Guest Profile

At long last, Justin Tantog checks off two big boxes for us on the show. He’s from Hawaii (Oahu, to be precise), and he is sharing an epic spearfishing story! As a local, Justin has an incredible insight into the kinds of fishing they do on the island, not to mention all the awesome fish they catch. Plus, he is better than Rosetta Stone when it comes to translating mainland fish names to their Hawaiian equivalents. I may still have a little work to do getting the names down, but I know the fish Justin catches when “dunking” and spearfishing are pretty epic. Just like the Oahu spearfishing story he shares in this episode …

Fishing experience

With a fishing pole, Justin’s favorite types of fishing are “dunking” and plugging. Dunking is beach fishing with bait, and plugging is fishing with plugs for giant trevally (GT). But Justin is also proficient with the spear gun, and tells us all about Oahu spear fishing in this episode.
