    Kamihara

    Da reel man - The boat featured in the pictures I posted are not jet boats, just plain old shaft and prop. Single or dual diesel. The designers are not a US company, channel islands i think. The seafoam green kamihara is all paddle power at the moment. Got no engine. Hard for test in that...

    Massachusetts fishermen snare 881-pound tuna, feds take it

    Fuk.. that licks dirty balls, but the captain did it right by telling the truth. And rules are clear, it happened as it should of. At least NOAA is not out in the Hamptons ordering 5500.00 dinners like finance :shithappens: bags.

    How do you preserve your catch?

    My uncle taught me this process. Plenty of ice, blown <shave ice style if you can get it, like crushed ice from the machine in your ice box> x2 for what you think you could be bringing home. 150 pounds of fish needs around 300 pounds of ice for restaurant quality> for short day trips can get...

    What fish are eating/ Stomach contents

    I have been talking story with a marine biologist with the offshore fisheries and management center. Ahi during breeding season are eating everything that presents a potential meal to sustain breeding efforts. In his opinion there is no hatch matching for breeding Ahi in Hawaiian waters.

    Lure spread and a new way of thinking

    Bunching your spread together I believe is a relatively new concept to most single lure fishermen. Obviously I'm not reinventing the wheel here. All the techniques I employ were taught to me by someone. All I did was put them together and share what works for me in Hawaiian waters.

    grander007, Never seen a spear fish but have seen 15 pound mahi more then once. Marlin can pretty much eat anything they want.

    What fish are eating/ Stomach contents

    Margo, Good eye they are called Litopenaeus stylirostris aka Pacific blue shrimp. Brought to Hawaii with 1 other species in 60's and 70's from south america for aqua culture. They escaped, and now there are resident colonies. Along with Pacific white shrimp. Thank you for the post

    Morris, You can keep mahi from jumping if you thumb your spool, put it free spool let some line out under control until it settle's down, take it out of free spool keep its head in the water and bring it in. From my experience mahi generally want to jump when their heads are close to the...

    Lure spread and a new way of thinking

    Bnaks, Actually it's surprisingly simple. The dredges are under water but neither the spreader bars or dredges have hooks. I throttle up when I get a strike not long 5 to 6 sec puts a little line out, gives me time to figure out what just hit and what I want to do. Mahi leave it on keep...

    Lure spread and a new way of thinking

    Grander007, I think it is a little hard to understand because of the 2 dimensional aspect of the diagram. The lures and spreader bars are not connected. My last trip out was 35 hours. I had 5 marlin strikes landed 2, both smaller then 275. I did have 1 of them attack the toad pretty hard, but...

    Feds want a law to save the billfish

    I really hope they dont pass that bill. This is why I don’t vote. Don't get me wrong, I am all for conservation. Which is why I tag and release all marlin I catch during their breeding season, however marlin make up 30% of my commercial income. Smoking a 300 pound fish is not easy either...
