    On tuesday we put "Lexi Ann" back in the water after 2 month of dry dock to repair some damage we got from the tsunami and for some upgrades. The crane puts us in the water at about 8am and then we top of at the fuel dock. Start heading for the west side at about 9 am. Our plan was to head for the 1500 but that plan changes when we find a couple charters working a porpoise pile just outside the 1000. The water is pretty snappy and after making a couple passes we lose sight of the pile and all the boats go their separate ways. We slide down the line for a while then out of no where the corner goes off followed by the long rigger. After 10 mins or so we cut line on the rigger fish. The corner fish is a battler, after taking us down to 1/3 spool we work it within color but instead of diving it surfs down sea on the surface. We spend most of the fight with the fish swimming 60' off our port side. Its a battle to get it within gaff range and goes nuts as we put the 1st and 2nd gaff into him. Tail beating, head shaking, water spraying, rough seas... 2 guys against 1 fish and its giving us hell. We finally get him to settle down and we put him to sleep. Get em in the boat and head for Koolina :hali_olutta: Take the fish to Roy's Fishing Supply to get it weighted and it goes #215.
    Our first Ahi for 2011 and one that I will always respect and remember. Fever is in full effect, good luck to everyone.. Go get yours!!!

    G and crew,
    COOL, I'm thinking the boat yards might get busy... "hey can you just put us in your slings for a minute?". What a beast and with attitude, nothing better. Way to kick off the year, sorry to hear about the rigger fish, but that could have made it really interesting.

    Cheers
    Pat

    Wow! The month of May sure has been good to you so far: got your Force 18 back with the nifty eisenglass enclosure in early May, then got your big boat back, and now to top it off got a bumboocha ahi! Way to go, hope the rest of the season is even better!
