Triple Rig Sheepshead with Kara & Nate on April 18, 2021© Photos Posted by Mark Primo Miller © Hi-Res Source
I got a call from Jessica Morgan about taking some YouTubers out for their first Spearfishing adventure. It was Kara & Nate who had over 2 million subscribers. They started out travelling the world sharing their adventures but when the CoVid Pandemic hit, travel became a problem so they bought a Van and began travelling the USA. Recently they went Snow Skiing for the first time. Now they wanted to Spearfish for the first time. With it being Spring, the Sheepshead were in thick and they are easy targets so I suggested we take a couple boats out to the Triple Rig and let them shoot their first fish. Then we could take them to Horn Island and cook up some of the Sheepshead we shot. I put a message out on the DeepWater Mafia channel to see who might be interested and Ocean Sniper (Tommy Phelps) responded. He was concerned about Safety so the plan was to check their diving skills out in a pool. Jessica lined up the pool at Gulf Coast Divers in Mobile but it became unavailable at the last moment so they diverted to diving at Martin Lake. The visibilty was crap but they were able to check them out for their diving skills. I was thinking they had a Camera man that I could take on my vessel to capture the event, however, they take their own video so there was no camera man. We arrived at the Rig first and setup on the North end. When the Deep Obsession arrived, they went to the extreme South end and setup so we were not able to interact with them as planned and also not able to dive with them. My sons Paul & Luke were onboard as well as Omar Vasquez & Garrett Bible. We loaded up on the Sheepshead and Omar brought his customary delicious Ceviche. When it became time to go to the Island, Ocean Sniper did not want to go so we ended up going on our own. However, the next weekend Kara and Nate went back on my vessel to finish the Island Experience with Omar.
