Default Hawaii bonefish video


Insane fishing this week 2 bones over 10#s with many releases in the 4-9# range. Clousers and charleys with some snapping shrimp patterns taking the lead for over all bites. #4-8 hooks medium to light weight eyes from tungsten smalls to large bead eyes.

Very nice video, Hennessy. Lots of nice sized fish there too, for sure. I'd love to get there one day, but it's a lot of bucks from the east coast.

Thanks for putting up the video. I know it takes a lot of time.

Cheers,
Jim

I used to catch Bone fish in Hawaii when I was stationed there in the Navy. The sea plane ramp end of Ford Island was a good spot. I never got a 10 pounder, that I remember anyway. I also caught Pacific Tarpon, Baracuda, Sharks, and Jacks there. I miss Hawaii. Nice video.

wow Mike nice video,,,,, and I can say this because I just fished with mike last saturday the 22nd---> those bones there are huge and they are everywhere we had 10# taylors all around us and if I wasn't such a beginner they wouldn't of broke my tippets and I also wouldn't of spooked about 20 huge ones before the sun even came up!

I flew from Boston and all you guys have to find a way to go there (or stop for a morning on the way back from X-mas Island) ,,, I'm already planning for my next trip with Mike in 2011..

already sick of this NE weather,, its 0 degrees outside, I'm already sick with a bad cold , and theres nowhere to fish

I watched a fishing show this morning called Pirates of the Flats. In it, they mentioned that just a few years ago, Bonefish world wide were consindered to be one species. Albula vulpes. Genetics done with fin clips has shown that there are at least three species in the Caribean alone. Given this, you have to bet on the side that Hawaiian Bonefish are a seperate species. There is a place you can get a fin clip kit so they can research this. The contact address is bonefish@mote.org . Not sure if this is something you would be interested in, but it's something to consider.
