Wow, guys. A couple weeks ago, Jared Zwerling mentioned something about his fellow Jared, Jared Jeffries, going on a fishing trip with Jeremy Lin this summer and I was like "cool!" or some other enthusiastic exclamation and Jared Z. was like "you ain't seen nothin' yet" or some other ominous reply, and that made me very curious. Here, it seems, is what Jared Z. was talking about. Jared J. is REALLY into fishing, guys. I compel you to read Jared Z.'s whole article, but here's a choice bit:
"I heard about it from a friend and saw the ad in a fishing mag. You flew in by a twin-engine, four-seater crop plane to a prison island called Coiba Island in the middle of Panama. And when you landed on Coiba Island, the Panamanian prisoners got you off of the plane. There were only about five prisoners left on the island. They got you off the plane because they could make a little money. Then, you take a boat to like a parks and recreation camp, where you could fish around Coiba National Park.
There's much more, including some wonderful photos, Jared J.'s list of top fishing spots, and some of his personal bests (a 750-pound black marlin!). It is amazing. You are amazing, Jared J. Thank you for this, Jared Z.
