Each and every fish caught has a story that involved free diving with a 3-prong on a single breath. As I was scaling fish with my dad, I came across a menpachi with a slice in its body. Holding up the fish, I told my dad that this slice was from an eel that tried to tax @kai_brun menpachi when he was coming up. This batch of fish not only provided food for my 'ohana but priceless memories that are made upon each catch. The whole process from ocean to table allows opportunities of learning and strengthening relationships. To know exactly where your food came from is priceless, especially in this day and age. #caughtnotbought Mahalo @kai_brun for helping me get fish for a family that has been faced with some heavy trials recently in their life. There's no greater feeling than harvesting fish for a good cause. The elements truly work in your favor. A pic of my dad cranking out the scales and gutting process with some occasional finger piercings from the fins. 😂 Mahalo Ke Akua. Mahalo @koa_polu for one WES KAU'I BAG TOO! All amped he was! 😂😂 #'ainapono
