    My boat is broken and had some friends in town, so we fished two days with Captain Russ on Lepika and had two solid days of fishing! Not too many boats out and once we found the porpoise schools, we had fairly steady action the Ahi and Marlin.
    First day we got four big bites ( two Ahi and two marlin) and landed one Ahi at #145 on a live opelo. We also saw two other ahi and one big blue get caught right in the same area. Second day we had a better bite in the morning on the Ahi, raising 4 on the green stick, landing two nice ones in the #140 pound range. The bite shut down by mid morning and that was it but we did see a boat hooked up to a blue marlin south of the harbor at around the 1000 fm edge.
    Russ was great! very hard working, knowledgable and pleasant. He knows what he was doing and I learned a lot from him in two days. We did way better than we would have on my boat, so everyone was stoked.

    Nice work Brother! I didn't know you had a boat in Kona. Time to install a greenstick? :D

    I will also be fishing with Russ and Bomboy in February and can't wait!

    I know I have been talking a little to Bomboy about the light greenstick. PM me with your number and the dates you are going to be in Kona, we should get out for day. My boat is only 20 feet and I can't catch them like those to but still manage to catch fish most days out.

    Talk to you then!!
