Hawaii Fishing News May 2021

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!

hawaii's newest state records

1.975-lb Manini On April 2nd, the second day of mullet season? my dad and I planned on going out to throw net. We had high hopes of getting mullet because we’d seen them in the same area for the past month. As we were walking the shore, we had a hard time seeing fish because the water was a little murky and the winds were blowing. We saw a few mullet here and there that were small and not really the size we were looking for. After walking 50 yards or so, we saw a school of palani feeding on limu. The palani were in eating mode with their tails sticking straight up out of the water. As I slowly sneaked up on the palani, I bent and crouched whenever necessary so…

maui goes fishing

Our March 28th trip was planned a couple of months earlier by cousin Scott from O‘ahu. Scott and I headed out of Lahaina at 5 a.m. to pick up cousin Isaac. We went to Island Grocery Depot to get food and ice for three days and two nights. While on the Haleakala Highway, almost to Pukalani, my truck’s differential seized. We called AAA for a tow back to my house in Lahaina. We weren’t giving up on the trip, though. We packed up Isaac’s truck and headed to Kaupo. We found an open spot called “Plenty Keawe Point.” At 1:30 p.m., we started setting up the ulua poles. We cast before dark and slid our first baits before 8 p.m. We sent our second slide of tako bait down at midnight. Twenty minutes…

100+ club news

I remember talking a few months back with a friend about whether I’d release or keep a potential 100+ ulua if I ever got the chance to land one plugging. We both came to the conclusion that it would be a lot more epic to see a beast like that swim off, than be killed for the trophy. A recent Friday evening, when I was fishing solo, about 15 minutes after the sun had set, I hooked into something big on the topwater popper. After fighting it for five minutes, I knew it was over 80 lbs. I battled it for about 20 minutes, gaining foot by foot, hundreds of feet of line, and getting stuck on reef and thinking it would cut me off at any moment. I finally got the fish…

our first ahi of the year!

My ‘ohana and I had a chance to get out on the water after three long months. We went out on a Friday night because we had ‘opelu orders to fill. The bite wasn’t too great, a strong wind was blowing from the south, and rain started dumping not long after we left the harbor. The rain didn’t let up until 5:30 or 6 a.m., and we were all tired and soaking wet. We pulled the chute and trolled out to the kampachi cage with the hopes of catching an ‘ahi or marlin. Up north were more heavy rain clouds coming our way, so we didn’t stick around too long. Dad and I got our hopes up when we saw marks on the fish finder, but we had no strikes. We…

amazing spring diving conditions on kauai

I’ve been fishing and diving for most of my life. I’m 16, and I was born and raised on Kaua‘i. Three of my friends and I planned a boat dive. The day before, I went diving at the same spot and shot an 8-lb uku, so I knew there were going to be fish there. On the day of the dive, the conditions were amazing with good weather and flat, clean water. We jumped in at the first spot and had super-clean water. We could see the bottom at 50 feet. We swam along and looked for some nice-sized fish. We came across some moana kea goatfish. The first drop was 40 feet. We hit the bottom and “dusted” the reef. The biggest fish came in and I got a “stone”…
