Got a later start Sunday morning. Headed to my favorite hole in which I knew would produce well. Those of you who know the islands well probably could figure it out based on the picture. We dropped our lines in right at slack and had two on in a few minutes. Let three small ones go... Lines back in, got a 25incher in the net, but it went back as it was just shy of keeping. Hooked into several other fish but the barbless rule was proving to make things tricky - and they were just picking at the baits. Finally hit this guy (29inch) about an hour and a half into the morning. I spent the rest of the time trying to put my buddy on one since I got my one keeper, trying to keep our drift in the right spots. He hooked, and lost, 3 nice fish... He is new to the sport lol. We hooked around 10 fish, landed 5 in roughly 2.5 hours, but 4 were just shy of 26inches. Gave it a three because we didn't get our second in the cooler, and the fish were relatively small.

Pretty sure there is a 2 hook limit in area 7... I mean, that would help though ;)

There is a two hook limit, but two barbless treble hooks would be fine. I had to check the regs on that...

I do know that spot. I got one there last May. Going to have to read the regs again, as I do not remember barbless trebles being banned.
