Guy got to go out for a day of offshore action with my good friend Bob Duerr on his boat the "Mo Betta"
The day lookedpromising with a nice little rainbow over Pu'uo vent. Seas not to bad for Hilo standards.
Guy, aka silverfly got all covered up for the hawaiian sun. We ran south looking for big ahi. We were he first boat to hit "D" buoy and when we circled the yellow FAD the shotgun went off and broke the green stick and almost took the rod out of the boat, only to be saved by the saftey, but as Guy got to the rod the fish threw the hook, big ahi!
We trolled to another buoy that we knew had some finicky mahi on it. We finally got them on some bait, they refused Guy's beautiful flies. They had never seen such beautiful flies and were afraid to destroy them.
Can you see Guy's mahi?
A little easier.
Guy with dinner, yes the fish is out of water and has a big gaff in it.
Back at the dock, we ended up getting 6 mahi to 15lbs. Guy was good fun to fish with. He is snorkeling down at Kapoho today, hope he gets a couple of papio.
Meanwhile my friend's got this Ahi on the way back in. So we just missed something like this, but that is fishing. I look forward to fishing with Guy again in the future. Mems.
