On this podcast we will tiptoe across the smallest creeks, yet submerge ourselves into the vastest seas in search of what makes fisherman feel alive. A romantic yet very real look at the life of being a fisherman. The darkest nights at sea and the back alleys. The ones that got away both upon the water and the land. A brutally honest look into the depths of sport fishing, charter fishing and commercial fishing. Follow host Kenton Geer as he does his best to navigate the world of fishing. Fishing is not always pretty, but it's a beautiful life. Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/kenton-geer/support

    Setting the Benchmark

    Setting the Benchmark

     Captain Chris Donato is the owner and operator of the 37' Merritt by the name of Benchmark based out of kona Hawaii.  Chris not only runs his own charter boat business in Hawaii, but also owns and operates a world class surf resort in Samoa.  Chris tells us the tale of how an unlikely surf trip at a young age forever changed this East coast boys course in life.  We spend a lot of our time talking about Samoas large marlin and surf.  Chris tells us about not only breaking the Samoa record for largest marlin every caught not just once, but twice!  The second time with Samoas first grander marlin.  A record that still stands present day.  Chris is a mans man and someone I'm proud to call my friend.  This was a shorter then normal podcast, but I'm sure we'll be having him back on the show in the future

    All around legend with Video

    Moving forward for season two, all of our in house guest will not only be audio recorded but video recorded as well for Spotify video podcast.  This is the video from our last guest Will Lazenby's Livestream from my YouTube account Kentonocean.  If you've already listened to this podcast you might enjoy putting a face to a voice and if you haven't heard or seen Will in action yet here's a great place to enter into the world of the Vicious Cycle: Whiskey, Women and Water podcast.  Meet Captain Will Lazenby. Commercial fisherman, sport fisherman and all around man's man. Will is the latest guest on the Vicious Cycle: Whiskey, Women and Water podcast. Come have a listen as we follow Will's incredible life from living on a light house to traveling to Vietnam on a ammunition ship during the height of the war. Will has countless amazing stories from living along the Kona coast, both on and off the water. I loved doing this podcast. I didn't have to say much, because Wills stories spoke for himself. The thing I really took away from looking at Will's photo albums after the podcast is that despite the recording going over 3 hours, it probably wouldn't have gotten boring even after 3 days. #fishing #offshore #tunafishing #sportfishing #seafood #hawaii #marlin #marlinfishing #angling #deepseafishing #worldtravel #adventure #memoir

    Further Down The Stream

    Further Down The Stream

    This is the first published Youtube live stream from my channel Kentonocean along with an additional 25 mins of side ranting about life and my thoughts on tuna handling.    Today's guest is Jerry Gillgren a Hilo Hawaii based commercial fisherman who originally hails from California.  Jerry is a wealth of Knowledge on many subjects, but particularly audio and visual.  Jerry has been instrumental in helping improve the overall audio experience and is a key reason I'll be able to expand and improve my content both on this podcast in via YouTube.  Jerry is a very well spoken guest and I think you'll appreciate his honesty about the difficulties that often face charter and commercial fisherman.  As well as anyone who enters into a new field or business.

    Salty Dreams Of Crabs

    Salty Dreams Of Crabs

    The European Green Crab is a troublesome invasive species, that was brought to the United States via the ballast water of shipping vessels. The Green Crab population has become an increasing problem in many areas. Not only causing devastation to many native species such as soft shell clams, but also causing environmental damage such as erosion with their aggressive burrowing. I first met @thatsaltyblonde_ @thevikingdiver and @hybridfishingnhunting in the parking lot of the Hampton River Boat Club in Hampton, New Hampshire. Mere steps from where I painted my first boat bottom nearly 27 years before. A lot has changed around Hampton since I was a teenager, but the biggest change I was interested in witnessing was the Green Crab fishery that has emerged since the time I've been gone. This threesome was more then accommodating taking the children and I aboard their vessel. I felt very honored that they let me witness the inner workings of their fishery. If the invite on the boat wasn't enough they took us in for dinner like family. An absolute great group of people. I invite you to listen for yourself about the fishery and this great cast of characters on the latest Vicious Cycle: Whiskey, Women and Water podcast. Learn all about this fishery, hear about @thevikingdiver favorite bar, about the secretive @hybridfishingnhunting behind the camera and why despite your wild fantasies @thatsaltyblonde_ won't be viewing your unsolicited dick pic you sent her. I really enjoyed my time with these guys and I'm sure you will to. Delve deeper then what you think you know about people by judging a picture. This team is the real deal. #fisherman #fisherwoman #fisherwomen #crabber #crab #crabs #crablegs #crabfishing #green #greencrabs #fish #fishing #deadliestcatch #harvest #grundens #grundensusa #ocean #sustainability #invasivespecies #bait #workflow #dowhatyoulove #newengland #seafood #freshcatch #fishingpodcast #podcast #viciouscyclepodcast #newepisode #newepisodealert

Excellent podcast with great content!

Got to met Kenton Geer and Vicious Cycle at Honokohau marina last week on vacation. Really glad we got to talk and thanks for fresh Yellow Fin! That fish didn’t stand a chance we devoured within the hour. Really enjoying the podcast and we ordered your book! Great content it’s cool to see the progression of the podcast currently on episode 5. Cheers

Amazing Podcast!!!

I listen to a ton of podcasts, and knowing how hard it is to make them sound and feel real and from the heart. Kenton is new to podcasting and manages to bring the reality of the hard blue collar job that is fishing for a living. No matter where you are in the world, if you’re a fisherman, you’re doing a job that feeds the world. Kentons’ podcast is real and and finds a way to feed the brain of the world of fishing to those of us who can’t do what these incredibly dedicated workers do for our lives every day. I’m very fortunate to be a part of the industry, but don’t have the balls or guts or strength to do what they do.
I’m really enjoying the show and highly recommend this podcast to anyone and everyone who eats fish or even likes a good fish tail. Pun intended. There is no exaggeration, like most fishermen, but listening to this I realize why fishermen get so excited by the topic. Mahalo and Aloha to Kenton for keeping it reel, again pun intended, and just putting his whole life out there for criticism. That takes a lot of guts.
Good on ya mate. Great job on the podcast and the book. I just ordered it on Amazon Prime. I can’t wait to read it. So glad that you’re doing so well on your recovery and what an amazing story about your ordeal onboard and your thanks to the Coast Guard does not go unnoticed, I know a few of those “Chris” type guys and they are truly outstanding humans.
Thanks Cap’n K

Another tale to tell🤙

Great podcast glad everything worked out and special shout out to the Coast Guard for the amazing work they do. Fish on as your standing by seems only fitting.
