Good Morning HFN Gang,
The other morning when I was kayak fishing on the west side of Maui in about 50 feet of water, I caught a few menpachis before the sun came up.
As the sun got pretty high in the sky the bite stopped, and then about 20 minutes later I hooked into this one. It was fighting enough that I thought it was a small papio or omilu. Super shocked when I got it on the surface and it was a bomber 'aweowe.
