Howzit Gang,

Went out yesterday. Left Sand Island at 5:00. Get to HH and see some birds starting to work. Follow them towards BO. 3 miles from HH and long stinger takes off (9" Blue Tsutomo - been our best lure lately by far).

45 minutes later land my first Ahi ever. Super stoked! Nothing rest of day...back in harbor by 3:00. Good to meet Al and Ryan at the washdown.

Aloha,
JD

JD,
Congrats on your first Ahi! Better yet, you caught one during a time when there are not many around. Enjoy the fruits of our labor.....love that sashimi, poke, spicy tuna, etc..! Go get some more!
