The BIG Fishing Trip...

An epic journey begins. Chris Fischer and the crew of the 72-footer Go Fisch have spent the last seven years traveling the Eastern Pacific in search of great angling opportunities for the TV show Offshore Adventures. Well, Fischer and his team have recently acquired a 126-foot mothership named Ocean (formerly Arctic Eagle) and have a 45-foot Cabo Yachts sportfisherman on deck as her fishing platform. The plan is to spend the next five years traveling the world's ocean in the name of fishing, research, and education.

From Tonga to Thailand, to New Caledonia and beyond, the crew will be both be shooting great footage for the TV show and collecting data for scientists to help get a handle on the state of the world's oceans. You can read a full interview with Fischer about this trip in the April issue of Power & Motoryacht.
