Got another late start....dropped in the water at 10:00am and headed for the Banks. Kinda disappointed with the lack of birds, flat water and lack of strikes. As soon as I got on to the Banks I took my first strike, a 10-12lb. mahi that ripped off before getting into the boat. Oh well, I'm thinking still early...no worries! Soon after, same outrigger comes down, small kine knockdown, ends up being a 3lb. Barracuda...s**t...let em go. Not bad, at least small kine action, thinking the best is yet to come! Took another strike, again on the same lure but no hook up. There was no more love for me on the banks so I turned back and headed harbor. Somewhere about the mid-channel (6 miles from the harbor) found some nice current lines and took another solid wack on the outrigger but s**t rubba hook action! Oh well, now its almost 5:00pm and I am looking at a big bolohead day - no ways ...gotta play the ledge for that mercy bite! I changed out my lures and put out the "Ono" menu and start my truck down the 40 fathom toward Kahala. No more than 15 minutes later my two outriggers pops and "hanapa'a"... double! Hurray!!!! I end up with a a pair of decent sized Mahis and this mercy bite saves the day! I got back to the harbor at 5:45pm and just happy to have caught something today. Not a whole lot to show for the day (especially when some other guys still slaying the fish)..must have not gone to the right spot.
