    Picked up Robert at his house around 3:15, it hasn't been since early October has he been able to get out, hoping for a good day. Had to swing by work on the way, got down to the Kai'Nana around 4:20, got her set up and slid over to the loading dock for some fuel. Pushed off right around 5:30 (many big trailer boats getting set up), stayed at speed until just after 6. Just like last Sunday, PLENTY of bait on the recorder.

    At about 20 miles pass some debris, there was plenty to be had, the center takes off. While clearing lines a nice marlin starts to rear its ugly head, Robert is geared up, I finish clearing lines and then come around on the fish. Get everything good backing down on her (probably 250-300), and she just comes off. Bummer, but maybe not!!! Leader is pretty trashed so re-rig it and get it back out.

    At about 26-27 miles see the white underside of a birds wing WAY off in the distance and head that way, now starting to see more. Glass the area and see what looks like a decent splash??? As we get closer, confirm our suspicions (or maybe our wildest dreams), porpoise and plenty of working birds. As we get closer we try to determine their heading, just in case, Robert has it, I go get the GoPro on, first time I have ever turned it on, only had for 2 years now.

    In them for maybe 10 minutes when that so lovely sound of a number 64 rubber band breaking followed by that reel wrecking scream of the clicker!!! But wait it is only beginning, then another rubber band followed by the center release clip and the stbd rigger, CHIT!!! Do we really/reely want 4 on, too late now. The center almost immediately comes off, the other 3 are tight.

    One of the upsides, don't need to clear too many lines. Since Robert battled the marlin for awhile I gear up, while he gets everything else set up, get the first fish to the boat, what a PAIN in the azz. She just wouldn't give that last couple feet we needed to get a gaff in her. finally gaff her and get her on board. the other 2 are still tight.

    Robert your turn, get the second one to the boat, this one wasn't as bad at leader, number 2 on board. Pat get the gear back on, can't I just reel it in from the rod holder, NO you panzy. This is me talking to myself. Get the third fish gaffed and on board, damn that was fun and a little tiring.

    Set back up, Robert sets us on the heading the porpoise were moving, we get the 3 fish on ice. Get back in the tower see a splash, could it be, do we want it to be??? It's porpoise but its the cowboy kind (not the same bunch) these are paranoid schyzoids, can never get in them. OK keeping moving on.

    Around 1:30 I'm kicking back on the back deck Robert is determined to find that right pile; and wouldn't you know it. I look out the side of the boat and see plenty whites, Robert remember your up next... Sure enough it looks like the same pile, mark fish, see whites chasing bait, but we don't get bit in them. We still have a long way to go so we set a course for home and head that way. Just outside the 1000 the stbd corner goes screamin off, remember Robert you are up ;-). After a good solid run, line goes slack, check leader all chaffed up, must of been another good marlin.

    Thought that was you leaving the harbor just as I launched. Had thoughts of calling you but when I cleared the breakwater you were gone. Figured you were headed out farther than I wanted to go. Going to get in trouble catching ahi without the Captain aboard. Nice catch, looks like you're back on track where you left off last year.

    Awesome Pat,
    Congratulations,
    You always seem to find the fish.
    Haven't been on here for awhile or out on my boat, , busy working , but good to see that there's hope to catch fish considering a lot of my friends are white washing.

    Thanks Cary, hope you like your new electronics.

    Thanks Steve, right place right time, had we got that marlin, probably would have never found the porpoise.

    Thanks Steven, you should have called, if you got VHF we stay on 68 there also. Nerlie was happy for us.

    Thanks Dave, its time to dust off the boat and get her ready, I see Ahi Fever is filling up.

    Thanks Chad.

    Thanks Todd, glad to see you back.

    Thanks Capt Russ, talk about exciting.

    Thank you sir, had 2 7"'rs in the water also never got bit, sure do like the heads.
