When cleaning out the freezer this winter I discovered near the bottom that I'd been accumulating yellowtail and AJ fillets, specifically the portions near the tail.  These cuts tend to pile up in the freezer for us because the forward lion (the big premium fillet along the back and shoulder above the belly) gets u...

Freediving has always been a no-brainer for me, but I fell into the competition side by accident.  In retrospect the seeds were all there.  I joined a swim team at age 6, kept it up for over a decade until I burnt out in college, got into spearfishing because I love the water and seafood, then got back into real tr...

This is a fairly simple recipe that takes just a few minutes to prepare.  It's very forgiving and if you're on a boat you can prep the sauce and fresh ingredients in the kitchen before you head out, and just use your day's catch and skip the hot oil and fried ginger.  It works great for any fresh jack fish--yellowt...

This is another pool workout, intended for beginning to intermediate divers.  Again, the intervals and distances can be adjusted to suit your level and training intentions for the day.

How much distance should I be swimming?

Anything is better than nothing when it comes to training, but generally, to get benefit from...

Winter temps mean that our bigger, more glamorous game fish have headed to warmer oceans but shellfish hunting season is in full swing, and despite the colder temps we enjoy some of our best visibility this time of year.  But how do we deal with cooling water and colder air temps?  Easy!  Smart divers know that the...

This is meant to be a strategy overview for freedivers looking to get the most out of lobster season rather than full, exhaustive tutorial.  For information on lobster gear, how to measure a lobster, and Department of Fish and Wildlife license requirements, etc, I recommend visiting the nearest brick and mortar spe...
