Spring - Good Start

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. (

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 (

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!


  1. Great Mahi Mahi !! They looks like Japanease fish "siira".Are they sisters?

  2. Spring fishing is the best. For me, it is the best time of year to go on fishing trips because many species are very active when the water first starts warming up. And yes! Mahimahi! I believe that they are known for their fighting ability and strength. It's the fight in them that makes them a valuable catch for sports fisherman. Amazing!

  3. Hi! Fascinating photos on a cool blog...on my blog roll. Thanks

  4. fantastic pics and nice start for the spring..good luck

  5. Love your website. I PCS'd to Misawa this year. I hope to get into at least fishing if not hunting while I am here. Any advice? Or should I just go to MWR/FSS and ask for info?

  6. Hey there! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.

    Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about
    making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

  7. It is fantastic blog providing you with us something to laugh. I find myself really fresh after every post for you personally. Keep providing us such posts. Thanks for this.

  8. Hey I'm coming out with an app for fishermen and was wondering if you'd be willing to try it out. If you like it maybe you could mention it in one of your blog posts, and in exchange I could list your blog on my sponsor page! Let me know what you think - Kyle.
