Had some time to burn after work.
I tried pitching a big lure to see if there were any Trevally roaming the waters behind my room - none.
I switched out the spinning rod for the flyrod and cast out a bonefish bitter and a green scud - nothing.
I resorted to the fail safe - squid. I caught 1 small grouper, 2 snappers, 3 sergeant majors and 2 humuhumunukunukuapuaa on a size 8 hook - lots of fun!!! (ALL CAUGHT AND RELEASED).
The circle hooks really do engage on the lip - these fish were all happy and healthy when let back in the water.
I also caught one ama crab with my line - it was actually pinching the line and didn't want to let go.
These are the spots where I was catching the fish.
These terns were watching the whole time.
Nice way to wind down from work!
