Happy Birthday Mom!

Wishing our mom, Earline aka "mama crow"Nakamoto a very happy birthday!  She's the backbone to our family and works so hard always behind the scenes getting it done!  We love you very much and appreciate all you do!

Waves been pumping this week so got a chance to ride the bigger boards!  Stay safe out there everyone!  Cold front coming through the island so expect some wet weather soon with breezy winds for 2nd half of the week.

Kagami Dinner

Had a fun dinner with the Kagami ohana this weekend with more ono grinds.  Was nice to finally get together with them and talk about family and fishing.  Something we all share in common.

Even 3 month old Noah was ready for some poke and sashimi!  Mama Jaime got her fill of fish too.

Of course grandpa crow had to try and feed um, ha ha!  Thanks to the Kagami and Miyasato family for a fabulous dinner and their friendship.

First trip out fishing for 2019.  Big Al was finally able to join us again after a busy holiday.  Al had to work the night before and was up for 36 hours this day.  Thats a hardcore fisherman!

It was a very calm quiet day but we managed to find dinner.

Along with some Akus and Otaru for sashimi.  Can't wait to use our dry box!  Keep you posted!

Project Pau!

Nice to see my cousin Terry and her family (Kevin, Alan, and Jeff) in town.  We got to spend some time with them eating, eating and eating..Here we are at Tianos in Waipahooo eating the pilipino pood. 

Finally finished making our Red Sea dry box.  This double decker box is custom made and lots of long hours, blood, sweat put into this one.  Hope it last forever!

As you can see it is ready for drying, now we just gotta go get some fish…to dry!
