OK, now you're just showing off!
I have owned several boats already and I agree with you. I was sad to see all of them go. But there are always periods where I go boat-less for a while, so it's nice to have a few friends with boats I can fish on.....lol.
not ahi Ahi are 100 lb and over these are local Mexican water yellowfin that are nice but dont taste as good as Ahi hwich are in Hawaii and 800 miles around etc the islands.
but still nice going!!!
Nice pix of sun up!! You are so right love the crisp morning. Nice grade
NICE FISH Jonathan, way to go! Great report and pics too!
Wow, great fish, looks like great weather......very nice!!!
"Not ahi" (Arik). Wikipedia: Yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares) are a species of tuna found in the pelagic tropical and sub-tropical oceans of the world. Yellowfin are often marketed as "ahi" from a Hawaiian name." There is no 100 lb. reference provided to qualify as ahi.
Looks like a large ahi to me, great job!
What fantasy world is this from??
So let me get this straight - you are claiming that ahi is a separate species of tuna?
Hawaii Seafood (source): "In Hawaii, ahi refers to two species, the yellowfin tuna and bigeye tuna. These are caught from 3 lbs. to well over 200 lbs. The larger fish are preferred due to a higher fat content". Again, there is no reference to only 100 lb. fish or above being called ahi. Must be a local, informal "rule" among Hawaiian anglers.
I read somewhere that once these Mexican fish (clearly a different species than Ahi) actually begin to taste like In-N-Out cheeseburgers once they reach the magical weight of 200lbs.
Any truth to the rumor that the Hawaiian ahi tuna are building a wall to keep the fake Mexican ahi out of Hawaiian waters?
Making Hawaii great again
Awesome day. Great photos, too.
My boat has been out of commission this entire summer and it's killing me......I doubt I'll ever be without a boat.
