I survived South Pass
There I was, laying in the bottom of the boat; going through treacherous seas; with a 2-inch goose end on my forehead.

All this learning can be a lot of brainpower and physically demanding so we like to break it up by teaching the new crew how to fish, many have never deep sea fished before. We go through orientation just like the gu

This means we fish hundreds of rivers worth of kings instead of just a run or two heading to a few rivers. This abun
