At 0922 I found a 1005 molted Aukai (RL12) and Kea (RN46) together, mid beach above Seal Rock Inlet on Rabbit Island. Both would remain all day.
On a pan at 0945 I found a newly arrived Kala (RH76) and Kekoa (RK72) on the left end rock flats. They also would remain all day.
Team Billand’s first check in came at 0927, advising that they had been following a swimming animal from Yoke’s to Pray For Sex (Makua). At 0940 they called again with a confirmed (by tag) ID of R8HY. The 1000 call was a bit more disturbing, in that they advised there was a visible large hook, with line and swivel in the lower right jaw. Tracy was immediately notified. He never hauled out, and the Billands continued their observations until losing him at 1100. Keep your eyes open guys. The boy needs your help.
I awoke dark and early as usual hoping to find something on the blog about the Turtle Bay news, from HMMA, but alas there was nothing. Tammy & Dave went up today and provided some Ua Malie & PO5 shots. Thanks guys !!
Our pal Val came through with shots of Pohaku & PK3 from her shift today. Thanks Val !!!
