    Originally we (Nerlie and I) were going to go for Akule; but with the weather a little iffy we chose not to. Pushed off around 5am and even though the word was, the "ledge was dead" we headed up there anyways ("loose money"). Made one pass, then ended up at V king buster screamer (little rod), pulled hook, another pass another fish, break a 15# shibi off at the boat (very light leader). Nuff already.

    Run out and set up on the 1000, not much after get this little gem... nice pleasant surprise.

    Grind 'um tonight. Went outside, caught some 3-4# akus in a couple different piles. On the way back in had a double in the blind, 1 pulled right away the other one was running pretty good and the just came off, your guess is as good as mine as what they were. No bill racks no teath marks.

    Got into the harbor JUST in time (4ish), there was a very spooky electrical storm with plenty cloud to ground strikes right in the vacinity. Easy washing down the boat.

    Till next time...
    Cheers

    looks like you have everything dialed in now pat, just waiting for ahi season to crash down.

    Nice fat one Pat. Glad you had at least a little action, better than we did Saturday. Nice to talk to you at the pier. I think maybe we'll try small stuff this weekend, too.

    pat,
    stay away from the lightning and stay safe! we saw a waterspout about 1/2 mile away from the boat a couple of years ago - very scary looking at base through binos...

    tight lines,

    That's one nice fat bugga Pat. I too found no love on the ledge Saturday so headed out past V then got a lucky mahi. Better luck next time.

    That's a fat aku. There seems to be quite a few around. Glad to hear that you beat the weather. Gotta love when the rain washes down the boat.

    Thanks Mike, only many more trips will tell... Man I am such a BD junkie!

    Thanks Steven, it was nice meeting you as well, sometimes humbug to pull over to the loading dock to fuel up. We should have made a few more passes on V we were the only ones there.

    Thanks Joe, the boat is pretty good to go, now we just gotta run over the fish.

    Yeah we were paying very close attention to the weather had it moved further NW we would have cleared lines and ran in.

    Thanks Dean, yeah we have an event this weekend so the fish will get put to good use.

    Thanks Jonny for all the above...

    Thanks Will, and quite the light show it was. I believe the news reported 41,000 lighting strikes in a 30 hour period. That is incomprehensible to me.

    Cheers
    Pat

    Perfect for some sliced sweet onions, green onions, shoyu mix, and poi.
    Good going Capt. Pat and Nerlie.
    Maybe the Ahi will stuck itself better next time.
    Aloha,

    Nice otaru, Pat! Good one!

    Glad you were able to beat that storm into town. That was a wicked one....with more than 15,000 lightning strikes in one night.

    Thanks Stoney, it was the bomb.

    Thanks
