Feevah Continues

Another fun day of rough water fishing. Having good balance is important on a rocking boat.

Man down.

Found the birds then bam!

Got one in the boat,gill and gut then brine well.

Reset lines and hookup! Starboard corner! Big boy in the boat! Not even 900 am and coming in!

Decide to check one more spot on the way in and hook this guy!

Another great day of fishing for the Red Sea crew. Thanks to our land and sea crew for all their help.

Strike 3

Thank God for another beautiful day in Hawaii. No matter how rough the seas are having a good vessel and crew makes all the difference.

Jon tried the patch but it didn't work for him. 

Al had diarrhea issues and couldn't hold it in these rough seas. So we ran the doo doo boy colors on the starboard corner and took two big strikes losing my two gaji lures.

Then we found the magic carpet, cargo net! Ran past it and bang!

Got um in the boat with great teamwork.

Took some pictures and headed in.

Thanks to the Red Sea crew and land crew for making it all happen! Summer has officially started!
