    Best day yet!

    On Sunday, we went out to try our luck for the Ahi that have been biting on the westside. We left Campbell boat harbor at 5:30am and headed out to the 1000 where I heard boats were picking up Ahi. We ran from Kahe to the Pocket to the pinnacle, but nothing!! People told me the bite was very...

    Can I come?

    “Can I come if there’s room for me?” was what my wife asked me. She has been on the boat a few times and we never caught anything. She thought she was the jinx on the boat. I told her there’s always room for you! Our initial plans were to go out east, but heard there...

    Mission Impossible

    After going white wash for a while, we finally broke that streak and now have been on new Tuna Roll! We headed out on Thursday to the same spot we caught our Ahi on Sunday to find a bird pile with Ahi bustin out of the water! We take a pass and take a double knock down, but no screaming reels...

    So we finally broke the one fish curse! We've been going out and managing to catch one good fish and then we're done. This past Sunday was no epic fishing day with strong winds, rain and bumpy seas. We made it out to the 1000 and was looking for birds. We made a pass by the buoy and got a...

    Long day!

    Sun comes up a little earlier nowadays and it felt like we got a late start on Sunday but we were on the water by 6:30am. Ran out to the 1000 where the swells were big and winds were blowing a little stronger than 5-10 mph forecasted. Ran into a bird pile and never get any knock downs. After a...

    Day two in the chase of an Ahi was another learning experience. We started the day out exactly as Friday 13th. Hooked two akus in the bird pile and then ran into the same school of Ahi and lost it due to a bad swivel knot! Line came back curly tailed! This Ahi didn't fight like a normal one...

    Mercury Motors

    What your opinion on these motors? I noticed lots of boats come with Mercury Motors, but then I hear horror stories about servicing and diagnostics. I'm looking to buy a new boat , but don't want to be stuck with a motor nobody works on. Thanks for your input!
