Every one of the hawaiian islands has an arid side and then a wet rainy side that's very jungly and lush this is the arid side of kawaii okay we made it to the top of the mountain to the waimea canyon lookout which is like the grand canyon of hawaii we're not going to go up to the top because they want like a five dollar.
Admissions fee and that's we're cheaping out so that's that's how we roll well that was a lovely drive but i think i'm gonna get changed and start cooking some dinner oh so all right guys.
We got fried fish and sesame and peanut oil we've got some white miso some japanese curry some ramen noodles kind of a seared ceviche trigger fish and we have a little bit of chili water to dip our fish in one curry right who wants lemonade.

This is going to take a while i better put the camera down breadfruit looks and tastes like a grapefruit on steroids these things are huge there's half of the bread fruit wow you know sailors used to die from a disease called scurvy when you didn't.
Have enough vitamin c your blood would turn solid and your teeth would fall out it was horrible disease and they found out by eating bread fruit they could keep from dying of scurvy it's good we're eating breadfruit because nathan's got scurvy he just lost a tooth all right we're at the kiki aola boat ramp and uh we're gonna go find her.

Check out the video description for a link to that video well it took all day but i did it i built a spear gun from scratch another beautiful sunset on another beautiful day it's nice to just take it easy today hang around the house and do work on a project this is something i've wanted to.
Do for a while but it gave everyone a chance to slow down a little bit all right guys well i think it's time to make some dinner and i'm gonna cook up some fish all right got some pog passion orange guava from over here all right we got the almaco jack fried.
Up we got the goat fish the squirrel fish uh we got some and we uku some sweet chili mayo sauce here which good with the fried fish but i'm gonna try the uku sashimi fur i don't i like that that's that's yummy yeah ugu's supposed to be one of the.
Best sashimis that is really good i hear steaming goat fish is the best way to do it but i am really tired sweet and fried them up but i have never eaten go fish so i'm excited to try this one tastes okay but the texture is kind of mushy.
Yeah it's a funky texture i don't think i've ever had that with a fish before i wonder if with the steaming it it maintains the texture a little bit better yeah maybe well guys it is crazy late the kids are already to bed and i am getting up very early tomorrow i will see you guys in the morning.
Well good morning guys welcome to another beautiful day here in kauai we're gonna go catch a fish and do some gotaku all right guys i'm here with desmond thane who is not only a great spear fisherman but a highly regarded gyotaku artist and if you guys don't know what gyotaku is it's a japanese art form involving printing fish onto rice.
Paper as gil means fish and taku means like to print on stone and it's kind of the traditional way of mounting your fish for japanese fishermen and uh this uh desmond here is highly regarded here in the islands is being really good at it so we're gonna go out and poke a fish and do a little gyotaku.
Yeah all right first i gotta go squeeze all of this into a wetsuit so desmond took his jet ski about 45 minutes up the coast and we found the spot and chopped in and desmond kind of dove down to look around and i immediately noticed three things one is.
That we were in 72 feet of water which is deeper than i've ever dosed before two the desmond is a much better spear fisherman than i am and three that i could hear whale songs but there wasn't much to see down there so we hop back on the jet ski and desmond had me drag him behind the jet ski and he acted as the fish finder so.
Desmond gives me a signal i jump off the jet ski and we're in 64 feet of water it's the deepest i've ever dove and the way it works it takes me about 30 seconds to swim to the bottom and then i've got to hide in a crack and try to get that big uku to get curious and come close enough to get a shot at he wasn't close enough but i took a.
Crack at him anyways and i was just thrilled to even see him and dive that deep and i ended up being down for a minute 36 seconds i saw the move and i saw the uku there right there's tons of them down there i ended up scaring away the uku but this big school of moose stuck around i ended up diving about a half a dozen times.
Onto this big school of moo and each dive was over 60 feet and around a minute and a half and i got a couple shots but they're all just too far away and finally i had one of my better dives and i get down and i keep my cool i got a nice bit of cover here and i'm hiding behind this coral and if you just sit still.
They'll get curious you can see them they're kind of swimming over really casually and you just kind of let them get closer and boom i get a spear into one and then the spear pulls out i needed to just lunge forward just a foot or two right before i shot and i would have got the barbie improper desmond swam after.
It and tried to recover the fish but uh it didn't work out however he went and showed me how it's done that guy can stay down for well over two minutes and he'll get down on these cracks and just hang out and he ended up shooting some big move absolutely gorgeous fish oh cool i asked desmond what was his like max.
Depth that he could spearfish at and he told me like between 120 to 150 feet underwater and after watching him all day i believe it oh he got another fabulous move eventually the school of move moved off so i towed desmond behind the jet ski a little bit more and he tells me there's an octopus down here in 50 feet of water.
And he sees the tiny little bit of an octopus head sticking out of a crack in 50 feet of water and points to it i dive down there and this is what he saw at 50 feet of water so what you do is you go you poke it with the tip of your spear and this gets them angry and they come out and start gripping onto your hand in the.
Spear and then you got to wrestle them out of their hole and it takes a lot of force i i spent quite a bit of time wrestling this thing out but once you get the octopus to the surface this is where things get weird the way you humanely euthanize an octopus is you bite it between the eyes with your teeth and if you're a rookie like me and don't.
Know what you're doing the octopus starts sticking its tentacles up your nose and in your mouth and you get suction cups and weird places it gets weird but i caught my first octopus and i bit him these are nice fish man look at this and look at the crazy teeth on them these are very good eating fish everyone.
Likes moo and there's my octopus all right so desmond's going to do some gyotaku on my octopus so i'm gonna go ahead and leave it with him and then tomorrow morning we're gonna go ahead and print this thing and make a gyotaku art print from it it's gonna be pretty cool hey desmond thank you so much for.
Taking me that was an absolute blast i had so much fun were you hungry yeah let's go get some ishida market we're headed uh a little bit further down the way get some pokeballs all right let's do it no here we'll try this too oh oh leahey mouise pineapple awesome.
All right guys we're gonna try some poke okay raw fish thank you this is the tsunami poke raw fish a little bit hawaiian a seaweed bit uh tobiko which is a flying fish eggs some sesame oil and then they put.
Just a little bit of brown sugar in there all right thanks desmond i'll see you tomorrow man oh man i'll tell you what that pokey was so good but i am exhausted i'm gonna head home and me and desmond we're gonna meet up early tomorrow and we're gonna do the gyotaku and we're gonna make some.
Art out of those fish hi i am painting nice my professional author sister is working on her new novel if you like victorian era romance check out m.a nichols what what time to go cleans the moo then and then another.
See not too bad for the first time ever filleting a moo using a kitchen knife i found at a rental house well it is an absolutely gorgeous day and it is good to be back with the family and hanging out with the boys on the beach a good day babe yeah glad you're back though i am glad.
To be back oh today is nathan's birthday seven years old oh there we go guys the hawaiian breakfast of champions so good but yes.
Well i got to meet up with desmond this morning and we're going to do a gyotaku print of the octopus we caught yesterday after that i'm going to come back and we're going to celebrate nathan's birthday yay well i love you guys and i will be back in just a little bit.
All right guys i'm back here with desmond and uh we're gonna be doing some fish printing or gyotaku we're just petting some chickens in the meantime that's what we do oh you walked out okay so a lot of people around the islands will send frozen fish to desmond here he run over to the airport pick him up.
And here's somebody's frozen mahi-mahi that they caught and they shipped it to him and he's getting it all prepped and gonna print it i really have to worry about the scales flaking up or anything a little bit okay okay he's making this look easy but let me.
Tell you it is not you're taking a flat piece of paper and putting it onto a 3d object and that how you do that is going to dramatically change the image getting the fin that's the attention to detail right there one two three that is gorgeous that's so cool i'll tell you there is a lot of technique and skill that went.

I do not feel bad for you baby it was a really rainy day the waterfall would be insane you want to play the chicken game again yes left side versus right side all right guys we're driving through poipu beach which is a lot more.
Developed and touristy than the places we've been mostly on this trip but you know if you like those sort of thing there's some great uh beaches here they're just a lot more crowded but the waves can be pretty rough on this side of the island in the wintertime and there's a couple sheltered beaches that are great for.
