    We got lucky again today, real lucky, this time in Waianae.

    We left the harbor at 5:00 and headed out to BO, where we found absolutely nothing. After making our way up along the 1500 back toward Waianae, Dex laid out a bunch of cushions and took a rest. After a few minutes, the left outrigger got knocked down but it missed. Dex popped up and ran to the pole to wind in some line. That triggered the fish to hit the lure again. This time the hook was set and we got a nice spearfish.

    We continued north and passed over the Maili pinnacle to find Magic Sportfishing battling a big marlin.

    Later, we found a current line on the 1000 and followed it up to Makua -- but no one was home. The water was flat like a lake, the wind was still, and the sun was glaring down on us. It was hot out there. It just didn't look too promising, so at noon (right at low tide) we turned toward First Hawaiian Bank to run the ledge back to the harbor. At this point we were about 7 miles outside of Makua Cave. Dex joked that he should lay down again, heheh, and I agreed (superstitious buggahs, both of us). Well, he did lay down again for about 30 seconds...until the same outrigger slammed down hard and line started peeling off the 16/0. A half hour later, we lifted a 135 lb (estimated) ahi over the gunwale.

    There were other boats at the washdown that reported catching ahi as well. Perhaps the prime moon is starting to pay out. Finally! It's been pretty dry on the west side for quite a while.

    Aloha and good fishing, gang!

    Way to go, Pupule! Boy, you're really killing 'em this year! Surprised to see that you were out on the water on this - ahem, ;) - working day, but you sure picked the right day to be out there. Two outrigger hits...two hookups...no nuisance roller troller popping that we were corresponding about on the other thread?...problem solved, or different teaser/lure combination? Either way, great day; hope you give us chance in the PHFT.

    Thanks, everyone. This sure beats the goose eggs we put up on the scoreboard last year.


    I'm still using the 9" Archer dredge on the corners. The roller trollers won't hold them. Been using 5" birds on the long riggers.

    I haven't yet decided about entering the Pearl Harbor tournament. Tournament fishing, going all the way back to my shorecasting days, just takes all the fun out of it. It's self-inflicted, I guess. The pressure to perform well puts me at the hairy edge of sanity.

    Nothing special going on here, CP. I've been taking a bunch of days off since late May to go fishing and do boat/truck maintenance. Been hitting the water hard during and after the full moon -- dragging the lures around for literally hundreds of miles over the past month. I call it the "brute force" method...just get out there and fish a lot! LOL
