    Left Keehi @ 0500 heading out to waiane. Decided to swing by BO to see if anyone was home, the bouy was 1.5 miles off station and took us a while to find. We were rewarded with a nice bull Mahi, my biggest one of the year

    Continued all the way up into wainae, kept going north till we found the pack, it was waaaayyyyy further north than I wanted to go but ahi fever will make you do crazy things. When we pulled up there I counted 25 boats but I think there were more. A few were stopped and pulling on fish.

    We didn't get bit in the pile and needed to start heading back to town about 1300.

    Time to throw in the towel, its about beer:30

    At this point we are bummed to not pick up an ahi but stoked to be out on the water, right there the corner starts singing and a 200lb pac blue marlin starts tailwalking behind the boat does a 360 degree circle jumps and lands on the leader and breaks 400lb leader that I just changed the day before. Oh well that was a cool way to break up the monotony, bummer though lost my favorite Tsutomu lure, 9" heavy fishhead bullet.

    We set back up and keep heading to the barn, about 20 minutes later rigger comes down and a lazy run pulls about 75yds of line. I wasn't really sure what we had at first. 15 minutes later get the fish to the boat and we see that beautiful golden color. The fish fell for a 9" Tsutomu fish head slant, a copy of the lure I got my 200lber a few months back on.

    Heading around barbers the water was super flat which was an unexpected bonus. back in the harbor @1900.

    Kekoa and crew,
    Good goin on the bull and your ahi, bummer on the lost lure; friggin' marlin certainly can be a pain. Next time you should haul the boat all the way, more leeward water fishin' time.

    Cheers
    Pat
