Nice report bruddha! You know, there's a spot in Kona where you can catch marlin from the shore. Hope to see a report from there by you soon! Mahalo.

Big WTG on that or however you say it in Hawaiian Smile Happy birthday when it comes. What is the word that is the exact opposite of belated? LOL.

that's a fantastic adventure 'Slinger, and a great read, nice job. Really gives me the incentive to start saving for the trip to the islands my wife has been on me about...thanks man!

South Point would be my guess, too. Has the base and depth for shorefishing for a large gamefish. Perhaps I can work up to that. There was a billfish tournament going on in Kona when I was there, but I noticed the anglers were all emptyhanded coming back. Didn't stop them from betting boisterously drunk at night.

Aloha Songslinger, nice read, mahalo. The To'au are pretty tasty if you ever get the chance. We used to also eat the Humuhumu'ele'ele, just bust out da pliers to yank the skin off. On the west side of Southpoint there are high cliffs with a nice offshore wind to take your line straight out via kite or float bag to drop off (great lobster diving too). Also between the Kona airport and town there's a road with guard shack that says OTEC which leads to Keahole Point, this point has deep blue water with drop-off basically right at the shore, many Mahimahi, Marlin, even Ahi caught there, and close to Kailua town, nice spot to try next trip out.
A hui hou.

SHEESH I almost forgot the mention the August 2005 issue of Hawaii Fishing News cover story of Sailfish caught from shore at Kalae (Southpoint). http://www.hawaiifishingnews.com/home.cfm?CFID=8049747&CFTOKEN=68213586

Nice report, Slinger! Sounds like you got in quite a bit of fishing in little time. The sharp coral sounds brutal, and the fish seem to know it.

The only chance I got to fish in the islands was on Kauai, using some cheap tackle I bought there that I couldn't cast very far. Fished in the rocky shore across the street from where we stayed and caught a variety of pretty little aquarium fare. I noticed fishing at night brought out some larger rockfish-looking fish - which we ate, also tasted similar to rockfish.

I would love to go back and try fishing a longer rod and stouter tackle, to see what might come up.

Salty.
