This past weekend was filled with adventure. Saturday was filled with 12 hours of fishing for the 2015 Mahi Derby. The morning was filled with crying reels and the sound of fish hitting the deck. Unfortunately, our biggest bull was only 17.05 lbs. The biggest fish that day was around 24-27 lbs. Although we didn’t win, we had a great time battling the creatures of the deep blue. I took this photo while we were leaving the harbor. The boat belongs to Rufin Jr. Inos.
A minuscule island littered with luscious coconot groves and pine tree forests, Pagan is apart of the unique island chain of the Northern Mariana Islands. Previously inhabited by local families from the southern island of Saipan, they were forced to be evacuated due to the rude awakenings of the northern volcano. Currently, there are a number persons that live on the Northern Mariana Islands Chain that live the stress-free life. This video compiles my last trip to Pagan which was the summer of 2010. I was apart of a research team to conduct a census on certain animals on the island. Currently, the military is interested in turning Pagan into a firing range. After viewing this video, ask yourself if this is what you want Pagan to be used for…. PEACE
