Took vacation from work today and decided to go fishing with my neighbor, Jonah. 5 minutes after setting our lines we took a double strike and landed two Onos. On the way to Makapuu we picked up a small mahimhahi. Without getting any more strikes for the next 2 hours we decided to try our luck at deep bottom fishing. After losing a couple we finally caught a nice pair of 6 lb

Russell and Jonah,
Good goin' on the mixed bag, doubles 5 minutes after setting lines certainly takes the pressure off.

Cheers

Awesome catch I'd be thrilled!!
Nate, up until just recently the fishing has been slow. I started getting reports from friends that the fishing picked up a notch out of Hi Kai and so
with cautious optimism, I took a chance and went fishing. Considering how fishing has been lately, I was definitely happy with my catch. I hope that the fishing continues to improves over the next month and the much awaited mahimahi season will be a banner one!
