I found some local Christmas cheer in the Fishermen's Terminal this season on a recent trip thru Ballard. Kudos to the M/V Maximo for going the distance on the Christmas spirit. Happy Holidays!

 

Commercial Fishing Video Of The Day | Ventura Harbor Parade Of Lights 2014


 

Check out this years incredible Parade of Lights in Ventura Harbor this Christmas. The entire harbor village comes together for this cheerful holiday tradition. I know this has been attempted in Alaska, as well. However, we rarely have the pleasant weather that Ventura County does. Anyways, it looks like a ton of fun!

Every Christmas, Ventura Harbor lights up the local harbor with a fantastic parade of lights. Here's a shot of the squid seiner the Ocean Angel III before the big parade. It's a shame, I missed the event by one weekend. I've been so busy traveling and visiting friends for the holidays that I haven't had much internet time. Have yourself a Merry Christmas!

 

Commercial Fishing Video Of The Day | Cali Loligo 2014


 

This is my most recent video from my squid fishing adventure in California. The edit doesn't have too much crew footage, but I have a ton of GoPro 4 data to play around with for another crew remix. The video was shot and edited completely on the iPhone 6 with the new Replay App that was showcased at Macworld this fall. Make sure to wait for the HD To buffer. The lighting effects are best viewed under 1080.

California lobster is in full effect on south coast. These spiny delights were discovered in Ventura Harbor during a recent offload. Sounds like 20 bucks a pound for these whoppers. #eatmoreseafood

The squid season is California is wrapping up after another banner year. This would the the 5th consecutive year that the entire quota of 118,000 tons has been caught early. Even with the El Niño trends, squid still seems to be thriving in the waters off of Caifornia. Here's a nice panorama shot as we were crusing off of Mugu Canyon.
