so here we areÖ coming up on yet another summer
season here on the island. summer is
usually a very good time of year to be chasing bones here. the sun is high, the days are long, and
everyday seems to be another perfect hawaiian trade wind day.
around though at times they can be a bit skittish and non bitey. perhaps it is the bright sunlight. yes, too much sun can be a bad thing even
when sight fishing bones as the fish
just do not feel as safe when there is bright sunlight. remember the easier it is to see them, the
easier it is for them to see you. maybe
we are starting to see more signs of the fishery transforming from an untapped
fishery to becoming a good but hard fished fishery. whatever the case may be there are still a
lot of fish out there to be had.
i got out
for an afternoon just to keep in touch with whatís what out on our waters. i fished my g
loomis glx classic 6wt. rod and abel classic reel. that afternoon we encountered some really tough
fish. they didnít seem to be
aggressively feeding and looked, to me, like they would inspect every
presentation very carefully before, in most cases, deciding that the flies were
not things worthy of putting in their mouths.
out of the countless shots and rejections, we did manage to get a few
fish to eat. oddly enough two of them
were tagged fish. it made me wonder if
these tagged fish just had a greater propensity to be caught because they were,
obviously, caught before. things like
that do tend to make me wonder.
thatís really about all i got for now. i guess
the report for the week is that there are lots of bones out there right now but
donít be surprised if they are a little trickier to hook. just get out there and keep firing at them
until you find the one with your name on it.
iíll see you on the water.
an excited sean checked In with this boney he got on monday.
doug was out doing his thing as well.
i am not quite ready to proclaim that it is summertime and the living is easy. i can say for certain that it is pre-summertime and, for those willing to find it, it is full of good times.
