Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Forrest and Jim Pipkin and Matt and Tracy Hutcheson had fun catching one big barracuda 4 mahi and one ono.
We got a 4:00 start on this day of 25 mph trades going to the  X buoy. On our first pass we hooked a really big mahi but it came off half way to the boat. Second pass we got a nice mahi, then we baited and got one small mahi, then it was jigging time. We caught small aku and shibi and ran two live but no more mahi came to play with us, so we trolled out and found an open school of mahi and got one big one out of it. Then on down to the J buoy and when we ran a live bait something kept chopping them in half. This was a job for the suicide rig and it worked great to nail a 40 pound barracuda. On the way in we got one more mahi in the blind. In the harbor Forrest and Jim were up eating fish eyes but not Matt or Tracy. It was a fun day. Aloha Capt. Rusty

Our departure time was 4:00 on this day of 20 mph trades going to the J buoy. We took no strikes on our first pass and then went to light line and caught some aku and shibi. When we baited no mahi came around, so we headed on outside to look around. We found an open school of mahi and got one out of it, then after not finding much else we went back to the J buoy. On our first pass this time we took a bouble one big shibi and one small shibi. Then we caught aku for bait and then the mahi showed up and we baited up 2 of them. Then we started baiting for the bigger shibi and Scot started hooking up some 15-24 pounders on the light line, that is always fun. Back in the harbor all of these guys joined in the eyeball eating ritual gladly, I like it. This was a fun bunch of anglers, they had a good time. Aloha Capt Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Tom Cochran, Stephen Green, and Art Rendon had an exciting day catching 1 ahi, 7 mahi and 2 shibi.
We got a 4:00 start going to the X buoy on this day of 20 mph trades. We took a single mahi hit on our first pass,  got that one and went back and took one more mahi strike, and got it too. Then on to baiting and we got 3 more, not as many around today as there has  been. We caught some baits and after awhile of not seeing any mahi we took off going to the J buoy. On our way there we took a ahi strike and Steve reeled in a nice 105# ahi, on our new 130 Tiagra. At the J we caught 2 more mahi and some aku and small shibi. Back in the harbor  all of the guys ate shibi eyeballs, peer pressure is a wonderful thing. It was a fun day of fishing. these guys did great. Aloha Capt Rusty.

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Scot Beltinck, and Mike Newtown had an unbelievable day catching 19 mahi, 2 ono one 32 lbs shibi for a total of 500 pounds of fish.
Our day started at 4:30 on this 15 mph trades day headed to the X buoy (where else would we go). On our first pass we took a 4 banger, one ono, one mahi and 2 shibi one small one and one 32 lbs. On the second pass we took a double and got an ono and a mahi, just another average morning at the X buoy these days. Then we went to bait and Scot baited up one or two each pass. When they weren't coming in any more we went to the light line and caught baits to run live. With live ones out there a big mahi came in and ate one, and hooked up. We got that one a nice 29 lbs bully, then we had to wait till about 10:30 for the midmorning barrage, when the whole school came behind the boat. We got 6 in that one pass, it was the usual pandemonium with lines going every direction and fish all over the place. We only got one more mahi after that and it was time to go. No strikes on the way in, and Scot and Mike were not the eyeball eating kind of guys. But they were real troopers as they did not miss a chance to reel a fish in. Good going men you did great. Aloha Capt. Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Eddy Toney, and John Domila had a great day catching 17 nice mahi and some tunas.
We got a 4:45 start on this day of 15 mph trades going to the X buoy. We got the first pass at the buoy (as usual) and took a five banger mahi and got all five, great way to start the day. We trolled it one more time and got one on a lure and two on bait. Then on to baiting where Scot did a great job of getting the mahi to eat our baits, we had two and three on at a time for a while then it slowed down at about 7:30 so we caught fresh aku and shibi for bait and waited for the mahi to come back up. When we could get a good aku out live the mahi would follow better, but they were hard to get. We had one more good barage at about noon when we got three out of four, for a total of 17 mahi. We kept these guys busy reeling fish in most of the day. Back in the harbor they both ate eyballs no problem. It was a great day of fishing and you guys did an excellent job. Aloha Capt Rusty.

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Venu Divi, Mark Gates, Krishna Kakarala, and Kim Gates caught 27 big mahi and one ono for a great day of fishing action.
We got a 4:00 start on this day of 15 mph trades going to the X buoy. On our first pass we took a double mahi and got them both, second pass we took a triple and got them too. Them we baited and they just kept comming, we were getting 3 and 4 a pass. It was wild action untill 8:00 when a big shark showed up. Scot feed it to bring it closer to the boat so everyone could see it well. We then caught more aku and small shibi while we waited for the mahi to show up again. The shark made it a bit more exciting as it would try to eat our fish as we reeled them in, we were lucky and only lost one lure to the shark. The late morning bite came at 10:30 when the mahi came back up and we caught a few more then. On one of our last passes the shark followed us with a bunch of mahi around it, we hooked up 3 and got them all as the shark did not try to eat them. On our way in we took an ono strike on the last lure in the water as Scot reeled them in, a nice finale to a great day on the water. In the harbor it was easy to get Venu and Krishna, and Mark to eat eyeballs, Kim on the other hand did not even want to watch. You guys did great today it was a pleasure to take you fishing. Aloha Capt Rusty.

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Gary Smith, David McCarson, Brian Shirley, Jim Romberg, Brack Ricks, and Alvin Dews had fun reeling in 27 mahi and a few small aku and shibi at the X buoy.
We got a 4:30 start on this day of 15 mph trades bound for the X buoy. We had to race a small boat to be first at the buoy, but we were first and took a triple and got two mahi, then we went to baiting and they just kept comming  in on the baits and eating them, Scot was hooking up 2 or 3 or 4 each pass. It was wild action, lines going every direction, fish on this side and that, with wild fish flopping on the deck while we pulled in the rest of them. This is how we like our fishing to be, hot and heavy. After a day of fishing like this you are spoiled for life, this is hard to beat. We ended up with 27 mahi and some small aku and shibi for a total of around 575# of fish. In the harbor I got Brack and David to eat ahi eyeballs, good going men. These guys did real good, all the way around. Aloha Capt Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Don Kelly, Ben Harris, George Cook, and Jason West were kept busy reeling in 29 mahi and some 15# shibi for a very action packed day.
We got a 4:00 start on this day of 15 mph trades going to the X buoy. On our first pass we took a double mahi and got one, second pass we took a triple and got all three. Then we went to baiting and Scot started hooking them up 2 and 3 at a time, they just kept comming. By 8:00 we had one bag full and were working on the second bag. This was mahi fishing as good as it gets. When they finally stopped comming around every pass we jigged for aku and small shibi, and once in a while one or two mahi would follow and Scot would bait them up. In the end we had a total of 29 mahi and 10 shibi for a total weight of 750#. Good going men, you guys did great. Aloha Capt Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Jeff, Carol, and Aaron caught 4 1/2 mahi, 2 ono and some shibi and aku.
We got a casual 6:00 AM start on this day of 15 mph east winds going to the J buoy. When we got there the porpoise were there so we kept on going outside. We went out to 28 miles and found an open school of mahi and got one big one. Then we worked our way back up towards the X buoy and got 2 onos in the blind and never did find the floater they may have been from. At the X we got 3 more nice size mahi and some aku and shibi. We even saw some whales on the way in, there are not very many of them around now. We took a mahi strike on the way and something mangled it on the way in, it was not a shark, but the tail was gone and there were cuts all over the back half of it. In the harbor Jeff was game to try an eyeball, only after I showed him how I do it, that is to throw it up in the air and catch it in my mouth. It was a fun day of fishing. Aloha Capt. Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Tom Mugford, and Ryan Eckroth caught a lot of shibi and one nice mahi
We got our usual 4:00 start on this day of 15 mph east winds going to the X buoy. On our first pass we lost a mahi and lost one on the second pass too. Then we caught some small shibi and one aku and ran it live and baited for mahi but none came in. We jigged a while longer then set up and trolled on outside to about 25 miles and found nothing, so we came back to the X and got a nice mahi 4 miles outside it. Then we went down to the J buoy and caught 3 nice big shibi, the biggest one 30# on light line Tom did a great job on that one. I couldn't get these guys to join me in an eyeball pupu, maybe next time. Aloha Capt Rusty
