    Got excited about the Kaneohe side getting signs of fish. So, Capt. Don and I agree that we hit the water monday. He was super busy making sure his mother-in-law's birthday party is ready. But, I had an itch that needed some serious scratching.
    Called Uncle T.J. to see if the "Wailele Jam" (26' Saltwater) was fueled and ready to go. By, the end of the day (thursday) the boat was fueled, iced, and ready to go.
    Boat and crew rolled out friday morning from my house at 3:30am. Get in the water at 4:00am. Let the boat warm up and start heading out around 4:45am. Got about 20 miles at sunrise and start chasing birds. Got a good morning call from Capt. Don and said to "stop chasing the dream" and just drag lures. So, we slow the boat down and put out the spread "Uncle Bart Specials" all 5 poles. Sure enough Capt. Don was right again. We start taking blind strikes from Mahimahis. Got ten pieces in the box and we are rolling.
    Off in the distance I see what looks like another boat. As we get closer in distance i realize it's no boat....it looks like a buoy. I check the screen to see where the FAD buoy suppose to be. And find out that that buoy we were looking at was not ours (oahu). With only three lures out-two poles set for baiting-we come up to the buoy. With a little concern for no birds in the area i tell my crew "dont be surprised that there is no fish here". As soon as we pass the buoy all three reels start screaming. Couple minutes later 3 fat shibi in the boat getting bled out.
    I get on the phone and get in contact with Capt. Don and tell him what I found. He asks me is it worth it to come now (late). "Hell yeah" was the only response I could sum up. I tell my crew set the other two poles up with lures so we can get 5 next time. Set up for the pass and one at a time all 5 poles start dumping line. Did this for a couple more passes. And a few more 5 bangers later we are loaded up to the brim by 10:30.
    Wanted to say thank you to Capt. Don for the guidance. I might have been chasing birds all day and not found the stray buoy. And for bringing me more ice (the 500lbs I had wasnt enough)Thanks to uncle T.J. of the "Wailele Jam" for letting me take the boat out. And to my crew Chance for baby sitting me.
    Sorry about not having pictures gang. Uncle T.J. is all about business and we had a lot of fish to GG and get to the block.
    I'm sure Capt. Don will have his post up of his catch here in a few minutes. So, you can have an idea of what was being caught. 1,040 pounds turned in to the block by Uncle T.J..Thats not to include the fish we kept for family and friends. So, about 1,100 pounds.
    Aloha,
    Stoney

    That's just awesome. There's no other way to describe a catch like that. What buoy was it that you found?

    Yeah. It's supposed to be on the east side off Hana. It holds a lot of fish when it's anchored so I can only imagine what it must have been like after drifting all that way.
