A highlight from Unveiling the Allure of PK Lures with Curt Reeff
"Fish on! Hey, Radcast is on! And welcome to the show, Mr. Jim Zumbo. Gentlemen, I am pleased to be here and I use that term loosely when I say gentlemen. Al Winder. Just want to welcome you to the show. Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to hang out with us on a podcast for a little bit. Hey, I'm looking forward to it. Nothing makes me happier than you'd be talking about. Hailing from Wisconsin, Janna Waller. Thanks so much for having me. It's Radcast. Hunting, fishing, and everything in between. Powered by Bowspider. Brought to you by PK Lures and High Mountain Seasonings. And now, here's your hosts, Patrick Edwards and David Merrow. Welcome to another episode of Radcast Outdoors. I'm one of your hosts, Patrick Edwards. And I'm David Merrow. It's good to be back in the studio and today we're because we get to have one of our sponsors on the show technically too because you're here as well. We get to have one of our sponsors on the show and of course one of my favorites just because I love the fishing side so much. So, Curt Reef, owner of PK Lures, welcome to the podcast, man. Hey, guys. It's always exciting to follow what PK Lures is doing because they're always innovating. Pat O 'Grady and the team that Curt has, they're always coming up with ideas and they're testing out things to help you catch more and bigger fish, which is one of the reasons I use PKs all the time. I'm a bigger fly fisherman. I always have been ever since I was young, but I have no problem picking up a rod and reel. I have no problem putting on bait. I have no problem grabbing a rifle when it's rifle season even though I'm a bow hunter, right? I don't discriminate. However, there's a couple rivers here in Wyoming that I tried fly fishing and tried fly fishing and asked the locals and asked the guides and asked the shops and got the flies and beat that water up and Patrick takes me down there and we throw a PK on and I'm killing some big trout, big fish, and having a blast doing it. He's working on converting me to typically the rod and reel and the fly rod now are always in the truck. And they're both great, but it is really cool. PK is always doing some cool stuff and I have a long history with PK, but still I got to say one of my favorites is the flutter fish. I catch fish everywhere on that thing. And guys ask me, me personally, friends, listeners of the show, and they, specifically the other two sponsors, which is High Mountain Seasoning and PK, they're like, you're paid to use it. You're paid to talk about it. You really like it. I'm like, I've told them several times. If I wasn't affiliated with him, I'd be using High Mountain Seasoning and just seeing the difference in putting any PK on, especially the Red Dot Glow, wherever we go, charge that thing up with a flashlight and catch some walleye at night. It's a blast. Yeah, exactly. So Kurt, it's really cool to have you on the show. Thanks again for sponsoring the show. We certainly love our PKs and we're using them quite often because we like to get out on the water. We're transitioning into that hard water season and PK has been known for a long time for the ice fishing gear. And so I was just wanting to have you on to talk about what's new and what's coming. But first, I think it's really cool for our audience to get to know you a little bit. So Kurt, tell us a little bit about where you're from and how you got into fishing. Yeah, I don't know. I'm a redneck country guy from North Dakota. I don't like being indoors. I got to be outside. That's what got me into this stuff. I graduated from this area. I'm out of Lytton, North Dakota. We're just north of the South Dakota state line. We are located on the waters of Lake Oahe. It's the heart of the Missouri River. It goes from down to the Mississippi. There's Lake Oahe, Lake Francis, Lake Sharp that all look up to it. We fish a lot of like structure, a little bit of everything. And right now there's still a good live bait like going on. These fish that we are targeting right now on the Lake Oahe portion are starting their fall migration from south of Mole Ridge down by Akaska, here in South Dakota. They start to transition to move up north around this mark where they're going to spawn next spring. We just did a big fishing tournament here on the Missouri called the Big Muddy. That was about two weeks ago. From then until now fishing has changed. There's been a good bite around the River Bay here. This last week there's been a ton of boats out. People are getting out. I'm looking to get down next Monday just to test out some different stuff and see what's going on. But if these fish keep migrating north, ice fish should be great. But yeah, I've got a construction business on the side that we do roofing gutters and siding. And as I spend my winters off, that's what got me going into PK. I met Pat here a couple of years ago. We took him up to Lake Whip and I was looking to do something as an investment I wanted to do. I had some ideas I to wanted do. And I ran him by Pat. I'm looking at maybe getting out of there. So we worked out a deal within a week or two. I basically bought the company. But from then PK started in 2009. Pat did a great job with it. He didn't have a lot of social media, internet skills. It was all basically word of mouth. Whatever he did, it was just word of mouth. I got into it and I'm not much better than Pat. I don't know a whole lot about computers and stuff, but we've been just testing out some new stuff. We started that ice fishing company. I fished the National Walleye tour competitively in the summertime. This year I got busy with my other job so I didn't get to do the whole schedule. I'm looking forward to doing the whole schedule at the end of the next year. We start out in Lake Erie and I'm actually going out there here in a couple of weeks to test out some new products. Now I really get an head start on pre -fishing. I'm just going to get out and do one more big open water trip, I guess. I'm going to be meeting my dad and brother out there. We're That's awesome. Sounds like a lot of fun. And one of the things that I've always enjoyed over the years is seeing some of the ideas that Pat has come up with. And I know you two collaborate quite a bit and Tim Jenny and all the guys. I'm like, what are we going to come up with next? It's going to be the new big thing. And I know the Ridge Rattler has been an important part of my arsenal over the last year and a half, two years. And I see that you're coming out with a smaller version of that for ice season, which is really exciting, especially for those of us like me who love to hammer the walleye and the trout through the ice. So can you tell us just a little bit more about that product? Yeah, being a competitive angler, I got a tie on a PTA, whatever I'm doing or for the pizza purpose of building a tackle company. I can go out and use what actually works and do as good as everybody else. But the idea was what PTA we're trying to do our own thing. We're trying to be unique in and making something that's not out there yet. If you go, I'm looking at something you think what's it's already been done. What can we do to make it better? Anything different with the PTA Ridge Rattler? We took our crankbait. We have what's called a Ridgeline Gen 2 crankbait. It's got ridges on the outside. Those ridges give it a different vibration as it travels through the water. And if you want to trigger fish, you basically need three elements. You need noise, flash and vibration. If you can get one of those elements into something that's probably going to catch fish. Although, a bare hook will catch fish. Don't get me wrong. You don't always have to have something pretty and crazy out there. It can be very simple. But we took that design of the PK Ridgeline crankbait and downsized it into a lipless crankbait. In doing so, I like to use a lot of lipless cranks. Like I started off with Live Target and those are very light. They're hard to use during open water because they don't have a lot of direction of going down. They kind of jig and they do their thing. It's a cool product. They almost got some cool stuff with the light. They just don't drop fast. I was looking for something I can use for open water and ice fishing. So what we did, we added extra weight to the front. We called it a weight forward design. By doing so, that creates a fast drop alert. And we kept those ridges on the side. Those ridges cause vibration. When I'm out there jigging it or ripping it or throwing it back to me, I'm going to jig it up. And as I jig it up, I can feel vibration in my rod. That vibration lets me know that alert isn't followed up. It's actually working. And as it's doing that, it's triggering the strike. The idea is you want to rip it up, get it to vibrate and let it swim down and sink and hit the bottom. It's going to stir things up. But if it's a great lure for open water, cast like a bullet. We use it a lot up in say Devil's Lake and Sakakawea or Castle of Weedlines. Perfect lure for up there. Doesn't matter if it's windy out or not, you can cast that. Where some of the other ones you just can't cast into the wind, it's too light. But it works great for ice fishing, great for open water. And then this year we come out with three new products. The ideal is we're going for the Finicky Bite. We're downsizing things on the Ridge Rider. This one here we come out with, it's called the Mini. I didn't see it or not, but it basically weighs just under a quarter ounce. And we already have a quarter ounce one, but this is about half the size. Some of that weight, it's just a nice fast dropping lure. It's got smaller hooks on it. It's designed to catch crappie and perch and all this. But when we were testing it up in Devil's Lake last year, it isn't just up in Devil's Lake, but we have a bunch of areas down here where we have nice walleye and nice perch that share the same water. So you can be targeting perch for an hour and next thing you'll get a six ball walleye come. So this lure is great for that because it's got the small hooks on it for the perch crappie. But when a walleye bites it, it doesn't just nibble on it. It basically inhales. If you're going to use this for a walleye, bring fires with you because they're going to have to try on a small. Just something cool. And there's a lot of similar products out there, but the big difference on this, it's the weight forward design and the ribs. It's going to vibrate and it's going to have a fast drop with the other one. Just don't ask. Yeah. I've fished before you guys came out with the Ridge Rattler, I used some of the smaller lipless cranks and they just don't have the weight. You were talking about those like the rattle trap is one I think about. It was okay, but I can cast the PK Ridge Rattler almost twice as far. It's going to dive deeper. Yes, much deeper. And it's fun. I took it last year out off of this. We have this gravel point that would drop off and I was running that Ridge Rattler right up, right up that gravel drop off and just catching walleye after walleye off that drop. And I've noticed those predatory fish. They really want to be low in the water column and watch that bait fish. And when that bait fish is getting close to the surface and close the bank, that's when they want to run up and strike and eat that thing. So if you can mimic that where, where bait fish are, you know, running away, but they're running out of basically maneuverable room, that's when those big fish are like, okay, I've got you. I'm going for it. And they can corral you. Yeah. And Kurt, I was going to say those smaller ones are going to be really awesome for trout here in the West because a lot of our lakes, we have predator and believe me, they are predatory brook trout, splake, browns, fishing that smaller version through the ice and mid winter is going to be great because some of those bigger ones sometimes turn them off, right? Like it's a little too much for them, but downsizing a little bit, I think is going to be just killer for the trout through the ice here in Wyoming, Montana, and the Western States. It's going to be fun to put them to use for sure. Well, one key element on catching fish is that I can be using a Renway dinner devil, right? And it's, I can have one size and it just doesn't work. Sometimes you just go to a smaller size. That's all you really need to do. You can have the right color and everything else, but sometimes it's going to a smaller size. It's all you need to do. So that's why we come out with this mini rig browser, just a different option of what already works great. Yeah. Just as a business owner, what are some tips and tricks you found? You have two companies you've talked about you're running. You've got your competitive fishing. What are some things you've done to bring balance into? Cause obviously R and D new products, bringing that to the market. I know personally what is behind that and the amount of energy work, stress, strife goes into launching a new product, but you're also running another existing company. And then you talked about, you're getting to go do competitive fishing, which is your kind of sounds like your bread and butter, what you like to do. So how do you balance all this to keep a holistic schedule and keep you motivated to keep producing new products? Yeah, no, that's a great question. I don't even know where to start. How do you balance not just one job, but basically two. And for one, you gotta have a good foundation at home. You gotta have a good support group. You gotta have good friends and family that help you out. I can't do this on my own. There's no way. I probably talk to Pat once a week. You just kick around different ideals, but then there's the financial part of this too, where it just, in this story, you got a couple million dollars worth of product, which we're just sitting on, waiting to go. And some of it sells better than the other stuff, but to be a weird tiny company we're competing against Rapalas and Berkleys and Northlands that we're not there, but hopefully someday we'll, we'll get a little bit closer. I was just uptown on the other day at Shields in Bismarck and what started out being just a two by two area of PK is we always got an eight foot section up there right now. So that's a big store. That's a good store for us, but it's not one of our biggest. Hopefully every year we keep gaining tech space. It all starts with having a good support group and my other company is doing very well where we can take some money out of put in with something new. Like we talked about earlier, we come out with some different stuff this year. We're also an open water company. I got to keep coming out with Oakland water products. And I think we're on the right track. We've got stuff that's unique again, and then I can catch a fish, but trying to balance everything. Yeah. It's a chaos sometimes. There's nothing worse than being a competitive fisherman. That's probably the most stressful job you can have. So that's going to keep moving forward and doing the best we can. I picked this one up the other day and as an entrepreneur, business owner, if the things you do in your downtime don't revitalize and re -energize, you're not going to make it very long. It's just, you know, it sounds like fishing, even though it causes some stress, it's your getaway from the fishing lure company, right? Yeah. No, I just love the outdoor part about being a competitive ranger. If we get to go somewhere and we'll be up in Green Bay, we'll be on Erie. This August here, we took a couple of net views off the port packing. We just changed trout, lake trout. That was a blast. If you want to go to a cook catch 25 to 30 inch wakers, four pack is it, and it's only six hours only, but it's six hours from us. And we ice fish big in the last mountain, plus all around here. Going to the different bides of water, you think it's a little vacation, but it's really not. Everywhere I might go, I pick up different things I need to do, where I do with DK, where it's different colors, different bides of water, fish react differently to certain things. So as we're going around ice fishing, open water fishing, I'm picking up things. I might go to somewhere to just tank and just do terrible, but yet I picked up some skills there or I learned something new that I can take somewhere else. So it was very beneficial to actually go to this event. It's just, we're always learning and that's something we got to do to keep things moving forward. I was going to ask you this later in the podcast, but I think I'll ask it now is if you're talking to somebody who's looking at the market and looking at different options, so you talked about Northland, you talked about Berkeley, Rapala, all those big companies, and then PKs, tell them just if you were to tell them one thing about why they should buy a PK, what would that be? What is the one thing you'd say, this is why you got to have PKs, this is why you should try this? I'm not one to say that PK is a catch -all. It isn't. Should PK be in someone's arsenal? Why not? We've got something for everybody, water, we've got something for every water type, almost every species of fish. We're a North Dakota, better known, why not give it a try? I know some guys are stuck on certain things, that's the hardest thing that this little industry is to get people to try something new. A lot of older guys have a talk box that's full, right? They don't have any need or any desire to buy anything new. They've got what works, they've got what's got them their biggest fish. We're targeting the younger generation, where we sponsor the high school fishing league in our state here. It's basically like, you know, the bass circuit, but we try to target, or we try to cater to the younger generation. That's the guys that have a tackle box that's empty, they're looking to fill it up, and they're more eager to try it, and they might not have as much experience on the water, so if we can get them a PK in their hand and they can catch their first big fish on it, they're hooked. And that's a lot of guys' big mistake, is that they're not willing to try something new, where they might try a certain crankbait, where they might try a particular crankbait that they like, and they'll put that crankbait on for six, seven hours, and if they don't catch a fish, they'll just, at the end of that fishing trip, they'll say the fish just didn't bite. That probably isn't the case, because they were open to try something new. It can be a benefit with something new, and I would say try it, you got something for basically everybody. Yeah, and I would echo that for sure, like this summer we were, I took my family up to Keyhole, and I did a podcast on that, and my son and my dad and I, so it was three generations of boys in the boat, and we wanted to go out and get after the walleye. The wind blew for a couple of days, where we couldn't get out to where I knew the walleye would probably be, so we focused on crappie and pike and other things, and then when we were able to get out to where the walleye were, that PK Dakota Disc was awesome, and my dad's kind of that older guy you're talking about, Kurt, where he's 80 years old, and he has the one thing that's always worked for him. He's got one of those crawler harnesses that Northland made that he loved, and Ben's on the other side of the boat with this PK Dakota Disc out fishing grandpa, so that was pretty cool. He was having fun, he's catching fish after fish, and we were done pretty quickly. It didn't take very long once we could get out to where they were at, but that Dakota Disc shines, and that PK Wobbler, a lot of your open water stuff, man, I'm just like, you have as a fisherman, you're like, okay, it's a crawler harness. It's not just a crawler harness, and what's really cool is, for me, I've been able to put a lot of fish in the boat this year using that, and I was going to tell you this story too. I have a nephew, he lives in like the Denver metro area, right, so real busy part of Denver, doesn't go fishing, mostly plays video games. I had him come up here to Boyson Reservoir with me, and we went out, and we were pulling a PK Wobbler, and I like the one that's got the pink with the kind of silvery look to it, and we were using that, and we were, seriously, we were going about a half a mile an hour to three quarters of a mile an hour, and about three foot of water right off the edges, some weeds, and some kind of dirty water, and we had our limit in 45 minutes. It was so much fun, he had a blast, and so I would just echo that, why not try something different? It is fun to, especially in the summer, you don't have to use the same crawler harness you've been using for 25 years. You can try some of these new things that give off a different vibration, a different flash, have a little different action to them, and they work really well. Thank you for putting those out, because they certainly helped us this summer quite a bit. That PK Wobbler and that Dakota Disc, and go over some cool products that pull on live beads. That's all I ever did. Back then, there was a Colorado blade, and there was an Indiana blade, and you would put on different beads, different colored beads, different colors, and just mix and match until you got something that was this cool. When Pat first designed that PK Wobbler, it was basically out of a piece of balsa wood, and he had filed that out, and there's one side that's flat, one side's round, and when we tested it, it was the rounded side, which is the opposite side that it is now. It's the rounded side, it's your fishing pole, and that just wobbled back and forth. Probably went about 20 degrees, that you sped up, it just wobbled faster, and you go, oh, that's cool. It's a float that has action, so let's just call it the PK Wobbler. It just made sense, but then when it goes into production, it goes from balsa wood into fork, and it totally chunks the action, and I panicked, because I got this piece of foam back, and I think I was out in Green Bay or somewhere, and I was just putting some on, and it basically wasn't doing anything. It was like, pulling around a box, and I'm like, God, I got a lot of these, I don't know what I'm going to do with them. So we peed out around, and I got this idea, let's just flip it around, so now we have the part that's flat, that face of the fishing pole, and that turned it into a multi -directional floating spinner. That was by accident. Now we got stuff that's in multi -directional, multi -directional. Whoever thought of that, I wasn't thinking of that, but that's what it does, and we got the patent for that, and that's ours, when it all happened by a lot, but as a kid growing up floating spinner, I thought, how else can we do a spinner? It's been done before, and then after, I ended up sitting, and then we kind of worked together to make what it is, but that PK Wobbler, I cashed two checks on the National Walleye Tour with it, plus a bunch of other checks of fishing, different other fish tournaments, but what a cooler. I think it does better in mid -summer, more on the Great Lakes. It just covers a bigger body of, as it spins, it displaces water in a bigger area, where say you go out to Lake Erie, it's always big blade, big stuff, right? As it spins, it's covering an area that's bigger than an actual spinner would, if that makes any sense, and then my dad and brother were out here two years ago, and they were messing around. When you go up here, it's always crankbaits, big stickbaits, reef runners, bandits, baglies, those, you're graded out there, so if you're going to go to Erie, if you're going to drive 14 hours, it's going to put the whole world up, it just makes sense. Why do you want to go out there and mess around with something that probably isn't going to catch a fish, when you only have a couple days to fish? So they went out there, and they're pulling big big bait bandits around, and then my dad being sad, he puts on the PK Wobbler in front of it, or whatever, let's see what it does. That first day, they went out, they've had a one pull, my dad outfished my brother like five to one, with a wobbler in front of a six -bait bandit, right? I don't know if it turns it into a scatter wrap, where it's got a little different action, or something, but by the end of their trip, they had a wobbler in front of every bandit, so that was just super cool. That's why we're going to go out there next week, we're going to play around with this some more, and we're going to put wobbler in front of cranks, and then we have a different rattle float coming out next year, we're going to play around with that, and then we got a Kaleidote we're working on for next year, and we're going to play around with that, and see what comes of it, but that PK Wobbler is super cool, we pretty much sell them all year around, even in February, we got wobbler's going out the door, which I think is just neat, and then that PK decoded this, it's just a round disc, about little, about a quarter, we got the idea, that's the full flapping around, it just goes side to side, and it causes vibration, it's kind of a swimming action, killer lure up on Devil's Lake, I don't think it goes by a fish that it doesn't catch, it just really does very well up in Devil's Lake, Lake Oahu out here, I think, I think almost anywhere I've ever put that on, I've caught fish, super cooler, deep, doesn't cost a lot, but if you want to tie your own, we have all the parts, you can buy them online, and you get a pack of 12 discs, very effective lure, and the get up and done often make it different, and we did it again with the PK decoded disc. Yeah, like I said, it worked great for me this summer, but I want to go back to this, you've got some new micro stuff coming out for this winter season, besides the Ridge Rattler, can you talk about those other two products, because I think those, especially around here, because we've got, we got the trout that I know will eat them, we've got the walleye, the crappie, the perch, all those different things, just highlight some of those new micros that you got coming out. Oh, this starts out now, about two years ago, I fished, called the NAIFC, I think it's still having a lure, but it's basically a special panfish ice fishing circuit, where they target bluegills, the area where I'm at, we don't have any bluegills, I don't, I think I caught my first one here probably three years ago, they're a very aggressive fish, like a crappie, but a lot smaller, but anyway, we were fishing Lake Oahu in Iowa, went down there, and I brought the PK predator tungsten, it's a one ounce tungsten, got a blade on it, a treble hook, we were fishing, and I could see them on my livestock, and there was a bunch of them down there, they wouldn't fight, and so I go online, and I'm trying to figure out how to catch a bluegill, and first thing I said is, lighten up your line, you know, go like a two pound test, and I did that, and I think our PK predator tungsten was a little too big, so you can come up with the idea of, let's drop the hook from the actual lure, to get like space out there, and then that seemed to work, started catching fish, that came up with the idea of, let's just make a real small tungsten, how small can we go, we got it down to a one thirty second out tungsten, and this is called the metagoshi rig, that all came from the idea of bluegill bite eat, bug bite eat, so the idea, this is this lure, bait chasing bait, when you stick something on the hook, it's basically, that hook is going to be following that lure, like bait chasing bait down there, real cool idea, we used a little bit last fall on Devil's Lake, we were catching blue jumbo perch with this, and then we would have walleye come through, I think our biggest walleye we caught was about three pounds, the chain did not break, I'm like, I'm sold, this is an awesome lure, bluegill, crappie, perch, and walleye, but I'm not saying this is a walleye lure, but if you have one come through, you're going to be okay with it, you know, that's the hook, right, and then as I'm going around, different sporting shows, I'm thinking, hey, I got this cool small spoon with a drop chain, and I'm showing guys, and they're like, you know what would be cooler than that, a treble hook on it, and I'm like, I can't breathe these guys, so what I did, I come out with a TK micro spoon, same one 30 second tongues in, but we put a size 20 treble hook on it, that way I got all the anglers happy, I think, I covered every bait, yeah, we got six colors of each, real cool lures, shield was down in Kirkwood Chasm, and here's a bunch of other stores that are slowly picking them up, but it's something new, so if you don't have it at your store, ask as far as that they order it, or check it out on our website, where we're fully stocked.
A highlight from Jason Jones and Seth Talbott
"Welcome to The Eric Mataxas Show. It's a nutritious smoothie of creamy, fresh yogurt, vanilla, protein powder, and a mushy banana for your mind. Drink it all down. It's nummy. I want vanilla. I want vanilla. Here comes Eric Mataxas. Hey there, folks. Welcome to the program. You are aware that a nightmare has been happening in our beautiful state of Hawaii. We want to reach out to one of our friends who lives there, Jason Jones. He has tremendous credentials, the most important of which is that he's friends with John Zmirak. Jason Jones, welcome. It's great to be on your show, Eric. Thank you for having me. I have been mystified as to what is actually happening in Hawaii. I've read conflicting reports. It's very confusing. You live there. What's your sense of what is happening, what's being done? Well, you know, Eric, I don't know when this started in our country that when there is a catastrophe, our government officials think that their most important job is to go on television and dissemble. It's as if they don't want to communicate the truth. This leads to all sorts of conspiracy theories and despair, and that's what we're seeing here in Lahaina. This is the home of my family. We've moved to Texas during COVID. We've been there now for two years, but my family lives here. My daughter has a business here, and this is our home. It was very strange. I run an organization that serves communities in catastrophes facing genocide and war. I never imagined in my life that I would be flying to Hawaii to do what it is that I do. And what has happened in Lahaina, the way I feel it, and I think the way that the people of Hawaii feel it, it's like the scale of 9 -11. It's not 100 dead. And it was 30, then it was 60, and they act each time, and they're creeping it up, creeping it up. They need to tell the truth. Lahaina is gone. They sent schoolchildren home to empty houses. They didn't have cell phones. The alarms did not go off. The sirens did not go off. If you didn't have a cell phone, there would be no way for you to know to leave your house and you're a child. So we're going to find lots of children. They're finding children. They're finding families. This fire moved at one point up to a mile a minute. There's no escaping that. And the poor tourists are coming here. The locals are getting upset because tourists are arriving. Well, but the tourists didn't really know. The media was not communicating what happened. Even on Oahu and the other islands, if it weren't for families communicating with each other, and the people in Lahaina still, we're shipping generators over there now on solar panels and we desperately need star links. So Elon Musk, if you're watching, we need star links. Star links have helped us in Ukraine and Afghanistan. And again, to imagine that I would have to be shipping and flying over star links to Lahaina, Maui is really unbelievable, Eric. But this is one of the greatest catastrophes in American history. Now I've been traveling for two days and very busy. So maybe something happened in the past 48 hours, but I feel that the media is not giving this catastrophe the attention that it deserves. And there's some real things that we need to do, which is protect the Kama 'aina, those families that have lived in Hawaii for generations, and especially the native Hawaiians. Because vultures are descending on Lahaina trying to buy their property in the midst of this crisis, this is something that cannot be allowed to happen. These Hawaiian families and these Kama 'aina families have been pesky to groups like BlackRock who want them to sell their property because they're sitting on billions and billions of dollars of property. But it's more than money to these families. This is all they have. This is all they know. This is their home. And they need to be protected. They're going to need help paying for funerals. There's going to be too many funerals to imagine. And then we're going to have to rebuild Lahaina and protect it. Now how many people, because I've literally never been to Hawaii, I don't have any sense of the scope of what you're talking about. When you say Lahaina, this is a part of Maui, give us a sense of what we're talking about. Yeah, it was actually the capital of the Hawaiian Islands for a long time. And Eric, it's also the center for the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ to Hawaii. It's really where it started. By 1850, Hawaii was the most Christian kingdom in the world.
"Wildfires Ravage Through Maui As The Death Toll Reaches 80"
"The number of people missing in the midst of these fires could be as high as 1 ,000. One woman, a Maui resident, hopes her grandmother has escaped as she struggles to reach her. This is what the woman told NBC Nightly News. As of about 3 .14 p .m. Eastern Daylight Time, officials have confirmed about 80 deaths as these wildfires ravaged through the island of Maui. Maui County Mayor Richard Bison warned the death toll could go up. A total of 2 ,200 buildings and other structures have been destroyed as of Friday, while 2 ,170 acres have been burned. The death toll hits 80 as officials say rebuild efforts could top 5 .5 billion. Six fires are burning in Maui and the Big Island, but officials say the Lahaina Fire is now 85 percent contained. Many of the town's historic landmarks are lost. Hawaii Governor Josh Green said the fires are likely to be the largest natural disaster in the state's history. Lahaina is the most impacted area on the island located in western Maui. According to the Associated Press, Maui residents returned to their neighborhood to find block after block of flattened homes and businesses. Incinerated telephone poles and ashy lots where apartment buildings once stood. We're hearing a lot about wildfires. We had some here in the Northwest. I think with the global warming and so many other factors that the Biden administration needs to tackle, they definitely need to get a grip on. We're seeing a lot of wildfires lately. Our prayers go out to the citizens of Maui. Hawaii is a beautiful place. I've been there multiple times. Very beautiful. The Big Island, Oahu, just a beautiful place. Very tropical. I mean, just a beautiful place. To hear that they're actually experiencing these catastrophic fires is very, very disheartening. We're going to keep you posted here on Combo Over Cigars. As we get the updates, so will you. You guys have been locked in to Combo Over Cigars on a Saturday. I'm your host, Derrick Andre Flemming. Be blessed.

"Community. I mean, everybody knows everybody and. Like I said, the community follows the team. And so our home games are packed, we pack the gym, our concession is sold out before I think the varsity game even starts. Most of the time and when it comes to fundraisers, the communities there and state tournament going up to Oahu, people just spending the time in the money to follow the boys and support the boys and it just means so much to the boys and creating that experience right that they have the community behind us. And so the boys, it's always for the community. We play for the name on the front of our jerseys. And so the boys and the coaches, we always dedicate the season, not just through the community, but this year especially was special because we kind of dedicated the season to the 2020 team that couldn't defend their title in 2021. Those seniors that lost out on a season, the seniors that didn't make it to the state championship the year before. And so the boys are always playing for somebody and we always told them to play inspired basketball because when you play inspiring basketball, good things happen on the court. But not just that it's good things happen off the court with the people that are watching you. There's often little kids that are watching parents bring their kids and that's the great thing. I mean, before there was a leading kalka, there was ocean casm era before there was an ocean casm barrel. There was a helium figure raw. There's a brand in Bautista. And I can go on and on. There's Lauren's keone emiliano. And Brad is the dawn for nannies. I mean, these are generations of basketball players that came on koala. You know, there's way too many for me to even describe on this show, but you know the basketball roots is deep in kohala and the community well behind the team. And so it's a great atmosphere, a great community to be a part of. Well, coach, we're going to have to wrap up this show and another minute or so, but I want to give you the last word and tell us about any kind of upcoming celebrations that are planned to honor your team. Yeah, so we kind of had our little parade already when we came home. We had our homecoming through the town. We had the fire, the fire truck escort, the police escort, and whatnot. And so we're actually gearing up for a banquet coming up April 1st and our holy state rep our mayor, our governor is making plans to attend and we've got some rings that is being on order right now. And just looking forward to companionship, fellowship with the parents and some of the community members and just kind of soaking it all in before we kind of really officially put this season to a close and look forward to defending a title next year.

Previous This is an area of our health that we need to be acutely aware of. But often times we don't really consider vain health if you will, right? Yeah. You're absolutely right. And, uh, and a lot of people don't you know all of the myriad of symptoms? That they may be having that could be, you know, chalked up to poor, vain function. I think that other you know, other disease processes are probably a little more recognized and understood in general by the population. You know, for instance, heart disease or stroke. You know those types of things they're little more obvious. Maybe. But they've also been exposed to, you know, friends, family members and whatever they're a little more familiar with the symptoms. Um, and a little more familiar with what can be done with respect to training, for instance, heart disease. You know, we all everybody knows. Well, you need to be on a low fat diet. You need exercise. You need to stop smoking. You know all those things. But the with respect to how they may personally approach potential, vain disease. Um people don't people don't know that. And that's why I'd like to do this kind of stuff to, you know, to get that information out there. But yeah, there's a you know, One of the things that I like to talk about is just the symptoms. Um, that aren't necessarily obvious. A zit relates to vain disease. You know, for instance, Beric owes veins. I mean, everybody knows very close veins and must be of a problem and they come to see us, but There's a bunch of people out there that don't have Jericho's veins, but they have that same process of what we call venous insufficiency. That just means that the veins in the legs aren't working the way they should. Um, And and so they don't know. You know, for instance, people, people with chronic swelling in their legs in there's a lot of people out there with that. Amen. And, you know, discoloration of the skin. I mean, when you walk around, you see, I know I see it all the time. But, you know, a keenness heaviness fatigue, you know, in our legs, you know our legs get tired quicker than they used to. And you know, I hear over and over again. No. I just thought I was getting older, you know, And that might not be the case. You know, maybe your legs are feeling tired and fatigued because you have something else going on, which is very correctable. Right. See a year. I feel like I should sign up and give you my health card because you're speaking directly to issues that I'm personally going with you and there's a hypersensitivity to touch. Calves, even quads in the lake. Okay, where my trainer was trying to help and the pain from just simply ruling to get Moving the circular I couldn't bear. I mean, it was that Painful. Yeah, Yeah. Um, And that may very well be a symptom of being a sense efficiency for sure. Um, you know, the a keenness and numbness, tingling hypersensitivity. All of those things might be potential symptoms of again this process of being since efficiency. You know, another big group of people that don't know they have vain problems are those people who have cramping your muscle cream Charley horses at night and especially in our older patients. You know that can affect their quality of life tremendously. If they're having to get up, you know in their elderly and it's not. It's not as easy for them to pop out of bed and, you know, walk around the bedroom a little bit. Get rid of the Charlie Yours. But you know they're waking up to three times a night on bond. I said it impacts their quality of life and I can't tell you the number of Again. Older people who come in with that complaint, and we tell them, you know. Well, if we fix your veins very likely that will make that better and maybe even get rid of it completely. Um and they feel great. You know, they that's probably one of the most common, you know, really, really kind of positive. Responds. We get from people with respect to cramping and when we can get rid of that for them, So if I may ask, because I have two teenage Children relatively active, and they will occasionally suffer. A night cramp. Yeah, in the calves. It Is that a symptom of something? Or is it an isolated instance? Or could it be? Yeah, in in a young age group in, you know, Ah, young person who doesn't otherwise have, you know, vain kind of things. Now you know there are being problems that happened two young kids, but it's more of a congenital thing. You know, they could be born with problems but something that you're describing No, I wouldn't say that that is due to You know, standard run of the mill. What we call being this insufficiency. It's just, you know, maybe they are a little dehydrated or electrolyte imbalance because they're you know, because they're running around all day or maybe the activities that they were involved in that day, so probably not. So I was given mustard. Yes, a trainer. He said. Take the two packets of mustard. Well started cramping. Really? It work you did actually, that does that does work. It can work because There's a number of different things that cause cramping, you know, not all cramping is caused by being disease, but you know the electrolyte imbalances or abnormalities. Insufficiencies, right can also impact that. Um and I had always I had forever heard that you know that remedy and and I tried it one night I had a bad cramp Got up. You know, you took a couple of big spoons of mustard. And it worked so great. I couldn't believe it. Yeah. So interesting. So s so Yeah. You know when when people come in, and they have this complaint of cramping Usually, Ah, usually magnesium is the first thing that I tell them to start supplement, you know? Make sure that they have very good hydration. Because most people don't you know, hydrate well enough throughout the day, um and then also supplement with magnesium and just over the counter over the com kind of thing. Um and see, See what happens. Um, sometimes sometimes that is the remedy. Sometimes that's all it takes. But you know, often often it has to do with their brain function. It's so interesting because we're talking to so many folks that can relate. And it's not often enough that we have the opportunity to speak with you.

Exactly iPod. I know thanks to the biggest legends ever, And the funny part is he doesn't serve. He's never served a day in his life. You know, I'm just not I not just because I got that stupid. So okay. First of all s O. Did you were you? Were you Were you aware when you were a kid of your dad's kind of royalty reputation because they're there If you go to Hawaii, and you go to Oahu Yeah. You know, there's a certain amount of like it really is. You're going to their house. It's not just the island. You're going to their house and you're there. And they're really cool to have stuff like that. But so their family and your visit the house clean and keep right? Yes, because did you realize because you had that island thing? Did you realize how big you guys were outside of that? You know, as a kid up until my early team not early teens, maybe 9 10 years old. It really didn't We connect because it was He was literally my dad and he was going to work and he was coming home, You know, but didn't didn't people stop you guys Every time you went out to eat, or every time we time, every time every time I heard a very timely recognized but didn't really matter, Just like when I got to be a teenager. It was annoying. What between, So let's go. Let's go. Let's take it back because you guys have been referred to his wife and royalty. Probably your whole life on that Zen large part to your dad talked about that woman. It is and you know, sometimes it's a little uncomfortable to be referred that way. But it really is because of what my dad did, and what he stood for first and foremost, He was most proud not of any of his achievements. But the fact that he was Hawaiian. Yeah, that was that meant the most to head up and couple that with his advancements and how he touched the world surfing, not just their design, but through his coaching. And that recognition alone. It just drove men and catapulted him. Yeah, So So he was. So he dipped his toe into the world of surfing, not just the surfing community. But the business of surfing back in the sixties seventies is it was 64 is when he started surfing and shaping at the same time, huh? And then and then from there the world change because in 70 in 1970, Of course, there was, if you think in terms of the fifties and sixties But if you consider what happened in the mid seventies, that's when the really that commercialization of really went for it. He was right in the middle of it. Yeah, it really is like he was a major catalyst of what took surfing from just trimming and cruising to performance. Surfing his design. The staying was based off of the hydroplane speedboat. And when he saw how fast that thing would throttle turn, it clicked and went off. So for him in this whole transitionary era going from cruising toe performance, that design landed perfectly. Yeah. Partners say all those two styles because I've seen myself on the first. Just just a garage door. I just want to stand on a board right away would be good. Let's say that's the first mistake. You don't ride away. You surf the wave. Okay, right in the car. All right. The car service oil. Come on. So action. Jackson is a prolific surfer and where they call that thing Skim or they still have stingers after they have that that shapes a lot there, Jack. Yes. So to this day, I think I chipped it. That's that design actually influenced every single wing bored. You see? Yeah. Everyhing bore you talk to us, by the way. Do diapers here. He's the president. CEO of iPods. Surf company, Ai pas, even for our TV. Why don't you look at the website right there? It's like a surf calm. So talk to us about how the business Where were you guys doing right now? How your company? What do you guys say? You're selling surfboards are selling apparel and everything else talked about the whole thing. Wow, You know we're pretty much running the gamut. We're definitely focused on board because first and foremost, that's who we are. We're bored Builders. But we're branching out through collaborations with other companies, which in today's business environment environment seems to be the healthiest way to do business, tap into each other's talents and create something special and unique. Aside from that, you know we're developing licenses in other countries to build that wards in other countries. Not specifically having and built like in China sent everywhere. But in Brazil building boards in Brazil with I work with shapers, they tune our our shapes in. We could do a whole show on just that. Just be looking there. There's the safe. I can see that rest. See that Zoe familiar to you? So So here's a question that I have for you. So okay. We broadcast live a number of times something called the S R show, which was called Action Sports retailer. Okay, which was all the surf brand serve clothing. I'm not sure if there was surfboards. They're not. But it was sort of the place where you guys all gathered or that industry gathered to make sales and bring out their new product with the advent of co bit, and I don't know that Trade should exist anymore. How did you guys survive during 2020? Because let's face it a 11 side. More people are being fit and being outside because they couldn't go anywhere else On the other side. You don't have the normal channels of selling like you used to have that we have that worked out. Well, you know, I mean, everything kind of shifted really to direct and, like, just directed consumer director said it's selling to the surf shops You're selling to Russ. Right, right, And we're still dealing with some of the surf shop some of the key locations, But it was really direct sales that was driving and you know, because of covert and everyone being home that created a bigger customer base for us, which is a blessing and a curse. If you're out in the water, and there's a whole crowd of people, but the reporter bill, there's better keep 6 ft. Away from each other out the water barrel bombs, all right. That's great, sometimes so in the industry in and of itself, you know, you have to think in terms of this when you think in terms of what happened in the surf industry, there was a big bang towards 1975 to 19 eighties and then another big bang when the short short board came out in 1980, then beyond there, it was just the technology revolution where you guys are like the whole, sir. Finishing. Where's that? The Ark of the story right now? Wow. We're really on the verge of another big bank. Really? Just I I like in it, too. Just how my dad's sting launched. In 75, or Surfer magazine posted a picture of buttons, Khalil Colony and Mark Liddell holding my dad's stings. It went viral for him, and they were stings and every fired with the barrel barrel back in the day, Man. There was this big sweeping picture. If some guy makes that little thing sticking out of the water and then because they didn't you didn't see it on national TV, Except for once a year, they would they did the pipeline Masters once a year on NBC's wide world of sports, and there wasn't social Media certainly was me talking on the radio. So it's all about magazines right now we're completely Plugged in, and we could get information whenever we want it. So the reason why I say we're on the cusp of a new revolution. Another Big Bang is my brother just released his flat earth model with Slater designs. And that thing is almost replicating the reaction of when my dad's thing launched his boards are going everywhere. Flatter, flatter. I actually have a design called the Dark Twin, which is between of his twin s. O s s. So stay right there because we're gonna take him because he was the bottom line. The story contained great song.

"Hello, this is jam with Oahu mold testing and removal and this is our first podcast. We have decided to start this podcast one because I like podcasts and I learn a lot from them. And I want to give back and two is that there is a lot of information about mold that we get. We get a lot of questions. We get a lot of the same questions. And so we want to answer some of those. This podcast is going to be our introduction podcast where we're just kind of laying out a few things. And then in future podcasts, we'll come up with some fun ideas. We'll come up with an FAQ or frequently asked questions that we get time and time again. We'll talk about the main things that anyone would want to know that lives in a house and that encounters mold. Okay? We live in Hawaii. We live on Oahu here. And mold thrives here. The conditions are such that it's warm year round. That it's we live. There's plenty of water here and rain. And it's just a place that gets mold. I mean, mold can grow on cold climates, warm climates, hot climates. Here is unique because it is warm year round and we get water year round. And so we find ourselves with a lot of mold and another thing that contributes to it is that we use a lot of air conditioning. Air conditioners, if you've ever seen one that has not been cleaned or maintained on a regular basis, usually has mold on it. That's not uncommon, but that's just what happens when you don't maintain an air conditioning system. Why? Because there's moisture there. And it can get warm if it's not on or if it's not running. And so the main thing that we gotta realize that you gotta realize is that mold spores are pretty much everywhere. We're encountering mold when we breathe. We're encountering mold on our food. We just can't see it. Now when you do see it is it's obviously visible or you can feel it through breathe in through the air in your sinuses. Sometimes you can smell it. That means it's there. You can't see it, but you can smell it. And that could be where mold is in a place where it's just not visible. There could be an inch thick layer of mold in your attic that you can't see, but you can smell. And what you're smelling is a little spores whenever they're basically exploding and trying to repopulate or reproduce themselves. Okay? So the next podcast, we're going to lay out an FAQ section that we commonly get, and that'll be the segue into our future podcasts. So stay tuned for the future or for the.

He's proposed a requirement that travelers get tested a second time after arriving. This virus requires layer upon layer of intervention and mitigating measures. Kawakami says we have to be able to respond quickly and boldly because it can spread like wildfire kawais. Recent uptick is tiny in relative terms on november twentieth. It reported six cases. Its second highest one day count so far but kawakami has good reason to be worried koci home to around. Seventy two thousand people has just nine. Icu beds and fourteen ventilators. Isolated and with limited healthcare capacity and uncontrolled. Outbreak could quickly spell disaster. The holy grail is prevention. So that is what we put our blood sweat and tears into here on kobe. Kawakami says we're almost always on the red line. A similar imperative applies across the entire state of one point. Four million people with nowhere to turn of hawaii's healthcare system is overwhelmed leaders. There have little choice but to be proactive. In preventing covid nineteen outbreaks. We are geographically remote and so our healthcare system is really vulnerable says catherine purple an associate professor of health policy and management at the university of hawaii minoa there really is a strong motivating factor to try to keep those numbers under control. Hawaii's isolation then is a double edged sword. Thousands of miles of ocean are a good tool to stop travelers from seating new corona virus clusters but if infection spin out of control anyway. Assistance could be a long time coming. We have been from the very beginning focused on the science and public health recommendations because we are twenty five hundred miles away from any help. Says the governor. We learned a long time ago. That we have to be self reliant and that we have to act as a community epidemiologists say it's difficult to attribute hawaii's relative covid nineteen success to any one factor isolation included for one thing cold weather which is forcing many americans indoors where the virus can spread. More easily is unheard of in most of hawaii. Honolulu's thanksgiving day forecast is eighty two and sunny. Other government measures may also have played a part unused hotel rooms and a wa who have been repurpose to isolate nineteen patients and restrictions on inter island. Travel have prevented. Local spread mask wearing has helped as well on kauai and a who mask. Mandates were instituted in april while an august survey found that ninety. Six percent of hawaiians are masking up. Unlike for many americans. Wearing masks to prevent illness isn't an entirely foreign concept for hawaiians public health experts. Say that's likely due to the states relative proximity to asia where facial coverings tend to be more prevalent. Many hawaii residents. Who commented for this article also cited the state's heritage and cultural values as a reason for high adherence to public health mandates. We have a culture here that comes from the first people's the native hawaiians called ball says the term juliana means responsibility and it does the people here in hawaii still leaders in hawaii have come under pressure over cove nineteen restrictions caldwell says people sometimes drive down his street to yell outside his house either at him or his wife and daughter. Some people certainly have reason to be upset. Travel restrictions have ravaged the state's tourism dependent economy hawaii's overall unemployment rate was more than fourteen percent in october according to the us department of labor the worst in the country for the second month in a row called bo says he understands people's frustrations but needs to prioritize. Public health. people are impacted. Their businesses are impacted. their life dreams are impacted. He says. I get why they're upset. But i also believe that in order to protect health and safety which is always the most important thing that comes first. And i think it's tied directly to the economy to after months of travel restrictions. Guy says the state's pretrial testing program finally bringing in visitors and helping hawaiians get back to work while keeping cova level stable still. Despite hawaii's current low case counts it remains to be seen if the state's leaders can revive tourism based economy while at the same time staving off a devastating rise in cases which would likely put the tourism business back on ice anyway depend on travel. Uk says but everyday day. I get comments from members in our community that continuing to bring visitors into hawaii during this time is really putting our community at risk. It's something that weighs very heavily on myself. And the mayor's every day as we see the virus counts increasing on the mainland.

No a minimum wage workers they don't have good health plans. They carry the burden of this, and the other part is the Theresa Stop Coming.

Why Are Macadamia Nuts So Expensive?
"First things first macadamia nuts are not actually ups. Yes I know it's ridiculous. It's right there in the main for goodness sake but much like Brazil L.. Nuts again what is it with. These misleading names. The Macadamia is in fact a seed and although they've become a signature staple of Hawaiian Agriculture Macadamia. His are actually native to Australia. We spoke with Glen Soko an economic development specialist with the Hawaii County Department of Research and development he explained leaned Macadamia. Nuts are originally from Australia but much of the early research breeding work quality development were done by the University of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. These cultivars are suited for the Hawaii. Climate and do not produce the same high quality nut when grown in foreign conditions cultivars is short for cultivated varieties and these are specific types of plants selected and cultivated by humans. In this case. The plant is a large bushy tree that starts producing macadamia nuts spy the time. It's about four or five years old. So how exactly did these Australia cultivars and up in Hawaii for that you can think. One William Purvis office. Who planted the first Macadamia tree on the Big Island in eighteen? Eighty one purpose didn't initially intend for the tree seeds to be a hit. He planted the trees as wind breaks as for the sugar cane fields. The plants were functional and also happens to be quite pretty but he didn't suspect they could bear such delectable and profitable. See it's about a decade later. One are Jordan planted some macadamia trees on Oahu. The trees that researchers think is the ancestor most of Hawaii's trees and the not quickly became a popular snack among businessmen who came to Hawaii to profit off of sugar plantations in the early nineteen hundreds. The Hawaiian Agricultural Experiment Station was established published to get new crops growing on islands since this newly established United States territory was relying almost exclusively on sugar following the collapse of the coffee market. In the nineteen twenties. The government offered a five year tax exemption on land that was used solely for Macadamia production. But most farmers were interested. That is until roasted it. BECA Damian that's started popping up in stores and consumers went wild demand finance went up and the number of trees planted for nut production more than doubled from nineteen eighteen thirty two to nineteen thirty. Eight sales slumped a bit after that. But by the Nineteen Fifties Hawaii was turning out macadamia goodies to stack fans throughout the world and major companies. Ladies were making a pretty penny off of them speaking of why are Macadamia so expensive while Macadamia is clearly have an interesting past. And they've tastes taste heavenly coated in thick layers of chocolate. Do they really merit they're often exorbitant price tag after all around twenty five dollars a pound. They're considered the most expensive have nuts in the world. So what's the deal. A bunch of factors go into the price but a lot of them. Come down to the fact that Macadamia can't be grown effectively. On the continental dental United States and shipping them in from Hawaii is costly and growing things in Hawaii is costly to begin with because it's a small archipelago that some three thousand miles title. That's nearly five thousand kilometers away from anything in two thousand. Eighteen Macadamia has made the news for a seventeen percent price. Increase which sacco attributed to Hawaii's fixed harvest acreage and a higher global demand. Furthermore Issaquah said it takes seven years for a Macadamia nut tree to produce a crop. Demand remains high and prices are up to a dollar twenty per pound despite this. There's tremendous pressure on the industry. The agricultural labor shortage continues and that's caused wages and benefit costs to increase invasive. Pests continue to affect the Orchard Health and production. The Hawaii land prices are so high. Hi Orchard Expansion is too costly and producers can't wait for seven years therefore the production acreage remained steady despite the increased demand for the nuts. Okay so that explains the cost but are they actually good for you. High fat foods used to be the most demonized of all kitchen staples basically because of a very effective and sort of insidious marketing campaign put out by the sugar industry but thanks to current research and slightly Leila systemic marketing hype such things as nuts oils and seeds are getting their due as healthy options.

Low in net carbohydrates and a good source of copper manganese and thion monounsaturated unsaturated fatty acids have been shown to lower. LDL cholesterol levels.
