    Picked Robert and his son Derek (first time for Derek) up at 4:20 (the best part of winter get to sleep in plus the boat was ready to go); pushed off around 5:40 and ran out to the pinnacle. Trolled around and out not much happening; around 11:30 heading back in from the outside the port corner takes off but unbuttons, I get down on the deck trying to entice another strike when the center goes, see a good sized spearfish jump and then heads for the horizon (sort of). Get everything set up reeling in the hebi when the port rigger takes off.

    Get the Hebi in the boat and then comes along a nice bull (interesting double).

    Get the mess cleaned up and make a big loop around when we see some birds off on the horizon; first signs of life (as far as visual, not discounting the fish in the box). As we get closer see some splashes, I get the gear on, clear one of the flat lines (sort of) and wait on the deck. It didn't take long. The stbd flat line went first then the port (I get to see that fish as the flat lines are close); the third flat line I sort of cleared; literally dangling in the water off the tower rocket launcher gets nailed right in front of my eyes (that fish was at gaffable distance when he grabbed that lure... insane). Pulled hooks on 2 and I had the pleasure of reeling in the stuck one.

    Cleaned up and headed back to the porpoise (Derek did a great job of keeping his eye on them during the battle). This time both corners went 1 stuck 1 didn't; Robert had the beast with attitude.

    This one took some time but well worth it.

    At this point we called it good and ran in...

    Days like this are the reasons I keep going back.

    Happy New Year everyone!!!

    May there be plenty of snapping rubber bands, exploding release clips and drags making very scary noises.

    Aloha,
    Pat

    A special thanks to Derek for helping out and getting some great pics!

    Pat, Congrats on an awesome catch! I think when the fish hear your boat coming, they come running (like a dinner bell)! The new year has already starting off fruitful...
    Tight lines!

    Pat,

    Good going on your catch. I'm afraid that you might have spoiled Derek, though.
