brettbarley I saw around 15 cobia yesterday. 3 different times I had one swim right up behind the rescue sled on my ski, which was rad to see. I saw a couple monsters that wouldn't eat, and pulled off a nice sized one

Midday, I was up on a plane and spotted this little guy on a sandbar. He didn't spook, and was all over my bucktail

Thankful to come home with some meat, regardless of how much

brettbarley Finally broke my Skunk Streak and brought home a Cobia today! Although on the smaller side, it felt good to stick the gaff in one finally, and it'll feel even better to throw it on the grill

Here's a shot from today's hunting. Can't get any prettier

brettbarley @yadin_nicol and @dillonperillo_ looked at the reports, packed their bags, and bought one-way tickets to Smith’s new home in Portland, Oregon. From there, they trekked down the pacific northwest coast searching for waves and dodging sharks. “Highway 101" shares a glimpse into their journey as they weave down the coastal route drinking coffee and looking for hidden gems along the way.

brettbarley This kid sure does love fish! Well, and anything else that involves the beach

Can't thank @oneill enough for making products to keep your kids safe from the sun and ocean. The Toddler life vest and UV protectant Swim suit make beach days a breeze! #DontGetBurned #PoorSeaMullet

brettbarley Well, another shocker today for me. I did see 6 to 8 Cobia, and a few of them, including one Slob, teased me but I couldn't get any of to bite unfortunately

It was pretty fun watching @whatevercharters (Charter Pictured) absolutely WHACK em though. I saw them on a Quadruple header at one point. 9 fish, five over 50lbs and one that was 82lbs.... Pretty Work Freddy James.

brettbarley When the waves are down, it turns into a fishing machine.... Except when you're trying to sight cast, and it's cloudy all day like today, then it's just a jetski with stuff on it. Haha Skunked

Felt good to be out on the water fishing again though, and excited to try my luck again in the morning

  •   masononeal252 Hey could you tell me what app or program you use to edit your videos? I'm using iMovie right now and it blows @brettbarley 1w
  •   brettbarley @masononeal252 I use Adobe Premiere Pro the most. And Final Cut Pro sometimes. iMovie works pretty well though if you aren't doing tons and tons of editing. 1w
  •   masononeal252 Actually I've been using the iMovie 08 for years and I love it but last night I made a mistake and updated my iMovie to the newest version (which sucks) and I couldn't figure out how to go back to 08 .. I just found out how to redownload iMovie 08 though so I'm stoked !! Thanks for your advice anyways ...Eventually I want to step it up to Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere 1w
  •   brettbarley @masononeal252 ya the older iMovie is WAY better for sure (interface wise). 1w

brettbarley @nicolalugo was the pretty much the only person shooting from the water during the XXL Swell Mexico endured last week. He was able to secure a spot on the back of a friends jetski, and shoot away for 3 days of very large Pacific Surf

@sixmagazine currently has an online Feature from the swell of myself, @petemendia @corylopez @b_conley_c_life @tylerlarronde @kellenellison @whoisjob @shanedorian & @bruceirons_

brettbarley Jetskis are fun until one crosses you're path... I got bucked off my board trying to stand up, when I collided against someones wake coming up the face. My 6'4" ghost rode down into oblivion
