Default Year would not be complete without a BLUE MARLIN!! Lil Kahuna SCORES

Well the crew of Lil Kahuna tried like hell to catch some yellowfin but only a few blackfin to show for our efforts. We started fishing Horn around 9AM and didn't leave until 10:45 PM with the exception of one small diversion. Just before sunset I was feeding outa pogy chunk and then all of a suddenthe chunk stops sinking and I"m like great finally got a fish. I reel tight and fish on. Fish immediately starts running away from the rig. Hmm kinda odd for a tuna but let's see. A few minutes later a rat blue comes out of the water. This guy put on quite a show and gave Craig a hard time. First and only Blue for Lil Kahuna in 08. After that get a call from Shady Lady and they've found a small pod of killer whales some 6-7 miles from Horn. We choose to leave fishing for a while and attempt to get a glispe of the whales. Well the sun wasn't kind and dipped below the horizon before we could located the pod. Went back to Horn and nothing more but blackfin. I've got a short video that I'll post the link as soon as Youtube has processed the video...

Happy New Year.

I would run that far any day for even a chance at a blue. But you and your crew released one. Good job I know it made your trip. Congrates, are in order. Gene

Awesome!!! That's a great way to end a fishing season. Congratulation!!clap What were the sea conditions like? The reports sounded like it was a little sloppy out there.

Jeff, I was thinking you might be out there, running out 2-3 swell N wind following sea, seas layed down to nothing for the rest of the day and most of the night. South wind picked up 10-15 around 9 causing white caps but that was it. Three or four La. charters were rig hopping at Horn so it seems the YF were very elusive. Nakika was supposedly on-fire last week, but we saw Skirt Chaser come from there to mess around Horn from sunset to around 9pm then they went back south, I think they saw the orcas. Shady Lady fished Nakika last night, hope they tore em up. The Blue Keith caught was peculiar, never ran more than 50 yds from the boat and kept coming up boatside green (I think he was mad he ate a chunk) and when I kept letting go of the main (no leader) he would run out about thirty yards and start jumping. I billed him three times attempting to clear the hookbefore we decided to cut the line. Dang that fish saved the trip in a major way! Congrats Keith job well done:letsparty
