to open conch shells and visit a local Bahamian bar.

"Kimmel gets an expert casting lesson from Kreh. Kimmel and Belushi catch their very first bonefish. And, during his struggle reeling in his line, Belushi walks off the boat... backwards... straight into the water."

Season 5 of Buccaneers & Bones is to premiere Feb. 21.
