Been waiting awhile for the wind to back off and Monday was looking good according to NOAA forecast with NE 10 and 4 ft seas. Sunday night NOAA upgraded the forecast for Kaiwi channel to 15kts.....a little breezy but waited too long so chanced em. Got in the water at 5:30 and hit the first knuckle of the banks just before 7:00am. Within minutes got my first strike and landed a 15lb Mahi....alrighty no bolohead! Fished the first knuckle area the entire morning and continued to get singe and double strikes through out the morning. Most strikes came while going up sea and being a little rough, I turned the boat down sea to fight the fish but lost a few in the process with the line going slack while making the turn( small disadvantage fishing solo in a small boat in bumpy water). Finished the day taking over 15 strikes, losing a few but managed to get 2 Mahis , 2 Onos and 4 shibis. I even had a 7' hammerhead shark take one of my Mahis and lost a small marlin that would have given me my first clean sweep! Can't complain....sure beats a day in the office!
