I hear that but there are still some good ones, and the locations he goes to are quite interesting. I don't know what season it was but did you see the tieman? one they were just running recently where he was in china?? Holy shit those fish are AWESOME.
Where i used to live in the eastern Caribbean some guys i know when out in little wooden fishing boats and harpooned a 45 foot sperm whale; non of those fancy Japanese harpoons either; old school wooden harpoons; crazy shit. legally allowed to get two whales a year too due to indigenous habits; only place in the world where you can whale legally(except BC/PNW of course)
