Finally finished putting together my new ABT trailer. Got it registered and legal and decided to take advantage of the light winds and run over to Molokai for an overnighter. My friend and I left Portlock at about 5pm Tuesday evening. The channel was so nice that it only took about an hour and ten minutes to reach the west side of Molokai. We got in right when the sun was setting and threw anchor near Ilio Point. Woke up early Wednesday morning and trolled around Ilio and on up past Kalaupapa. Was looking for an Ono, but only managed to pick up two small aku. Did some sight seeing and then pulled the lines, put the outriggers away and headed full throttle back towards Oahu. We were making good time until about four miles from Portlock. Off to the side I saw a big white bird plummet from the sky and splash into the ocean. Veering towards it, I picked up three more birds and then the beautiful pod of porpoise. The dolphins were in full feeding mode, chasing flying fish across the surface as the birds dove to intercept. I grabbed two poles, clipped a 9" lapinad 3 hole bullet on each and sent them straight back past the prop wash. I couldn't pick up any marks on the sounder and after about a half hour of driving through the porpoise, I was almost convinced that there weren't any tuna to be had. By then, however, the bird pile had quadrupled so I told my friend, "ok, one more pass and we're going in." We skirted the pile and I watched as the lures passed directly through the hot zone. Nothing. Oh well, it was worth a try. A moment later, the starboard pole bent over and the reel started to go. I kept driving for another thirty seconds and there went the port side, screaming and dumping line. Elated, we went to work and quickly boated the first ahi within about ten minutes. The second fish though proved a bit more challenging. It emptied the 14/0 about four times before showing us the leader. Roughly an hour and fifteen minutes after the first fish, we were able to stick a gaff in the second one. I thought that our summer days of catching ahi may have been over, but thankfully the porpoise are the gift that keep on giving all year round. We cut up the fish and shared them with family and friends, but they looked to be about 140 and 180 lbs.
