As a Hawaiiian born and son of a fisherman I had a rod in my hand from my earliest memories. I fished with my father around the world including the Indian Ocean,Hawaii, Bay of Bengal, Gulf of Siam, West Coast USA. As I became older the attraction of fishing in Cabo San Lucas became my dream, I started in the fleet in 1983, moved to the Cape and never looked back.Its been 34 years of hardcore fishing thruout the Baja Peninsula, Sea of Cortez, and the west coast of mainland Mexico Life is good and we are out again tomorrow!
