4/14- 4/15 Good Fun
Sorry for the late report. Been super busy working late and a bunch of other things going on.
Headed out towards Kaena just like everyone else and their mother . I guess everyone got the same report that I got that there were big shibi on the 40. Did one pass through the area and decided to head straight out. On the way out we luck out and snagged a 15lb Kawakawa. We keep heading past where CO used to be and see some birds ahead. Get into the birds with 2 other boats and start to pick up some small yellow fin, kind of on the small side so throw them back and continue to play the birds. After a little while birds keep moving out with everyone else in tow.
Out of the corner of his eye Ahab spots a parachute in the water. Makes a fast turn and all 5 poles go. Boat 5 big eye shibi in the 10-20 range. Everyone else kept heading out with the birds and we had the parachute all to our selves for a while. Only me and Ahab so guess who had to do all the work while someone barked orders from the bridge .
3 hours later and the ice is starting to run low so we decide its time to head back.
We lucked out and got
412lbs of big eye
97lbs of Mahi
22lbs of Ono
36lbs of Aku
Not to bad for busting my a$$ for 3 hours.
The only down fall is that I only got a single angle video with the gopro of 2 hours of straight action. So hopefully i can turn it in to something for everyone to enjoy.
We get to Koolina first thing in the morning with the plan to go look for the parachute one more time. This time at least we got crew since Colby came. Load up a butt load of ice and head out. Long story short get 20+ miles outside of Kaena and cant find a thing, not even a bird. Get beat up for a while and decide to come in a run the inside.
Ended up picking up
In all was a awesome weekend and will make some awesome memories for me and the old man.
Enjoy the PICS...
Got a butt load more awesome pics but that's enough fish Porn for now.Never Leave Fish To Find Fish...

Hey Nick and Capt. Ahab,
Wow!! You guys have been cleaning up on your last two trips! Way to go with all the shibis and nice mixed bag of Mahis, Ono, Akus and hebi making for a very productive weekend on the water! With all that action coming out of Waianae I quess I better start getting my a$$ out there and try catch some fish before its all gone. Looks like one of the best Mahimahi seasons on the West side that I can remember! BTW, great pics!
