Epic - congrats John.
Great report too.
A big fish on a small boat in 'sporty' seas is serious challenge.
All the more satisfying because of it though Wink Cheesy
Well done mate, Justin

One of the wildest things I've ever seen is 2 or 3 Hawaiians in an aluminum duck boat with one 130 heading out of Honokohau Harbor onto the grander grounds.

I saw these two guys at the boat ramp with a jet ski, dragging one of those sleds like they use for rescue, two 130's and a spare can of gas.   A guy told me they are actually pretty good at it.

Congrats John,   I just saw your post and pictures .    😮 wow, I’m dumbfounded by this fish 🐟.
    I’m sure your buddys will remember the fun, not the work as well.
Thanks for posting your trip.     It was awe inspiring for me personally.😮🎣
