Honolulu - Saltwater Fishing Report
The conditions this past week were absolutely ideal! Many days were bluebird skies with very light winds. Of course i had very lttle on the books with the usual pre-holiday slow period.
Capt. Terry Duffield managed to get out a couple days hooking and losing a couple but this one wasn't quite so lucky. This is Luke from Alaska with an 11.5 lb monster caught on a Duffer crab
These double digit fish are actually quite common. At least we see them regularly but landing them of course is another story. A fish this size is at least 10 years old and no dummy.
That's why i can't stress more that you practice somewhat before your next outing whether it's to hawaii or the florida keys. I consider them inshore marlin. Catching one of these 'fish of a lifetime' is quite a feat. The key is to stay focused and positive. When playing this game you are always one cast away from doing something very special!
Honolulu Fishing Forecast:
The nice thing about winter in hawaii is that the water temps never get too cold for bonefish unlike the florida keys that can dip into the 60's. Take advantage of the nice days. Last minute calls to your guide are worth a shot.
they may have a last minute opening or could squeeze you in.
