July 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!

man and the ‘ski - one for the books!

I grew up fishing on and off the shorelines of Maui. To keep it interesting, I fish different styles including ulua fishing from shore and trolling from a boat or jet ski. I started jet-ski fishing when I was a rescue driver out at “Jaws”/Pe‘ahi. Although fishing off my ski is a lot cheaper than boat fishing and doesn’t take as much preparation, it is very challenging. Best of all, it is another way to bring home fresh fish for my family, which I’ve been doing for many years. On May 30, 2020, I got one of my biggest ‘ahi ever. The adventure was a heartbreaker and dream come true all in one. It started when my friends, Glenn Santos and Ryan Rodrigues, and I launched on the south side of…

i caught my first ulua!

I’d waited for this day for a long time, and it finally happened. I caught my first ulua! It was an ‘omilu that weighed 13.7 lbs. Earlier that day, my dad had caught an ulua, and I was determined to catch the next one. My brother doubted me and was constantly telling me I had “dues to pay.” A couple of hours later, I cast out my line. After some time went by, the pole started to bounce and then it went off. Judging by the way the pole bent, it looked like a barracuda had taken the bait. It swam fast, straight to a rock wall. I ran down to the “empty lot.” My line was stuck on a rock, but I didn’t know that. I thought my line had snapped…

lucky hunter - it’s a lifestyle

What a couple of blessed overnight trips! One was just a quick late night family mission, and I caught both this nice ulua, and an omilu in the morning. On the other trip, Chucky and I pulled into a spot, just as a group of guys were leaving. They said we could have it, as they had been there for three days and had not picked up even one strike. We brought only one pole each - and mine was a brand new one. As usual, we first caught some bait, then casted out our slide baits. Chucky landed his ulua just after midnight, and as soon as we got it up on the rocks, the bell on my lucky new pole goes off! We were doing a tag team battle with not just…

lands first ulua in 10 minutes!

My friends, Kelsea and Christian, and I were enjoying the Memorial Day floatilla outside the bridge at Moanalua Bay. We had fished earlier that morning all the way to Makapu‘u but did not produce anything. After assisting another boater back into the marina with engine trouble we met back up with the other boats. A friend wanted to head back in and barbecue. I asked Kelsea and Christian what they wanted to do and Kelsea exclaimed, “Lets go out fishing again!” We headed toward Diamond Head this time. Before we reached Black Point this 14-lb. ulua hit one of the lures. Kelsea took charge for about 10 minutes to crank it in on a 9/0 Penn Senator. We were about 30 fathoms deep. This was Kelsea’s first deep sea fishing catch in Hawai‘i.…

attitude is everything!

We all have experienced wonderful days fishing as well as not-sowonderful days fishing. What role does our attitude play in determining a good day or bad day? The NALU KEA is the last of Hawai‘i’s haole sampans. She was built in 1988 for the sheer enjoyment of sportfishing all of Hawai‘i’s waters. She is sturdy, excellent in rough conditions and extremely comfortable while still very efficient and safe. We love taking the NALU KEA to South Point, even if the weather is problematic. The fishing was slow during the first few months of 2020, but we heard reports that the ono were gradually schooling along the coast, so we gambled on an overnight trip at the end of May. Our crew of COVID-free quarantiners were anxious for an escape from “house arrest,”…
