Cruze-aratitravel writter Mike Barish takes us on an adventure in Hawaii to learn about the ancient art of Gyotaku from artist Naoki Hayashi. Mike hops in to his Chevy Cruze and heads down to the ocean to meet Naoki and to do some spearfishing in search of a catch to transform into a work of art.
Gyotaku literally translates to fish rubbing and dates back to the mid-19th century, where fisherman recorded there catch by painting them in sumi ink and pressing them to paper. The resulting artwork is beautiful. Check out the videos!
I love bad movies, but I just haven’t had the desire courage to watch Sharktopus or Mega Shark vs Crocosaurus. Lets face it, shark moves have gone down hill since Jaws in1975. Check out these trailers and tell us what you think!
I took a trip to Islamorada, Florida with family and friends for a fishing extravaganza in June 2010. We fished day and night for Tarpon, Swordfish, Dorado, Permit, and more. In all, we caught 15 different species of fish on the trip. On our third day out, I hooked up with this Permit which re-calibrated my idea of what fighting a fish is. The epic battle took 35 minutes. I instantly knew this fish deserved to be mounted. So that is what I did. Now, I can remember that trip and that epic adventure every time I look at my wall!
Date: June 17, 2010 Weather: Beautiful Species: Permit Size: 45” (50 lbs) Location: Caught on the Atlas Wreck, Islamorada, Florida Keys
My trophy was caught on a 9’ Star rod w/ Fin Nor Offshore Spinning Reel with 30 lb Spectra and a 60 lb fluorocarbon leader tipped with a 7/0 Gamagatsu Octopus Circle Hook.
