Our ‘Silent Friend’ Jeff Rodgers came down to visit from Washington and join me for (3) days of fishing aboard ‘Free Ranger.’ The plan was to hit Catalina, San Clemente Island and Santa Barbara Island to shoot photos and film for a project. The wind had other plans for us so we made adjustments and got to Catalina (joined by Afran Abutin of WARBAITS), Malibu, Palos Verdes, Huntington Beach and Newport Beach to target our favorite fish (calico bass.) These are some of the moving pictures we captured, set to an energetic song: meant to help you feel what we were feeling (Freedom.) 200+ miles. 96 gallons of fuel. 100 fish. Countless memories. Thanks for fishing with me, Jeff – can’t wait to do it again.
