On this Independence Day I am proud to be an American and lucky to be from Kona Hawaii. The base I learned here in Kona has made me the fisherman today. My tradition for the last 25 plus years has been to be in The World Cup Tournament. For the first time in my career I will watch from the sideline. This makes me more humble and appreciative than ever to all my anglers that have put their trust in us all these years. In less than an hour my friends and peers will be fishing in one of the most exciting events of the year in a top contending destination like Kona Hawaii. Good Luck guys my faith goes out to The Kona Boys- On this Independence Day bring home the win to Kona Hawaii USA

Edible art work- fresher than fresh and surgically prepared I imagine the fishing it took and care to get here on this plate. The catching, preparing, and eating brings the art of fishing all together for me – amazing
Visited the Tsukiji Fish market to see the tuna auction. The action and excitement of the area was unreal. For a life long fisherman like me it was really cool to see how the Japanese value the fish and their quality. I saw tuna that were on the market floor that traveled thousands of miles that looked like I caught them on the Northern Lights yesterday. Been a great trip to my family’s home land with my whole family. Look forward to getting home and getting back on the water.
