You might try a recon snorkel to see what is out there. Should have goatfish in the sand, maybe a bonefish. Papio will be on the edge of the rocks and sand. Good luck, Mems.

Mems, yup have tried the snorkel scout idea. Waves here make it tough. I am not a strong swimmer. And for some reason the ocean water down here really bothers my stomach more than home. Want to try renting a kayak.
Hope to wander over to Kehai try those beaches.

Be curious to know if you have any success. I am heading to Maui in the fall for the first time, after many visits to the Big Island and Kauai. I’m excited to give Maui a go with the fly rod!

Check out the video for Bluefin jacks at Honolua bay. Which of course is a marine sanctuary.
Very windy today tried for only an hour. No good. Dirty water coming in from the creek around the corner from us. Tough to spot anything now.

spent a couple hours at sugar beach. Very windy & waves were bad. One smallish jack attacking some bait fish. No interest in my fly. Too hard to get a good cast & retreive because of the blasted waves. He was joined by some small blue fin jacks for a short time. Very frustrating. Better than sitting on my ass in the sun.

Bring a spinning rod. Or both if you can. My 2 cents worth is its easier to fight the waves/wind here than stand there while wave’s have their way with you. Plus the long casts required here. One web site writes about using a clear casting bubble with leader & lure which makes sense to me.

I only own one spinning rod....and I bought it for my dad to use when he is visiting. I’ll throw a fly rod in the bag when I head to Maui. Can’t imagine it is going to be much different then my time fishing the Big Island or Kauai with a flyrod. Maybe I’ll catch some fish...maybe I won’t. It’s just something I do to kill time while hanging out on the beach. I don’t sit still for long periods well :).

Same here. I guess the beaches out in front of Kihei are little calmer I hear.
