I was able to reel in eight Mahi Mahi on my recent trip to Hawaii. Went out of the North Shore this time. The conditions were rough with 12 foot plus swells, but the fish were biting and the crew was awesome. I highly recommend the Grand Slam out of Haleiwa. (http://sport-fishing-hawaii.com/).
Kazumi and I had a great trip to the Mokulua Islands. We're shown above with an outrigger, but we actually kayaked out from Kailua Beach. It was a five mile round trip with a stop for lunch on the Mokes and some snorkeling on Lanikai. Great trip and our guide Ikaika out of Two Good Kayaks was outstanding (http://www.twogoodkayaks.com/).
Made it to Hakkoda last week for a soak at Sukayu Hot Spring. The roads are now plowed and open. As you can see above, we had quite a bit of snow this year.
Here's a view of the snow cut from above. Kazumi had a good time sliding her way back down to the car.
Earlier this spring I hit Shariki Port for some Mebaru night fishing. Went out a few times and caught a few each time. Nothing of any size was caught, but fishing in the tetra off the port is a great time, and the Mebaru are good fighters regardless of size.
Almost trout time!
