    Haven't been fishing too much this past winter, due to abundant surf and work commitments, but have managed to get out the past two weekends and kick some of the rust off.

    Left Kaneohe at sunrise and caught cracks on the way out, as usual. Get out off the 500, start noticing some birdies flying around. Head towards the pile and find a nice piece of rope floating. Set up to bait and all kine mahi show up behind the boat, but they're covered by an impenetrable hagi shell :Exploding_Smiley:. Can't get a bait past em, so we troll for a few pieces, before moving on.

    Lots of birds/piles all day long, mostly smaller mahis, carbon copies of the ones in NavyAirCrew's report. White/Brown boobies were noticeably absent from all the piles that held small mahi. Ended up with about a dozen pieces, could have had a lot more.

    Anyone know any tricks to get past the Wall'O'Hagis? Have had this problem a couple times before, always with smaller size mahis. It drives me bonkers looking at all those mahi and being unable to get a bait to em.

    Looking really good out there, let's hope this is a start to a great season!

    Dude, when they got tight lips.. i throw out my tide bottle... that'll get one of de buggahs.. small @$$ hook inside a chunk of bait, no can see em... swallow whole then start swimming.. sooner or later, it figures out gotta floatation device attached to it... then you watch it go ape sh!t... once it calms down, it swims with the school.. then you got a permanent marker of them... keep that in your bag o tricks... works everytime for me... just no mention it much... :)

    John,

    I was expecting an ahi report, good goin' on the mahi's. I've seen a charlie pull the mahis away long enough to get a bait to 1 or 2 the problem is you gotta have a charlie.

    Normally I try Palu plenny in one area then run away from um...once I get a little bit away I shut down the engine for try keep it quiet & drift a little while picking a few off. Tried to use lead to get um down but it only worked a couple times.

    its a type of triggerfish I believe. They like to steal baits/chum before the target fish get to it

    It's about time you got back out there John-rippin' lips as usual. Don't worry I should be back out on the water soon and all the hagi East of Australia usually wait by the dock for my boat to hit the water so they shouldn't bother you guys....

    Paul,

    An aku/shibi (dead) dragged behind the boat large enough that an average sized mahi can't eat it, acts as a great teaser. Sometimes its the only way to turn the fish on. Some guys will drag it with a hook in it just in case a larger model jumps on it. I am sure there are other variations as well.

    "Charlie" the tuna.
