Beneath the pristine waters of Hawaii, ancient volcanoes have forged steep underwater cliffs, resulting in the best deep-sea fishing in the world. For centuries, generations of Hawaiians have caught these monster fish from small, hand-made canoes, using nothing more than a fishing pole and their bare hands.

Brand new series, Pacific Warriors, follows a rare breed of men and women - armed with just a sea kayak – who are re-inventing this ancient art, and risking their lives to catch 100-plus pounds of fish. One fresh catch can reel in $1,500 or more, but big rewards bring stiff competition.
