|Monday, November 10, 2008
Ono Noah here checking in with you and yours truly and wishing the very best as we embark on this holiday season!!!
These past few days the fishing has been unbelievable!! The Ono seem to be making a run back into the Aloha state a bit early this season, a 52 lb. caught in the Wahine tournament, and a 42 lb. caught with Start Me Up Sportfishing last week. We're hoping for the best!
On the 'Action' trip which leaves at 3:30 A.M. Craptain 'P-Rick' and Captain Steve Lambert 'Skillet' got all nibbled up out at N buoy. The bite has been on, and 'Skillet' didn't hesistate to rig a live mac and drop it off the back into the serene, deep blue Pacific Ocean. In a matter of seconds a blue dot was spotted darting in from the side about 20 yards back of the boat, instantly swallowing the live bait whole. A whole lotting of tugging, flipping, and line screaming, and 10 minutes later angler Karen from Connecticut had her first ever Mahi Mahi in the boat!
The sun began to come up and cast it's light upon the pristine cobalt colored ocean and the sky began to illuminate as mother nature painted a picturesque scenery with her immaculate palette.
The fish were still hungry, and 'Skillet' opted to feed a few more Mahi Mahi.
It didn't take long for a triple bite to take place, and three anglers getting busy turning the handle.
Scott from New Jersey, showing off his no look catch.
The flurry was on, it was amazing the amount of fish that were swarming behind the boat, frenzy of Mahi Mahi!!!
Karen's pole started to scream out line, the reel was blistering hot and there was nothing anyone could do to stop this fish. We looked up just in time to see a triple flip Mahi leaping and tail walking across the surface. It was Karen's 5th fish of the day, and this one proved to be mount worthy.
We headed back to the docks and proceeded to display our catch of the day!
Don from Connecticut had a 'Wicked adventure out there!' His wife mimicked the same words with enthusiasm, 'The fishing is wicked!'
Apparently the fishing has been wicked, well the dock bait also has been fairly wicked as well.
Sean from Texas (left) had his hands full when he turned the handle on this beautiful fish. Chuck and Henry (right) have fished their home spot in North Carolina the week before, and they 'wished we had this weather back home!'
Sam and his son Philip, from Maryland 'had to get off that Eastern Seaboard and do some fishing Hawaiian style!'
What a pleasure it was to meet all you folks!!! Take care and we'll see you next year!
The life of the land here in Hawaii is perpetuated in rightousness, beauty, and the opportunity to go fishing year round in warm weather and beautiful seas. Thank you for taking the time to read my report, it means the world to me.
