Day 6 Report, claimed through Rocket. What a beautiful day! Morning started out not so great... Woke up late as usual, got on the water around 730. Had noticed that I had forgotten a box that included alot of my fishing stuff, Rocket Launchers, bat, tackle boxes, gloves, etc... managed to peice together enough stuff out of my truck and stayed optimistic! told myself I was gonna go and make something happen anyway. Launch had some decent surf... Huli... recovered quick enough to not lose anything or damage anything and even after that still felt good about the day to come...

Sailfish 94# = 130 points
Shibi 17# = 30 points
Mahi 16# = 30 points
Mahi 15#
Opelu Kala


Offshore Trifecta= 15 points
Day 6 Total = 205
Previous = 160

Hell of a way to finish a not so good start.
A bad day fishing is still better than a good day at work.

Day 8 Report, claimed Day 8 via text to Rocket yesterday, beautiful conditions all day... Started off the day with a nice and early Mahi double strike, Mahi 2- Rooster 0, scratching my head a little and thinking it was gonna be one of "those days" not 5 minutes later another Mahi on the line!!! Mahi 3- Rooster 0... hmmm so I continued to make bait and bam! another double... Rubber hooks on both... fish 5- Rooster 0, Im usually a pretty Optimistic guy but at this point I was questioning WTF I was doing! lol Then as the day progressed I continued practicing the art of losing fish, small stripey about 40#, Chaffed through the leader, 50+# shibi, Tail hooked and when I brought it up I watched a Shark trade places with it under the Kayak. When the shark came in it decided to bite the tail of the shibi and as I watched the quivering body of the shibi sink to the depths I realized I was now doing battle with the shark who had caught the hook that was in the tail of the shibi... Joy!... I knew there was gonna be some action on the afternoon tide so I stayed somewhat optimistic ... I was still looking within at what the hell was going on lol. 430pm first fish on my lap, then the second, then I fed chompy some more... then the third and so on so on...all in all was a good day with screaming reels and bent poles all day long, Taxes paid for the year!

Shibi 27# = 40
Shibi 23# = 40
Shibi 18# = 30
three of a kind  = 15

Day 8 total = 125
Previous = 415
New total = 540points
