Big Updates for the Catch and Cook Competition.

Found out yesterday that Adreno Spearfishing posted my blog about the event (LINK "Sustainable Spearfishing in the Age of Social Media") which put a pretty big smile on my face!

We have some high caliber judges on the panel: Danny Abbruzzese and Todd Fisher. Wow! Even met with Matt Beaudin (Monterey Bay Aquarium exec chef) who will attend if his travel schedule permits. He even wants to try spearfishing!

We keep gaining more sponsors! Check out the photos of some of the main prizes. There are also several custom trophies being made for a few lucky winners.  Two of them are Jack Kim and Dwight Hwang!

Please let me know if you have any questions or hesitations about the event. We want you there. Bring your family and friends! There will be lots of stuff for them to do and prizes they will enjoy!

HUGE THANK YOU to our Premier sponsors: Bamboo Reef Dive Centers, Monterey Bay Kayaks, Omer, Suunto, DiveR, Kai USA, Folktale, Ocean Guardian, Gannet & MBay Freediving.

Another huge thank you to all our sponsors: West Marine, Princeton Tec, Kalletka, Stone Creek Kitchen, Save Our Shores, Portola Hotel and Spa, Kimera, Noob Spearo Podcast, Pelagic, Adreno, Wild Fish, On the Beach, Seventh & Dolores, Big Sur adventures, Osteria Al Mare, Pacific Bowls and Rolls, Jacks, and more!

Personal Thank You's to all the people that have helped me get legs under this thing. I had no idea what it would turn into when I first started this! Matt Mattison, Pat Khul, Rebekah Phillips, Andrew Miller, Adam Helm, Nic Ta, Adam Lester, Isaac Daily, and many more.


REMEMBER TO PAY BEFORE NOVEMBER 1.   You can pay $40 cash or check at Bamboo Reef in Monterey, at Monterey Bay Kayaks or you can mail a check to my attention.  (PM me for address)

HUGE SHOUT OUT TO Monterey Bay Kayaks for being a premier sponsor of the Catch and Cook Competition. They've donated a Pescador Pilot (valued at ~$1,700). The cooking portion of the event will also be held at MBK's Monterey location which is going to be epic! Thank you MBK for the generosity! Make sure to stop by to see their other kayak inventory or spend a weekend exploring Monterey coastline with the fam in one of their rentals!
