Where do I begin? Sorry for not posting for a while as we were filming for another epic HSD show at the Mexican Shootout 2010. Every morning was just like this...wake up from our air conditioned casita to perfect sheet glass with the most amazing sunrises in the world.
Our host of generous sponsors included: Blue Tuna spearfishing, Crows Creations Gaji Lures, Hawaiian Host Chocolates, Hammerhead Spearguns, Hanapaa Hawaii, Hawaii Skin Diver, Kawabanga Custom Spears, Noh's Foods of Hawaii, Pacific Island Music Distribution, Palapas Ventana, Red Sea Ocean Adventures, Riffe International, Sea Sniper, Speargear shop, Sonny Tanabe, and Volcom who donated so many prizes for our divers and boat men.
Gyotaku Artist "Crow" also flew over to provide our divers fish prints of their catches and even colored it on location. Everyone was amazed at the process and quality of his work.
Of course our boatmen are the best! Nono (left), Asvaldo (middle), and Beto (right) were some of the guys who put our divers on the spot. They can spot a marlin a mile away and know each spot without a gps. I've seen so many Ono's here in mexico in the 30-50 lb range and ton's of mahi that blew me away. From pelagics to reef action, this place has it all!
Of course my highlight of my trip was landing one of these....Stripe Marlin which put up an incredible fight. Story to follow later...Muchos Gracias to Tim, Jimena, and Karon Hatler for all their warm hospitality and we are looking forward to seeing you guys next year. Make plans to join us for the 5th annual Mexican shootout next summer.
