In Japan, I have caught small yellowfin tuna, yellowtail, sawara (like sierra), and this year I added shore caught dorado to my list.

If you have time, you can read about it in Pacific Coast Sportfishing Magazine...I write for the mag, and blog for the e-zine (the link is free, and can be viewed by anybody).

Nice glad to see your reports again. Thanks for the link. I know a guy who caught a nice yellow fin from the beach in HI. I'll look for the youtube video.

In the title is says you are some sort of rim specialist? Sexy! :D



Getting a dorado from shore is pretty damn cool and on a popper no less. I wish we had the opportunity here in so cal.

I lived on the Big Island of Hawaii from 1994 - 1996. I read two stories in Hawaiin Fishing News (Hawaii's version of Western Outdoors News). Confirmed by pictures and a bradah at work that knew the anglers. One day in 1995, these two dudes slid baits down from a cliff into deep water. They SLAYED Ono (Wahoo) and Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna) in an insane bite. They had a sliding gaff (common in Hawaiin cliff fishing) to stick the fish at color and haul them up. If my memory serves me right, they got 3 yellowfin tuna to 75 lbs. and 2 Wahoo to 45 lbs.
