    Including Tuesday, the last 4 trips we have been able to find the porpoise (in varying degrees of activity), mostly on the way home, Tuesday was no different, other than the end result.

    Got up at 1:30, no moon is why, and when the captain (Nerlie) is goin' we are tryin for some night time stuff. The akule were hard and didn't think the menpachi would be good due to the swell, I was wrong; ran back in to our sweet spot (off Makaha) around 4:45 and was very pleased w/ the results, got probably 18 nice ones.

    Ran out to R and caught some small akus just in case we find some debris and then ran out to the 1000 and went a trollin'. Big piles of TINY akus outside the 1000, yes the purple softhead was out. No bites there so we continued on w/ our quest. Thinkin' if nothing else we should be in around the akus for the afternoon tide change 4:45pm.

    On our way back in around 1:30 Nerlie see some birds, so we head over to them. See a few matoris working and porpoise, I'm thinking well at least I know what we are doing this afternoon (stayin' w/ the porpoise).

    The pile is spread out with pockets of matoris showing interest, seen this before in the recent past. About 45 minutes into the endeavor the stbd riggers goes and boy does it, a good 400 yds of line in the water and still goin when the line breaks (boat is out of gear). So lost one of my favorite BMF lures and also the line cut off the corner, which was G's 9" G-spot. Yes I was disappointed, I just changed that line about 1 month ago.

    To keep this from getting too long, over the next 90 minutes we had 5 more misses, so at this point we are 0 for 6 WOW, really bad.

    Finally the stbd rigger goes again and we get this one, this boy was stubborn, which made it that much more enjoyable.

    Unreal how consistent you are, good going. Captain looks happy! Played that same small akus on the 1000 to the pinnacle on saturday with no results. Was that you fueling up on saturday when I got in? Was going to try keehi this weekend but maybe you've changed my mind.Got a slight fever again.

    Pat,

    Nice freakin' work! I got to tell you... since joining BD and reading great postings like yours I have been schooled in all kinds of great fishin' knowledge that would have cost me hunderds of man hours and thousands of gallons of fuel to obtain. Thanks to guys like you I am not just out wandering around. I love this forum. Thanks!

    Pat and Nerlie, seems like it's been too long since we seen a post with the both of you. Bummer on the lost lure but I'm sure that ahi that you landed makes up for it. Nice pics and thanks for showing your weapons of choice.

    Thanks Steven, it was the Kai'Nana, fueled up, then went back over to the slip for oil changes and some other minor maint. Good luck where ever you head.

    Thanks Eric, tell Mike (Tuia) he should of stayed w/ the porpoise.

    Thanks Jimmy, we probably have spent over a dozen hours in the porpoise the last 4 trips.

    Thanks Capt. Pete, I as well have learned plenty from this site.

    Thanks Skip, so I broke off 2 fish and the 4 others just came off almost immediately. I was pretty nutted up fighting the last fish, just prayin' we got him. Got the prayer answered.

    Thanks Darren, actually lost 3 lures, 2 to fish (1 is somewhat explainable because of the lighter line) 1 to cut off from the rigger line cutting thru the corner line. Ouchie, 2 BMF and 1 Tsutomu.

    Thanks Jonny, not sure they were all ahi, but very good chance. Those lures all got bit that day.

    Thanks MD.

    Thanks Brian

    Thanks Vinh.

    Thanks Randy, lucky Nerlie saw the birds and then being there when they decided to chew...

    Thanks.

    Thanks Spencer.

    Thanks Bill, I hope you get a chance to...

    Thanks Jake, are you going to get a pass to get back on the water any time soon?

    Thanks Ed, maybe see you this weekend.

    Small kine bloody deck.
