Day 3
Started off pretty good with an early uku. After that I got cut off twice so I decided to use wire. Hooked up to two kakus one in the teens and the other about 25ish. Didn't want to carry them so let them go. Wind started to honk so we went to the inside and got lucky with the ulua in some shallow water. Surprised I didn't get cut off.

Aloha Llowen,

do you have video of your 10lb kahala? For now we'll score it as under 10.  Once you can comply with the video requirements for 10lb fish we'll count the stated points

Just gave the fish away to my filipino uncle. I'll ask him to weigh and send if possible but if not I'm fine with the points. Is this rule only for  10 lb fish or all fish that are borderline on the next points bracket? If so I seen a bunch of other borderline fish go unquestioned.

Claimed day 5 thru Ike yesterday. Day started off pretty bad with three missed strikes with the first being the hardest I ever seen my pole get hit.  Found more bait and got lucky with some ukus and a kawakawa.
