Hawaii Fishing News December 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!

still “a fish of a lifetime”

I spent a fun-filled overnighter hanging out with some childhood friends. I had been looking at the moon and it was calling, so I got in touch with my friend Austin. Luckily, he also was having that same strange feeling to go fishing. We made some fast arrangements and decided it was a safe bet to go fishing someplace close to town. Fast-forward to the next morning. Austin called to say that his dad had just gotten settled in on the Big Island and was probably going to join us. I told him, “Sweet. Can’t wait.” I also told him that one of my friends who was just starting out was coming, too. It would be one of his first trips. He was going to tag along with one of our…

welcome the newest 100-plus club members!

A Monstah Surprise It was just a normal Saturday afternoon on October 17, 2020, when my seven-year-old son, Karsen, asked if we could go fishing. I quickly checked the tides knowing it was going to be a dark night with no moon, so I asked him if he would want to camp overnight to try and catch ulua. He said yes, but only if his cousin, Kapena, could come. That’s when I called my brother, Keone, and asked him if he’d want to stay over with us. After asking where I planned on going and checking the tide changes that night, he packed his things in a hurry. That afternoon, about 3:30 p.m., we were at the spot. The water was flat, and everything was in our favor for a good time.…

what rod do i use?

It was the late 1970s when I started seriously whipping for ulua (G.T.s). After reading a magazine article about surfcasting for striped bass off the beaches of New Jersey, I bought an 8½- foot S-glass, two-piece, fast-taper spinning rod and a Penn 550SS spinning reel. I loaded the reel with 15-lb test monofilament line, bought some wooden lures the thickness of a broom handle and started whipping. I remember my first trips in the early 1980s to Christmas Island. Imagine trying to cast a 10-foot Ugly Stik rod with a Penn 900 reel loaded with 50-lb test mono and a lure the size of a water bottle. Talk about work! Even the young guys couldn’t cast for half an hour without stopping to rest. But we were after 25-, 35-, even…

DOBOR Before the Court The Department of Boating and Ocean Recreation (DOBOR) was brought before Honolulu’s First Circuit Court in a complaint by an Ala Wai Boat Harbor live-aboard boater. The boater alleges that DLNR and BLNR Chair Suzanne Case and DOBOR Administrator Ed Underwood, among others, have improperly raised mooring fees and have refused to disclose secret negotiations with developers to privatize Hawai‘i harbors. Attorney Erik Rask and his wife have a DOBOR permit to live on his sailboat at Ala Wai Harbor. Erik’s first complaint against DOBOR is what he claims is an improper 2019 DOBOR mooring fee increase. Erik argues that in 2011, with the passage of Legislative Act 197 (H.B. 1566), DOBOR was granted the authority under HRS § 200-10(c)(1) to get a harbor’s appraisal and then annually…

shearwater release ceremony goes viral

The annual E Ho‘opomaika‘i ‘ia na Manu ‘A‘o (A Cultural Release of the Native Newell’s Shearwater) event was not slowed down by the COVID-19 crisis this year. Instead of having schoolchildren attending, the ceremony was filmed so a wider audience could view it virtually. The event was organized by the Kaua‘i Endangered Seabird Recovery Project (KESRP) and the Save Our Shearwaters (SOS) program. Kumu Sabra Kauka of Island School led the blessing as five ‘a‘o (Newell’s shearwater) fledglings that had been grounded by light attraction and rescued by SOS were successfully released out to sea. “Because of the global pandemic, we couldn’t have schoolchildren attend the release this year, which was a real shame as their enthusiasm and joy at seeing the birds up close is such an integral part of it,”…
