    My sister rarely comes fishing with us but she picked a good day to take her chances. She was headed to the RBI Softball World Series in Minnesota and trying to prevent jet lag she wanted to do something early in the morning. We set out of Kawaihae Harbor at 5:30 and took a run up towards black point. We didn't see any action there so we headed south back towards the harbor. At 7:30 the short corner goes off right as we pass on the outside of the red bouy. The fish took a nice run even with a one pound lead. I thought to myself this fish may have some weight. But oh boy was I surprised when that fish turned broadside towards the boat...

    What was wrong with the reel? Why was the rod still in the rod holder?

    Nothings wrong with the reel it's just the way most of us fight fish in hawaii. It's probably cause while we enjoy the sport we really enjoy eating the fish, so anything to get the blood in the box.

    Cause it was a bent but and we can't afford to put a fighting chair or own a fancy harness. For some of us here in Hawaii the sport comes when we put blood on the deck whether it be to pay for our gas, eat at home, or share our catch with our friends and family. And to further prove that point, even after we saw those other ono we went straight into the harbor knowing that there was more fish out there...

    Looked like at least 3 more. Makes you wonder how many are really around when you catch one.
