    Waianae 6/20/18, a first for me....

    That is one helluva nice catch. Nice bloody bilge! Are you sure that was a Blue? Those pectoral fins look awfully rigid which makes getting that fish in the boat all the harder!

    Banks - 3/18 - mahi, ono, and an a-hole

    I have had my center rigger run over at crazy corner with no response from the entangled prop of the guilty boat! Of course I thought I was hooked up until i saw the boat only trolling away! He most likely cut his outdrive seal and suffered far more damage than my lure and a few hundred yards of...

    There are many different lures, bait and techniques to use at the buoys. Its best to go prepared for as many as possible as there is no sure fire way that the fish will cooperate every time. As posted the "coin" works great. You will see the fish suspended in 50' to 200' of water and the best...

    Matching set of Penn 80TW International II

    I sold the 80's and decided to also part with a set of Penn 50's 2 speed reels. They are mounted on a nice set of Calstar rods that I would be willing to part with or keep. Whichever as long as the offer is fair. They are in great condition. Thanks, Steve

    Matching set of Penn 80TW International II

    Selling a matching set of Penn 80TW International II single speed with matching 5' poles with straight aluminum butts. Reels are 8 out of 10 and Poles are 9 of 10. $500.00 each prefer to sell as a set and would consider selling reels without the poles.

    new boat owner - any insight on fishing spots/techniques?

    I suppose the first question would be what make of boat do you have and what type of gear do you have. A 17' boat can get you out there and back. You just have to choose your battles.

    prefered Tackle store on Oahu?

    Regarding Butch at Hobbietat, he may sell you something but guaranteed its going to get bit. At first I looked at him through the corner of my eye and then ran or worked what he suggested and Bam plenty fish in the Box. Very Knowledgable Fisherman.

    Looking for a charter captain-Waikiki

    12/14 buoy action

    Congrats on your catch! Hope all of your catch went to good homes. Some look a bit small. Then again I suppose its better to catch a non breeding size. Some nice size shibi in the mix.

    Should we be worried?

    LongRigger thanks for comparing Ak to Hawaii.

    Trolling speeds / lure distance

    Well in my extremely humble opinion! I like to watch my lures work. If they are lazy I bump it up a notch. If they are jumping all over the place Ill slow it down a bit. Every boat, like previously said, bites different. Depending on your power and your hull only sea time will show you the way...

    Bryan! Maybe you should start your own post instead of spouting your opinion on another fisherman's post. Isnt it obvious that hopu Kahi is fishing commercially? Your Bio states that you are retired. Unlike the other 90% we both know that you can fish for fun.

    How light is too light for Ahi

    Of course everyone has an opinion and a preference. Ive been spooled by a donkey on an 80 with 100Lb. Today we picked up an Ahi 160+ on an 80 spooled with 130, but the kicker was that we were running a light 5 inch lure with 130 lb. leader. One of the lessons learned today was that unless your...

    We headed out of Maunalua Bay on Tuesday. The Plan was to head to the Banks and follow the ledge South.

    Why Tuna hang with porpoise

    Is it possible that they work together? The porpoise find the food and the Tuna help chase it to the surface. Then the porpoise chase the tuna away after we show up to pick a couple off. They have an interest in protecting their resource. Thoughts?

    Renting a boat this week (11-5,6,7-09)

    Kona has great fishing. I rented a boat from Kona a few years ago. They do not have outriggers and the Depth Finder does not show the deep fathom ledges. Therefore, if I were you, I would run the ledge (40 fathoms) up until you want to run out to the FADS. Pick up sum bait at the local shops and...

    Why We Have No Fish

    Everyone has an opinion. The Shibis/Aku seem to come back to the buoys in the fall. Can anyone argue the fact that fish follow the food source. Do you truly believe that the local shibi that show up at the FADS travel far enough away from the FADS to be picked up by the commercial boys. How...

    I have never had to deal with a leak on my boat. However I do deal with hydraulic cylinders and I bring mine down to Moos Machine Shop, Hydra Air Pacific, or D&S? on Koapaka. They all typically have all the seals needed to repair cylinders or manufacture/repair shafts. Good Luck

    In my opinion it "the rescue" should never be charged to the folks being rescued. If the mariners in trouble knew that they would have to "pay the bill" they might not be so quick to call the Coast Guard for assistance. Which could result in a larger loss of sort. Thank You for the Coast Guard...

    Tom, Hawaii does require a fishing license for Saltwater fishing. However there are areas that are off limits to fishing depending on what the year is. Its not too complicated.
