Brah, I'd take all the BS if I had a catch like that!
Howzit Jimmie, I can take a look at your outriggers & see what we can do. Right now I'm making some custom fiberglass gaffs for someone. PM me.
Nice to see the fish is still around....great catch & ono eats!
Welcome to BD, I've seen you pics on POP & Hana pa'a websites....welcome to da BIG BOYS! Looking foward to seeing your catches in the future!
Best bet, go to NOAA Marine weather & look for the offshore buoy wave heights where you plan to go.
Howzit Russ...Water & Gas will not separate, you would see the fuel "floating" on the water which is more dense....but ethanol (alcohol) will...
I have a Fenwick 30lb class rod with Aftco roller guides & tip top. $50.00 if interested.
Doesn't look like this one is going away, https://www.countmyfish.noaa.gov/

Any of you BDers have reports from the windward side today...would appreciate any reports back...Mahalo.
Welcome to the Islands & another BD user, I also live in Kailua so if you need any help with gear or your boat PM me, Aloha.
Great report...nice pics, hopefully I'll be out there to.
Welcome to BD's Ryan, nice catch.....I'm the same way, only can "WISH to FISH" for now.
SASHIMI TIME! Great catch AJ, I'll bet that was fun on the spinner!
ALRIGHT....good to see some of money being used to benefit some of the fishermen.
Still catching um Capt Don....good going brah!
I think you're mistaken....Joe's shop is "5 Oceans 7 Seas"....Ken's is "Island Rod Wrap" but they do have the same last names.
Easy, get both. Most local fishing are using CB channel 23 to communicate, this was before VHF radio's was made & kinda "stuck" with us locals....
Mahalo Mike for surfing the sites & getting Hawaii's NEW FORUM, FISHING & CLASSIFIED threads seperated.....way to go!:gaygroup:
Hey BDer's, heres some protection I've tried & used for years for saltwater enviroments when overhauling my reels & mounting the reel to the rod....
She's to the left.:eyepoppin
:idiot: Is this the sign????
Great idea Mike, clears out the clutter of sales & other subjects not related to fish reports. I hope they can set us up! How's about it Surfdoc?
Yeah, finally another fishing program from the Islands & with Cindy Paliracio as a Host...WOW!
Interesting...filet & release? The bones?
Wrapping NO! Hardware "ah dah"...look at the pulleys, release clips & stainless rings!
I believe the O'io love to eat crusteans la dat(crab, shrimp, sand turtles, etc.) but possibly would also eat small kine Ika & Tako.
Here's the Pics!
IS IT STILL ON????????????
Outriggers are done!!!!!!!!! Will have pictures soon.
Still working on um....still waiting for some of the hardware. I will post the pics soon.
I heard that the FAD program was supported by funds received from fishermen/boaters from licensing and so forth.....maybe the "Gov" taking the...
Couple of catches for my new boat.
When I purchased my Force 21, I actually wanted the 18 first but Frank & Jim at Force Marine convinced me to purchase the 21 for better ride &...
You go guys...awesome story and NICE CATCH!
Is it postponed for another weekend??????
I've been making my own poles (spinners, ulua & whipping) for over twenty years & wrapped 2 different sets of outriggers for my boats (one 18ft &...
Das him... He followed me out from Heeia that day, what a day! I'll see him today he bought a "brand new gaff" I made for him...I'll pass the Aloha.
:imdumb:See the story in this months Hawaii Fishing News "Tail Tales".
I called Randall @ the phone number posted by Cap Don & he said yes.
Were you registered in the tournament?
Way to go Capt Clay....my wife loves menpachi for her "boullaise" stock! Excellent eating!
Aloha Capt Don, can't join the tournament due to a knee injury but I would like to check out the "weigh in" where and when? Mahalo, Glenn
Nice "bully"....mahalo for the report & welcome to BD's.
That's a BIG Alligator man...almost as big as the Mahi!
Aloha Russ, thanks for the report on the experience you had on your outtings. Ono's are excellent eating(cooked or raw!), but the down side is the...

Why to stick it out Capt. Clay....mahalo for the report.
Nice catch and thanks for the report brah!
Aloha BD Big Kahuna's, I got the message.....Mahalo for the quick reply. Keep a tight line, Glenn.
Hey Surfdoc, I ordered up stickers and a T-shirt from BD....got the stickers( thru US postal) but not the T-shirt. Also paid $19.64 for SHIPPING....

Nice fish, marlins are always exciting to watch and catch. Congrats on your first one.
I had bought a couple of these rods from Donald in Hi Kai, they served their purpose for the time I had them....but ended up replacing the butts...
Welcome home Mike......Congats for your medal & Mahalo to all of the guys & gals for protecting our country. Nothing like the tranquil ocean, GO...
Great Catch! Great Crew! Congrats Capt. Don, it's always good to get a wake up call from the "screamin reel!"
Way to load um up Steve! Those are good sized Mahi's.
Good going guys....thanks for the post!
The way I learned from my old Sensei was to break one open at the spot first (Long Black Spiny one's) and see if get "meat" (orangy color), if o.k...
Way to go Clay, that's the lure head to use for those toothed "plastic buster" fish! Glad to here it works!
Howzit Kyle, don't know just yet...still playing with the "senstivity" settings. I'll need a clear "malie" day to see the outcome. Will let you...
Scott looks like you turned a great day for fishing(or should I say catching). Thanks for the post & pics.
Mahalo for the compliments....I have two 38 gal. tanks (76 total) & burn about 2 - 2.5 gals @ 8kts.
YOU DA MAN! Good catch !
Welcome....only place I know that customizes trailers is Spectrum, PRICEY!

Bradda's you should also have him stick a finger down his throat to YACK OUT any other yellow things he may have swallowed....if he's not...
Great catch & great pictures Pat!
Capt Clay is giving great advice, a big factor is also boat size & wake produced. What may work for one, may NOT work for another.
Left Hi Kai 7 am Saturday & headed to Molokai, no action crossing Kaiwi. Spent night at Hale'olono & headed to Lanaiin the am, landed the boats'...
THATS A BIG BULLY!
I have noticed this only after the ahi's arrive at the island, both on west & north sides of Oahu.
Aloha Bil, welcome to BD!
Good going Chuck on landing a good sized Mahi, keep the lines tight! May the Force be with you!
More lines in the water = more choices of lure sizes & colors. I run 5 poles/reels (two riggers, two corners & one center) & 2 handlines (for kau...
Twin hulls are a different animal and will not handle the same as monohulls as previously stated by very experienced boaters, the question would...
Girls first...fish after!
Another good tool to use instead of a match or lighter is a mini butane soldering iron so the "live end" of the leader won't get heated by the flame.
What a great catch AJ...how was the water yesterday?
Unreal day Jason, I'd rather have an Ahi myself.
Aloha Ryan, If you haven't navigated K-Bay yet.... be careful. Markers are few and far between and lots of unseen reefs. A good plotter is a must!
I 'm sorry to read about your loss...will keep an eye and ear for anybody trying to unload your rods & reels and hope they can catch that A--hole(s).
Good going Brock...great catch for the both of you!
Newer diesels burns very clean & much more efficient with the computor injected systems. I have a Volvo D3 in my boat & love it. Trolling at 7 to...
Your right Steve..Otaru (pronounced Oh ta du) meaning "Big Brother" in japanese.
Great catch for going solo guy!
Right on bradda! So the yellow guys are still around.
