Hi BD'ers sorry for the late report and a lot of things to do with the fish boat and most important Family duties.
Thanks Lois for the post of pics and taking the pics.
My friend Tim asked to go fishing along time ago but i had to get my house ready for my new baby. call him and told him if he could go on sat. :2gunsfiring_v1:
Left the harbor at a little past 5am and headed for co no takers so kept on going toward Kauai. 26 miles and water started to get bumpy so turn the boat back toward the middle. Get into the calm water and see a small bird pile and porpoise. As we get in we see another boat hook up and I tell Tim to watch the poles cause i think it going to go off,(fingers and toes crossed hahaha) and pop goes the center, Hanapaa fight on. Get fish in the boat and tell Tim to head back into the pile while i set lines and gill and gut the fish. We get back in and I again see the other boat hook up and on my left the birds and porpoise went nuts. Turn left and pop goes the outrigger,reel is screaming at about half spool pop goes the center again Hanapaa double alright. Fight both fish and get them in the boat and now we are both dead and I tell Tim to head strait in while i gill and gut both fish.
Fish went 172, 168, 160 gill and gut.
Congrats, Kaisha on a great catch and keeping the pressure on us since you guys always got the strikes first Great Job.
5O7C's for the hot lures and all the great help.
Good luck to all and Tight Lines and bloody decks thanks for reading.

Ryan and Tim,
Simply awesome; we were about 10 miles West of ya in another poproise school but with much different results (no bites). When we got back into the harbor we heard about 2 boats and 5 fish, way to go both to you and Guy (the other boat with 2)...

Awesome Catch, We were next to you at the washrack. We only managed to find a wayward marlin with someone else's hook still in the jaw. Looked liked a owner or jobu type with the solid stainless ring.
