October was good for Mahimahi with some nice catches in the 25lb plus range and days of multiple catches as pictured in the Magic photo above. We also had some nice Blue Marlin caught and/or released this month as well with several over 300lbs. The Ahi were also still biting with some nice sized Ahi (Yellowfin Tuna) brought in. Look for more Mahimahi into November as well as the Big Eye Tuna which come around this time of year. We also get Blue Marlin year round so there’s always a shot at a nice Blue.

The bass fishing on Kauai was great this month for some nice Small Mouth Bass which are strong fighters. Tom says the bass in the rivers where he fishes are strong fighters compared to lake bass as they have to battle the currents. The photo above is a nice approximately 4lb Small Mouth Bass and another almost as large was also caught on this same trip. The Peacock Bass have not been biting well this year, probably due to the flooding from the hurricane earlier in the season so hopefully we will get a better Peacock Bass bite in the spring. The river is beautiful and the Smalls are biting so it’s still a great trip with Tom.
