Hawaii Fishing News September 2020

HAWAII FISHING NEWS brings it all to you! Sportfishing in Hawaii is year-round! Aptly titled by HAWAII FISHING NEWS in 1977, the "Blue Marlin Capital of the World." Hawaii offers six species of billfish plus yellowfin (ahi), skipjack (aku), dogtooth, bonito, albacore & bigeye tuna. Other species of offshore game fish include wahoo (ono), dolphin fish (mahimahi), great barracuda (kaku) & rainbow runner (kamanu,or Hawaiian salmon). Bottom fishing is also popular in Hawaii with good catches of snapper at depths of 10 to 100 fathoms. Inshore waters of Hawaii, with 700 miles of fishable shoreline, draw the most activity from anglers. Heavy-duty shore casting rigs allow anglers to tackle giant ulua (jacks) of up to 200 lbs as they prowl the reefs at night. Medium tackle and ultralight fishing clubs have sprung up in Hawaii as anglers have discovered the excitement of fishing for the many other species that make the reefs and sandy channels their homes. Freshwater enthusiasts are not to be denied as Hawaii has more varieties of freshwater game fish than most areas of the mainland; these include largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, oscar, tucunare, channel catfish and rainbow trout. What all this adds up to? Hawaii is a great place to fish!

fly the flats

I went out to the flats to do some fly fishing for ‘o‘io with my friends Jorgie and Jake. I took a Sage Igniter 7-weight rod with a Hatch 5 Plus reel and Airflo bonefish flyline with Rio Bonefish tapered leader and 17-lb test tippet. I used a small brown shrimp fly that I normally use for ‘o‘io. We got in the water and started searching for ‘o‘io. It was very overcast, so it was really hard to see. We barely saw any fish for at least an hour. We were talking story while walking around and watching out for fish. Suddenly, I saw a flash and some stripes. I wasn’t sure if it was a barred or golden trevally, but I cast in front of it anyway. About two seconds after…

fly fishing guides in hawaii take on covid-19

Looking Forward COVID-19 and the uncertainty surrounding it, placed Hawai‘i’s fishing guides in an inauspicious situation. Suddenly, all of our future fishing trips disappeared and questions started to race through our minds: “How are we going to pay rent?”; “When is tourism coming back?”; “How are we going to buy food?” The bills didn’t just disappear like our bookings. We had zero income. How would we survive? With an uncertain future at hand, a group of guides decided to do what we do best — fish! We teamed up and joined forces to promote fishing in Hawai‘i via YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Facebook and other social media platforms such as <www.keaweadventures.com>. What we needed was content. With a few calls and text messages, we started our quest to promote fishing to the people,…

palafamala paddles’ virtual fishing tournament

Aloha is something that can be felt all throughout the Hawaiian Islands. The people of Hawai‘i thrive on human connection, whether it’s a gathering with the ‘ohana, a jam session, a fishing excursion or a casual cruise party at the beach. For the last several months, people have had to adjust to new ways of gathering in order to keep these traditions alive. Cameron Jacome, shaper and owner of Palafamala Paddles, knows the importance of keeping people connected during these challenging times. Originally from California, Cameron started shaping paddles when he lived with the Keahis about two decades ago. “They are a fishing family from Mala in Lahaina, Maui. Netting, diving and fishing of any kind is what that family loves. Pala, a small pan-fry fish, is the go-to for big…

Ahi Fever Strikes Again The Hilo Trollers pulled off a safe and successful combined Hilo Trollers and Eddie Doag Memorial Tournament on Sunday, July 19. The Trollers were playing catch-up after early season postponements, and it was an opportune time to honor the late Eddie Doag of the KEHAULANI, who had planned to run with the Hilo Trollers this season. Eddie’s Memorial Tournament attracted many captains and had the full support of the Hilo Trollers and organizational support from Dayton Sumiki of Goin Off Lures. The tournament was run as a benefit for the family. The end result certainly honored Eddie: family member Dennis Figueroa ran Eddie’s boat and captured the largest fish of the day, a 522.6-lb marlin. Additional prizes along with a healthy portion of the entry fees went…

the 7th inning stretch

The pandemic has slowed things down a lot for the famous charter boats in Kona this year, which created the perfect opportunity for locals to get on board and experience just how great the professionals are at our favorite sport. Craig Gamble and Ian Hogan had scheduled an overnight trip to South Point with their father-in-law in late June. However, the trip was canceled so they pursued “Plan B,” which was fishing for two days with Capt. McGrew Rice on Mark Bartell’s 40’ Gamefisherman, the AMBUSH. Yours truly was invited to join the guys on Sunday. McGrew is a skipper I have known all of his life; his father, the famous “Freddy Rice,” was my teacher, as well. McGrew has an exceptional talent for finding big fish, and his knowledge of Kona…
