On the Fly -

I went flyfishing in the morning and trolling on a small boat in the afternoon. I caught this small wrasse and two of the bigger (more colorful ones) in the surf. I saw several bonefish and even a school of moi (threadfins) but they weren't giving me the time of day. As the tide filled in, the trevally started their runs. I hooked up with this one but several other big ones bypassed the fly (gummy minnow). Trolling was worse - I dragged a 5" MW Squid Lure and got an 8 pound Bluefin Trevally - but nothing else hit. I am really starting to correlate my actual fishing experience with the Hawaiian Lunar Calendar - new moon fishing is low yield.
