Windy day!!! but for the most of the day it was really manageable then when it started getting sketchy i headed in. New area for me so have to put more time in out there to learn it. I do know for sure i can catch Nunu (7 of them today!) and Lai'i  kept making me think i found opelu. oh well, same as ever....

Day 7
Hage CNR- 7
Moana Kali CNR - 8

Day total 15

Running total- 104

Day 8 was a day i shoulda stayed home. thought the wind was going to let up today but man it sure didn't. Caught a bunch of goats and little uku and some opelu but sure didnt take pictures of anything but the Kawele'a because i thought i was going to be putting in a full day and surely i would catch something else and the goats were all smaller ones. Won't do that again.

Day 8
Kawele'a CNR-7

Running total - 111

Think i got the MM Straight today. Overall not too terrible but would have loved to get on the opelu.

Nunu CNR- 2pts
Hage CNR- 7pts
Yellow Spot CNR- 7pts
Taape- 1 pt
Weke Ula CNR- 8 pts

Day 10 total = 25 (woohoo its not 15 lol)

122 + 25 = 147 running total

Brad,

for the taape.  if counting as points fish, you can claim up to 10 taape as one of your 2 fish, you would get 1 point each.  I'm counting day 10 as 11 points 8 plus 3 for the 3 taape

Day 11 in the books and started out so nice out there i had forgotten how nice it can be with no wind ;) The Opelu sure didn't show up at all but just meant i headed to reef for the MM Straight! I do have a question and i will score it like i think it works but please let me know if the Taape 10 fish=1 thing doesn't apply to the MM Straight and i will drop the points for the 10 of em. They were biting like crazy today.

Taape (10 of them) =10
Nunu CNR = 2
Hage CNR = 7
Goat CNR = 8
Papio CNR = 7


Day 11 total = 34
147+34= 181 total


For the taape i just combine all the pictures but i do have video of all 14 that i caught.





13 inches on this hage, he was a big guy. biggest one i have caught so far.


Lots of goats today too.




Papio started my day :) the reason i always drag something behind me on the way out




And when coming back in i got this Awa awa. I love how they think they are tarpon or something with how they jump. Doesnt count towards the MM Straight but still fun.


the footage of the awa awa :)

Yeah the Awa awa are my favorite inside fish to catch just because they jump like crazy. Oio i think fight harder tho but the jumping takes the cake!

Thanks LB. Glad the wind has quit enough to get out without it being just a fight the whole time and man i hope so with the opelu. Grateful for the MM Straight tho but i keep this up and they are going to have to change the name to MMBK Straight lol.
