MOST RECENT

Teaching the locals how to catch grouper is easy..... teaching them to release them is a bit more difficult. Most people around here that fish from shore are fishing for food and not necessarily for fun.
I explained to them that these are juvinile groupers.... although more than big enough to eat, if we start taking these fish at this size in the bay...in a few years they'd be gone.....none for your children or grandchildren.

Let the pacific fully engorge you into its endless abyss. Try to understand the environment in order to become one with it. Study all it shows you and put all the pieces of the puzzle together to create the big picture.
My buddy Orlando @katkanphish fully engorged and melted in with the ecosystem.

Really digging this camera, gives me the opportunity to capture rare beach antics like this 😂. Just a lil crab and star chilling together. Very happy to see these beautiful stars making a comeback from the mass die off that happened in the late 90's.

This is what its all about, friendship, camaraderie. Always happy to send an invite to friends who share the same passion. Its very rewarding seeing them hit new water and see them catch some nice fish from my turf. Sharing knowledge, insights and experience is what shapes us up to better people and anglers.
Fish on friends and family !

Props to a great angler @edgarpoe9 for following my lead on using tackle that helps a easier release of a larger calico so it can continue to grow. If that was trebles, it could have been all bad! Inlines FTW! Also notice how he kept the calico wet, so many good methods here. Great job man!

A very special fish for me . One of my big ones from the bite. Another clear example of why fishing single hooks benefits both angler and fish. This fish choked on the Jerk , but did not shed a single drop of blood and was safely released to go and pass on its big fish genes. Unfortunately was caught during a solo sesh , and only decent pic i took. Thats a 170mm bait in the fishes mouth.

Saturday fun.

Just brought my selfie game up like 10 notches lol. Im gonna call it god-sent, compact DSLR with a tripod ! Starting to find myself venturing off to take pics of random things that catch my eye. Really enjoying every detail and moment of my outings, makes me appreciate every small detail mother nature has to offer more and more. Ohhhh, and sorry for the cigarette in my mouth , had completely forgotten about it from the rush.

Catch and release is the way to go! Nice work on the Calico Bass @edgarpoe9

Another stunning big fat bass. Started to use single hooks a couple months ago , and have really been liking them . Almost never hurts a fish bad like trebles. Usually providing less stress and critical damage to the hunt. Respect your catch , practice CPR. 170mm bait for size reference.

Treat your hunt with respect , keep it in its element for pictures , the bigger they get the more fragile they become. Its not considered a good catch for me unless i see it kick back into the depths. Be a Re-spawnsible angler!
