    Left the harbor around 0530 and ran the ledge to BP hoping to catch an ono but to no avail. Headed to BO & was surprised to see lots of boats leaving the buoy. Wondered why. Got kind of bumpy so ran the thousand towards Kaena Point. About 2-3 miles from BO, we nabbed a hebi and continued on the thousand to Nanakuli before switching course to the fifteen hundred (pocket area). Saw some birds in the far horizon and headed that way. As soon as we turned - hanapaa! The color of both skirted lures was gay-bob. Weigh-in & picture of lures tomorrow.

    The hebi went 24 lbs. & the ahi 110. Sure thought both were bigger - I blame that on old age.

    The metal jet head caught the hebi running behind the "dirty bird". The "Kodak Killer" got the ahi attached far back of the "Kaneohe Flyer".

    Awesome catch!!! Itching to go already, too bad I have to be in Japan visiting the in-laws for 2 weeks or else I'd pitch a tent in the truck bed and camp at the harbor...:rofl:

    Those are great boats, my buddy has a 16' cuddy Sea Chaser with twin Honda 30s. He is thinking about selling it to get a bigger one.

    Tight lines,
