Well, we got a lifetime of memories and an adventure to share for a long time to come. We weren’t able to rustle up any ulua on this fishing trip but maybe the next time. Packed up at around 9am and we were on our way home by 10am. We both were pooped out and I headed to sleep soon after the GT Masters Weigh-In & Awards Ceremony (I just woke up at 11p and I am writing this post at a little after midnight to update everyone).
Boy! What an adventure this was! I’ll do it again but I’ll let our pictures speak for themselves. Also, I hope everyone enjoyed the mobile posts (sorry for any screw-ups) via this blog and Facebook fan page from Ka’ena Point.
Congratulations to all the winners in the GT Masters Cup 2010. Ho’omaika’i also goes out to Evan Abraham, who had the winning ulua at 56.4 lbs. (I’ll post GTM results as soon as I can, but gotta go back to bed now).
Big mahalos goes out to my fishing partners, Willy & Sherwin, our families (Aweau, Elisaga & Felipe ‘ohana), our friends (a special mahalo to BJ and Kevin for coming out!) and supporters for making our first shoreline fishing tournament together possible! But, we’re letting everyone know that it won’t be our last and we’ll get ‘um the next tournament! Mahalo a Nui Loa!
Rough night! No hanapa’a! As we continue our quest to catch us some i’a (fish) for the tournament. Spirits are somewhat tempered with adrenalin now subsiding, we approach the new day with skepticism due to the reports that big surf is on its way (but we’re in a safe spot and very safety conscious) and still windier than heck (15-25 mph winds). The kind that feels like it smacks your face just before it hurts. Even more, our fishing poles, reels, etc., are all encrusted with Hawaiian pa’akai (sea salt) and we got limu (seaweed), laundry-style on our lines in the water. Auwe!
Drank water and downed a cup of warm instant coffee. Still waiting on brunch though from our friend, Brock. Hmmm getting a little hungry! Caught a bunch of small baitfish while my friend, Willy, works his ulua (giant trevally) poles. However, he’s getting small-kine frustrated because it seems like most of the limu gets on his line while mine are limu-free! His new nickname is, Limu Man! LOL!
We heard everyone had a hard night too and no fishing action. In fact, one of our fishing partners, Sherwin, left for the eastside. We decided to stay and take our chances at Ka’ena.
So we need everyones prayers to help us out to get a Big One for our keikis! That’ll be much appreciated!
OK, so it took awhile to get ready and hit the road. But we were able to finally set up our camp and eventually throw out our ulua poles. Ate our Zippy’s Zip Pac and now enjoying the sound of surf at Ka’ena Point. I’m posting while we wait to hopefully soon hear the sound of ulua bells going off!
