Grant I am sure you will be getting out of that slump very soon.   Remember those days you caught when, where, ect the list can go on for ever.   It is like looking for Opie's.  They are not to far from when you last saw them you just have to remember when they are home or have the secret knock for them to open the door or find out where they moved to.

Have a Great Day Fishing Tomorrow Grant

Quick report.... not much!  Lost a good size shibi to a shark, one came off just under the kayak.  Watched Shawn bring in a good size Ono and watched Devin fight his huge rainbow runner.  Only a couple baby Kawakawa to score.

Going to claim Sunday for day 7.  Haven't been out for a couple weeks so very rusty but when you don't have a chance to make practice runs you gotta claim everyday.

Had a tiger shark following me around all morning.... after the second time hooking it up and a swim up to the kayak in between over a tree hour period I gave up.  Nothing to report.

Big Zero.

Day 8

No bait to be found.... lucky enough I had a small Ulua take an ole sticky dead opelu.  Also after a long time trying to find a moano for bait I finally picked one up.  As the line was going out with this fresh bait, an Omilu grabbed it before I finished letting line out.

Omilu  CnR- 24" 9lbs-     9+2 points
Ulua    CnR- 25" 11lbs- 15+2 points

Day 8 totals-                    28 points
Total                              112 points

Day 11 late report.

Made a short run on the Kona side.  Lost a small Mahi at the leader and thought the day was going to be a complete loss due to the wind picking up.  Wasn't marking any fish but let my dead bait sink while I was fixing my other rig and that's the luck I needed for the day.  Good little fight with a decent size Uku.

Day 11

Uku  12lbs      20 points.

Grand Total----  124 + 20 =  144

Had to work on the west side today so I thought I'd take the kayak and an extended lunch break.  Water was great, transducer/FF sucked, lucky I brought some bait.  Made multiple passes over my spots and finally got lucky.  One strike all day but in stuck!

37 lbs Ono-  45 points

Grand Total-  203 points.
