    Ahi fever a couple of weeks ago...2 days...nada. Thought we would give Waianae another chance on Saturday. Left boat harbor around 6:30 am with Kiwi and Bret Fee. Blasted to the thousand and set lines. Headed towards Kaena. About 7:15 the long outrigger comes down...Kiwi was sitting on the front of the boat totally oblivious to our hookup. After several attempts to get his attention while we were clearing the other lines...we get him back on the pole. 15-20 minutes later we had two gaffs in it and on the deck of the boat. Probably around 130 lbs? Not too remarkable except that it happened in the first hour on the water....Thought about heading back in but we decided that two would be cool. One more knock down...no more hook ups. Decided to head in around 11:30 am. Outside of S I heard a loud sound and thought I had run something over....ended up that something broke in the leg and the propeller wasn't spinning. Dead in the water! Called my neighbor Steve who was outside of us. He was on his way in so he said he would come over and give us a tow. About 10 minutes later he called back to tell me that we would have to wait a bit because they just had a double hook up while going 13 knots to get us. He landed both for 3 ahi on his boat. Towed us in (about 6 miles to harbor)....he said we can call him for a tow anytime from now on. We caught our ahi on a chrome jet head...purple silver over black. 9" lure with double 11-0 hooks.

    Jerry, Bret and Kiwi,
    Good goin' on the fish, bummer on the leg issue. Hope its an easy fix. Kiwi looks very HAPPY!!! Glad Steve was close by, (note to self) when all else fails run up the speed to 13 kts to get the bite.

    Cheers
    Pat

    Hey Jerry,
    Saw your boat at MI marine.....that is one big a$$ boat! Now I know why you can fish Hawaii Kai when the water is all buss! Hope the engine leg is not to badly broken and that you can get back on the water soon. With that boat, fishing Haleiwa would be like a walk in the park. Whoa, Guy was all huhu at me....I didn't realize that my bilge had all that junk left over from the day before.....I thought I did a good job cleaning up but oops! Anyways, hope to see you on the water soon! Happy 4th of July!

    Russel, we had a good laugh about that because we knew where the blood came from old luck for the rest of summer
    Cheers
