Default Sunset Bonefish in Hawaii

Evening incoming tide yesterday was happening with 30 shots at tailing fish all in the big to monster sizes. We pricked 4, broke off 2, and landed a 8.5# bone in an hour just before dark.. The sunset was unreal with a double rainbow coming down on the end of the flat. The bones where easy to see with golden light reflecting off their tales, and the crazy thing was you could actually hear them tailing before you would turn and see them. Thats a big tail that makes sound moving back and forth propelling itself into the manta shrimp whole using that big vacuum to flush him out.

Dave caught this bone on a perfect crab with extended orange and black legs.
7# with floating line
