Big Island Bone

Aloha, went out on April Fool's day and got this nice Big Island bone.

Got it on my TFO BVK 6wt and a TFO 340 reel with 12lb tippet. It went into the backing a couple of times and I was able to keep it out of the rocks. It swam away healthy and strong. Hope you weren't fooled on April Fool's day, Mems.

Sound like a good time. Had a great trip to Kauai recently but only fished for an hour. Wind and surf straight at me, not good. Family trip, gardens, snorkeling, cocktails, dining, warm sun sun sun. I'll get them next time (as usual).
Naz fich.

Thanks guys, it was nice to see a plan come together and battle one of this size and land it in tough conditions. Hawaii is really an quality vs quantity type of fishery. Don.

That bonefish is a toad! Must have been tense fighting it around the sharp lava rock.
