Me, my friend Chase and our dads started fishing at 6:00am from Maui to Lanai. We caught this Ono on the backside of  Lanai. It was such a great summer day being out on the water with friends and family.

Ward Kollar got quite the surprise when this huge female Mako Shark began an aerial show right next to their boat while fishing in the waters of the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary.

Mahi Mahi- Fagatele National Marine Sanctuary

Written by
Mahi mahi are locally called Masi masi in American Samoa.  This one put up a spectacular battle about 5 miles offshore Fagatele Bay NMS.
This was my son Fynn's (17 years old) first sailfish,which we decided to keep.  He caught it on a light rod with 15 pound test.  He did an awesome job during the fight.  The American Samoan kids at the boat ramp were super excited when we hoisted the 98 pound fish out of the boat.
