Thanks guys! Was kinda brutal on the return after busting a rudder cable early in the morning.  The wind and chop was getting angry as it was trying to turn the kayak 45 degrees or more off course.  Had to paddle about a mile or more back in with my left leg in the water, ocasionally kicking, to create enough drag to keep me directed to the launch site.  I'm just glad conditions were forgiving for me.

Very true Jason.  Trying to be prepared for for the unknown is not always reliable.  Just glad the conditions were reasonable.

Gonna claim tomorrow, 8/14/2016, for Rob and Roman.

There was a lot of action early in the day.  Only a few of the fish stuck.  I even yanked a 6 foot Galapagos shark up in about 5 minutes and maybe less.  He must have been full of fish or maybe sick because he came up way too easy.  The winds picked up around noon and the action did the opposite, so we came in early.

Roman's day 7 total:
triple offshore
+10lb kawa = 20pts
+10lb kawa = 20pts
+10lb shibi = 20pts
total:60pts

Rob's day 20 total:
small kawa cnr = 7pts
aha = 10pts
total:17pts

New team total:
1,224pts + 60pts + 17pts = 1,301pts

Launched lunchtime and spent countless hours and rigs looking for bait.  My day was more pelagically challenged instead of pelagially insane.  Maybe I should've brought some ti leaves.  Either way, the ocean and weather was beautiful.  I would've launched without my rods just to paddle for hours on such a killa day like today.

Rob's day 22 total
2x papio cnr = 14 points

New team total:
1348pts + 14pts = 1362pts

Thanks guys!

It was great to be out there on another amazing day with such pristine conditions.  The kawas flooded the ledge in the mid morning and gave me some good action.  I lost a couple but I managed to land 4 of them. 

The best part of the day was around lunchtime, when I lost two awesome fish but witnessed an insane feeding frenzy unfolding  After restocking on bait, I approached the ledge and heavy sheet rain hit the ocean so hard, the rain seemed to be coming up from the ocean.  At one point, the island disappeared in white rainy haze. This isn't the first time I've been solo in conditions like this.  But, this is the first time I've seen so much action on a kayak in about 15 minutes.  I dropped my first bait and within a minute or so, the line was being stripped off my Penn liveliner before I could close the bail.  5 minutes later and I have a small shibi.  I dropped another bait and same thing.  Almost immediately, after dropping the bait, line is being stripped with the bail open.  I set the hook and it's a 4+ foot ono.  I fight it for 5 minutes as it gives two wild runs.  Before I could set the kage, it shifted across the bow from left to my right and bites through the leader.  I grab my second rod that should be out and baited but never had time.  I toss another bait out and same thing again.  Within seconds, the line is being stripped with the bail open not 25 yds from my yak.  I set the hook and it screams.  It almost tips me twice since I have a habit of keeping my drag torqued down as most of us probably do.  I muscle it up and I know this is a nice shibi or maybe small ahi.  After about 5 Minutes and one really nice ride through the sheeting rain, I see some color and continue to yank him up.  He may have been about 25 feet below me as the rain started to calm and the line snaps.  I almost went over the other side of the yak but I still haven't yet.  Then I hear thrashing and see kawas jumping about 75-100ft in front of me as a 200-300lb marlin shows himself.  I threw another bait out but got no solid action before padding back in.

I would claim 4 of a kind kawas for the extra points, but I think the rules say that the fish have to be over 10lbs for bonus points unless MM strait.

Rob's day 23 total:
triple offshore
20pts = 10+lb kawa
20pts = 10+lb kawa
20pts = 10+lb shibi
total: 60pts

New team total:
1362pts + 60pts = 1422pts
