Kayak Fishing Offshore Oahu
Here is some GoPro mahimahi footage that my good friend Matt Tanaka edited for me.
"Before 7am I had caught about a dozen baits and began fishing bigger gear"
It was a beautiful day on the north shore of Oahu. The morning started with an early paddle in the dark to get to the fishing grounds. The action had been steady so I was anxiously waiting for the sunrise. As the sun rose on the horizon we were fortunate to find an abundance of bait fish.
Before 7 am I had caught about a dozen baits and began fishing with the bigger gear. It didn't take long for my pole tip to start twitching indicating a very nervous and scared live bait. Soon after the rod bent over and my Bullbuster braided line began peeling from the reel. After a short fight I had a nice sized mahi in the fish bag.
"My Bullbuster gear continues to produce for me and I can't wait to see what holds in store for us this season!"
Unfortunately, throughout the day i took a few strikes that resulted in an empty hook but that's fishing. Just as I was thinking about calling it a day I took another strike and when I looked up I saw a beautiful mahi leaping from the water lit up in its battle colors.
In a couple minutes I had my second mahi of the day and dinner for family and friends. My Bullbuster gear continues to produce for me and I can't wait to see what holds in store for us this season! Aloha.

Why Getting Your Fluorocarbon In Bulk Can Help You Spend More Time Fishing - One way to get ready for an intense season of spring fishing is to pre rig leaders. If you are a series fisherman get a bulk spool of fluorocarbon and get tying! A 50 yard skein is going to be a waste of time. Get out a box of ziplock and a sharpie and get rigging!
Why Buying Braid In Bulk Can Help You Spend More Time Fishing - We all know braid is more expensive than mono but it also lasts a whole lot longer. When you buy your braid in bulk you get economies of scale but thats not it! You actually end up saving yourself a heck of a lot of time re-spooling when you use it as backing and only replace your mono topshot. If you are serious fishermen, this is the way to go.
Getting Your Swivels In Bulk Packs Can Help You Spend More Time Fishing - Again it all comes down to preparation. Get a bulk pack of swivels and keep on box on your boat or travel case, and keep the other pack safely tucked away in your fishing closet to avoid any corrosion.
