Dave Toriumi has fished for fun most of his life, but is now running his own boat as a commercial fisherman off the coast of California. He owns the 22-foot Pioneer and uses hook-and-line gear to go after king salmon, halibut, seabass, lingcod and sand dabs. Some people in Watsonville may recognize his name from Toriumi Auto Repair, a shop his dad owns where he has worked as a mechanic. He also has a mobile auto shop, but his passion is for being out on the ocean. “I like the lifestyle of a fisherman,” he said. “There’s no traffic, no boss, and a freedom out there that’s hard to find on land.” And this connection is being passed on to the next generation. His son, River Robert Toriumi's, first word was “boat.”
