    So what, you don't work tomorrow? No, how bout you, NO... so what, you going fishing... maybe... haven't you see the weather, pretty sh!tty yeah? So what, you wanna go.. SHOOTZ... we go...

    Buzzer goes off, crap, 0300 already... just felt like i stopped dreaming of shibis.... get up, walk around, okay, i'm awake... told my brother, ya need to bring your big boy pants today bro, gonna be cranking offshore today (8 to 10 ft waves, 20knot + winds) ... Get to the boat, set up and underway at 0430... Ah, Kaneohe style... can't see sh!t, cause it's a new moon, waves reported up to 9.2 feet on the Kailua Bay Buoy report.... so that's in my mind, plus whales are out there, so don't wanna run into that thing! Got the windows unzipped and drinking saltwater from the splashing for two hours to get to the buoy... 0630, sun's up, now i can see what i've been up against... not too bad... YET... finally find the buoy... no birds... bummahs, but no worry... set out two lines... wind's blownin 25kt plus... gotta be... outriggers are running on the wrong side of da boat... with just two lines out... launched my croakies.... let me see if dis works.... ho brah, bam.... make a pass... two screamers.... one unbutton, get the first fish in, lines out 5 minutes, maybe... 32lb shibi in the boat, smiling face, but no joy ride for sure.... set them both out again, get tangled... anyway, still get fish... just a nightmare to get fish in boat.. two more 20lbrs... this goes on for an hour... Birds are there, just couldn't see em.... sh!t load of dem aku birds... no whites! 0830, wtf... off in the distance, i see the Nisei in the back ground, headed this way.. crap... tried to make another pass on the buoy, they drove right up to the buoy and stay stuck on the buoy, then drift for a minute then go back... watch the rake in fish after fish, no more bites for me.... so i troll outside of them, just go slow... two croakies and two Kelala ice blue heads with ice blue outter/cream cycle inner skirt on the corners... we start catching again... stayed there for another hour or so, then had to leave... wind picked up, was just miserable to try to stand up and crank fish... all in all, picked up 7 mahi mahi, 14 Shibi and 11 Aku... was not a relaxing day of fishing... but, only boat out today that we saw was the Nisei... so i felt good... braved the water, and paid out... glad we made it home safe more importantly... Dropped off over 200lbs of fish at the block... Ah, Merry Christmas to you all.. stay safe and tight lines!

    Scott,

    I love your account of the days action. I have no doubt you know how to pound the fish when everyone else stays home. You had me remembering my last return trip from Molokai on one engine in red flag sea's. Nothing like a big water day to make you appreciate how well the boat is built. Congrats on your day and way to man up! :hali_olutta:

    Good going on a wicked weather day. Gotta say that the Kaneohe folks are the craziest guys on the island! 26 footer not so bad I guess....

    You sure you didn't see a ~17 feet green boat behind the Nissei?

    HA... thanks for the compliments guys... @Bob... didn't see one... I'm sure the Nisei didn't expect to see me on the Buoy so early, especially in that weather...

    The only thing i personally don't like about windy days is that it blows the lines all over the place... with light lures especially, such a bitch to fish, but if they pounding the only two lines out, go with what works...

    Wow... So much for dreams of great holiday prices for all the hard work in rough seas. I guess the Nissei bringing in 3-4 thousand lbs of Aku that morning didn't help.

    At least you had fun and got some gas money back+maybe some eats. That's all I hope for. Maybe the prices will be better this week. Thanks for sharing for sure.

    NavyAir: You are the man to go out in that stuff! I looked out at the ocean off Koko Head the other day and I thought "I'm glad I'm not out in that sh--stuff."

    Looked like the kind of weather where you hope the fish WON'T bite so you don't have to try to gaff it rolling and pitching like that.
