    Well I finally got to Hawaii last Tuesday. I spent the week looking for houses. But thanks to Jagerhunchback and RPMS123 I finally got out into the Great Blue Pacific.

    Bobby picked me up from the hotel in Waikiki at around 12:00 am. We headed out and he showed me around to the local Marinas and The block on the way to the boat.
    We got to the boat and did the maintenance stuff and got everything ready to go.
    After a quick nap we headed out around 3:30.

    So we start out and everything was good. I drove the boat while Bobby started picking the lure set ups and setting the rod pattern. Then we get almost out to the entrance of the Harbor and I feel the waves start rolling the boat. Bobby comes back up and takes the helm. We get out past the last Harbor Buoy and it hit me out of no where. So I headed down to the deck to the . Then it was chumming time! I lost it, I finally knew what the hype was about the Hawaiian Waters. and why the boats are so important. The water wasn't even rough just big slow rollers about 4-5 feet high. After a little more chumming I finally got somewhat ok and managed to take the helm a few more times.

    We didn't catch anything, But I had a great time and it was a great learning experience. We went all the way to the BO buoy then took the thousand fathom line to the s buoy then the 40 fathom line back in to the harbor. We didn't even see any birds or mark any fish.

    Oh well I still had a great time and I couldn't get over how blue the water is out here. It's great and I love it can't wait to do it again soon. I will take some Dramamine though.....just in case...LOL

    Oh and I guess I have a new name for BD1!

    Thanks Bobby and Mike. You guys are Great!

    Here's what I do to avoid getting seasick:

    -- Bonine and two ginger capsules the night before.
    -- Bonine and two ginger capsules that morning.

    -- No breakfast. Just some soda crackers and water. Just enough to keep from feeling famished.

    -- A few more soda crackers and water when underway. Enough to avoid feeling hungry.

    -- No coffee. Nothing greasy.

    When I feel OK after a few hours, I can eat something else. Maybe have some coffee.

    Keep in mind that some of this is really psychological. In the heat of fighting fish there are very few who will stay "green".

    Welcome to the islands. Now that you're here you'll need to adapt the language. Ex. ChumBucket should be PaluBucket.
    Don't worry, once you get a fish it'll be all worth it and at least they're not calling you "Bacon and Eggs".

    Zip pack always fits the bill, or a couple musubis from 7-11. Nice and greasy.

    LOL!!! I can't wait to do it again. I will try the Bonine and ginger, but I don't think the
    Bud,s and Zippy's would work for me. I don't drink anymore and when I did drink I didn't drink Beer! Thanks for the Pointers though!

    At least We now have a place to live!
