Another fun day on the water with my slaying buddy SlowPoke (Jeff). Head out a little early around 2:45 from K-bay. Made it out about 10 miles on that nice water and spot some night rubbish. We stop the boat and see a bunch of small debris in the water and one black ball buoy catching a little moonlight. We shine the lights but don't see anything, figure its worth a shot and chum a little as we idle around with an eye on the sounder. Nothing comes up but worth the chance at a night bite. Head out the rest of the way to where T should be... No blinking light and we start to get cranky. We hang around for about 30 minutes trying to contemplate a new play then we see the light. We are only 1/4 mile from it and we are confused but when we pull up it disappears again. We finally realize a fat Booby is sitting with its tail blocking the light. Now spirits are high and we start to chunk. tons of bait later and the sun is coming up and no blood on the deck. We decide to put the hammer down and look for greener pastures. We head straight out cruising at about 15 kts, looking for some rubbish that is holding. We spot a few pieces over the next hour but each time we set lines and nothing. We finally see a bigger piece (2x8 by 4 ft) and make a pass. about a hundred feet past and he take a knockdown on the stbd rigger. It comes in quick and we put a small ono in the bag. As we land the fish we see what looks like a superpile forming 1/3 mile out. We make a quick decision and head out that way. Pile is moving quick, but we finally get the lures in front of them and take a strike, then two and finally a third line drops. We make quick work and land three good size Aku. We swap out the lures for 5 inch and smaller and get back on them. Pile is moving about 1.5 miles after each knock down. Next pass we get in position and take a quad. All four come in the boat pretty easy and Jeff and I are all smiles. Setup and knockdowns continue for the next two hours gradually decreasing in frequency but the fish sizes are up and down. We finish this pile with 25 aku (a few were otaru) avg weight at the end of the day came to 12lbs. After all the fun, we decide to look at the gps and see where we were. What we saw took us a little by surprise as we travelled to about 22 miles NNE of LL. We decided it was time to head for home and hope for a surprise on the ride. We hammer at high speed for about and hour sitting on the bow looking for anything promising. We found one small aku pile and land a few 1 pounders and toss them back. Finally we get back a few miles from LL and Jeff spots a nice square cut log about 12"x12" by 8ft. We pass and nothing. We pass again... nothing. Finally we pull up and spot a few skittish mahi. We get back on the bait game and finally get some success. We land 4 in about 1/2 hour and decide we are burning daylight and ice. We head in looking for anything else on the inside, but nothing too promising. End of the day results 300lb otaru and 58lbs of mahi and one small ono. great day on the water. Looks like the mahi have been eating shrimp. Good luck out there guys. Also Thanks to the Guys at Aloha lures, we just stocked up on some 3 and 5 inch and they did the trick out there.
