    they look like Spanish sardines?

    Round Herring (Red eye Round Herring?) would be my guess due to the size of the eye. Nice job on the Skippys and BFTs.

    We couldn’t have asked for a better time. Nonstop from start to finish. Capt Harlan and Capt Monty had us on fish all day...and we enjoyed the stories and conversation just as much. Will be back soon.

    Great news you guys! So glad you are putting successful trips together after a lot of bumps in the road. The only way to survive is to put the pedal to the metal and blast on through! You are an inspiration!

    Skippies are really not much different than black fin either raw or cooked. Great video. It reminds me of several trips we took on outer banks years ago when the mate would throw out chum and bring 40 to 60 pound yellowfin up and we would freeline a chunk out and hang on. This was stand up fishing and you come to the dock with your knees black and blue from slamming into the side of the boat from the waves and the fish....had to do the dance around the boat when you had three on at a time. A couple of trips we were back at the dock before noon with our eighteen fish limit....took a lot longer to clean them than it did to catch them. You get that fish up next to the boat and it would peel a hundred yards of line off and your arms felt like they were going to fall off for the next few days. On one trip my brother caught a forty pound wahoo on eighty pound mono leader line when it ate his chunk bait. His first wahoo. Got lucky and hooked it in the corner of the mouth.

    Blackfin don’t require an HMS permit but skipjack do - correct?

    IF you ever rent a boat ask for one
    The permit goes with the boat

    Good tip! We do rent a boat each year when we come there. I didn’t know the rental places might have the HMS permit.

    Thanks!
  • AOKRVsAOKRVs Posts: 1,562 Captain
    Yes most of them will have a HMS permit
    you have to ask for it

    Skippys are my #1 favorite for making poke & sushi.
    Your bait looks a lot like cigar minnows to me.

    Real nice catch.
  • piner_wahoopiner_wahoo Posts: 2,728 Captain
    guess it was some kind of sardine?
