    Finally got a day off and the weather to align and decided to take advantage. Left the harbor at 0600 grabbed some opelu at the bouy and be lined it for the II. Got there and 3 boats and a jetski were already working it:hali_parkutuli:, was bummed but lined up the spread and did the drive by (bam pickup a mahi 2 banger 4" bl/wht cedar plug and 9" blu/pink reel tight. Looked like everyone was jigging and not catching much, got a little crowded when they saw the 2 mahi come on board. Had the lines cleared so decide to live bait. Went 2/2 on each of the first 3 passes :2gunsfiring_v1:. Tossed some dead saba and the mahi were not picky. Keep 8 and let the small kine go back to grow some more. Great day, finished by 1130 and back in time with dinner for friends and family. :food-smil

    Nice pile of mahis. I can visualize the other boats picking up the pace after they saw you pass by and put two on the boat. :rofl:

    Thanks brian.

    Thanks CPT Don, we are still looking for a day like you all had before I head out for Afghan. Might have to bring the sled around the corner this month.

    Pat,
    Figured we would get them confused with choices and take advantage of thier glutoneous personalities (they didn't disappoint).

    v/r Joe

    Jonny,
    Wasn't to bad, not that many obsenities thrown around (go pro audio would have only been R rated). Trying to keep track of the jetskier and little RiB was a chore in the rough water. I wish the jetski guys would use a bike type flag to make it easier to see them, when they are in the trough they are invisible.

    Actually it shouldn't be much of a chore to keep track of the little RIB after all no one else has complained:) But you were right though, the mahis were biting everything and anything in the morning. Can't say the same for shibis.
    Good going on your catch,

    Bill,
    No complaining just an observation :). I was suprised we didn't pickup a Shibi out there also, looks like they were over on the East side. Hope to see you guys out there again. Tight lines and stay safe.

    Vr/Joe,


    East side for sure - was at the LL on Monday with 40 to 60 pounders jumping out of the water.
    Hope they hang around for a while. Go load 'em up if you have a chance to go.
    See you in the water next time.

    hey Joe
    i'm the jetski guy. really, i need a bike flag to go fishing? it wasn't that rough out there that you "had to keep track" of me and the RIB. you're fishing the buoy on a weekend, figure it out, you ain't gonna be alone. and i wasn't yelling a "rated R Hello" over to you when you ran up the back of my ski and cut one of my opelus off that was was baiting :finger: if you can see the buoy then you can see a jetski. it ain't rocket science how to fish a FAD in Hawaii. running hard back up to the buoy amongst everyone else trying to take their turn making a pass, deep jigging or baiting is plain stupid! i log onto BD and i see your fish report and your "details" so i gotta call you out on your newbie shit. LOL

    the mahis are everywhere on the northsides right now. in a couple of months we won't need to sort through the small ones and they'll all be keepers :) hopefully the other kine yellow fish start sliding down to our side of the island!!!

    good job on the mahis, everyone's eating good these days!!

    Nelz,
    I apologize for the cutoff (my fault for sure). I have a couple of guys from work that ski fish, they put the flags up to make it easier to keep track of each other while they are fishing seems like a good idea (not mandatory missed the point). Tight lines and stay safe brother.
