  1. Any recommendations on charters/guides or even surf fishing spots around Waikiki? I am going the End of March into the first week of April and would like to get the line wet. Just looking for recommendations on anything to make my fishing experience there enjoyable. Thanks in advance!
  2. I talked to a couple of you guys at the fling about fishing Maui. I'm leaving this Sunday and looking for more info. I'll be staying in Kihei on the south shore and I'm planning to take an 8' steelhead rod and my 1/2 to 2 oz 10' rod. Suggestions? Ideas? Experience? I'll post pictures! AP/JLC
  3. I'm headed to Oahu, Hawaii the second weekend in April and I'm bring along 2 spinning rods and a fly rod. I've been doing some researching both here and other sites and I think I have developed a good plan. Anyways, I'll be splitting a few days between Honolulu, the north shore, and the east side (Kaneohe Bay). For fly fishing I am planning on bringing my 8wt setup with floating line, stripping basket, dive booties for wading, pliers, and an assortment of flies including gotchas, crab flies, clousers, etc. I plan on bonefishing at the airport flats while in Honolulu, and possibly getting a guide (nervous waters) although I already have an offshore charter trip booked so not sure I can swing both. Hopefully I get some good shots at bonefish, but I will have no problem catching other species such as jacks or various reef fish. On the north shore, I'm not sure if there will really be much opportunity for fly fishing due to big surf and dramatic coastline, but I'll likely be tossing topwater with the surf rod if the conditions aren't too crazy. On the east side, Kaneohe Bay seems like a cool place and I plan on renting a kayak to explore the bay and the 'sunken island' at the bay entrance. So hopefully I will either get some shots on the kayak or the flats in the bay. From what I've read it sounds like the shore fishing is fairly tough as it is pretty fished out! Though I guess its not too surprising there are many small tropical islands where this is an issue. Anyways, I'll report back after my trip and if anyone has any last minute advice let me know!
  4. I am very fortunate to be heading to Oahu next month and will have some time to fish! I will be spending several days in Honolu (southshore), Haleiwa (northshore), and Kahaluu (Kaneohe Bay East Side). I've already done some searching here and on other sites and from what I can gather the shore/surf fishin on Oahu is not that great as its a lot of small fish since the locals keep everything. So I am trying to figure out what to pack as there are extensive flats/reef break with bonefish in Honolulu, big surf on northshore, and calm Kaneohe bay. At the very least I will be taking my 8wt fly rod for bones and a 7ft M/MH action travel rod for throwing small to medium plugs and jigs in calm water/flats. I'm debating whether its worth bringing along a 10ft 2-piece surf rod for throwing plugs in the surf on the northshore as I hear they do have GTs but sounds like guys just use heavy weight & bait and a spotty fishery. I'm also interested in potentially going out on a charter boat but its sounds like most charters are just a glorified boat ride. If that doesn't pan out I think I might hire a guide at Nervous Waters fly shop and do some flats fishing. Any other thoughts or input would be appreciated!
  5. hussein that is all
  6. Of the two days I had with a surf guide, one was cancelled by him (intense lightning all over the beach) and the other by me (couldn't find tabi that fit me). The fly casting I did on my own was complicated by strong on-shore winds, not the normal strong trade winds of which I was warned, but more erratic stuff driven by a hurricane that passed north of Kauai and managed to mess up the normal wind patterns. The weather was unseasonably hot and muggy, also a consequence of this summer's unbroken series of hurricanes. The locals were as unhappy as i was, I felt I was trapped in a gorilla's armpit. Fortunately, my heat-loving wife was completely content, and the local scenery is as spectacular as anyone could want. But, no fishing stories or pictures to post. If I get there again, I do have a pair of felt-bottomed, metal-studded shoes that would have kept my feet under me and made fishing possible. Hawaiian angling footware doesn't run to studs, it runs to felt-bottomed rubber sandals, traditionally made from old tires I think. The good ones have a split-toe design and the biggest I could find were size 15. Alas, the old prosthetic I wear in the water doesn't have a split toe, so .... moral is to bring your own footwear. Brain is still in transit. More later.
  7. I've been following this forum for awhile just never posted, but this is the first place I go to read about the latest fishing topics, so i figured this would be the best place to ask about what the fishing is like in Hawaii being that I will be residing there for a few years, what I need to plan on getting if I dont already have, and just general experiences there. Thanks guys!
