Jon brought up a Menpachi within the first 10 minutes of getting our lines in the water. He also brought up a decent size Aweoweo shortly after.
Sadly for me I wasn't able to bring up anything. Must be the fishing gods aren't happy with me.
However, I was pleased with the fact that my new Nitro rod was able to cast out decently far. If I had to guess, I was regularly throwing a 2 oz lead about 75 yards out. We were fishing from a cliff so that probably skewed the numbers a bit, but in general I was pleased with the distances I was getting.
It was moderately windy, the current was strong, and we were getting stuck on Oahu fairly often, so after a few hours we called it a night. Not a great night for fishing, but I was happy to just get out there to test my new gear. Hopefully I'll get a chance to break in my new gear and catch something our next time out.
