Sweet. How far out were you? First time I went kayak fishing on Maui,
we were a mile of Makena Landing....and ran into two Tiger Sharks attacking
a turtle. Only other time I did it, I was HUGGING the coastline. :lol:

Would like to get one of my own though. Nice catches you been getting.
Now on Maui. Choose your nickname wisely....

Hey Pete, got him about a quarter mile from molokini. I dont usually like to go out that far but with no wind and epic water, I had no choice but to chance um :D Buddy system always for sure. even small game damashi get action in 100 feet, and off Makana it don't take long to be out in that depth.

Wow, that's out there. We were using the buddy system, but so were
the sharks :lol:

We were dropping for Nabetas out there in about 100 ft. Good grounds.

I kno that these might not be impressive to most anglers... but dis was my first catch on a Kayak!! The weke was from damashi... and the moano was from whipping. Cheeee!!! Caught them at sand Island....

Image

Started yak-ing just this month, still a newbie. So... any other kayakers out there that might wanna give a braddah some tips on catching some "advanced" fish? Don't get me wrong... catching weke is fun and satisfying already... but where can I go to get the better fish, and what kine rig should I be using??

Install a rod holder on your kayak, buy some floating swimmer lures like the 4" yo-zuri crystal minnow, and troll it 30-50 yards out behind
you while you paddle along. I only did this once, and caught a nice sized Kawele'a....and some slimy stickfish :?

Good way to go after more aggresive "gamey" fish.

you should start by taking the fish you caught in the pic, putting a live bait hook in its nose and free lining it in 50 to 100 feet of water. and hang on to your pole tight :D

only the 2nd time hooking up to one o'io from my kayak...make the mistake of tightening my drag too much, didn't realize how strong it was. Almost tipped my boat, so I had to loosen again and tire it out. A few minutes fighting it... probably one of the best feelings in the world when you hear your reel screem, then the thrill of fighting it to the end. :D
