In this episode, Capt. Darrin Isaacs talks to Capt. Marty Bates about his recent victory in the 2020 World Cup. The World Cup is a worldwide, winner-take-all shootout held annually on July 4th. Co-founded, back in the day, by Dallas Cowboys GM (1959 - 1989) Tex Schramm and Norman Wood, a Key West businessman. Teams fish their own time zone with lines in at 8:30am , lines out at 4:30pm. This is a a blue marlin tournament. Fish must be over 500lbs to qualify. Common areas that produce winning fish are Kona, Hawaii; Maderia; Bermuda; Gulf of Mexico and Cape Verde. Capt.

PODCAST: Omni Sonar
In this episode, Capt. Darrin Isaacs talks to Capt. James Parker to discuss Furuno's game changing Omni Sonar.
In this episode, I talk to Grant Haugen with Seakeeper and discuss the origin story about how two visionaries, Shep McKenney and John Adams developed a gyro stabilization product that eliminates over 90% of boat roll. I also speak with John Wurtz with USA Yacht Stabilizers which specializes in installing and retrofitting Seakeepers.
In this podcast I catch up with Captain Chris Sanchez about fishing tournaments in Cuba. Chris was on the Barefoot, a 64’ Viking, fishing the 66th Annual Hemingway Tournament and the Gamefish Grande Championship. The Gamefish Grande is a new 2 tournament series run by the folks that produce the BBC (Bahamas Billfish Championship). I have not yet taken a boat to Cuba, so we spend some time talking about the marinas and Cuba in general. If you want to go straight to the fishing, skip to 14:47 and 37:32.
