    Went today on the west side. Left harbor at about 7am Ran bouys and headed down to Kaanea Point. We had not 1 strike. Saw a small kine bird pile but nothing. Decieded to hit R bouy and do a couple circles around. About 2 miles from it the outrigger went boom and Hanapaa 52 pounder!!

    He hit the 4 inch lure in the 3 lure spread. Nothing was working so decided to run a 4" 5" and 7". When nothing works try anything, Right? It has a 60 pound leader to the 100lbs line on my 9/0's. This 4 inch lure is my best weapon in the box. No matter what happens this lure is always in the spread and gets hit mostly all the time. If fish are around hey WILL hit this lure.
