    All Day & Night For 3 Strikes & Nothing To Show:(

    This cold & wet December weather has seen a decline in nearshore species. Also with the heavy rains the fresh water intrusion has also lowered the water temperature along with the shorter days. I've been asking around & even the stores have less fresh fish. Getting harder to find some near shore action.

    I spent 2 days & 1 night trying to make this. It was my pleasure to meet Nick Kalen & his friends at 5am?! I was almost out of water, food & bait. I had to change action cameras as i only use roughly 10% of my video segments. I have to bring so much gear that i'm forced to use a utility wagon. But at the end of the day when i put everything together, i smile and realize it's all worth it.

    I was there helping out these guys but they had it under control. I'm very happy for Nick. He was a great angler & a nice guy. This video i'm dedicating to Nick. I hope when you look back at this that you realize you have my respect. The Bonefish "O'io" was a fattie! And the Golden Trevally "Pa'oPa'o" is indeed a delicious treasure! I hope your wife will enjoy the meal you caught for her.

    happy new year and look out for ciguatera! if you know someone who got it, it is not viewed as 'worth the risk' in most cases.....................
    the golden mentioned here is a prime risk

    Ulua / GT are also very risky, as are barracuda

    tight lines,

    I had it BAD back in the 80's from a large Omilu off Barber's Pt. Had temperature reversal & every joint was aching.
