Aloha, Launched Sat AM out of Honokohau at daybreak for a 1/2 day solo trip. Picked up a 20lb mahi right off the bat outside of "Pine Trees" on a blue and pink pencil popper so it looked like it was going to be a good day. 3 1/2 hours later I was still waiting for my second bite :-(. It finally came on the bend in the 1000f line right off of Kona town. A small stripey hit the pink and blue jet running behind a small bird in the stinger position. I got it to the boat with no fuss at all and it even calmly posed while I got a decent photo. I was able to the hooks out and set it free to fight another day. Wind started blowing pretty hard out of the south and I was right near the barn so I called it a day early.
