Red Sea Goes Etec

Like many others, I am always looking, researching, craiglisting, for the best deals in town. Especially during this tough economy it's important to do your homework in making those big decisions.  When it came down to finding a new motor for putting us on the spot, there was no question...
A big mahalo to our new sponsor, Bayside Marine Service for repowering our Red Sea Boat with the fuel efficient Envirude E-tec outboard motor.  After over 30+ years of sucking gas and having a empty pocket at the end of the day we are looking forward to using the hottest engine on the market today!  If you are interested in the Evinrude E-tech motors, call Paul at 247-1202 and he will hook you up!

Hammerhead Spearguns Dive

Saint Patrick's Day was pretty productive as Kevin Sakuda of Hammerhead Spearguns invited Kurt Chambers, James Oshiro, and myself for a day trip to Molokai.  The winds were variable and no swells in sight so we made the 2 hour ride over pretty easy.  Reef action was the call with a mix bag of goats, uhus, mus, jacks, and even a few bugs.  The water was a little dirty for filming but got a few shots anyways.  Weather looking a little windy with small surf for the remaining half of the week into next week so I better start working on some trips.

KGMB9 Dive

The world has seen the Navy ship run a ground about a month ago but no one has seen the impact to the ocean floor until today.  Kirby Fukunaga made the top story on KGMB 9 News as he shared his views on what he saw on his last dive.  Tagging along was Ryo Kubota from Surfrider Foundation and myself.  Check out the full story on http://kgmb9.com/main/content/view/15031/40/
Later we decided to go deep and look for dinner.  Not even 2 minutes into my first dive I spotted this Kumu in this hole.  I took a second look at the fish thinking it was a mirage until I focused through my tinted lens of my sporasub mask and noticed this was not imaginary.  I speared it with my 90 cm. Riffe Eurogun and the rest was history.  It weighed in about 3.8 lbs.  and tonight my family is eating good:)
