Our Hobie TI In All Her Glory

We took our baby, Enjoy The Day, down to Haleiwa Beach Park with our friend/photographer Brian Yamauchi to do a photo shoot.



Here she is in all her glory!

Checking out the conditions...

Time to sail!

Riggin Her Up!

We've started rigging our new baby up. At first we just wanted to get her on the water, so we kind of rushed and threw things together. PVC rod holders tied on with zip ties and rope to the rear aka mounts, fish finder wedged in w/transducer hanging off the side of the kayak, etc.

First day out...One Fish,

Two fish,

Green fish, blue fish


Now we're getting serious and have been rigging her to the gills.

Storm was rolling in, so we had to move her inside the garage to install spray skirts...

Will post more pics when we're done! Don't turn that dial! =)

The Start Of A New Era

This is how our fishing journey has been going... shore fishing ->wading out to outer reefs -> fishing off of our surfboards -> fishing from a rubber raft -> kayak fishing -> and now we're here.

We finally got tired of using inferior brands of kayaks and have graduated to a Hobie Mirage Tandem Island!  As you all know, it's like having our very own Transformer!  At first we planned on only getting the hull to fish from, then one beautiful, sunny day, we went down to Kailua Beach and David "Boogie-D" Elgas got us HOOK, LINE, AND SINKER! After that demo and pedaling her in kayak mode we were IN LOVE!!!!!  We've only done a short sail so far just to get the kinks out, but have fished her in kayak mode and she worked like a charm.  We're looking forward to a steep learning curve and we believe this will push our fishing to a whole new level.
