Hawaii Peacock Bass Are Spawning

Just 2 days after we found the peacock bass paired up and claiming a spot to spawn...
the rain came down and the water level came up 6 feet.... Now those spawning fish are deep and there is no way to see their nests.

On the positive side, there has been good action along the shore as the peacock bass are chasing shad and little chiliads.

Visiting from San Diego, eight year old Nick took full advantage of an early birthday present (a fishing trip) to add Hawaii peacock bass to his large and growing list of caught fish. I must say it was a real pleasure to have someone on the boat that could cast as well as he does. He was also tying on his own hooks. Watch out for this kid.... his goal is to host his own fishing show.

We're on Oahu (Honolulu) We have our one little freshwater lake. Lake Wilson (Wahiawa Res.) Fortunatly it is stocked with peacock and largemouth. There are peacock bass on Kauai also.

The oio (bonefish) action seems to be picking up. That's more of a quality, rather than a quantity fishery. All of the bonefishing flats are on Molokai, Oahu, and Kauai. There are guides available on those three islands. Lots of people visit Maui.... no flats or freshwater there. So they take the ferry over to Molokai for the day.
