Amazing photo by @davehammack of what the reality of our oceans look like! I’m sure most of you have heard of the “Great Pacific Garbage Patch” in the North Pacific Ocean, but do you know the differences between the myths vs. facts? A common myth of the garbage patch is that it is solely a large mass that you can walk across, or even land a plane on top of; this is very far from the truth. The garbage patch is actually an accumulation of ~1.9 million bits per square mile of debris from plastic bags, bottle caps, plastic bottles, and Styrofoam that have not/ will not ever fully decompose (easiest to image the garbage patch as a giant bowl of plastic soup). These millions of bits of debris are estimated to cover a space larger than 1.5 times the size of the United Sates. Plastic is one of earths worst nightmares because once it is created, it can never be completely destroyed. The good news is that you can help; by reducing your plastic and spreading the word.

"During my coastal ventures, I met Sharkie, a local from this part of the planet. He talked a lot about how him and I aren't so different after all. How we are all the same, regardless of our origins, looks or color.
And so I decided to know more and discover some parts of his simple mind."
Line Cutterz just finished the 2017 coast to coast Expo road tour and we met a ton of new friends. We are honored to have such an amazing group of anglers supporting our young company. It's hard to believe in just over 2 years we have anglers in 5 continents rock'n our logo. Huge shout out to #teamlinecutterz Field Staffer @tmcgee24 and friends who epitomize what we are about. Getting together with close friends and seizing the day. Thanks to all of you who have jumped on the @Line_Cutterz train. Carpe Diem!
🔵Plumed Basilisk (Basiliscus plumifrons)🔵
Also known as the "Jesus Christ lizard," this incredible reptilian species is known for its ability to run for short periods over the surface of water. When escaping predators, these lizards can drop from a branch into the water below and run on either their hind legs or on all fours for about 17 feet, using tiny webs of skin between their hind toes to aid their running. Interestingly, if they can't reach the shore before exhausting themselves and sinking, they simply use their excellent swimming ability to paddle with their tail the rest of the way (even holding their breath underwater for extended periods if neccessary)! The "plumes" or crests on the head, back, and tail of the male lizard are used for defensive displays - females, meanwhile, only sport the head crest. Unlike many other lizards, the plumed lizard cannot detach its tail from its body to distract attackers, most likely because the tail is so essential to the lizard's ability to maintain balance while running. This species is found throughout the rainforests of Central America and is an omnivorous feeder, eating anything from fruit and flowers to mice and smaller lizards! The plumed basilisk is listed as a species of Least Concern. 🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎🦎

When you just take a dip from the beach and you can capture a school of Golden Rays and a Blacktip Shark in the same frame. Not to mention the stingrays, the other dozen Blackies, sea turtle, and the plethora of fish and Marine Iguanas that we were able to see. This place is amazing! Can't wait to see what kind of creatures we find when actually do a tour to the other side of the island. And we can't wait to share more pics of this amazing place with you.
