I did multiple checks at Kaupo Beach Park every so often finding nothing but on a scan at 0830 lo & behold there was a small but showing at KPB. When I go down there at 0835 I found Kawena (RH36) on the beach, with visible fishing hook and line on the right side. Multiple calls from Tracy, Mark, Hotline were all called, and the game was on. I managed to keep arrivers to say away from the location. When the HMMA volunteer arrived at 0939 she took over and I returned to Makai Pier. NOAA personnel arrived at 1000, and an outstanding operation did the perfect hook and line removal. Kawena departed to the water at 1021. Great job mob, Ya’ Done Good !!!
When I did a routine pan at RI fifteen minutes after Kawena’s departure I suddenly found a small animal just hauling out to Seal Rock Inlet on Rabbit. I wanted to believe that it could well be Kawena, but alas, it was not to be. The size was like, but I began to seen none of the heavy algae associated with Kawena, and the bottom line was that pesky penis began to show on this animals ventral side. It would turn out to be RG32 t 1035. He would later be joined be Kekoa (RK72), spending the rest of the day at Seal Rock Inlet.
Also at 0949 Sadie&PO1 would finish a water session at 0949. They would do 2 water sessions today, and remained at the west end of the beach on RI.
