We got a 5:40 start to the LL buoy on this day of light easterly winds. We were first to the buoy and got mahi on each pass for the first 4 times by the buoy. Then we went to the light line and started getting 4-9 pound aku and ahi every time we went past the buoy, it kept us busy. Every once in a while a mahi or two would follow our live bait and Scot would bait them up. In the end we had almost a full bag, or about 400 pounds of fish. One heck of a nice day of fishing.

We got a 4:50 AM start to the LL buoy on this day of 10-20 east-south-east winds. We were the second boat to the buoy and took no strikes trolling, so we went to jigging the light line. That worked as it always does and we started catching not so small aku, some over 10 pounds. It took a while before we got one small enough to run as a live bait. Then Dwayne caught a nice 20 pound ahi on 50 pound test, that was a good fight. Next Chris hooked a mahi on a jig and reeled it in. Then we saw a mahi and Scot baited it up. The aku boat Neptune came again but the aku weren't going for their jigs. We got some more mahi to make  a total of 5. Then on the way home some whales put on a show for us. In the harbor it took bribery to get Corey to eat an eyeball, his dad Dwayne offered him 10 bucks to eat it and he did it, good man. It was a fun day of fishing for the whole family. Aloha Capt. Rusty

It was raining lightly when we left the harbor at 4:30 AM on this day of 10-20 mph south east winds headed for the LL buoy. By the time we were 10 miles from the buoy it was pouring rain constantly. Then as if we had planned it the rain stopped just as we got to the buoy. Our first pass we got a nice 20 pound mahi, second pass Deb caught a 30 pound bull mahi. Then we went to the light line and got some small aku and ahi, running 2 aku for live baits. The aku boat Neptune came to the buoy and was lifting small aku for awhile and then left. About this time we made our first pass baiting and Scot baited up 2 nice mahi, we saw more so back up we went. On this pass Scot hooked one mahi up and I saw a big boil where a big marlin had just grabbed something 15 yards of our beam. Within 20 seconds there was a big marlin in our wake and it eagerly came right up and took one of our aku. Scot free spooled the reel to let her swallow and then set the hook. There was no jumping or any long runs just a steady pull on the line. Mike had it easy this fish almost swam right to the boat, for a fish this size it was not putting up much of a fight, it was hooked deep and hurt by the hook. Within less than 20 minutes this monster was at leader, Scot pulled her up and I sunk the flying gaff in to her and all hell broke loose. She passed the boat and broke the starboard outrigger pulling a marlin wheelie, that sent Scot and me to the deck as the flygaff rope pulled tight. The leader broke somehow and she stayed hooked on the gaff, We pulled her close again and put another flying gaff in her, this time when she ran I just barely got my hand out of a loop in the rope. Not before she gave me a gorilla handshake to remember her by. At this point we could just tow her around till she calmed down. This time she was done when she came up and we adjusted her attitude and pulled her through the transom door, all but her tail fit. Then it was time to go home, anything else would have been anticlimactic. In the harbor she tipped the scales at 669 pounds, obviously our record for the year. I had no problem getting everyone to eat eyeballs with me even though I was the only one to eat one from the marlin. This was Wendy and Mike's second time fishing with us. We like lucky folks like them to fish with us. Great job all around. Aloha Capt. Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Judd Feldman, Chris Ling, Karl Fooks, and Mark and Kyle Fooks, Karl got the mahi and Judd had a big marlin on for a long run
We got a 4:30 departure on this day of 20 mph north wind going to the LL buoy. No strikes trolling by , but on our first jigging pass Karl hooked a nice mahi and got it. The first live bait we put out had not been out for long before a big marlin came along and ate it. It proceded to strip almost all the line off a 14/0 reel while Judd sat in the chair watching it scream. This marlin did not jump untill it was 450 yards out, and at this point the line was going straight back behind the boat and the marlin was way over on our port quarter. We were backing down trying to keep some line on the reel when it did one more leap and broke the 180 pound test line. The big belly of line draging through the water put too much strain on the line causing it to break. Bummer. Right after we got all the line back on the reel and went back to the buoy the other boat there hooked up a monster marlin easily 800 pounds, that put on a great show for us before it broke his line too. Back in the harbor I got Karl and Kyle to eat eyeballs. It was a fun day. Aloha Capt Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Pete Shelton, and Robin and Michael Hahn, Michael got the 60 pound ahi on 50 pound test.
We got a 4:30 start on this rainy day of sw winds going to the J buoy. It was just getting light when we got there and we only caught small ahis on our first trolling pass, so it was on to the light line. The small aku and ahi were everywhere, and it was doubles most of the time, then we got a real screamer on and it was Michael who got to fight a 60 pounder on 50. He did a great job of working that fish up to the boat in about 15 minutes. That is our biggest ahi on light line so far this year. We then trolled to the X buoy and got a few more aku, then on in. In the harbor Micheal joined me in eyeball pupus, to end an action packed day. It was a fun day fishing with theses folks. Aloha Capt Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Joe Rhodes, Rob Preissinger, Joby Denny, Josh Jordan, and Nate Preissinger got to see two big marlin.
We got a 5:30 start to the LL buoy on this light wind day and had a double strike with 2 big 300 pound blue marlins screaming line out before we got to the buoy. Unfortunately they somehow got the lines crossed and we broke line on both of them. Sometimes 2 is not as good as one. At the buoy we got some small aku and ahi and Joby caught a nice mahi on 50 pound test. Then we went down to the X buoy and got a few more aku and ahi. On the way in we caught a nice 17 pound ono just outside the harbor. And in the harbor it was easy to get Joby and Josh to join me in some eyeballs, Josh even had seconds. You guys did good. Aloha Capt Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Mike Dolan, Anthony Cox, and Chris Carpenter caught 31 mahi, 3 onos amd 3 ahi for 600 pounds of fish
We took off at 4:30 AM this morning on another day of 25 mph trades bound for the LL buoy. On our first pass we took a 5 banger and got 3 mahi and 1 ahi all about 16 pounds. We trolled a few more passes and got 2 more mahis, then put out the light line and got the usual small aku and ahi. When Scot started to bait it was mahis every pass one after another, until they stopped coming. We had 18 at that point. We set up and trolled heading home and found the same current line that had been running by the X buoy. It was holding lots of good floaters and we went from one to the next catching mahi at each one. There were lots of doubles and triples. One net had onos and we got 3. Closer to home we took a 35 pound ahi strike and Chris got to battle that one. In the harbor I got Anthony and Chris to eat eyeballs with me. Solid seaworthy guys these are. Great day of fishing, our best so far this year. Good going men. Aloha Capt. Rusty

Click to enlarge Click to enlarge  Ray Stone, Judd Feldman, Chris Ling, Alan Amoth, Lauren Ling, and Cindi Feldman caught a clean sweep
It was another day of 25 mph trades for this 5 AM start to the X buoy. Just before we got to the buoy we found a small piece of wood floating and took a double ono and got them both. Then on our first pass at the buoy we took a double, a 15 pound mahi and an 15 pound ahi. Then on to the light line we went, but only small aku and ahi were coming up so we set up and trolled on out and found a current line with good old crusty floaters in it. Following the line we came to a nice net and took a double mahi and got them both, while we had those fish on we saw at least 100 more fish all behind the boat but they would not bite bait, very strange. On our way in we took another slam from a 50 pound striper and Judd got that one. We had one more striper strike but it came off. Then we found 2 open schools of mahi and got a double in one and a big 35 pound bull in the other. At the harbor I got everyone except Alan and Cindi to eat eyeballs with me. These are some seaworthy people, the kind we like to take out on rough days. Good going guys. Aloha Capt. Rusty
