    Aloha everyone, just thought I'd share an older segment of fishing aboard the Hallelujah Hou with a few friends. We were out trying to catch fish for my grandson's first birthday luau. The girl (Tammy) in the pix was her first time out fishing, so she had a lot of firsts that morning. Matt Yamashita, (cameraman) and Josh Pastrana rounded out the crew. All in all, a very successful outing, enjoy.

    Yup, reel was a Tiagra 30, not the wide, with 50 lb test line. Remember was trying to catch aku and shibi for a luau, didn't expect a big ahi to bite, kinda tricky handlining small line like that, but guess it proves that it can be done if you take your time. Guess it was just meant to be. A real blessing to say the least.

    I used to run only 50's and 30's but upgraded to 50's and 80's now, mainly jus for the charter's sake, I don't even own a 130. I never really go looking for a big Marlin, just happy to catch Mahi and Aku's, stuff that I like to eat. I still use the 30's a lot cause they're really light and easy to handle. Guess you just gotta have the light tackle mentality and go for the fun and sport of it all. Did upgrade to some lighter rods to match the 30's too. I use braid backing too, so I have more capacity than if just using mono line.

    Right on Captain Clay, same here in Kawaihae, we use 50's for Ono's and Mahi's. Been lucky in the past and caught some big Ahi in Ono Lane on the 50's, it seems like the 50's never have the "guts" to lift the Ahi up the last 25-30 feet. Always end up handlining too.

    I was curious about how the 30's handle. Just recently down sized to a 13' boat. I was thinking about getting a 30 to run down the center of my spread.
