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!
