OC SPEAROS DIRECTOR BRAD THOMPSON

 

In this episode of Spearfactor, I meet with OC Spearos Director Brad Thompson. Brad and I discuss why we think the OC Spearos has such a huge following in the spearfishing community. Their culture of welcoming divers of all experience levels has fostered a climate perfect for learning and growing your knowledge within the sport of spearfishing. He also shares his thoughts on conservation, both with hunting on land and spearfishing in the ocean. I asked him about the goals of the spearfishing club, and how they plan to achieve those goals. One of the goals including using the OC Spearos as a major lobbing group for developing effective conversation efforts in the state of California. Checkout what's going on with the club right here. http://www.ocspearos.org   

On top of being a major influence in spearfishing right here in Southern California, he also started the company Vizi bags, which he turned over to his 14 year old daughter to run. What a cool dad! Vizi Bags are the first and only colored food saving bags. The colored bags make it easy to separate different types of meats and fish, as well as different cuts of meat and fish. Check out Vizi bags at https://www.vizibags.com

We close the podcast by talking about his favorite spearfishing trips. New flash, Baja is at the top of his list. Follow Spearfactor: check us out at www.spearfactor.com for more!
