Nice choice, Big_e!

Sounds like you're in for some good times shopping for the right gear. Check out Sage's Xi-3 and Scott's S4S; 8 or 9 wts.; depending on the size of the bones you'll be going after on Oahu.

Looking forward to some sun and the tug of a bone or two.

Just gotta get a something to cast these with now.
I win????? What do I get? I used to live on Oahu. I caught my first Bonefish on the end of Ford Island in Pearl Harbor at the end of the Sea Plane ramp. I caught my first Tarpon, not the Florida version, there also. I also caught my first shark there too. A Black Tip Reef Shark about 3' long. They do bad things to tackle.

I was a Submariner on a Fleet Ballistic Missle Submarine when I fished there. The Utah Memorial pier is a good spot to fish for small Hammer Heads. The Sea Plane ramp is good for Bones, Pacific Tarpon, Baracuda, Jack Crevelle and the occasional odd species. I got a Goat Fish there once that was Bright yellow, turquois and pink. It was a fun place to fish. Well, I gotta run. I'm applying at the psycic hotline.
