Day 24:  Beautiful morning and the opelu were biting.  One lai and one kawelea in the bag early so thought I at least have a few points; but remember Waimeakauai's order to finish strong.  Fortunately a couple onos cooperated.  Half way through the battle with the larger I see some light blue lines hanging off my pole.  Figuring I had reeled in someones bait reel mess, I reach up and grab them with my left hand, you can hear the howl on my video, not fish line but Portuguese Man-of-War tentacles! 

Day 23 [279] + Day 24 16-lb Ono [30] + 35-lb Ono [45] = [354] through and including day 24.

Day 25:  9th got me out before light this morning so I wouldn't finish the tournament with a zero on my last day.  I am including a photo of my wife of 42 yrs.   Cheri's responsible for any success I enjoyed with good lunches, encouragement and great tolerance!

Through Day 24 [354] + Day 25 15.6# Ono [30] + Opelu CNR [2] = 386

Congratz Ed! Didn't realize u finished your season. Quite an accomplishment in itself to claim and fish 25 makahiki days. And as yokos said what away to end the season as the "Ono Slayer" of the rec division!

Mahalo for the encouragement and atta boys!  If those onos had not jumped in my kayak the last two days, I might have gotten Sierra Club and Earth First to sponsor me next year. :)
