Meet Shrek — The Man Behind The Noob Spearo Podcast

Shrek from the Noob Spearo Podcast joins us today to talk about his love for spearfishing, what it’s been like to interview so many legends, and what he wishes every spearo would consider.

If you’re a spearo then there’s a high likelihood that you’ve listened to the Noob Spearo podcast. Shrek is the host and does a fantastic job interviewing legends in the community…but I’ve yet to hear someone do a deep dive and interview him.

So if you’re a spearo, you’re in for a treat. Get to meet the man behind your favorite

Jon Stenstrom
Founder & Angler
Jon Stenstrom is a fishing and spearfishing enthusiast. He's been fishing since he was 5 years old in the backcountry of Yosemite for trout and in the surf near his home in SoCal. Over the past 4 years, he's been spearfishing up and down the coast of California. He started Cast and Spear to help inspire others to get outside and chase their dream fish. Notable catches include spearing a 65-pound white sea bass, large grouper, and yellowtail down in Baja. When he's not in the water, he's usually fishing from his Gregor Baja aluminum boat or inflatable Takacat catamaran.
