I am happy to say the Sport fishing off Maui this season has been great! Lots of Mahi Mahi!
Aloha, sorry I haven't posted in a while. I seem to have so many projects now days + I just got back from 3 weeks on the "mainland". Tourists to Hawaii are always asking where we 'locals' like to go on vacation as we already live in 'paradise'.
I normally go see my Mom, then go visit someplace fun. This time around I took my youngest son to Yosemite National Park among other destinations. A different kind of Beauty from Hawaii. We got lucky... the end of April 2013 was perfect weather in my opinion and no crowds at all.
When i got back my e-mail box was full of photos from Kevin @ Rascal Charters. The fishing even before i left had been fantstic! Mahi, Mahi, and more Mahi. a few Tuna and Ono, but mostly Mahi! Averaging 4-10 Fish a day. 20-40#

While I was gone they came across a floater and brought in close to 15 Mahi.

* We caught a 33# Ono on Taipan II, i'd say during the last Halloween tournament, however we caught it after the time was up and we were returning to the harbor. That was a sad day of Fishing as we were the only ones who (would have) caught a qualifying fish.
** I am going out with Start Me Up again for this Years Spring Wahine Fishing Tournament; we are REALLY excited because the fishing is excellent right now and we hope this Saturday may 18th will be the same!! This year we have revised Jungle rules and we can be at our fishing buoy or spot by 5:30AM. We are leaving Lahaina @ 2:00 AM!! to go catch live bait for our Tournament. Wish us Luck ! :-)
