So summer is officially here again and with that the
usual consistent warm sunny weather that makes fish hungry and fishermen happy. My friends and I have been fortunate to experience some great fishing this month for both bonefish
Fishing for papio has been quite productive for me
and my friends using streamers, poppers, and crease flies.
Hereís my happy little omilu taken on the Sage Smallmouth
Dean-o gives us the shaka.
The tug of war resulted in a nice a baby GT.
Kirk with a fatty.
Another decent whitey.
Double down! This time with a baby GT and a hybrid
GT-bluefin. I know itís weird, but I guess sometimes trevally get the jungle
Bonefish have also been around doing their
summertime chow down on the flats. The big summer tide swings make for rapidly
changing conditions on the flats, but it also gets the fishís appetite going.
You know fishing is good when even this guy gets
bit. (Sorry Drew I couldnít resist.)
Gregg hooks up too. Someone buy that man a selfie
Thatís not the way to take a proper hero shot.
ET shows us how to properly hold out the fish for
the camera. If you hold it out far enough, it'll become one of those monster bones I keep hearing about.
Tell your friends I was nice enough to let you go despite the requests for fishcake.
And to top it off, I
caught another Samoan crab on the flat. If you see one of these guys, please be
very, very careful messing with it. Those claws are no joke. The Dean-o is a
trained animal handler, and from Big Island, so heís more worried about what
pot to fit the crab into than getting pinched. Hope the kickoff to summer is bringing you
great fishing and good eats too. Aloha
