May Day!

Whew...it was ROUGH out there, but the Hobie Mirage TI held up like a champ! We started the day meeting up with our friend Chris “Hammah” Paglinawan. Got some bait ready, rigged it up, and zzzzzzzzzzZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ! We take a big ono strike and the fight was ON! Ono screaming out line and then POP...the ono bites through our leader and is gone. =(

The wind was supposed to be nice and light, but the weatherman was wrong again. Winds picked up to somewhere around 25 mph and we’d normally have to go in, but our TI Fighter handled it with ease. Trolled around more bait and we take a strike...the battle is on once again, and up pops a 17# shibi (yellowfin tuna).

After we landed the shibi the weather got worse, so we opened up our sail and flew in to end our day. =)
