    Ok, just to start off, I'm very happy we went with Start Me Up. The pre-trip communications were great. They asked what we were looking for and I had a few questions of my own. We talked right up until the night before while Capt. Tim'ster watched the weather. One option was to fish close with a later start and one was to head across the channel to Molokai if the weather permitted.

    Long story short, the weather permitted and we left Lahaina around 0425 hours. Even with the weather being "down," we were very happy to be in the 42' Bert. Some of the waves were steep and tight together. The boat made the ride comfortable.

    Once we left the harbor, we headed across the channel and Eddie (Deckie/Future Real Estate Mogul) had the lines in the water before grey light. Brandon was first up since I really wanted the kids and Wife to do most, if not all of the fishing. His first Ono came shortly after sun up. After seeing the fish, Natalie decided to sit out her rotation. She was also starting to feel the effects. I ended up taking fish #2, Ono, and then Brandon was up again.

    The fishing party was me, the Wife, Brandon (14-years and 6'3") and Natalie (9-years). Brandon and Natalie's only saltwater experience was a one-day on my old boat. Needless to say, we had concerns and there was some chumming by Natalie. She ended up pulling back together like a champ and spent much of the trip up top "napping."

    There were many "Firsts" on the trip:

    My first Ono and first fish from a chair. Interesting experience.

    Brandon's firsts included his first Ono, first Mahi Mahi, first time from a chair, and first charter.

    This was a great day for the family and I felt well taken care of. Oh, don't forget the sunblock if you come out. I think they picked up the heat signature of my nose by satellite.

    I think we were 11 hooked or hit with 5 landed. I farmed my second after pushing the fun lever up and pulling the hook just before Eddie got the leader. With all the Ono action, skirt swaps were frequent.

    Gotcha Carlos. I sent one back but was getting a tattoo at the time. I thought it was funny but Jay the tattoo artist was talking too.

    I don't think it was him. We are coming home Sunday so I should be able to post more.

    We were in room 102 at the Aston Kaanapali Shores. It was a 2-bedroom condo about 50-feet from the water.
