JBO Places second in C4 Vette division, Hampton Corvette Club Show\ Award dedicated to my friend, Woody Landers- RIP

Jim Baugh Outdoors Show Corvette placed second today in the Hampton Corvette Club Car show. We had a great turn out and there some awesome muscle cars there as well. This year we had done a lot of modifications to the show car, new interior, exhaust tips, an a new Vortex intake. While this was a great day, it was sad as well.

I did find out only about an hour ago that my friend and close up magician mentor Woody Landers was killed in a tragic auto accident on Monday. Woody was not only probably one of the best, most talented close up magicians in the country, he was a dedicated Corvette fanatic. Ever since I have known him, since I was about 16 years old, Woody always drove a red Vette convertible, he loved them.
I owe a lot of my early career to Woody, I studied close up magic under him from the time I was16 to about 19 years old. I later would have Woody as a regular guest on my cable entrainment show. Just about anything good that I could do with close up magic, I learned from Woody. This past Sunday for my son Ben's 21'st birthday, sure enough, I preformed the 2 by 4 coin illusion that was one of the routines that Woody invented years ago. I performed that coin illusion in night clubs for over 10 years, it was a fav when I entertained in Atlantic City.
Truthfully, my 10+ year career of close up magic, which paid my way through college, I owe to the teachings of Woody Landers. He simply was the best close up magician I had ever seen, and was known around the world for his incredible talent. When I opened up Jimdini's Magic Room next to the Tabacco Company in Richmond, Woody would regulary appear as one of our entertainers, he was there almost every week. He was the best.

I remember one magic convention I was attending in Washington DC, was foolin round with a new card pass\slight of hand. One magician came up to me and said,"That was incredible, do you by chance know Woody Landers?" Of course I said, Woody was the one who taught it to me years ago!

So Woody, today's JBO Corvette Trophy s dedicated to you, and I know you will enjoy it as much as I. I am sure the Lord has a new C6 Vette waiting for you at the gates. Horrace Bennit will be holding the keys for ya! (For those that may not know, Bennit was Woody's good friend, one of the best slight of hand artist ever to grace a coin and okito box)

My best to Woody's family,

We have just lost one of the greatest close up magicians in the world. He will be truly missed. His talent is something that had to be seen. I am blessed that I saw a lot of it. Will miss him greatly

Happy Birthday To Ben Baugh, 21 Years Old Today!!!

Today my son Ben turns 21 years old! I remember this day 21 years ago like it was yesterday. It was my first child and I was absolutely out of my mind. Never had anything been so exciting and new in my life. It was fun too, the Dr. was a real comedian and we cracked jokes throughout child birth. I don't think mom was to into it, but she did a great job and was rather busy at the time!!
A big congratulations to big Ben. I have posted here some pics of Ben doing what he likes to do while attending West Virginia University- fish, raft, kayak, and jump off big rocks. Ben and his buds are also very much into four wheelin in the West Virginia mountains. His Jeep is still hanging on though, hard to believe. You would not believe how many times the water hose has been used to clean the INSIDE of his vehicle. It is no surprise Ben is so into the outdoors, 19 out of his 21 years he grew up on our show. I remember taking Ben rafting on the New River when he was about seven years old, now he fishes it regularly after class. What can I say, lucky to have the best boy in the world. He has just completed his JR year in college and pulled a 4.0 average, and is applying to officer candidate school in the Coast Guard next year. Very proud of ya son. I cant believe how fast these 21 years have gone. Happy birthday Ben, and I will see ya later today!!! Hopefully use that ID of yours before dinner. LOL
Lastly, Happy Mothers Day to everyone!

PS: Please do not try Ben B stunts at home, he is a professional!

Surfs Up!

Cameraman Wayne Baker sent me these pics today he took in front of his town house in Delray Beach Florida. 12 foot surf made for some great surfing, but not so good for boating. We had a storm up here in the mid Atlantic that hovered Sat. and Sun. as well. During the Hampton Boat Show. We had winds of up to 50 knots creating waves off our VA and NC coast in excess of 40 feet high.
Many boats got in big trouble with these seas including one over 160 nautical miles off of Hatteras. Many thanks to our courageous Coast Guard who saved a lot of lives this week. For the complete story click the link below,0,7342374.story?coll=dp-widget-news
This story is a good example of the importance of EPIRB offshore, or anywhere on the water really. I will be shopping for mine this week!!

Be Safe

Downtown Hampton In Water Boat Show is cookin!

Hello Everyone!

Today is Sunday, the second day of the Downtown Hampton in water boat show. We have truly seen some beautiful boats this year and everyone is having a wonderful time. There was fishing seminars put on by a variety of anglers including legendary radio personality Don Lanchaster. Now this show is where dealers as well as individuals come to sell their boats, and display them in water. The Jim Baugh Outdoors Suzuki\Hampton Show boat is not for sale, but we did set up a promotional display and put on a boat cooking seminar. We do this each year, it is a ton of fun, and the people at the show just love it. We of course filmed the segments, and they will be a part of our 2008 program series. For this year, I wanted to try some different things, so I called Betcie and ask her for suggestions. Well, first off she ask if I knew the Kentucky Derby was today. I of course did not, but thought it would be a good idea to do one dish that was in honor of the Derby, as well as a good overall dish for the boat show. I had told Betz about this Shrimp recipe I came up with while I was down in the Keys. I had made an excellent barbecue shrimp dish, and maybe we could do something with that. She suggested to take my basic recipe and add two shots of Kentucky Bourbon, and add three Mint leaves. Well, I thought this was just a fantastic suggestion and soon went of to the ABC store to fetch some Kentucky Bourbon, because that is the one thing that neither myself, or boating friends had on Hand.

We call this recipe barbecued Kentucky Bourbon Shrimp. This stuff was so good, I could not even get a picture of the actual finished dish, the folks on the dock scarfed it up so fast, I thought I was going to lose an arm!
Here is what you do.
Make a foil boat, one that does not leak, (this proved to be a challenge for JB) then place a bunch of large Shrimp wrapped in Bacon inside the foil boat. Add a cup of wine, some Jerk barbecue sauce, as well as regular barbecue sauce to the boat. Then pour in two shots of Bourbon, add the Mint, and you are ready to go. Close up the foil boat, and bake on grill for 35 min at 350. This without question is one of the best dishes you will ever have. One tip that we figured out, (thanks to Mike) is to pre grill the Bacon before you wrap the shrimp. We will for sure do this next time.
The main feature was just a mess of Tile fish and Sea Bass that we simply put into a foil boat and added fresh Parsley, Lemon, and one Beer. You don't have to worry about the alcohol content, because it cooks out during the bake. That is it, very simple, just put on grill and bake at 350 for about 20 min. or so. Now this is a fine way to fix these fish, but I think next year we will try a Cajun fry for the fine folks at the boat show. Tile fish is a great meaty fish that fries fantastic.

Well, I got to get going, we are still doing the show, and I will be cookin up steak skewers for the crowed here in a few minutes. The weather has been fantastic but heavy winds today. I hope it calms down before tomorrow, we are taking a press tour on board for a Suzuki boat trip threw Hampton Roads, and right now there is five foot seas out there, blown 25 knots!!

Hey a big thanks to everyone who came out to the show, and a special thanks to Sean Finnegan my cameraman, Ethil, and of course Betcie for helping me out with the recipes and for being there. We look forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming Hampton Blackbeard Festival!
Make your reservations today!

JUST IN!!!--Jil Carrie!! \ Offshore Monster Tile Fish and Sea Bass, Gonna Be Cooked Up at this Weekends Hampton Boat Show!!!

Today was an exciting offshore day with the Jim Baugh Outdoors Crew on board Captain Jim Brincefeilds Boat the Jil Carrie. Only thing missing was me-Jim Baugh!!! Yeah, I was not there, fractured my right ankle a week ago and it is no go offshore for old JB this week. But that did not stop us from shooting one fantastic show!!!
Heading up the JBO crew was of course my 15 year veteran cameraman Sean Finnegan who also shot some fantastic stills that you can see in this post. GREAT JOB!!!! Also along is long time fishing guest Mr. Mike Wilburn. Mike is an avid fisherman who has appeared on our show for years. Mike is getting ready now for our offshore adventures off of the Hampton Coast for Tuna and Dolphin.
Now this is our second trip out with Captain Jim, and boy what a trip it was!! Just look at these pics, loads of Tile fish and Sea Bass, and many double and triple hook ups. You just cant beat this type of fishing. Dogfish Shark was also plentifully today, although not many people kept these fish to eat. My old friend Dr Jim Wright used to love to keep these fish to eat, I never thought much of them, but then again, Shark is about the only fish I do not like to eat. We miss Old Captain Jim Wright a Lot!!
