Hawaii Fishing News September 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!

sailfish jumps on a jig

I have always been very passionate about fishing. Fishing has always been a big part of my life. I come from a family of skilled fishermen. I myself have been fishing for a long time but developed a passion for artificial lures about four years ago. I didn’t catch much in the beginning, however, after putting in the time I gained a lot of knowledge that would help me land my greatest catch by far. This is my story... Another trip with the boys turned out to be one of the best days of my life! It was my good friend’s last fishing trip before he joined the National Guard, so we knew we had to make it count. We were searching for a location that we knew had fish, Dennis…

catch a marlin by the tail!

On August 15, I caught a marlin by the tail while out on our boat, the SIERRA K. My husband, Ronnie Llanes the “Captain” a.k.a. my best friend, taught me everything I know about fishing. In fact, the marlin went for his lure that he created, which he calls “Buster.” It hit it twice then turned and went for the “bullet lure” on the Stinger 80 class stubby rod. The rod was screaming! We immediately cleared the lines and I jumped to the rod that was on the rod holder. I shouted, “We’re gonna get spooled!” I looked behind the boat and saw the marlin jump! Filled with excitement, I started reeling with all my might to keep the line tight. The line was coming in but suddenly there was a slack…

100-plus club news

Aloha. When I am not playing the bass for the group Ekolu, you can usually find me fishing in front of my hale in Paukukalo, Maui. During the midafternoon of July 17, I was throwing net for some live bait and was blessed with three large manini. I decided to cast my pole and slide some bait. Within 30 minutes, my pole bent and I had a 63.4-lb ulua on shore. I was stoked! The ulua was later officially weighed at New Maui Fishing Supply. I cast my pole out again, slid another live bait, and the pole went off! This time the fish spit hook, but I couldn’t stay and try again because I had to play a gig that evening. At the gig, I told the lead singer of…

molokai whippas's 44th fundraiser is unstoppable

It was another beautiful, late spring day, and the Molokai Whippas could only wonder what might have been. The 44th Annual Molokai Whippas Invitational Fishing Tournament became another victim of the COVID-19 pandemic that has plagued the world for well over a year. Earlier this year, the Whippas made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event. Despite the cancellation, the Molokai Whippas ‘ohana stepped up and really came through to help the Whippas attain their goal. A late decision was made to produce a limited-edition commemorative shirt. Artist and designer, Wayne Ng of Design Ng, came through with a great design and collaborated with Guy Inocelda, who operates T’s On Me, which screened the designs, to add masks to match the shirts. The combination was very well-received! Donations received from the…

Hawaii Fisheries Covid Bucks The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act finished Round One payouts, about $4.3 million for Hawai‘i’s fisheries impacted by COVID. An additional $3.7 million in federal funding provided by the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 has been allocated for Round Two funding to Hawai‘i fisheries. Coordinator Kirsten Moy, who is working with Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) Division of Aquatics Resources (DAR) Program Manager David Sakoda and staff, scoped and developed the Hawai‘i CARES Act Spend Plan. Their well-written CARES Act Support Final Report is out and itemizes where Round One’s money went. COVID smashed the demand for fish. Hawai‘i’s commercial fishers caught six million pounds less fish, equating to roughly $27 million less in revenue than in 2020. About 31 million pounds of…
