A little background from my fishing experiences include; working on a gill netter fishing from Vancouver to Prince Rupert back and forth along the British Columbia coastline. Then my journey took me from Vancouver BC to Hawaii on a boat in the open ocean. I have also taken a boat from Panama Cannel to Los Seunos, Costa Rica and stopped along the way to many secluded islands visiting with the locals.
