big island report

Had my two cousins over with me for a big island adventure, they really liked Waipio valley.

Took them offshore for a day, we went all around but only got this one small ahi. Anna was stoked, and we made ahi kabobs for pupuus.

I took them inshore fishing over in Kona and got this nice yellow spot. They are the best eating trevally. I hooked a 10lb bone, but it straightened my hook like a bobby pin.

They left and I went offshore yesterday and got this 30lb ono, and a couple of mahi. We also got about two dozen small ahi and aku. My friend's son needed poke for a party. Hope you summer's are off to a good start. I go to LA and San Diego next week and have a mako on the fly day set up for father's day with my son and brother in law. Later in June I will be in Montana for some trout action on the bitteroot and rock creek. I have a float set up for the blackfoot. Should be a good trip. I will post pics when I get back. Mems.

Don, have you ever tried fishing that black sand beach at the bottom of Waipio? I've fished the beach down in the Pololu valley, no luck but I've heard stories....

I fished pololu a few years ago. Awesome place, super beautiful. The surf was angry. I got clipped by a bowling ball of lava that a wave had picked up. No love para mi. Buddy in Hawi told me about monster bones in there. Also stories of a resident GW

Great fish Mems

That surf is usually angry...I've heard those o'io stories too. I have yet to actually talk to anyone who's caught something there.

That is classic murky, roily shark water. Wouldn't surprise me. Probably plenty of boar and other critters get washed out to sea there.

Hopefully that's on the opposite side of the island where I'll be kayaking next month!
