    Former 'Let's Go Fishing' host dies at age 66
    -------------------------------------------------------------




    HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - One of Hawaii's local fishing icons died early
    Wednesday morning.


    Hari Kojima, former host of "Let's Go Fishing" and "Hari's Kitchen," passed
    away in his Kaneohe home.


    According to family members, Kojima was battling the final stages of
    cancer.


    Kojima began his career as a Tamashiro Market fish cutter.


    He was 66 years old.

    I used to religiously watch this show every Sunday.....
    He could cut some fish..........
    God Bless.... Hope you're catching the Big Ones that got away.

    My condolences to the Kojima family. Got a lot of good memories watching him on tv, especially him feeding fish eyeballs to Bruce Carter, LOL... Maybe that's what he is doing with Bruce now, still feeding him eyeballs.
    Hari, thanks for your recipes, good eats, sharing your talent of fish cutting, and fun times on tv!
    Aloha,
    Jimmy

    That drink was Olympia Beer, and Bruce used to tank that stuff down, chili or no chili ;)

    That Sunday lineup of Wild Kingdom, The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau, Let's Go Fishing and The Wonderful World of Disney had me glued to the TV set every week.

    I remember when Hari would prepare some poke or sashimi, and hand a plate to Bruce. He'd put it in his mouth and chew on it for a while with a pained smile on his face, and nod his head until they'd cut away to commercial. Rumor had it that Bruce would spit it out as soon as they were off camera! :D

    I wish Hari fair winds, calm seas, and many solid 5-bangers in that big ahi pile in the sky.

    Went fishing with Harry on Midway Island for a week. Had to limit the boat trips to two hours. We would fill the boat with Ahi. By far the best time of my life on the water with the MASTER of Hawaii fishing.

    Aloha Harry........
