    Kaneohe Otaru....May 28***

    Headed out at first light towards LL and found some birds working just inside of the buoy. After getting ahead of the pile we looked back as Four lines hooked up. A couple other boats jumped into the action and started hooking up. Ended our day with an inside Ono! Great day in Kbay.

    Kaneohe Bay

    We headed out of Kaneohe around 0400 after hearing the trades were going to back down for a day. Turns out the winds and swell were sticking around awhile longer and it was slow going out to LL. At first light there was still plenty of texture on the water and decided we may as well drag lures...

    Aloha Nate, Keep putting in the time, talk to the guys at the harbor and share some stories. More importantly, enjoy the opportunity to be out fishing (brings good mana). We are all learning the signs to look for. A mentor of mine once said: "The only fishermen that don't lie are the birds."...

    Aloha Bd'ers! After a few months of being dry docked due to a slew of mechanical issues, our YF was finally ready for an inaugural run. We headed out of K-bay after hearing the bite was on. Although our hope was for a little kau kau on our shakedown, we were in for some good fishing. We...

    Penn International 80VSW (3) For Sale*****

    Aloha Terry, You do have a valid point. I haven't purchased the 130's yet & I'm not getting any younger. The VSW's have been good to us, if I can't get a decent price for them my thought was to keep them just in case the 130's prove to be over the top. It seems an investment into Shimano 130's...

    Kaneohe 3/17

    At least you were out on some nice water during the shakedown. We went the day after & took a big strike. With the 80 screaming for mercy, we cleared our lines and prepared for battle. Just as we thought it was beginning to tire out the line snapped! Licking our wounds, we continued the hunt and...

    3/20 Gaji Strikes Again

    Howzit Neil, Good grinds! The Ali'i Kai / Gaji combo is hard to beat! Don't tell "Shot" about the stink Bimini and keep him guessing! Maybe it'll scare some of the fish our way. Nice catch! CJ

  38. Kai330


    That rubbish line looked promising, although we ended up providing some surf for the occasional bird drifting on the pieces of foam. My daughter ended up with the camera this time (hold the fish this way, now that way.... Ok, cut em and let's grind!). We were stoked to finally have fish in the...

    The water was nice early in the morning, but when the winds picked up from the South it did get snotty. Just a heads up for you guys headed out today, a friend of mine said the bird piles were going off 15 miles NE of "Rabbit Island". Holding some Shibi Ko. CJ.
  40. Kai330


    After weeks of lousy weather, we headed out towards MM. With only one other boat there, we figured our chances were looking good. As we were making our turn for another pass by the buoy "snap" port outrigger goes (Gaji fish head). Blood on the deck! Worked the area for about an hour and decided...

    Aloha Alan, Hands down, awesome lures! Both Jack and Neil are accomplished fishermen. If there's a garage meeting in the near future, I'd definitely be interested. We have yet to bless the Ali'i Kai with an Ahi, maybe we could pick up a few of your recommended lures and finally get the monkey...
  47. Kai330


    Aloha Pat, I'll pass on the compliment to the "boss" & my daughter, they spend more time turning the fish to their best sides for the photo's. They have fun with it, but I get tired of "now turn it this way, now that way". We're always impressed with the Ahi you pull in! One of these days, we'll...
  48. Kai330


    Aloha guys, I've gotta give Jack credit for introducing / recommending the Gaji lures. After hearing him talk it up, we picked a couple up from Lois at 5Oceans7Seas. Ken, the lure is nicely balanced & weighted well ( slightly heavy), true craftsmanship in his lures and more importantly, if...
  49. Kai330


    Thanks Neil, it was a tough couple of weeks & no fishing! Finally blood in the boat! Thanks Patrick & Crazyboat, Gaji really makes some quality lures. 3 strikes on that lure with 2 in the cooler! I'll be adding more Gaji lures to the line up!
  50. Kai330


    Headed out early towards MM and picked up a nice size Otaru on a Gaji fish head. Mahi-Mahi were in the area & managed to pick up a few. Awesome day on the water! One random act of kindness at a time. CJ

    Buss in some ways has a point, but we've all had advice from experienced fishermen. Similar to Irunthedeck, I've been fishing since the 70's & without some guidance, the trial & error period would've been difficult. When a certain lure was difficult to find and in high demand before a...

    LL Buoy Shark.

    Headed out dark & early with the loyal deck-man Jack and Kyle. The action at LL was a little slow and the jigging had already started. We decided to break out the Japan made secret lures & try to pull something up. 5 minutes in, the center starts to sing lightly and Jack hooks up as well. As...

    We had a late start out of Kaneohe and decided to start out with U buoy. Earlier advice from crews warned us of several sharks "cockaroaching" at MM & LL. Just outside of the buoy the outrigger pops with a decent Mahi-Mahi. We picked up a couple and lost a couple at the gaff, but thats fishing...
  63. Kai330


    Once daylight broke & we realized there were War Ships all around us, figured the fish were going, going, gone! Worked a pile of dolphin on the inside & balla-head. Regardless of the lack of fish, we were blessed with another day on the water. Bam, "Shelly Girl" stopped all of us in our tracks...

    Kaneohe: A little slow.

    Beware of products ordered online:

    Most reputable suppliers indicate whether a product is simply available or out of stock.
