A 2015 flashback to the day I met @cod@codywakefield off the coast of Oceanside. This was during that ridiculous El Niño run when the Big Blue Marlin were Local. Cody had been calling for help and we ran over and I jumped in. It took the 4 of us some serious effort to get the 440lbr in the boat. Something I’ll never forget and really planted the seed that something like this was possible out of a small rig. That became the Mission. Less than a month later I had my own Once in a Lifetime Blue Marlin and a wild fish story to go with it.... #LocalBlueMarlin #SomeOnceInALifetimeTypeShit #phenixrods #okumareels #pelagicgear #pelagicworldwide @codywakefield 👊💥

John Kukta with a nice Jig fish. He’s been on the boats for a minute, and is the youngest 77 year old I’ve ever seen. Eats right, works out everyday and can still wind a jig all day. Inspiring is an overused term nowadays, but I heard that quite a few times on the trip regarding John. Cheers John looking forward to fishing with ya again on the upcoming 10 Day.... 💪💪😎 #AgeIsJustANumber #StayingActiveIsWhereItsAt #HealthIsWealth #yellowtail #excelsportfishing #phenixrods #pelagicgear #pelagicworldwide

Gary from Florida comes up to me on the EXCEL with the latest issue of Florida Sport Fishing Magazine and goes “Hey you know this guy with the Wahoo?” I’m like yeah, I know the guy. Pretty funny. 😄 A cool article on the San Diego Long Range Fleet and scene. I’m already looking forward to the Fall Trips and that Chuck & Wind Wahoo fishing... #IKnowAGuy #floridasportfishingmagazine #WhereTheWahooAreAsTallAsYou #wahoo #phenixrods #okumareels #pelagicgear #pelagicworldwide @excelsportfishing @phenixrods @okumafishingusa @pelagicgear pic by @sulliphotoz 🤙🤙

Drop Freezer is packed with plenty of fresh fish for the BBQ. There’s something about catching your own that’s different from just buying it at a store. It means more and there’s a story behind it. Some will never get it and that’s fine. I do. I’ll supply the fresh fish. 🕺 Another Shout Out to @fiv@fivestarfishprocessing and the quick turnaround. Same day service is just the best.... ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 🐟🔥🍺🍻 #caughtnotbought #AsFreshAsItGets #TheBBQis🔥#CantRememberTheLastTimeIBoughtFishOverTheCounter #fivestarfishprocessing #phenixrods #okumareels #pelagicgear #pelagicworldwide @fivestarfishprocessing @kellygleghorn 👊💥

Shout Out to the guys over at @fiv@fivestarfishprocessing So killer to not have to deal with any fish on the direct offload. Especially when it’s 100’s and 100’s of pounds. Straight to the processor filleted and vacuum sealed same day. Always good service... 🤙⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ #fivestarfishprocessing #ZeroHassle #FireUpTheBBQ🐟🔥 #phenixrods #okumareels #pelagicgear #pelagicworldwide @fivestarfishprocessing @excelsportfishing @kellygleghorn

Be wary of falling asleep in the galley. You might wake up with pink fingernails... 😴 💤 🤔 #JustRestingMyEyes #riseandshine #Chillin’InTheGalley #MarkTheShark #excelsportfishing
