    Aloha from Lahaina Harbor, Maui, Hawaii. Only a few marlin were caught this past month but the mahis are still biting. There have also been a few tunas and onos around.

    Some bigger mahis have found their way to Maui's waters. Stacie from California caught a 30 lb cow.

    Molokai can be a great place to get a mixed bag of fish.

    These Arizona residents swapped their golf clubs for fishing rods. Instead of playing 18 holes, they reeled in 18 mahis and even had a marlin bite.
    [​IMG]
    Light winds and hungry fish made for a great day on the water.

    These newlyweds had fun catching a few mahis.

    Shortbill spearfish are trophy fish, especially when they weigh over 50 lbs.
    [​IMG]
    The mahi bite has been fairly consistent for months. Most of those fish were small, but more quality mahis are starting to show up.
    [​IMG]
    The smallest guy caught the biggest fish.
    [​IMG]
    Five mahis for five anglers. You could say that they caught the perfect amount of fish.
    [​IMG]
    A single trolling bite resulted in numerous fish. One mahi grabbed a lure and others in the open school ate drop back opelus.
    [​IMG]
    Stopping to catch bait paid off when these mahis inhaled live opelus.
    [​IMG]
    These boys got lucky and found a piece of floating debris that was surrounded by fish.
    [​IMG]
    Here's some more mahis from a different camera angle.
    [​IMG]
    That mahi managed to choke down an entire live opelu.
    [​IMG]
    The action didn't last long, but the anglers emerged from the flurry with a few fish.
    [​IMG]
    These dads woke up in the middle of night. Rather than soothe a crying child, they went fishing and scored some mahis.
    [​IMG]
    A quadruple mahi bite had all these anglers hooked up at the same time. They finished the day with 4 more mahis and an ono.
    [​IMG]
    Cloudy skies and a little rain certainly didn't slow down the bite.
    [​IMG]
    The biggest mahi weighed 46 lbs and the other ones don't look small in comparison. That's a great day.


    Thanks for taking a look at this Start Me Up fishing report.


    Tight lines,
    Jonny

    The most impressive fish is that cane knife that managed to get a whole opelu down, that's determination right there!
