Geting Closer
« on: May 11, 2014, 05:43:04 PM »
I got some new electronics lately. A elite 4x and a new vhf radio with GPS. I was trolling a dead bate and I found some fish in about 150 feet of watter, I stopped to try and catch bate and the reel went off. I landed my first Uku, and rigged a new dead bate. A little while later another strike, this time a big bright blue Mahi jumped about 4 or 5 times and came off. I was so amped I forgot about marking the GPS I just rigged my last bate and pulled it around until the belly blew out.  The uku had some small damashi hooks in his side.

Nice fish!  Uku is one of my favorite.  Hows the elite 4x?  I have a new one I haven't installed yet.
HOW much is that to ship to Hawaii!!!???

It is great. I have never used a ff before so I have no  comparison. I am still figuring it out but it works good.     Now I have to figure out how to catch  the fish it marks.

I got my first Mahi and broke my Penn fierce rod. I was trolling a live Halalu and a CM. The Mahi struck the CM and gave my best fight yet. I fought it for 10-15 minutes got all tangled on my other line, cut the tangle off, got the fish up to leader, raised my kage and it took off on another run. The uni to uni knot got caught in the guides and snap the tip broke. I managed to hand line the fish and land it. I am going to see if I can get a new pole from Penn for discount or something. Stoked on my first Mahi.

Thanks. The CM's pays off, got a small aku in the way in on a small Rapala. Sashimi! I have hooked a lot of small aku and kawakawa on that little rappala black and silver with a orange chin. Kaku too, its all torn up but still gets bites.

Got a Kagami on 10# damashi. It was a fun fight I had to loosen the drag and let it run, and fight it gently. I got a couple more good strikes and broke off on damashi.  I lost all my weights so i tied a small jig on a damashi and pulled it around for a while and hooked something. I fought it for a while and broke off an lost my rig. :o

surprised the mahi took the lure instead of the bait. ive only caught a mahi once on a minnow. but ive noticed the shibi really like them.
