Left Koolina late (captians fault) with Kel and Mike. Headed to BO. Good bird pile and plenty small akus. Made a couple passes on the pile and got lucky. Long rigger took a good strike. Didnt pull too much line so thought maybe a nice shibi. Turned out to be a nice ahi. Boys were stoked. 7am and ahi in the boat. Made some more passes no joy and it started getting busy so decided to head inside. Headed straight in saw some birds made a few passes no joy then turned off and bam same lure came down really hard. Could tell this was a dozer. Pulled plenty line and made multiple runs. Hour thirty later in the boat. Big boy. Didnt get weight but pretty sure its a personal best.
Go gettum.
Aloha

That is a big boy. Good job on landing both of them. Too bad you didn't get the weight. I would like to know what that thing topped out at. Congrats again captain and crew.

Congrats on your great catches today! The second fish looks like it is close to 250-260lbs!

Ho there's no words to describe that AHI... Jesse good thing you caused the late start, otherwise the day would have never been the same. Nice early day fish followed by the BEAST, what a specimen.

Cheers
Pat
