Justin, Day 7.
Tough day on the water. Tried like hell to make bait, but kawalea were everywhere and smashing the opelu before you could get um in the boat. Had an ono chase a hooked opelu right up to the yak. Bit it in half right at the rail and disappeared. Lucky had some dead baits and managed to land a couple fish. Rough water and rogue waves outta nowhere made for some sketchy conditions, according to Justin. Makes me glad I missed it. Happy he made it home safe.

Kahala, 12.59# - 15
Kaku, 11.03# - 10

The potential for disaster while on the water is real. Bailing in front of a breaking rogue wave as instinct takes over. Thank goodness my son has a lifetime of experience in heavy water. I'm thankful that he was able to think on his feet and made it home safe.

Day 7 (Wes), Day 8 (Justin)

Opelu still uncooperative. Caught a few here and there. Justin took the first strike, a big ono, but cut leader. Don't ask..lol. Big schools of la'i that looked like opelu all over the place. Fooled me a half dozen times. Got a few dinner fish off the bottom and lost a few nice ones. I took a double that almost flipped me. Lost the big one and got the bebe. That's the kind of day it was. Went into overtime (8-1/2 hours on the water) and got lucky with a mahi at the buzzer. Aku birds, tho. No can. Glad to be able to provide. Sashimi and fresh mahi for the family and friends.

Justin:
Mahi, 10.54, (vid sent to Tofu) - 20
Uku, 5.22 (Vid sent to Tofu) - 9
Subtotal - 29

Wes:
MM Straight
Roi - 9
Moana CnR - 8
La'i (jack) CnR - 7
Hage CnR - 7
Nunu - 2
Subtotal - 33

Day total - 62
Previous total - 425
New Team total - 487

Yup. they're greedy little bastids..lol
We did a downwind run from Paia to Kahului Harboe last year and when we got to Kanaha reef, the roi were on our Crystal Minnow's like crazy. I caught 6, one was a double.

Hahahaha! Please don't judge me! I wasn't even thinking about the straight until the roi came up. Next drop and snagged the nunu..smh. Was a weird day. No bait and a lot of wasted time peddling around for nothing. I got 4 small uku, but the MM had the points..lol
