First fly rod pelagic on my boat

Mingo

the Menehune stole my beer
I landed the first fly rod pelagic on my boat this week. It felt great to break out my Cam Sigler and wrestle something with serious fast-twitch muscle fibers. We started the day popping for trevally and deep-dropping with bait for bottom fish when we spotted dozens of birds wheeling overhead and diving on bait. Then...we spotted the greenies pushing the bait to the surface. It was nuts, just like cruising into a Discovery Channel documentary shoot. Flying fish everywhere, birds diving and hovering, mahi and skipjack crashing from below and everything in a state of frenetic open-water pandemonium. I was able to hook and defeat a good fish and provide several dinners for me and my awesome friends.

One good fish, then the blitz was over as fast as it started. True ocean bliss.

Aloha.

Nice nabeta. I got 4 mahi on election Tuesday. There is a huge mahi over here like 80lbs that I have had take a live shibi 8 times only to spit after 100 yrd runs. It is a monster and just crazy smart. Mahi are so much fun lots in Hawaii now.
