RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle
Holy shit man that sounds awesome! Next time you're planning a trip to the pacific coast of Colombia or Mexico, let me know, you're obviously well experienced in this and I really enjoy learning from guys who know what they're doing. I usually go alone and usually don't plan too much, I just show up and see what happens, sometimes it works out well but other times not so much like when I flew to Apartado from Medellin, then took a bus to Necocli to get on a boat to Capurgana (up where el Choco and Antioquia meet, the Darien Gap) only to realize that I missed it and there wasn't another boat for two days so I didn't go. The same thing happened once in Buenaventura, I missed the boat and had to stay there, which despite it's bad reputation, can be a fun city if you're into the Afro-Colombian/Pacific vibe, which it sounds like you are.

This is the type of traveling I want to do more of in the future instead of chasing pussy in bars and clubs.

Moose meat is fucking fantastic Scotian! 95% of the meat I eat here in Estonia is Moose, Roe Buck. I cant barely eat the store baught crap anymore. Congrats on the Moose kill! Have you ever tried Bowhunting? Spearfishing?

How do you blot out your face on the pics?

Another place on my fishing radar is the cape verde islands. Looks to be alot like the pacific of colombia in context to remote off the path fishing adventure. Lots of pelagic species to hunt.

RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle
I tried spear fishing twice but it was random and I wasn't with someone who knew what they were doing. Once in Ocho Rios Jamaica but I didn't see anything and the spear was pretty shitty, did manage to catch a couple of small snappers by hand though. Another time was back home in Nova Scotia, Canada I went diving in a salt water lake with my buddy who is a Navy diver, we didn't see any fish either but did find an oyster bed, which we raided. The scallop diving is really good there too. I have a full dry suit with regulator, fins, etc and am an advanced PADI diver but only have about 40 dives under my belt. Free diving is something I would definitely try out, bow hunting too but I'm going to focus on hunting with a rifle in the near future.

For the photos I just marked them up within photos on the Iphone, there's an edit option, then uploaded them on Tinypic.

RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle
I do not know how succesful I am going to be. I am not a hunter. I have fished a little bit. Nothing other than local ponds and rivers for catfish and stocked trout in winter.

But I am going back to Esttonia in October. I am going to go surf fishing at one or two beaches in Estonia.

I am a complete noob to fishing. But I bought a couple of graphite ugly stik spinning rods that I am having cut up to make some Latvian-rigged travel rods. I also bought a medium 11 ft travel rod that I am going to put about 40 pound braid, a steel leader and a circle hook and fling out as far as I can. There are sharks in the Baltic. I might be wasting my time, but I am going to hit up some beaches with shallow, rocky water for sea trout. And there are two places that I am going to try and go, that have deeper waters, that I can try to cast out with my 11ft pole and try to catch something.

I will post pics on this thread. I am hitting up Saaremaa Island and a beach with deeper waters and high waves called Paldiski.

I will not eat anything from Paldiski. That water is polluted. It used to be a nuclear sub base there.

But I think this will be a good thing to try. I am not investing hundreds of dollars. I am going back to Estonia anyway. Hardly anyone goes fishing there.

I will be fishing in waves on some deserted beach. Having fun.

I like the trail cams because it sort of extends the season to be year round. Checking the cameras off season is an excuse to get into the woods, and its fun to see spotted fawns and stuff in the spring.

RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle
I've never gone hunting but I really enjoyed target shooting and shooting skeet. One day I hope I can get in the hunting when I have a solid crew problem is I know so few men these days that are into hunting, much less in the urban areas, things are completely different in small towns.

One of these days I will get back in the fishing I really used to a lot when I had more free time and I was camping more. I've caught pretty much any freshwater fish and I've also done flyfishing but the thing I've never done that I really want to do at the moment is go deep sea fishing and then cook a really big fish and have some beer. Especially a swordfish or a tuna.

RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle
Hey man. I have pretty much done all the fishing there is. Have a few awards by the state to prove it. If you want a really good salt water experience. Surf fishing, with the right equipment, in Mazatlan in September, can be very rewarding. Fishing is about the correct time of year and place. Sword fish are almost impossible to catch on a rod and real and they are way out there. Tuna is more like hunting fish. If you find the fish and have live bait, it's on. Again...way he fuck out there in the ocean. Not to mention that the fight of a tuna is a straight down fight. They are strong but a bit boring to catch. Marlin....well you have to go and catch one just because...it is very interesting how it is done. Once again more of a hunting expedition on the ocean. To be honest the fisherman is not so involved in the process. He can be replaced by an electric motor)). My best experiences in saltwater have been what I call inshore fishing in Mexico. Rent a captain and a Panga in La Paz Baja. Go July through September. Consult a fish species chart for Cabo and confirm that your target species are in the area that time of year. I recommend targeting Dorado. By far the most fun ocean fish I have ever caught. Good eating as well. Wahoo, stripped marlin, and tuna will be around this time of year also.
Usually inshore fishing is about half a day. In the morning go after the Dorado and you may spot a marlin. If tuna are around there will be chatter on the radio. If they are close enough you can decide to go motor to them. In the late morning your captain may take you to some local spots in the shallow rocky places to catch red snapper. Its where he get his fish for his family. If your captain is super cool he can take you the little mexican beach resorts for drinks. If you choose La Paz and it is high tide he will even drop you off at you hotel by boat. Fish every other day so you dont get exhausted. If you need any telephone numbers or additional info. Just hit me up.

That sounds pretty cool but I've never been down to Mexico which would be an experience. I'm sure they're difficult to catch, swordfish. How much do these excursions end up costing?

Thanks for all the info.

Surf fishing is free. All fishing from the short in mexico dosent require a license. In-shore Panga fishing is about 300usd for half a day +20 for license and +20 for bait. Inshore/Offshore on a cruiser (ocean boat with a cabin) 500+.
Multiday Offshore .... "call for quote"))) Mexico is great, food is good, people are friendly. I have a captain at my disposal in La Paz(Mexican family) and one in Mazatlan(Canadian). I would do La Paz for Panga fishing and Mazatlan for Panga/Surf fishing. La Paz has a better Panga fishing experience but a smaller city. Mazatlan has great surf fishing and is a larger city. Personally I would go to Mazatlan because there is more to do in the city and I have the surfishing setup and lures already. In Mazatlan I would rent a condo a block from the beach where in La Paz I would do the Hotel La Perla on the bay. Good luck out there and bring sunscreen and a sun mask!

RE: Hunting & Fishing Lifestyle
I went fishing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last month and it sucked because the fish weren't biting and the guy who I split the charter with got seasick about two hours into our four hour trip so we had to go back. It was really easy to organize, we just asked the front desk at our resort to recommend a charter and we got the boat with the captain and his helper for $180 USD for the morning. The captain took his time getting out to the better fishing grounds which was over an hour from the marina and we saw other boats getting bites and one had landed a sail fish but by that time, the guy started yakking so bad that we had to go back. Oh well, shit happens sometimes, it was still nice to be on the water. The captain said come back in September when the dorados start biting, which is what I did six years ago when I landed a couple nice ones in the same area.

I went scuba diving in the same week, was told we'd see turtles and manta rays but saw neither which also sucked because the coral reefs were kinda lame but we saw some cool eels and tropical fish. Yet again, another guy got seasick, he was really bad though, puking big time and had to lay down on the boat, I don't WTF is up with these landlubbers, buddy was from Wisconsin lol.

Hopefully I'll be posting some pics of walleye here soon boys!
