Blessed Day!

Grey skies with bumpy seas today but rumors were fish was biting so loaded up and joined the circus of hungry fisherman.
Al had zero sleep last night so told him to nap since no birds were around. Then in the blind it happened! 
Outriggers slammed down and we hooked up. 130 reels almost spooled and lines crossed we managed to land two nice ahis.
Al gill and gutted the fish and got it on brine.
Took a few pics and put these babies on ice for a day.
Dreaming of catching more ahis as the season is here! Thanks to the Red Sea crew for all your help. We were truly blessed today!


Long day but happy day! Full story to come...

Fun Fishing Day!

Pier was empty past week probably because bite was slow and rough weather, but we really wanted some sashimi.
Checked with my crew and they were game to go. 
Al had one hour of sleep after coming straight from work.
James was feeling sick but stuck it out.
Got one fatty Ono which weighed in 46 lbs.
And a bunch of Akus for our family and friends. Thanks guys for a fun day of fishing and all your hard work.
