Some of you have already seen our video of the Venture Crew doing some Menpachi fishing at night. If you haven't, i'll be listing it again below. Mainly, I want to talk about what is some of the gear we use on the boat at night to help us be more effective and efficient.  Now let's dive right into it! Lights Lighting is hands down the most important thing to have on a boat at night. On the water everything is dark and hard to see what you're doing or where you're going. Rigging your boat with built in waterproof...

The first two suits we designed and released were the Roi & Ono wetsuit. The suits arrived a month or two before the official release so the Venture Crew went on a little dive trip for some suit testing, big fish & good times! We geared up, packed extra monofilament & shafts in search of some big game.   I don't know about you, but before any dive I just can't sleep the night before. Especially knowing that the conditions are nice and that you never know what you'll encounter out in the water on any given dive. So we...

As you get better in fishing and diving you'll start catching a wide variety fish. They'll be longer, wider and hopefully bigger. Eventually you need to start cutting up fish into blocks that you can freeze for later or giveaway to family and friends.  Filleting fish is an art that takes time, consistency and a lot of fish to master the skill. If I felt my knife skills were up to par, this would be an instructional take rather than an informational one. Having the right tools for the right job is essential in any trade, so why not cutting...

Some of the tastiest fish to eat in Hawaii is the goat fish. There's the Kumu (White Saddle goat fish), Moana Kali (Blue goat fish) and Munu (Doublebar goat fish). Each of which are fun to hunt and even better to eat. The preferred size to catch is in the 2 to 4 pound range. They get bigger, but very rare to find. Enjoy!

For years I've had a Penn Spinfisher V 10500 reel sitting on the shelf. It's in perfect working condition and I only used it a few times shore casting. It was spooled with green 50lb test line that looked pretty faded and wanted to put that reel back into use for light trolling and for live bait. So, I ordered 80lb braided line and an adjustable fishing spooler.  While shopping for the fishing spooler there was a bunch to choose from ranging from $20-$50 and I couldn't see myself spending that much for an item that I'd only be using...
