Tilapia on the leeward (ish) side

Post by Oscarone » Sat Jun 08, 2013 12:03 pm

I have always wanted to scratch my bluegill fishing itch, and thought it would be fun to go after some tilapia.

Until a couple months ago I lived near the mouth of Pearl Harbor, and all the lagoons were filled with these guys...but signs said to not eat the fish. Does anyone know anyplace on or near the leeward side that has good, safe tilapia? I would love some help! Any great, non-leeward side spots are also great.

Thanks!

Oscar,
Maybe get yourself a Freshwater Fishing License and head up to Lake Wilson in Wahiawa...? Earthworms would probably be a good bait choice.
Nuuanu reservoir during catfish season used to produce some huge Talapia.

Never targeted Talapia so can't help you further....

You might try asking here:

More freshwater guys there. People eat tilapia they catch, but I'm not sure it's really safe no matter where you get them. Lake Wilson is probably your safest bet.
