    Hey guys,

    My buddy and I went on a 3/4 day deep sea fishing trip on the Malahini. This was my first time catching yellowtail! I made a video on my trip to remember the epic trip.

    Setup:
    20 lb test
    5/0 live bait hook gamakatsu

    That's freakin' awesome man!

    I took my two boys out on the Malihini yesterday with hopes of accomplishing the same. The numbers have been up so I thought it was a good opportunity. You guys must have caught them all though! lol

    We had 48 people on board and only ended up with 21 small YT and 1 BFT. Luckily, both of my boys counted for a YT each. Capt. Mike took us 48 miles from SD and worked his butt off all day to try to put us on fish. Just wasn't meant to be yesterday. It was a lonnnnnnng day though, left the dock at about 5:45 and didn't pull back in until 7:15!

    Nice work! I'm booked for the 29th. Did you happen to see how good the iron bite was?

    Went out on this boat yesterday. The counts had been really great the last couple days, but we couldn't find kelp holding tuna. We still managed 60 YT and 5 Dorado on the boat and it was a blast with a fantastic crew. As for the iron, with the drift and everyone on one rail, it just wasn't possible to get in good casts so everyone stuck with the live bait.

    Yeah, it was exactly like what Sam described. Although I saw a couple people casting out and saw one catch one with an iron when the bite was insane and on both sides of the boat.

    Good luck out there man and have fun :)
