Aloha from Hawaii 2 years 6 months ago #21197

I love all fish from 1" talapia to 1300lb blue marlin, and hope to post all my crazy adventures all this website when I can.

I run a outfitter for bonefish in Hawaii on my flats boat but also fish offshore for marlin and tuna, and peacock bass in the lakes, basically if it swims I try to catch it!!

thanks and tight lines

Holy crap that's a freakin monster! Wow, thanks for posting!

I didn't know there were bonefish in Hawaii...that's good to know...I was actually thinking if I ever were to move from Florida (which is probably not gonna happen) it would more than likely be to Hawaii, and was wondering what type of inshore fish there was.

Are there many kayak fishermen there? I was thinking the waves are too big there and must make it hard to fish inshore. Is that true? Waves here are very small most of the time so it makes fishing inshore very easy from a kayak.

Kayak fishing is great here, guys fish the flats for bonefish and octopus with spears, but then fish offshore for snapper and wahoo when it is calm. Slow troll a mackerel from your kayak and you could catch a yeloowfin tuna or mahi mahi....

Nice videos! If you ever make your way over here to Florida drop a line here on the site ( :laughing: ) and you'll be taken care of! Come catch a 35" Tampa dock dwelling snook and see if you can turn that sucker away from the pilings! Billfish are on my bucket list, I think I will probably need some more dough for that though. I should probably stop posting on fishing forums during work if I want more dough!
