Brent's Ahi

Another day on the job searching for the pot of gold. Maybe we will find something at the end of the rainbow?

I really wanted Brent to get his first Ahi for 2017, so we headed out along with Al.

Al took first watch and bam we hookup!

We gettum to the boat in 20 minutes and game over.

Such a grateful feeling to have a nice ahi on the boat.

Brent wanted to chill out with his first Ahi.

Mahalos to our land crew for all their help! Teamwork in and out of the water is key!

Awesome day

I see color! More to come...

This is how you look for birds. 

Fellow fisherman needed a tow, so put the Red Sea boat in tow mode.

Gold Rush

Loaded up the Red Sea boat with my friend Tim Rezantes and headed to the grounds. Been many moons since Tim went fishing so he was a little rusty.

Cathy also joined us and we were ready for some fun. Let out my Gaji lures and 25 minutes later BAM! We clear lines and game on!

We got one in the boat! Teamwork is key and Tim and Cat did awesome!

Back on the move we keep looking for birds and Tim is getting the fever. He accidentally falls off the boat and I yell man overboard. He climbs back in and we keep moving in search of gold.

We find more activity and boom! No.2 in the boat. Pick up a mahi, Ono and Otarus and head in.

Well Tim got his monkey off his back and all sore fighting fish. Cat did great and we were blessed.

My favorite!

Headed home to take a few pics. Missing Tim since he was over the moon. Mahalos to our land crew for all their help. Dad, Mom, James were key players in finding the gold.

Film day

Saw this cool little boat out today. 

Did some filming with our hsdtv crew.

Mahalos Travis for the beautiful shoot location.
