Planned to give the Bank another shot on Sunday 4-17 but with the parking lot at Maunalua all full because of the canoe race and a Saturday report that the bite wasnât good on the Bank, decided to give Waianae a try. Got up to see the full moon and, when turned the corner on the breakwater, saw the glassy water and it was like âOh no, two strikes against us alreadyâ since water that malie usually doesnât make for a good bite. Decided to poke it outside while looking for birds, porpoise, any kine sign, but it was an oily calm blue desert for a while. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><o></o> Finally started to see some scattered birds so throttled back and dropped a full spread of Archer Superbars into the wake. With everything out and set, started to work the area, reminding ourselves that luck is when preparation meets opportunity. We were all prepared and just wanted an opportunity! After a while, I looked back to check the pattern and saw a mahi flying through the air and â hanapaa â the buggah went dive bomb my JT RuckusRaiser! We gettum in the boat and â yee ha â no whitewash. Let the JT back out and work the area some more. See scattered birds but they not piling up, see false killer whales so figure better move on. Little ways away from there the JT goes off again with another mahi! Yippee! - one more mahi in the bag! Kinda slow but at least weâre getting something to eat.<o></o> <o></o> Decide to head in and got a farewell present â one more mahi tags the JT, and we get that one too. Three for three, not bad. On the way in we finally come across a small bird pile and the Meatball gets bit, and a shibiko joins the mahi in the bag. The birds break up and split the area so we go home. Not a great day but the Archer bars pulled some liquid gold out of the blue desert and it was a nice boat ride on a beautiful day, so weâre all good.<o></o> <o></o> Tight lines to all.
