Well I just couldn't stand by and have no one in the Pacific post anything......
The first weeks of Feb. have been cold and the water temperature in Lake Wilson here on Oahu (Honolulu) is 68 degrees.... Those tropical fish, the peacock bass, have pretty much gone into hibernation. Still catching some largemouth bass, but overall fishing has been really slow.
This week a fellow angler was out testing his brand new bass boat. His dream come true. Some how he fell overboard. A lady on shore heard shouts for help and saw the boat going around in circles... She called police. Several hours later his body was recovered by divers. Sad.
When fishing alone, I always wear one of theose self inflating life vests. A gift from my wife......
