The X buoy was our fishing hole today, and we had her all to our selves. The water was flat and glassy, and the 10-20 pound ahi were biting good. We caught some on small lures and some more on bait. Sue got to catch the biggest one of the ahis. Then at about 12:30 a nice big marlin showed up following one of our small aku live baits, it was all excited and eagerly swallowed the bait when Scot free spooled it to her. Brian was the angler. It did not jump when we set the hook, it just shook its head a lot and ran out about 400 yards of line. Brian did a great job of reeling it in and had it to about 50 yards when she put on the jumping part of the show. The next half hour was a back and forth battle with the fish running and jumping and Brian reeling it back in. At one hour into the fight the fish got tired and came to the boat and was no problem at gaff. Back in the harbor, Dan and Sue consumed eyeballs out of the ahis and I showed them how it is really done by throwing one of the eyeballs from the marlin in the air and catching it in my mouth, yummy. The marlin tipped the scales at just under 300 pounds. A great day of fishing. Congratulations to you all. Aloha Capt. Rusty

The X buoy was our first destination and it produced some nice size aku and ahi in the 10-15 pound range and a lot of smaller ones, all on the 40 pound test. Then we went outside to 25 miles and found nothing, so we returned to the X and caught some more small bait and while doing that a marlin came up and made a pass at one of our live baits, but did not eat it. We did not see it again, Bummer. We tried bait and Scot hooked up one more 15 pound ahi, then it was time to go in. In the harbor Dave was the only sport to join me in the eyeball eating ritual (they don't taste bad, slightly salty). They all had a good time. Aloha Capt. Rusty

We went to the LL buoy and took a double 10 pound ahi on the first pass, then two more singles of the same size. Then we jigged the light tackle around and caught some small aku and ahi until a big shark came around and we were forced to hook it up and tame it. Bill did a good job of reeling it in. On our way back in we found one white bird working and a 33 pound bull mahi came in and hooked up. Rusty got to reel that big one in. In the harbor only Russ was up to the eating of eyeballs, so much so that he had three of them. A fun day. Aloha Capt. Rusty

Our day started at the II buoy where we caught one small aku and 3 small ahi before flipper and his gang showed up to spoil our fun. We then went all the way to the X buoy, taking a strike in the blind that came off on the way. At the X we got more small aku and ahi, the biggest about 7 pounds. Then a big shark showed up and it was time to go. On the way in we had another strike that came off on the ledge. The surf was big (15-18 feet) so we went into Waiamea Bay and got a real close look at the guys surfing. In the harbor Stan and Mora were the bold ones who participated in the eyeball eating ritual.

Today we went to the CO buoy and were rewarded with a nice big 33 pound Mahi on our first trolling pass. We came back with bait but nothing came in. We then jigged and caught some small ahi and some 12 pound ahi too. On light line they were lots of fun to catch, we got 6 of the bigger ones. On the way in we stopped at the crab boat and hooked a 6 foot shark for Jim, it gave him a real good fight, then we cut it loose. In the harbor at the fish cleaning time we had a sweep with everyone consuming at least one eyeball, both Steves ate two each. We had good fun fishing with these guys, they love to fish.

We went to the LL buoy and caught some small bait to start, then Steve Manser managed to hang onto 2, 12 pound Ahi on light tackle. Scot baited and we could see some bigger tuna coming up but they would not eat our baits. On the way home we found several schools of small aku and caught 5 aku. The surf was on the way up in the afternoon forecast to be 20 to 30 feet by evening .As we neared Waimea bay we took an ono strike and Steve Mapua reeled in a 20 pound ono. In the harbor when it came to the eyeball ritual everyone indulged in eyeballs. I like it. It was good to fish with these guys. Aloha Capt Rusty

Our day started at 4 am and off to the LL buoy we went. There were no big tunas biting like the day before so we caught some small bait size ones and Scot baited up one 12 pound ahi. Then we headed on down and out looking for something. We found a small floater 3 miles from the buoy and caught 6 mahis, 2 nice big ones and 4 medium ones. Then closer to home we found 2 more open schools and caught 4 more nice mahis and an ono. In the harbor everyone joined in and swallowed the eyes with Philip even going for seconds. These were some real sports to go that early, we had real good fun fishing with them. Aloha Capt. Rusty

We did the LL buoy run and were rewarded with doubles and triples, from 30 to 50 pound Bigeye tuna (more on the Bigeyes later) on our first trolling passes. It was going off, for a while at least. We got around 4 - 50 pounders and an assortment of smaller ones from 20 to 30 pounds. Scot then tried to bait some up but the birds were to pesky, eating most of the bait before the fish could. So we headed for home and on the way we found a nice cargo net holding some Mahi. It was doubles and triples again some trolling and some on bait. The biggest two were 28 and 25 pounds. We caught 10, four big ones and 6 medium ones. In the harbor when it came to the eyeball eating time everyone had one and Mike even joined me in eating some of the eyes out of those Bigeye tunas, They were the size of big marbles, but they do slide right down. It was good fun fishing with these folks. Aloha Capt. Rusty

On this flat day we went to the X buoy and got a bunch of small aku and ahi. Then on out to 25 miles found one open school had a strike but the mahi came off on the way in. Heading back to the X buoy we took a double mahi and got them both nice fat ones. At the buoy we got some more small baits and headed in. At 5 miles in from the X another boat called us and said the best thing you can hear he said "come now" which means he found a good floater. So we turned and went back out and caught 8 mahi and 2 small ono around a 10 foot long branch, it was well worth it. It was almost dark when we got back to the harbor, Al, Jack and Dan all joined me in the eating eyeballs ritual, it was good fun fishing with these guys even though they were a little hard on some of our gear. Aloha Capt. Rusty

Today we did the II buoy routine and only caught bait, then on out to 27 miles and the only thing we found was our first sighting of Humpback whales for the season. No strikes anywhere so we went for the last resort and at the crab boat we hooked Ralph up to a 6 foot reef shark. It took a while to reel in because it was hooked in the side, It was the biggest fish Ralph had ever caught. Aloha Capt. Rusty
